E.I. the King

E.I. the King had One Goal ‘I Wanted to be the Biggest Drug Dealer Ever’

E.I. the King is one of the newer faces in Christian rap. His testimony is crazy! A rough upbringing led him down a path of destruction that saw him become a young teen drug dealer.

He spent most of his late teens and 20s in prison. He’s out now and serving the Lord, but prior – there was no direction.

“Scarface was my idol,” he said, referring to Tony Montana, infamous coke dealer from the 80s movie ‘Scarface’. “I wanted to be the biggest drug dealer ever.”

This is a pretty frightening goal for anyone, let alone someone who is 15 or 16 years old.

E.I. was the captain of the football team and a star player. He remembers one of his friends watching his transition and her asking him, “What are you doing with your life?”

“This is all I’m going to be,” he said to her. “I’m going to be the biggest drug dealer.”

She told him, “You can be anything you want to be.”

The rapper then admits he was so disillusioned by the streets and the life, that it’s all he saw. He saw what hip-hop culture was pushing and he saw other dealers around him making money. He started making money too. He wanted to get to the next level.

“I was the youngest drug dealer on the block.”

The rest of his testimony is amazing and we’ll break it down further. In the meantime, watch him walk through his journey.
