Sir William James the Baptist is a second generation Chaplain of the modern believer’s culture. Sir is on a fast track to becoming one of the biggest voices to emerge from the Baptist/Christian culture. His mixtape Saint or Sinner (2017) amassed more than 15 million streams worldwide and Sir performed on tours all across the globe, opening for Beyonce, Lauryn Hill, Alicia Keys, Mary J Blige, Nelly and hitting the stage at Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Made in America and countless numbers of other shows and festivals. This internationally known Artist and Spiritualist has been acknowledged by Forbes, Jay Z, Billboard, CNN, Late Night with Seth Meyers, BBC Radio 1, NPR, The Grammys and many more for his trailblazing cause. After a recent prayer circle at Facebook for Mark Zuckerberg, CNN stated that Sir is leading a “believers renaissance” through a “balance between religion and life.” Without a debut album, his works have charted #1 on Spotify’s Viral 50 (“Raise Hell”), #14 in the US for Hip Hop (Saint or Sinner), #13 on the Billboard Gospel Airplay charts (“Heaven”), #1 in the Bahamas, #5 album in Finland, received a BET nomination against his inspiration Jay Z and has been featured in a national Lexus TV commercial campaign (“Movin”), along with various TV shows and movies. Sir has also partnered with charitable organizations around the world to push forward this mission, including an honor by the Mayor of Chicago for his contribution to HIV/AIDS awareness in honor of his only full blood sibling HRH London Benton. His urban hymns shows his craftsmanship, but his insight proves his vision at a much needed time in the progression of religion. Sir will be on the McDonald’s Inspiration Tour throughout 2019 and his debut album will be released later this year.
“MOST RAPPERS TALK ABOUT MONEY; I TALK ABOUT CURRENCY. THEY TALK ABOUT JUSTICE; I TALK ABOUT REVOLUTION. THESE RAPPERS AREN’T ACTIVIST, THEY’RE ACTING... AND THIS ISN'T BEEF... THIS IS ACCOUNTABILITY.”

the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.
Unveiling the Values of Vision
What does it mean to be a visionary? How do I shape my philosophy in vision?
What does the value of vision look like? This book wears these answers on its sleeve.
- The Betterment of Global Issues
During a sabbatical from conceptual systems in pursuit of truth and wisdom, the secluded Baptist challenged himself to find the value of vision. This book is merely documented organically as Sir’s open letter to the global community of visionaries. After a year reconstructing and establishing the values of vision, he persuasively argues the notion that transcendent truth is the credibility gap between the vanguard visionary and the emerging, digital, twenty-first-century visionary. This book has his practical and profound radically new approach to universal vision concerning epistemology, business ethics, and global issues.
BECOME AN URBAN MONK
What is a Monk?
An Urban Monk is a culturally enlightened person; an almost inhuman, self educated, social fighter of worldly problems without weapons or armor. The Urban Monk masters positive thinking, and controls the level at which he or she vibrates. An Urban Monk’s thirst for unity lays the foundation for the mission and the lifestyle. Urban Monks have a specific mission and that mission aligns with his or her passions. It is nourished by kindness; it also does not go without support.
