"They can't take you to church like I can," Sir the Baptist sang during his performance on Late Night with Seth Meyers. The son of a Baptist preacher, young Sir's music is not necessarily religious, but it does give the listener a sense of faith and change.
The socially conscious lyricist is using his growing platform for good, creating hip-hop music that touches on hot, sometimes controversial, topics so many others shy away from. Sir covers issues like domestic violence, Chicago violence and black economics. When one of your fans is Jay-Z, you know you're doing something right.
Catch Sir the Baptist at 2:30 pm on the Pepsi Stage on Sunday, Oct. 30.

Who has their debut album co-produced by legendary Tom Petty? The Shelters, a Los Angeles-based rock group, that's who.
