*Arrested Development rapper Speech Thomas is putting his Grammy-winning skills and knowledge of the music industry toward a higher calling as a pastor.
In an interview with Jet, the entertainer, who serves as minister of the Fayetteville, GA-based church The Seed, speaks on his new calling as well as his desire to help teach and develop young entertainers in his recently opened art school, Victory Spot and the importance of positive messages in the music industry
Highlights from the interview are below:
JET: Why did you create Victory Spot?
Speech: My wife and I tour the world a lot. In our life of touring for the last 20 years or so, we have seen a lot of artists who have succumbed to the industry’s ideas for their career and have sabotaged their personal lives, their spiritual lives. They’ve lost their marriages and families in the balance. They’ve lost, sometimes, their sobriety in the balance…so we wanted to create a counter-balance, an art school that trains people on how to navigate the landscape of the music industry.
