Artist Interview: Brian Turner
Tell us about yourself and your music
I was born and raise in the streets of New York following Rap artist of the seventies and trying to scratch like them. I always dreamed that Hip Hop would be as big as it is today. I just wish I would have prepared myself for it. Anyway, in the seventies I hung out with three individuals throwing small parties and trying to get some kind of routine together as a group. That never happened, as got older we all went our separate ways, but the music stay in me up until this day and forever. I wrote this song “Be Blessed And Get That Word” to inspire people to read and follow the word of God. I am not perfect. I fall short many of times, but thanks to his grace and mercy, I get another chance to get right. So you be blessed and enjoy the music.
Talk to us more about your latest release
My latest release is a Gospel song named” Be Blessed And Get That Word” The word of god is all we have to fight the enemy. It cuts like a two edge sword and can change your life and mine, if you’re obedient to the word of God. It’s not easy to be obedient and stay on course to the word of God, but we all have to read our Bibles, stay prayed up and sing songs of Zion when the enemy is attacking us. We must absorb the word of God and follow his ways to make the mark. Jesus died for our sins and we must die daily also. We must pick up our cross and follow Jesus, to become fishermen of men That’s what ” Be Blessed And Get That Word” is about. Making a change eating the word of God and living for Christ to make a complete U-turn, repent and following God.
What inspired you to write this release?
In my own walk with God, I’ve gotten closer to the Lord and decided to write about it. I did this to tell this fallen world that the word of God stands above all things. The Word was here before we got here and will be here after we are all gone. Praise God! So, if I can bring one individual to Christ through this song, then it was well written for. I don’t know, maybe it was God who inspired me to write this song. God Bless!!
