Marcus Montana, known as TRU-SERVA to his music audience, is a passionate man whose mission is to help others find true life.

His Testimony

Growing up in a single parent home in Lacombe, LA outside of New Orleans, he was forced to raise himself while his Mom worked two jobs to provide for the family. Trapped in a materialistic society, he chased after self-satisfaction, experiencing a void of true love. He was left broken after a long pursuit to fill that void.

At age 16, while TRU was at the end of his rope, drained from the emptiness of unfulfilling pleasure, he came face-to-face with Christ. He chose to take a spiritual step and committed to a personal relationship with Jesus.

TRU felt a calling to use his talent of hip-hop to help change lives. From a young age, hip-hop influenced his style, language and attitude and it felt natural to use this genre of music and way of life to help reach people. Through his rap lyrics, he portrays a powerful message of the cross and of a positive change. He sees himself as an overcomer and example of hope to many, where he stepped above the trap of being an African American male dead or in jail by age 25.

A strong vision for connection is what this musician strives to accomplish each and everyday. TRU aims to make a connection between the streets and the church, saying “The walls of the church need to fall down and people need to get out of their seats and go out.” He also wants to see the connection between generations, where he can speak to both kids and adults.

“From a single parent home, I was supposed to lose. As a young black male, I was supposed to lose. The mere fact that I’m from Lacombe, I was supposed to lose. But even though I was supposed to lose, it’s the path that I choose.” –N Dat Bayou
