Good Morning my babies! It’s Monday and per usual, our day to highlight who hot and talented in the wonderful world of Entertainment. Today’s crush is probably best known for his singles ‘Raise Hell’ and ‘(Creflo) Almighty Dollar‘ and just recently we got wind that he’s now boo’d up with our big sister Brandy.
Sir the Baptist is this week’s #CelebrityCrush.
Sir the Baptist is an upcoming rapper who infuses a lot of gospel, jazz, and pop into his tracks. His story is definitely one of empowerment – before making it to the mainstream, Sir the Baptist was a homeless Lyft driver honing his craft with a desire to make it. Prior to his music career, Stokes worked at a Chicago advertising agency as a Director of Digital Marketing. Sir would often work alongside music legend Rodney Jerkins on campaigns for major brands.
Just recently Sir the Baptist released his highly anticipated debut album “Saint or Sinner” and while snagging several vocalists for the project, we can’t help but make mention that he has snatched up the Vocal Bible herself for one of his most powerful tracks “Deliver Me”. Check out the full audio after the jump.
Produced by Sir himself and inspired by a true story of his sister suffering physical abuse at the hands of the church deacon who was also her husband, the song boasts an empowering message of forgiveness and raw, endearing energy that will leave you speechless and eager to hear more from the self-proclaimed Hip Hop chaplain.
What makes this duet even more beautiful is that Sir and Brandy just made their relationship public and we couldn’t be more happier for our sister! The two have been taking turns on social media sharing intimate photos of them spending time together and we are absolutely here for it!
In a set of images, including one of Sir and Brandy lounging on a couch with Sir the Baptist’s arm wrapped around Brandy’s shoulder, she shared a special message for the musician: “#PureGold @sirthebaptist thank you for taking me around #NYC yesterday,” she began. “The city looks brighter through your eyes. #Also, your music has truly changed my life… can’t wait for everyone to feel your truth…”
This union is one of beauty!
