Greensboro, NC - Renew Your Mind Music CEO Sam Purpose, formally Sam P., returns with the 2021 single “Never Shaken”.
The 2021 record, Never Shaken, marks the second release of the year for the
North Carolina emcee.
While many artists are consumed with streaming numbers and playlist
placements, Sam continues to remain focused on the path that God has placed him on.
“This song is about pursuing your God given purpose in the midst of life’s obstacles,” explains
“The Bible says in 2 Timothy 1:7, For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power
and of love and of a sound mind.
It is not as if, as believers, our trials disappear. Yet, when we
face our fears with a God-centered focus, we can overcome anything. We now have become
empowered through the Holy Spirit to succeed.”
Never Shaken features production from Christian Hip Hop trailblazer Derek Minor (Reflection
Music Group) along with engineering by Tip Beats.

About Sam P.
Growing up in the small town of Middlesex ,North Carolina Samuel Arthur Pierce, known as Sam P, first came in touch with hip hop music through his childhood friend. Initially getting his influences from Notorious B.I.G, Nas, Big L, EPMD, Wu-Tang Clan, and Mobb Deep.
After dedicating his life to Christ in 2007 and committing to following Jesus, eight years later he was inspired to write rap music again with a different focus, giving honor to Christ. This time instead of making it a hobby, he decided to take it seriously now getting his influences from Andy Mineo, Lecrae, Trip Lee, and Bizzle.
After talking with his wife and friend in 2015, Sam was encouraged to start his own music production business and independent label Renew Your Mind Music, formerly known as Renew Your Mind Records.
His purpose is to use hip hop music to encourage and inspire others through the gospel of Jesus Christ as well as a tool for evangelism to build meaningful relationships with other people young and old.
In the same year he started the label, Sam created his debut album ‘Renewed’ right in his home. After much studying and reading on mixing, mastering and making beats he co-produced and created the cover art to his seconnd album “Be Still” which was the start of his first hit single “Giantkiller” that was featured on the Trackstarz Line 4 Line podcast and YouTube channel.
Sam has also been featured in MusicLov3rz Magazine, Shine Your Light Radio with Nancy Mattox, Rep Your City Praise Radio, and was nominated for male Gospel Hip Hop artist of the Year in 2018.
As an independent artist on his own label, father, and husband, Sam’s main focus is to please God and be the best representation of Him to his wife, kids, family, friends, and enemies.
