Hip hop-influenced Christian music artist Lawrence Jamal Frierson (professionally known as Lawrence Jamal) has plead guilty to the charge of Continuous Violence Against the Family which is a 3rd degree felony. He was sentenced to 4 years in jail plus 160 hours of Community Service. 

Jamal is best known for his hit single "Pick Me Up." The single, which Jamal wrote, embodies the musician's desires as he pursues his musical career. Admitting to a time in which he battled depression, suicide, anger, regret, temptation, loneliness and more, he said it was his experiences in this darkness that led him to rededicate his life as a believer and be transparent about where he has been.

"'Pick Me Up' is a vulnerable soul cry," Lawrence Jamal says, adding that verse by verse, he shares his questions and fears.

"As I grow in my walk with Christ I've come to learn and rely on the power of vulnerability and community," says Lawrence Jamal. "And if I ever plan to incite change for the Kingdom, I need to be transparent with those I'm partnering with as I open my heart in the hopes of new life, love, and connections as we continue to strive to pursue purpose in our time."

The song, written by Lawrence Jamal and mixed by Kendric Conley at Sauced Up Entertainment, is being released on the Everything Freedom label.

"God has only used the difficulties of my past, even of the recent past, to continue to shine His light through my music," says Lawrence Jamal.
