Meta-4 or Oshal, is an Alternative Christian Artist. He was raised in the church,(meaning he had family that took him every Sunday). One day he raised his hand to accept the Lord at about the age of 8.
Meta-4 eventually grew older, and later went to college. At college he partied and tried to be "Mr. Luva Man" Shaba, (at least in his own mind). Meta-4 did some other things, but thank GOD, the Lord never let him get to far into the street scene. Thank GOD! In 2002 is when he rededicated his life to the Lord.
Meta-4's goals: to have people be able to visualize his words when he performs spoken word, raps, or worships. To take images and ideas that people are familiar with, and use them to glorify GOD. To draw them into worship and the Presence of GOD. Meta-4 would like to do more songs, more collaborations, including videos. Meta-4's style is different, but all to the Glory of GOD. He would also love to collaborate with other alternative Christian artists. He is a bit out of the box, a little eclectic, and sort of underground. Meta-4 may do spoken Word., rap, or worship. That being said, "On any given Sunday" he can bring it to the streets or to the pulpit!
