Ricardo Equips Artistic Leaders (R.E.A.L.)
MY MISSION – "Equipping Five Fold Lyricists to Impact and Influence the Hip-Hop Ministry, Industry, and Culture!"
MY MANDATE – I exist to gather together creative artists that have been either rejected or have moved away from “the existing music system” to equip them to be artistic leaders in the Five Fold for the purpose of bringing the Ark (Praise, Principles, Pattern, People, Power, Provision, and Presence) of God back to the restored Davidical Tabernacle (the Body of Christ) to Impact the Hip-Hop Cultures of Music, Marketplace, Ministry, and Media imparting faith, hope, and LOVE using our artistic anointing and abilities in the process.
MY TEXT - "And David [the APOSTLE] spake to the chief of the Levites to APPOINTED [Heb: 'confirm, establish, appoint, ORDAIN'] their brethren to be the singers with instruments of music, psalteries and harps and cymbals, sounding, by lifting up the voice with joy. So the Levites APPOINTED ... the singers [minstrels], Heman [the PASTOR], Asaph [the EVANGELIST], and Ethan [also called Jeduthun the PROPHET], were APPOINTED to sound with cymbals of brass; and Chenaniah [the TEACHER], chief of the Levites, was for song ..." (1st Chronicles 15:16-17, 19, 22).
WHY I DO WHAT I DO?
I believe artists need to be more creative, use more of God's wisdom, and use more of the anointing of the Spirit to increase their talents and skills so that Hip-Hop can truly glorify the Father God through Worship!
I believe in the restoration of the Five Fold Ministry Leadership Gifts and that they should also be recognized in the Hip-Hop Ministry and Music Business by identifying, recruiting, training, equipping, empowering, and releasing artists that will influence, impact, and inspire the Music Industry all together.
I believe in helping the rejected and new artists get established by aiding them to find out who they really are in Christ and getting them in front of their GOD-ordained target audience.
I believe that if you make great music with great lyrics and great beats you give great people greater options to choose what to buy rather than buying the one pop (popular, trendy) bandwagon sound that's currently out.

This is a Kingdom of God Inspired Dead 2 Flesh Records/MIC Assembly Network Project
My name is Ricardo Butler (ReAsOn DiSciPLe) of Ricardo Equips Artistic Leaders (R.E.A.L.) and MIC Assembly Davidical Arts Network. I'm taking a quick survey among my online community. I'm not trying to sell you anything or sign you up for anything. I'd like to ask you FIVE questions. There are no right or wrong answers, and it will take…
"Equipping Five Fold Ministers for the Hip Hop Culture!" (Eph. 4:11-16, R.A.P. Version). As a messenger of Christ I am to tell the hip hop culture that God is not mad at them and the reason why is because God has DONE IT ALL. First He changed ME from an enemy into His friend through sending Christ to die in our place. And then He gave me the job of making others His friends also. And I MUST tell them that God IS MAKING EVERYBODY IN THE WHOLE WORLD HIS FRIENDS BY WHAT CHRIST DID, AND THAT GOD ISN'T COUNTING THEIR SINS AGAINST THEM ANY LONGER. And He has given ME the Message which tells people that GOD HAS MADE THEM HIS FRIENDS so that they all will be adopted as children of God.
Thank you for you deposited gift! So grateful to God for you obedience and I pray you continue running hard for the Lord. Be encouraged Pastor and keep your eyes lifted to the hills from whence cometh your help, your help cometh from the Lord. God bless
