Cyrus Brandon Alexander
(pronounced: "King Size")
Born in Media, Pennsylvania, February 27,1979...Holy Hip-Hop/Gospel Rap Artist... Cyrus "KingCYZ" Alexander...has lived in Delaware ever since his birth (which was a "miracle" all by itself). And, after being told by doctors and specialists in fertility that they could not have any children, Cyrus'' parents knew that the medical profession had its limitations and that only GOD could and would perform the miracle that they so earnestly prayed for. They strongly believed that when the season and timing were in-accordance with His Divine and Perfect Will....it would be so. From the womb KingCYZ was labeled as the "Miracle Baby" since even the doctors were stunned at how such a conception could have ever occurred.
From the beginning God had His hand upon Cyrus in the very smile which seemed to illuminate his surroundings and "draw all men unto...." the love and compassion that God had uniquely placed within him. In the early years growing-up his leadership abilities began to manifest as he would organize his peers for games, sports and the enjoyment of just being on this earth.
At the age of five he accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior and Lord and began to evangelize and win souls for the Kingdom of God with a zeal and fire second to none. His boldness in confronting people as to their "soul status" and whether or not they would go to heaven or hell if they died at that very moment...was the onset of that "burning fire" that is so evident as he"spits" the lyrics of his gospel rap/holy hip-hop songs to this very day.
At the age of nine KingCYZ began to "call those things which be not as though they were" and stated that when he grew-up he wanted to be a gospel rap artist, which although humorous and strange to many, offered no hindrance to the vision and goals which continued to intensify and become more-focused than ever before. He began to record his own background tracks...as crude as they may have been...by "beat-boxing" with his mouth and using one tape-recorder to tape onto the preceding track of the other recorder...until all of the sounds were intact and then added the instrumental music from another source (which occasionally was provided by his mother who played the keyboard/piano at their church) for the accompaniment that was needed for him to effectively deliver his rap songs.
As Cyrus entered his teen years he began to receive invitations to minister his gospel raps at youth conferences, crusades, street ministries, schools & colleges, etc. and God began to strategically place people into his life who could impart their expertise, wisdom and guidance in such a way that he would mature in the Word of God and the ministry that he had been called to.
The very name...CYRUS...was handed-down through several generations of his family and had its origin in the Bible...the Book of Ezra, Chapter One and Verse One where God commissions King Cyrus of Persia who is NOT a Christian to lead the people back to Christianity and fellowship with God.
Part of the testimony of KingCYZ is that the first CYRUS was used by GOD to restore Christianity and deliver the GOOD NEWS to mankind in spite of him NOT being a Christian. But he comes as the second CYRUS....doubly-packed, armed & equipped as a born-again, spirit-filled Christian sent forth to, once again, bring the GOOD NEWS to mankind...ministering life, hope, and snatching them from the very clutches of the enemy.
During the past few years KingCYZ has ministered at events that featured such artists as "112" of Bad Boy Entertainment...Maurette Brown Clarke of Verity Records...Jacquie "Lady J" Gines of Rising Son Media...Musician, Artist and Radio Host Jeff Majors...Vocal Group "Trin-i-tee 5:7"...Michelle Williams (Destiny''s Child)...and Comedian Jonathan Slocum. He has opened-up for
Platinum Recording Artist "Tonex" (toe-nay) and is featured on the song "Happy" with Ann Nesby (former lead singer with the Sounds of Blackness) on her latest album "Make Me Better".
One of his recent accomplishments is a featured spot on the song "Champions" on the newly-released album "I''m Still Here" by veteran vocalist Melba Moore.
In 2001, King Cyz''s debut album, "Life or Death", got right to the point. He delivered a bold message urging his listeners to choose LIFE in CHRIST, or experience eternal damnation. The album was designed to captivate every listener with lyrics that cut like a two-edged sword and a message that would reach the masses. Let "...he that hath ears to hear..." receive what the Spirit of the Lord is delivering straight to your ears and into your heart through this powerful gospel rap ministry !!
Now, in 2005, "Wake-Up!", the smash follow-up to Life or Death, promises not to disappoint. Packed with bangin'' beats, Word based rhymes, and classic collaborations, this album raises the ministry bar to a whole new level. For those feigning for Holy Hip Hop at its finest, this 15 track gem couldn''t have come at a better time. 2001 provided a choice, Life or Death. 2005 will prove whether or not you learned anything in 4 years.... Wake UP!
