Growing up in the small town of Middlesex, North Carolina – Samuel Arthur Pierce, known as Sam P, first came in touch with hip hop music through his childhood friend. Initially getting his influences from Notorious B.I.G, Nas, Big L, EPMD, Wu-Tang Clan, and Mobb Deep.
After dedicating his life to Christ in 2007, and committing to following Jesus, eight years later he was inspired to write rap music again with a different focus, giving honor to Christ. This time instead of making it a hobby, he decided to take it seriously now getting his influences from Andy Mineo, Lecrae, Trip Lee, and Bizzle. After talking with his wife and friend in 2015, Sam was encouraged to start his own music production business and independent label Renew Your Mind Music, formerly known as Renew Your Mind Records. His purpose is to use hip hop music to encourage and inspire others through the gospel of Jesus Christ as well as a tool for evangelism to build meaningful relationships with other people young and old.
In the same year he started the label, Sam created his debut album ‘Renewed’ right in his home. After much studying and reading on mixing, mastering, and making beats, he co-produced and created the cover art to his second album ‘Be Still’ which was the start of his first hit single “Giantkiller” that was featured on the Trackstarz Line 4 Line podcast and YouTube channel.
Sam has also been featured in MusicLov3rz Magazine, Shine Your Light Radio with Nancy Mattox, Rep Your City Praise Radio, and was nominated for male Gospel Hip Hop artist of the Year in 2018. As an independent artist on his own label, father, and husband Sam’s main focus is to please God and be the best representation of him to his wife, kids, family, friends, and enemies.
Greensboro, NC – Renew Your Mind Music artist and founder, Sam P., enlisted fellow labelmates Vessel Piece and Trizzy Tre to remind listeners why Jesus came to earth with their Christmas Day release, “The Cost”.
Following his previous single, “Wheat or Tare”, from October, Sam P. is finishing up 2020 with one final single.
While we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ and the traditions that surround it, we cannot lose sight of what He chose to do during His final days. He freely died so we all could have eternal life. The cost of embracing Jesus came with a price.
“Although we face trials of many kinds, what we face in life cannot be compared to the joy we experience when we fully set our mind and focus on Jesus, even in the midst of a pandemic,” explains Sam P. “Joy is not the absence of problems, but the presence of God. It is a cost to obtain eternal life, but, in the end, it will be well worth it when Jesus returns.”
YJO, of Enoch Flow Records, produced “The Cost” that features fellow Renew Your Mind Music artists Vessel Piece and Trizzy Tre. Adding the finishing touches to the track are Tip Beats and J. Crum/Streetlight Sounds with engineering and cover art respectively.
The Cost was released December 25th 2020
