SSnLITE is a married, Ministry Rap duo based on their marriage, their love for music, and their commitment to Christ. The duo formed in 2006. Prior to the duo forming in 2006, they were your average everyday working married couple. They went to work, came home, invested into other careers, and repeated the same ol’ same over again. Also, they were building up a stronger marriage and overcoming obstacles and challenges. But everything they went through from G-town to Marietta, to Louisiana, and back to Marietta, they had no idea that they were building a wonderful ministry and marriage for the glory of God.

Q: What made you get into the music business?
A: We believe it was a calling from God; we were not seeking the career itself, but seeking to better our life. And you know, if you have ever read the Bible story of Simon Peter, our experience was similar to that!
Q: Who were your inspirations?
A: Of course, The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. Also, any artist that stood for original and creative music: like Michael Jackson, Mary Mary, and The Cross Movement.
Q: What do you bring different to the table?
A: Well, a lot! But to sum it up into a few words: our marriage, unity, and uniqueness. It’s rare to see a married couple producing music together! And happily!
Q: What kind of feedback have you had thus far?
A: Different kinds. Some has been bad, some has been good. Mostly, it has been about our music production skills, and the style of our lyrics. But overall, the feedback we’ve been getting has been predictable, because of our versatility. But we do admit we are still growing as artists.
Q: What have been some of your challenges?
A: In general, it has been a challenge to balance being an artist, a producer, and a minister. But to name a few areas, promoting our material would be one because being an independent artist and doing something that’s different, we have to push hard to get our name out and be heard; another one is consistency with being an artist, because at this time we don’t have a lot of support, so we have to make sure we are sticking with it despite of that; and lastly, performing live has been a challenge because lately there have been long gaps between our performances and by not performing often, we tend to not deliver at our best when the time comes around.
Q: What kinds of support have your received?
A: Mainly, family, friends, and a couple of listeners of our music. But again, because we are doing something that’s different, at this time it has been slim- but we realize that if we continue to stay consistent with promotion and with our music production, there will be more opportunities for support. On the other hand, we have collaborated with a few artists and producers in our songs.
Q: If you needed help with anything, what would it be?
A: Definitely promotion and any additional resources whether physical or digital to help with our music production.
Q: What is your favorite bible verse? Book? Etc..and why?
A: Well, one of our favorite Bible verses is: Proverbs 15:17-“A BOWL OF VEGETABLES WITH SOMEONE YOU LOVE IS BETTER THAN STEAK WITH SOMEONE YOU HATE.” It reminds us that we don’t need a lot to love somebody. Also, it’s encouraging to us when we don’t hear from people from time to time.
Q: Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
A: More accomplished in our music production. Maybe we might have a record deal, a production deal, or anything along that line. Also, we wouldn’t mind producing more material for other artists as well! And oh yeah, travelling to different states and countries spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ would be nice too!
Q: What upcoming projects do you have that readers should know about (if any)?
A: We currently have a promotional album out that is called “Tha Peace Examplez: New Foundation”. It is available for download for only a donation of your choice. Also, our single “Antidote”, is now available on ITunes. We are currently working on a few songs that may be released in addition to our current album. In the near future, Christalite(the female of the duo), will be releasing her solo album as well. But stay tuned! We are always “cooking in the kitchen”!
