New York rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine attended a peace conference in a Brooklyn church earlier this week and gave his heart to Jesus Christ.

Known for his vulgar lyrics and his incessant bullying ways, 22-year-old rapper, born Daniel Hernandez, has made a name for himself in the mainstream music industry. From the hood in Bushwick, Brooklyn, Tekashi was forced to grow up quickly after his father was brutally murdered. He initially began drug slinging with his older brother and then ventured into music.

Idolized as an icon by Gen Zers, Tekashi is seemingly trying to change his unruly ways. Bishop Lamor M. Whitehead invited the young rapper as a guest of honor at “The Peace Conference: ‘Stop The Violence’” on Tuesday that was held at the Leaders of Tomorrow Brooklyn Ministry. There, he was presented with awards from the New York state Senate and state Assembly for his “outstanding” community service.
