The California native is a son of the hip-hop movement, a student of the culture, and one of the leader in a new genre of underground hip-hop music with a Christian exalting message. Growing up in the era when Gangsta rap and East Coast/West Coast rivalries were dominating the urban music scene, STL was a bit different from many of his peers. Taking the time to delve into the origins of hip-hop with his Asian-American, Latino and Caucasian friends while in high school, fleeting music trends didn’t sway STL – his passion was tied to the core tenants of the genre.

Influenced by some of his favorite rappers at the time – Heavy D, Wu Tang Clan, Mob Deep, Common, and others – STL gained his concentration more and more into the music.

It was there that he begin rapping in a group called Redeemed Thought, spreading the knowledge he gained from his classes to diverse audiences. From the beginning of his career, Stephen the Levite chose to be direct about his faith in his lyrics. After seeing a musical group perform which did not disclose their faith as a driving force behind their music, STL determined that he would be upfront about his musical intentions to his audiences. STL became engrossed in the music that Philadelphia based Christian hip-hop group Cross Movement was doing – the group’s work would become his standard for excellence and a model for his own career.

Stephen the Levite has a burden on his heart for this generation. “I want to see the family get straight. It all starts with men being responsible, taking care of their kids, being a part of churches and living as upright men. Those are the building blocks of a healthy community.” When asked why the name, Stephen the Levite his answer is simple – “Stephen, the martyr is my hero – he didn’t have a title or prestige, but he stood up for God and people responded to the message he delivered. That is the type of person I want to model, the legacy I want to leave.”
