Beridox was born in Philadelphia, PA. He grew up in the Church and accepted the Lord Jesus Christ at a very young age. While maturing in life, he was growing up in the era of Hip-Hop in its beginning stages and soon realized that he too had a gift to write and recite rhymes. Unfortunately, in the very beginning of recognizing his gift, he didn't do it for the Lord; he did it for the world. At that time, he admired great emcees of that time like Big Daddy Kane, Rakim, LL Cool J, EST and others and desired to have a similar style to battle other emcees and win, yet with wordplay that amazed the mind. While attending High School in Southwest Philadelphia, he attempted to be the best battle emcee in his school. After graduating from High School, he soon returned back to His first love, God. During that time of his life, he cultivated his relationship with Jesus and walked many years in God's word, studying and finding out more truth from the Holy Scriptures in order to grow spiritually. At that time in his life, he really had no clue that Holy Hip Hop existed until God showed him other local ministries doing it for His glory like Omega-Trig, Cross Movement, and others. Shortly there after, the Lord ushered Beridox back to the pen and pad to write rhymes, but not with a walk or talk that was catered to the flesh, but of the Spirit. God also blessed Beridox with the gift to produce beats for his rhymes and enabled him to start Christ Revolution Music Productions in 2000. Since then, Beridox has released 2 full length CDs. The debut CD was entitled "Manuscripts Of A Servant" that unleashed on the world back on Tuesday, January 24th, 2006. The Sophomore CD "N.O.L." which stands for Newness Of Life, has recently released Tuesday, November 13th, 2007.
The name B.E.R.I.D.O.X. is an acronym that states the true purpose of this Christian minister/artist/producer. Bryant Educates Radically Informing Disciples Of the (X - which means unknown, but interpreted here as the Truth), which is in Jesus Christ. Since Beridox has come into the knowledge of the truth (Jesus Christ), he now attempts to speak with authority the truth of the word of God. The truth is no longer unknown to those that are saved. He attempts to diligently bring across the message of truth to those who are lost and spiritual edification to those who are saved.
Outside of the music ministry, Beridox lives a normal life like most. He has been married to his wonderful wife Kisha for 11 years and has 2 children, Erin & Miles. He serves as an Associate Pastor at Christ Community Church of Philadelphia where he attempts to be an aid in strengthening the Body of Christ at his local fellowship and abroad. As well as work full-time in the Administration Department at his current job.
