Roy Tosh is a rapper born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana. He is a fresh, young, talented rapper with a profound message. When he was a student in high school, he lived for the limelight of fame on the basketball court and the benefits of his earned reputation when he stepped off the court. After graduating, God encountered him in such a powerful way that he waved goodbye to that “personal fame,” and began a relentless pursuit of Christ. Despite not having a musical background to pull from, Tosh found himself filled with a message that poured out of his soul through Hip Hop music.
Tosh remembers the influence that rap artists had on his teenage years and knew that there was no better way for him to reach others with a positive message than though music. He delivers an authentic message about life and adds to it the hope that is only found through the Gospel.
