Universal Disciple is #Flyah




Lorenzo Hamlin was born on August 24,1979 in Newark,
New Jersey. He was the third child out of the five children, his
mother Elizabeth Hamlin gave birth to. while Growing up in
Newark it wasn't easy for Lorenzo, he faced his own share of
life's trials and tribulations as a kid. Due to the
separation and ongoing problems with his parents, at age 8
Lorenzo and his siblings had to relocate to New York City,
in Far Rockaway,Queens. It was there, he resided with his
aunt, uncle, cousins, and all of his siblings. Trying to
adjust himself to a new environment every day, he made
friends quite easy, but had problems staying out of trouble.
Lorenzo was dealing with alot of personal issues and
emotional anger for years, while living there growing up,
which made his aunt and uncle agree to send him to
Baltimore, Maryland. Making his way to Baltimore, he began
living there in a home with his aunt and three cousins. At
age eleven Lorenzo started writing lyrics, being inspired by
rappers like Special Ed, Krs 1, Chuck D and Will Smith.
Living away from his brothers and sisters for a few years,
Lorenzo began to miss the enjoyment he used to have, being
around them. So at age sixteen, he decided with his aunt, to
arrange for him to move back to New York City, where he can
once again be united with his siblings. Upon his trip back
to New York, he was determined to better himself and start
reaching all his dreams and goals. Living in the basement
with his aunt, brother and cousin, Lorenzo still knew he
would face alot of hard times ahead. His older brother Fred
Hamlin, became a very motivational person in his life, while
he continued to grow up living there. Though Lorenzo was
exposed to drugs, gangs, and violence, he kept seeking for a
way out and to better his surroundings. By age 20, Lorenzo
took writing songs more seriously and wanted to take it to
the next level. He then began writing notebooks filled with
violent lyrics daily, while showcasing his talents in
different areas in Queens on the streets where he lived.
While refining his talent, his life started to take another
direction for the better. Lorenzo wrote a positive song that
touched him deeply on the inside, it was a song he never
thought he had in him. This song was called "Jesus", it
explains how the devil came to this earth and why you should
call on Jesus in times of trouble. Lorenzo then felt it was
time for a change and that writing positive songs would be
his new direction and goal, that was around the time he
changed his name from "The Hood Assassin" to "The Purpose".
Times have changed since then, Lorenzo chose to move again
to Brooklyn, East New York, where his father, Lorenzo Turner
resided. Uniting with his father once again from years of
absence, he began to build a better relationship with him,
while living there. Having his mind made up, he still was on
a positive path and motivated to make great music every day
he could. Being influenced by artists like Nas, Common,
Kanye West, he started focusing on taking christian rap to a
whole new different level. Realizing that this was going to
be his purpose, he then changed his name to the "UniversaL
Disciple" which has become the standard name he uses to this
day. Starting out from MySpace he began exploding across the
internet, popping up on sites like Facebook, Blackplanet,
Reverbnation, Ourstage, etc. Making his presence known
everywhere he can, his journey is still beginning and it's
far from over until he reaches his destination, and that's
to the top of the ladder.

She has been able to make use of her time in isolation: perfecting her EP, creating a YouTube channel and working on a plethora of collaborations with other global artists. The new single, If I’m Honest, is arguably the first of its kind. It has been specifically produced in the key of B. The musical note B is associated with the crown chakra, the 7th chakras in the Buddhist tantric system.
