Long before Sevin signed with Bizzle’s record label God Over Money, Sevin made a “covenant agreement” with Bizzle to mentor him.

“When I met [Bizzle] and I hear him talking and I can see his heart, it’s like, ‘Yo, this brother is going to need a brother because I already see how they finna do this dude,’ like how they do a lot of us,” Sevin told Rapzilla at SXSW 2016. “They’ll throw a platform under us ‘cause we got talent, and then as soon as we make a mistake, and we will, then now we ain’t Christians, and now we ain’t this. It’s basically you raising a child just to abuse it type of thing half the time.

“I saw that kind of in his future, and so I made a covenant agreement with him that as long as he was willing to walk with Christ, and as long as his ambition was the Gospel and not himself and not his career and different things like that, I was going to walk with him till it’s over.”

God Over Money announced that it had signed Sevin on New Year’s Day. But his signing had less to do with the GOM label and more to do with the GOM movement.

“Mine and Bizzle’s relationship ain’t got nothing to do with music,” Sevin said. “We could stop rapping today. That’s gon’ be my brother. I’d die for him right now. I feel like the blessing now of being able to be with God Over Money is that I get to serve my brother. That’s how I’m looking at this whole process. I’ve been serving them before from behind the scenes, and I know now that I’m able to bring something over to this camp that they’ve been needing — I think kind of just to complete the whole circle as far as where God’s got them at right now.

“When you sign Sevin, you sign HogMob. When you sign HogMob, you sign a ministry.”
