Father/Husband/Artist/Child of the Most High


I’m Ian Barnett also known as “ASAP Preach”.  I was born on April 15, 1988, throughout my childhood I experience my parents having a lot of parties. There was a lot of drugs and drinking around, and I was exposed to a lot of things that I shouldn’t have been exposed to. At the age of 11 years old, I was sexually abused. Leaving me with a perverted view on life.  All I could think about was lust and fulfilling fleshly desires. I felt like I couldn’t tell nobody what I was going through, so I just bottled it in. Trying to numb the pain of feeling rejected and misunderstood I fell into drugs and started hanging out with gangs.

In 2007, I was at rockbottom, sleeping on the floor of random peoples houses. I ended up getting arrested at one of the hardest times of my life! To the point, I told the officer to “shoot me in the head I didn’t wanna live anymore”.  They arrested me and took me back into my cell. There was a Bible in there and when I opened up this Bible, it started speaking to me as if there was somebody else in the room. I’ve began to have this peace inside of a place where people don’t find peace. I always believe that Jesus died 2000 years ago on a cross for my sins, but I never knew you could have a relationship with him. But I felt the Holy Spirit in cell and I called upon God and I said “Lord, if you’re real, get me out of this place and I’ll serve you for the rest of my life”. I really didn’t know what it would look like to follow God since all I knew was the streets. But overtime, the Holy Spirit would convict me and showed me things about me that I never knew, but also things that he didn’t want me doing anymore. That is when I started to let things go and trust the blood of Jesus over my life.

Since then I have been traveling the world telling people about this hope that I have in Jesus! Spreading the gospel, and letting people know that Jesus can set them free from addiction, and even though they are broken, Jesus can be a loving father to them, because that’s what he is for me! He also told me that if I would do things that bring him honor and glory, he would provide for my families needs forever! Since being saved I’ve been doing full-time ministry and Christian hip-hop music! I was somebody that the world counted out, but God counted me in, and made me part of his kingdom! The best thing that ever happened to me.
