Minister G – Rules of Engagement [Audio]

Tweet

Montreal, QC –Minister G just dropped a new track on us entitled “Rules of Engagement.” It’s one of those great anecdotal stories about the consequences of living a life of crime. But Minister G is so poignant with his rhymes. “Rules of Engagement” conveys a hopeful message of life re-evaluation. I’m so tempted to make a “Started From The Bottom” Drizzy reference, here. But I will refrain. Check it below.

This track hits close to home for Minister G. In fact, here’s the Cliff Notes version of  the Minister’s past: Minister G used to roll under the alias GunDei (like Gandhi, but with a “gun”) and he used to be bad news bears. He was a Miami gang banger who saw crime as the only means of achieving some sort of good life. But in 1992, Minister G moved to Montreal and signed to the Zoobone Records label.

After touring and cranking out jams for nearly a decade, the Minister hit a rock bottom, of sorts. He had change of heart that led him away from his self-destructive mindset, and back into hip-hop. So the moral of the story: moving to Canada evokes spiritual awakenings that lead to musical mastery. Also, Minister G is gearing up to launch his Church Fo’ Da Thugz project in summer 2014. And part of me hopes that the project ends up being a bit like that “R.A.P. Music” joint by Killer Mike. I mean, dude’s already preaching to the congregation. So it should be a gooder.
