What is the origin of the names Mynista and Docta Wuzdead?
well, when I was a secular rapper, my name was Synista, when I gave my life
to God, I changed that “S” into an “M”. My alias “Docta Wuzdead” is two
parts of who I am, and my mission in music. Docta comes from being about
God’s business of healing the sick….sick in soul, spirit, and body. Wuzdead
comes from me being spiritually dead before Christ….”I was dead, now I’m
alive in Jesus.”
How did you begin rapping and who was your inspiration?
I began rapping by making me a little home made studio in my room in my
early teens…I would rig it up, and rap on other peoples beats. I use to
right poetry before that, so I just spit my poetry to the beats. I started
rappin’ pro in 96’, got my first record deal in 97’. I heard other kats doin
it…and when Kriss- Kross blew up…I knew I had to krank up!
You have a great testimonial; can you briefly fill me in?
Yeah, well the group I was in in Tampa was actually involved in the occult,
and I didn’t know it. I had heard Tupac, Snoop Dogg, and DMX rap about
selling their souls to the Devil, but I was lost at the time so it was just
words to me….until I got approached by the forces of darkness for myself,
asking me to willingly sell my soul (mind, will, and emotions and “My
Talent”) in exchange for fortune and fame. To make it short and simple, I
said “no” to the devil and his offer, and said “yes” to God and His plan for
my life, and “yes” to His purpose for my life in this world.
How did Warria Records form?
When I got saved, I wasn’t even thinking about music…I was ready to leave it
all….but God told me to change my name to “Mynista”, and to start “Warria
records”….so I did it.
What will listeners hear on your next release, Da Ghetto
Man!!!....I’m really excited about this album; I think it’s the rawest
Mynista project ever made. All of the production is top notch and
“mainstream”, so it’s sure to catch the ears of anybody from anywhere… In
the Church, and in the streets. Every song is anointed, and when I say
anointed, I mean smeared and painted with God’s presence and voice….These
songs are alive because Jesus is alive, and I die to self to let Him be the
rapper….not me. That’s what makes my music special…I aint trying to do
nothing but let God have His way…plus it’s bangin! The title “Da Ghetto
Shepherd” simply means “World leader” to me….compared to heaven, this
world….this entire earth, is a “Ghetto”….that’s what the Word means when it
says that “Jesus became poor, so that we could become rich.” Also, My style
is Ghetto (street), and I’m from the ghetto. but my mind and my heart are no
longer “Ghetto”. “Follow me as I follow Christ.”
What do you feel is your favorite track off the album?
It’s hard for me to say….it just depends on the mood I’m in. Right now my
favorite is “Don’t Talk” featuring Dionne. It’s a real song about walking
the talk, and not just running our mouths about Jesus….even the Devil knows
that “Jesus Walks”…but the Devil aint “walking with Jesus.”
What inspires your songs?
Whatever I feel that God is saying to me about anything….whatever burns
inside of my soul is what gets put down…I’m just His echo.

Tell me about “Bloody Streets” by your alias Docta Wuzdead,
what made you decide to make the whole album free to the public via your
Well actually, Bloody Streets is really a project that we press up retail
ready, and we make it available for FREE to the streets. Since the web is a
great resource for free music, we made it available for download as well.
The purpose for Bloody Streets is to get the message, and the music into the
ears and hearts of those that really can’t even afford to buy our CD’s….and
to get it to those that don’t even buy CD’s….this is our “outreach”
project”, we are seeing a lot of people give their hearts to God because of
this album, We have over 2000 units of volume one in the streets right now
from us alone, not to mention all of our partners that “burn” copies and
give them out. Docta Wuzdead “Bloody Streets 2 : The Devil’s Adversary”
