Minister Bryan L. Oakley was one of the first artist's signed to Dash Entertainment, precursor of Rocafella Records/Management, in 1992. Following his calling to the ministry, he began recording gospel musik after being licensed as a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ in Los Angeles. Seeing a definite niche for himself, minister oakley began working with noteworthy hip-hop and west coast rap producers to compile Preacha Man, one of the most forward thinking gospel projects of our time! One of the featured artists is Ryan 'Binky Mac' Garner on 'it's a ministry baby', formerly a member of the gold selling rap duo, allfrumthai, and producer of masterful tracks for Mack 10 and Ice Cube. Preacha Man has been nominated 'Best Rap 2004' by the Southern California Gospel Announcer's Guild and sales are steady climbing as people listen to this style of gospel independently forged yet right in step with this generations musikal taste! Minister Oakley displays adept singing ability as well as lyrical mastery. Preacha Man is truly the best balance for a male artist endeavoring in the 'oil and water' of rap and rhythm&praise (or R&P), and yet true to the Word of God! Minister Oakley wrote, arranged, performed and co-produced the project and insisted no names be capitalized in the lyric insert save those of God as an illustration of what really matters in gospel musik! For any inquisitive Biblical scholars, Preacha Man comes with a comprehensive lyric insert to be proven with the Holy Scriptures! Look for more from the Cherubim Musik Group, which specializes in 'provocative' gospel! Now listen and enjoy this one for the world to hear in the Name of Jesus Christ!
