This Sunday, July 8, former convict-turned-Christian-rapper SaulPaul will perform at the 103rd NAACP convention held in his hometown of Houston.
SaulPaulâ€™s ability to make impromptu hip hop freestyles using words thrown at him by the audience have brought him notoriety and opportunities to take the stage at events like SXSW and Super Bowl XLVI.
But what is particularly special about SaulPaul is his story of reformation. Having been both a product of the Texas State Penitentiary and The University of Texas, he has gained a thorough understanding of what can be lost through incarceration and gained through positive life choices.
In 1996, after a short stint at college, SaulPaul was convicted of four felonies and sentenced to 10 years. However, after only two years of his sentence, he was released and paroled. He worked hard to get re-enrolled into The University of Texas where he was able to graduate with a degree in Radio-Television-Film.
SaulPaul has just returned from a 21 city tour where he touched thousands with his music and his message. His performance at the NAACP convention is just another chance for him to share his inspirational story. He will also be debuting a new song from his forthcoming album Dream in 3-D.
