CRUCIFIX / Bio

Born in Atlanta Georgia, raised in Central and East Africa, Crucifix spent much of his early childhood bouncing from continent to continent, soaking in a wide influence of music and culture. By the time he was eighteen, he was native to fifteen different countries and fluent in three languages, but it was his unveiling passion for music that would soon take center stage in his life. At the age of twelve he began teaching himself to play the piano, writing and producing his first music, recording from the comfort of his bedroom, making tapes and designing the covers by hand. In 2005 he released his first fully independent and self produced album “My Life’s Prayer”, under the alias BabyBlue.

The controversial double disc debut took the HipHop Underground by storm, sealing in his unique and fluid signature sound. Mixing fast-fire Southern Rap with smooth Rock vocals, a touch of Soul and no holds barred lyrical content, Crucifix began to set a new standard for cross-genre music. By 2010 he had expanded his reach into film, his riveting life story was published in a book by the multiplatinum, Grammy, Dove and American Music Award winning band Casting Crowns, and he completed his third full length album "Cruce Signati", featuring Atlanta HipHop legends YoungbloodZ, Ceelo Green's Goodie Mob and Outkast's Dungeon Family, landing his first spot on FM radio and signing his first record deal.

In 2013 he had released his first full length reality style documentary, "Road To Chernobyl", made his first appearance on both VH1's "The T.O. Show" and MTV in the stunning cinematic music video "Splinter" with Bubba Sparxxx. By the end of 2013 he released his fourth studio album "Acid Reign" featuring Bubba Sparxxx, Nappy Roots and Sean Paul, making his first imprint on XM and worldwide Radio. In 2015 he touched the Billboard Charts Top 20 with both the Lacs' "Outlaw In Me" and Moonshine Bandits' "Blacked Out" albums, touring across the country. Known for his intense energy and passionate, heartfelt delivery, Crucifix continues to push the limits of cross-genre music.
