Interview with Rene “Level” Martinez @level305

Dear Readers:

I’ve done a lot of interviews over the years and this one I am very excited about sharing. When I first watched the documentary trailer that I’ve posted here for you to view, I can honestly tell you it gave me a reminder of just how awesome God is. I hope that it blesses you, and for those of you that are interested in contacting Mr. Martinez for speaking engagements, log on to his website http://www.thewarriorlevel.com and fill out the contact information section.

QTP: For those who may not be familiar, can you introduce yourself to our readers?
Level: My name is Rene Level Martinez and I’m a minister of the gospel, I wanna share a brief testimony on my life, as a kid i didn’t have a father figure in my life, my mom was on the streets addicted to drugs, she was an alcoholic. She was part of a religion known as santeria which is a very dark world, I remember being 5 years old and them sacrificing a goat and pouring the blood over my head, I started to see demons not long after that, I saw them my whole life and was controlled by them. I got into the streets as early as 9 and started breaking into houses and cars, I walked into a gang at the age of 13, One night we got into a high speed chase in a stolen car and we crashed into a man that died on impact, i was in a comma for 3 weeks with a 5% chance of survival, when I woke up I had broken bones all over my body and I was facing manslaughter charges, I was 14 at the time.  When I recovered I didn’t learn my lesson, I got right back into the streets and started gang banging really hard, ended up homeless with my mom and had to rob to eat, one night I found my mom half dead overdosed on pills with her wrist slit, when she got better she ended up meeting Jesus Christ and left to a retreat for a weekend, in that one weekend my mom stopped all drugs and alcohol! instantly!! but for me it was to late all I ever knew was the streets, ended up in Juvenile Hall at the age of 16 for attempted murder, got sentenced to a juvenile facility. I became the leader of the Loc’ed Syndicate Gang at 17 years old in Miami Dade County, I was active for over two decades and had a road to Demascus experience one night, Jesus Christ spoke to me!!! Like when Saul became Paul! not long after that I met a man of God that gave me the true word and told me to get baptized in the NAME of JESUS CHRIST according to Acts 2:38, and let me tell you, a shift in my life happened that day! I never been the same, i got this fire in me! and now I go from hood to hood, project to prison preaching repentance and remission of sins in the might name of JESUS CHRIST!!!
QTP: After watching your documentary “The Warrior Level” I was truly encouraged. I commend you for taking such a bold stand for Christ and having the courage to start a new life. How did the documentary get started?
Level: When i was a kid we came up on a camera and I started recording stuff in the hood, a lot of gang footage, and underground fight footage from when I was bare-knuckle fighting for money. One day I gotta vision of turning my life story into a documentary…
QTP: Congratulations on being awarded two awards at the International Christian Film Festival for 2018. That must have been a very humbling and proud moment for you.
Level: Yes it was a blessing!, I was competing against some big names, I won most inspirational documentary and best documentary audience choice. All praise and glory to Jesus Christ
QTP: Where can folks see your documentary? Is it available on DVD?
Level: I’m currently shopping it to a few networks, all info is on my website THEWARRIORLEVEL.COM

#SoGoneChallenge

ElwoodMusic

So.. apparently the new “challenge” is doing a remix of Monica’s track “So Gone” from her “After the Storm” album (which by the way was originally released on my Birthday June 17th in 2003). Absolutely one of those timeless albums that if you played it today 13 years later it would still be good.

So what I’m sharing is in my opinion one of the best (if not thee best) #SoGoneChallenge attempts I’ve seen by Elwood (Elwood Music).

Can we Auto-Correct Humanity? by @princeea

SONY DSC

Meet Prince EA. I came across his You Tube video “Can we Auto-Correct Humanity?”  this morning and was so impressed I had to blog it Fam.

There is a distinct difference between rap and hip-hop. The category hip-hop indicates that there is knowledge within the content of the music. Personally, the message in the music is right on time. Hopefully, more people will listen and start to control their technology instead of their technology controlling them.

#READ Ask #Siri What is Sept 3, 2014?

If you’ve been keeping up with the blog you know that since the iPhone (IOS7 Update) names “the birth of the Prophet” when asked “what is January 13, 2014 (which of course why I’m releasing ”
Standing Ovation” on that day) and Siri also says that “the gates of Hades (which is another word for hell if you don’t know) will open when asked “what is July 27, 2014” (which of course is why GGO/ BKZU Sneak Vandel is releasing his “Museum of HipHop” project on that day).

Siri also references another date that we know of. If you ask Siri “what is September 3, 2014” the response is “closing the gates of Hades”, sooooooooooooo what better way to slam the door shut then with yours truly? I will be formally releasing my solo debut MXTP “Rise of the Phoenix” on September 3, 2014.

There’s a LOT of reasons this could be happening. Let’s take a reader’s vote! (Why not? We haven’t done a poll in awhile). Why do YOU think Siri is answering those questions that way?
