"New Name; Same Mission." This track explains the journey Justin took earning his Bachelor's and Master's Degree and changing his name from Justin-Credible to Justin Martyr. During this time he moved from his hometown of Miami, FL to Atlanta, Ga and eventually to Chicago, IL to attend the historic Moody Bible Institute and Moody Theological Seminary. This song is rapped over Tye Tribbet's "One Nation" Instrumental from his album entitled "Life." Tye Tribbett remains one of Justin's biggest musical influences. The single cover art for “NNSM” was designed by Dr. James E. Francis @drjamesjjfrancis Justin’s older brother.


“New Name but the Same Mission!”

Verse: Yo I know I’m not fit or deserving to do this/
but I’m foolish if I don’t spit to give you Godly influence/
rhymes I utter cause brain contusions/praying these words will bring you the same conclusion/
The Bible’s infallible, that’s the main influence/ you deny Christ you’re doing the same as Judas/ lame and stupid, if you keep rejecting God, ain’t in Hell but it seems like you’re aiming to it/
I’m an “Ambassador” check my “Thesis”/
without Jesus not even “Reese’s” can know what Peace is (pieces)/
sin increases, sin diseases, only cure is to obey what the Master teaches/
“Stop the Funeral,” false doctrine we “Chop Chop”/
teaching “Christology,” he’s getting the top spot/
spreading that “Holy Culture,” we will not stop/ fellas you are not thugs, ladies you are not thots/
I spit FLAME’s with DA TRUTH spark a CROSS MOVEMENT/
I’m a PHANATIK for Yeshua we are not losing/
Now I see clear, “Higher Definition”/ perfection, God’s the entire definition/
No matter the rap forum I’ma rap for em/ whether it’s in English or I rap foreign/
Greek, Hebrew, Aramaic I can rap foreign/ or Jamaican Patois ain’t no raps boring/
No matter the plat-for-em (platform), I’ma rap for em/ whether an arena or a packed dorm/
can’t hesitate I bring the facts for em/ not Jermaine Cole, but you can clap for em/
A New Name but the same mission/ new name but the same vision/
my old name ain’t mean a thang/ I picked it when my theology was lame/
stage name was Justin-Credible, but that was just a wordplay/
don’t wanna bring attention to myself, gotta focus on what the word say/
and you know I gotta practice what I preach, cause the world need’s forgiveness in the worst way/
and the only solution is the God Man, who died then he rose on the third day/
Now I go by Justin Martyr/ got my Bachelor’s then my Master’s/
the goal was to become a Young Scholar/ a Musician, a Rapper and a Pastor/
the word Martyr comes from μάρτυς/ means a witness in The Greek/
Ἰησοῦς Χριστός ὁ κύριος [Jesus Christ The Lord], need his grace cause I been weak/
A Martyr is also one who dies for the faith, and that’s the name of a great Church Father/
and if you ain’t willing to die for the cause of Christ, then tell me why even bother/
New Name but The Same Mission
