The Die Daily Team has added yet another element to their influential roster of artists, producers, singers, pastors, and dj’s. The collective that includes the likes of Kadence, Sean C. Johnson, Street Hymns, OnBeat Music, Halo Hitz and many more is now home to San Diego-based emcee Gerry Skrillz.
Coming strong off his first full length album “No Apologies“, Skrillz has most recently been making waves with his newest single Godspeed feat Kishon Furlow and is expected to release his new EP before the end of year.
While The Die Daily Team is well known for their undeniable gathering of talent, the movement looks to do much more than just create music. Die Daily strives to impact their communities and especially the youth of this generation with the power of The Gospel. At the heart of the movement is the need to live a life that exemplifies dying daily to self and serving others.
Gerry shares the vison of his teammates and serves alongside the youth ministry pastoral staff/leadership at his local church, Calvary Chapel San Diego. Joining the instrumental movement will allow both Gerry and Die Daily to further serve their communities and jointly influence our generation.

There are so many things that come into our lives that shape our opinions of things. Within the last couple of months with the presidential election, there have been plenty of things to do so. Honesty, Racism and Morality have been just a few things to shape our thoughts and opinions on the election as well as the future of the United States of America. But we should never let these things shape our opinion. We should be spending time trying to shape our faith.
When we spend time in the word and prayer, our minds and spirit begin to shape into the form of Christ. By spending time shaping your faith, it strengthens your structure on subjects. This week, I Chican Challenge you to spend more time shaping your faith rather than shaping your fears. Your shaping process forms your reality. By shaping your faith, you turn your opinions into facts. Spread The Soup!

“I’m Magnificent” is the song “Magnificent“, re-inspired by Tamir Rice. He’s Magnificent. Watching my son play, I remembered the feeling of being invincible as a child. What it really felt like to believe you were a superhero and your future was limitless. This new understanding of Magnificence comes in the midst of tragedy. While young black men are being villainized by so many, I wanted to remind us all of what Magnificence looks like on an 8-year-old child. The humanity and beauty of it all. The aggression of the song matches the mindset of a child who sees the world as his oyster. He will not be defeated, in life or in death. Check out the video and let us know what you think.

Before I start this article, I want to say that I’m far from a race baiter. I really have been trying to keep my emotions out of all these recent events including the presidential debates. By throwing around our opinions, we add more gas to the fire. With that said, this weekend I watched “The 13th“. This is a documentary on Netflix which was created by Ava Marie DuVernay. She is a black film director and also directed “Selma“. The film discusses the 13th amendment and how it has impacted mass incarceration within the United States. This documentary was not only eye-opening, but jaw dropping as well. Watching this with my wife of 10 years, who is half Puerto Rican and half white, even she was surprised by what she didn’t know and understand of the struggle of african american males in america. While I don’t want to spoil the stats or viewing experience, I want to really speak on the things that I learned from watching The 13th:
1. You will never be able to impact your FUTURE until you understand your PAST- This isn’t just dealing with blacks and slavery, but it also deals with the invention of the police. This documentary shows how the unity of african americans and the police force won’t happen until african americans recognize their worth and police understand that they were created with the intention to not serve and protect slaves/blacks.
2.There is no hate worse than SELF HATE- With constant reminders from the media (if you don’t believe me look up the doll test), school systems and communities, it’s so easy for african americans to begin to loathe rather than love themselves. When you don’t love yourself, it will be hard to love or even respect others. This vicious cycle is deadly spiritually, mentally and physically.
3. Everyone doesn’t have your best interest in mind- Beware of code words and advantages that people can receive when helping you out of situations. Everyone is not your friend and everyone does not want to see you succeed in life.
It’s my prayer that this post starts conversations and not controversies. We were not created to be separated. Please give this a watch and have a Mirror Moment about what you are doing towards the problem and the solution of racism Spread The Soup!
