Today’s DERRICK Interview is with PG-13 born Delontaye Taylor who is a Christian artist that has a heart for God’s people. His desire is 2 win souls for Jesus Christ & allow lives 2 be changed through music!
Born and raised in Norfolk, Virginia, God decided to move him and his family (lovely wife Amanda and 3 handsome boys) to Columbus, Georgia. PG-13 has a passion for the youth and they cling on to him like a magnet. At the age of 23, he started with a group called Collaborated Minds, where they put out 3 mix tapes (Taking Back Our Streets Volume 1, 2, and 3) and a high impacted album in 2010, called “What’s Cooking.” After a successful album and 3 mix tapes in the streets, God spoke to PG-13 and guided him in the direction of Street evangelizing.
In February of 2012, God gave him the vision to record his 1st solo album called “LEGO”(Less Evil Greater Overflow). It was released on August 18, 2012. He released his 1st hit single called “Going Home” featuring Dunbar, which video has shot to the top of the charts on a variety of Social Networking sites in such a short period of time. His 2nd single released was “Christ on Swag.” This is a song that ministers to the youth about sagging their pants, and embarrassing themselves. To hear his music, check him out on Reverbnation, Soundcloud, or Youtube.
