Gary Napper aka “G.Nap”, hails from the streets of Harrisburg, Pa. An 80’s baby as some would call it, he would be exposed to an emerging musical art form known as “hip hop. At the tender age of five, he would fall in love with the energy of the Fat Boys, Run Dmc; and in his teenage years more hardcore artist were getting his attention such as the gangster rappers of today.
At the age of 16 he would embrace the talents that GOD gave him and use it to glorify things he didn’t believe in. The son of a pastor in the inner city, Gary was wondering how he could incorporate his gift in the church but somehow took a turn down the wrong path and started embracing the lifestyle that so many of today’s youth embrace. He would soon put out mix tapes and had a heavy underground buzz performing under the name “Q. Montana of Maja League.
After hearing the voice of GOD for the 1st time at the age of 18, Gary knew that there was a calling placed on his life but ran the streets of Harrisburg until the birth of his daughter ( Alaia) at age 24 had slowed him down. “ It was hard to live a life I knew I wouldn’t approve for my daughter” said Gary. After witnessing friends in and out of jail and seeing his own life spared so many times, Gary would soon fade away from the rap scene and work to support his family. After a young pastor showed him a documentary/sermon titled the “ Truth Behind Hip Hop”, Gary knew that he had to denounce the enemy that tried to use his gift to tear down Gods kingdom and use his talents for CHRIST.
Today Gary is an ordained Elder, married father of three children, that uses his experiences to shine a path to Jesus Christ. A man of multiple talents (playwright, actor, personal trainer, entrepreneur, etc.), doing whatever he can to reach the lost and bring glory to God.
Gary created a new form of rap called “ Kingdom Water”. “I don’t want to just entertain our youth and fans of rap music; I want to lead them to the alter and watch them experience the Glory of GOD manifest in their bellies. GOD told me to call my ministry Establish The Kingdom Ministries not Establish The Kingdom Records or Entertainment.”
With songs fused with rap, poetry, preaching, and serious praise and worship, you are sure to enjoy his music ministry no matter what religion, background, age, etc. you are. With anthems like “ Prayed Up” and hits like “Heart of a Champion, Just Trying To Love You” and more; you will be inspired and without a doubt know that GOD is behind this young man. G.Naps debut album “ To GOD Be The Glory” is considered an underground classic by many in the CHH genre. With his sophomore project entitled “Faith Stretch: The Chronicles of Montana” soon to be released, serving as a prequel to his current ministry as G-Nap, he is sure to reach the masses as the Lord directs his footsteps…
