Positive Music Takeover Tour
Lumont Deshield is the Founder and CEO of JesusGang. JesusGang started as a unique t-shirt clothing line and now includes: hoodies, hats, and shoes. It quickly expanded into Christian rap music as a way to reach youth and young adults with positive music and as an alternative to negative rap music. Lumont writes, performs, records, and produces music and videos. He is defining a new genre of music that has been called gospel trap music.
JesusGang has performed at more than 80 churches, community events, radio stations, clubs and shows in the DMV, Atlanta, Miami, and Tampa. The message is always positive, motivational, and inspirational.
