Christian rap artist, “AC” Antoine Cabarrus, was born and spent his childhood in Orange, New Jersey. He developed a passion for sports and music early in his life, but didn’t flourish until his family moved to Huntington, West Virginia. While living in Huntington, AC received a full ride scholarship to play football at Marshall University, and earned two bachelors and a master’s degree in the process. Antoine joined the United States Army shortly after graduating college in 2009 and rose to the rank of Captain during his military career.
As an independent artist, AC became established as a well-known artist in his community and abroad on many mission trips. He has traveled to Taiwan three times, and last summer was his first trip to Africa. While visiting Africa he volunteered in the medical clinic during the day and performed for thousands who attended the conference in the evening. He has plans to return to Taiwan this summer where he will also share his music and give back any way he can.
After releasing his last album, 4:13 All Through Christ, AC received national recognition for his hard work. He received six nominations and won 2018 Alternative Christian Rap CD of the Year. His music video to the song “Fallin’” featuring musical artist Melody Joy, became a fan favorite as it quickly reached over 1.2 million views. AC’s diverse writing style has allowed him to crossover into many genres and collaborate with several artists outside of the hip-hop realm. His recent release “The Storm” is a collaboration featuring artist Kelsie May, who was a fan favorite on season 8 of The Voice.
In 2021 AC released his album, Strength in the Dark, which gives a personal account of his battle and victory over depression after enduring 3 back surgeries. AC has been able to use the experiences that he sings about on this album as a platform for mental health everywhere he goes.
AC released his 6th album “Through It All” in July that features several motivational, inspirational, and relatable songs about current issues that we face everyday. The message throughout this album focuses on being able to go through adversity and remain positive while facing multiple hardships in life.
AC is now shifting his focus on releasing another new album in the summer of 2023 titled “Let’s Gooo!!”.. He’s already released two singles from this album, 2 music videos, and is currently working on releasing another music video very soon. This project is going to be full of energy and will be his best work yet.
I’m on the verge of releasing my 7th album as an independent artist. This whole process hasn’t been easy, and things have moved very slow at times. I’m forever grateful to those of you who’ve stuck by my side through the good times and the bad. God bless you all!
I released my first professionally recorded album in 2013.
I recorded 2 Real the following year with my best friend Deano Mission.
In 2015, I dropped my first EP “Not of This World”.
I dropped “Revelation” towards the end of 2016, and immediately started working on what would be my most successful project thus far.
Strength in the Dark released on Feb 19th and is available for download on all streaming platforms!
