Diagnosed with sickle cell as an infant, PaulKrost has faced numerous health scares, including multiple ICU visits and major surgeries. As a result, this lead to Paul’s desire to help in the aid of less fortunate children across the world. However, like many young boys growing up in a fatherless household in the inner city, he had to deal with the lures of wild street life that was often glamorized by hip-hop culture. PaulKrost began his own journey as a hip-hop artist as early as grade school. By middle school and early high school, he and his best friend were making music with a small label in New York City. This, however, conflicted with his convictions about life and faith.
Throughout high school, PaulKrost struggled with the implications of his belief in Jesus Christ. This struggle continued until junior year of high school, when he decided to completely commit to following Jesus. This meant giving up a once embraced wild lifestyle and beginning to allow his music to reflect his inward values. Values uncommon to mainstream hip-hop, such as respecting women, encouraging education, and embracing non-violence.
Even without the release of his debut project, PaulKrost has a growing international fan base. He continues to work toward accomplishing his dream of making a lasting impact by creating and performing his original music.
