R2R315.com | Rags2Riches was founded in 2010 by Damien Priest - primarily as a devotion to the Rosary. We pray them, why not make them? So that's what we did.
We love Jesus and Hip Hop. Why not make music? So that's what we did.
Why wear someone else's brand when you could let the world know your Catholic Faith is the only brand needed? So we designed clothing.
Some might call us a "ministry" or an "apostolate" - our response... "We are Catholic." Everything we do is about learning, loving and living our faith daily.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT:
Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and he will establish your plans.
“I started making Rosaries first (kinda for self-penance), but over time I found myself looking for more ways to express my faith in a world I really believe needs to hear the Good News, which is Jesus.
To me, making music (hip-hop), videos, etc., that incorporated where my life and faith intersect, made sense... it’s what I grew up on, good or bad, it was a part of my life and now so was Jesus.
Over the last 8 years, through highs and lows, I’ve done everything I could to build something that might glorify God in ways that other people could relate to. At the end of the day, all I can do is try to live it as best as I can, and in doing so hopefully it encourages other people to “take up your cross and follow Jesus.”” (Luke 9:23)
