Throughout the years, K.E.R.M. gained a tremendous desire to be used by God to make a real difference. The Lord began to speak to K.E.R.M. through several prophetic words that he was about to launch out into a whole new arena of ministry and that he needed to be prepared. With a vision to use rap music as a tool, K.E.R.M. started writing lyrics for what would eventually become the album 'By Design'. After a lot of prayer, sacrifice and perseverance, the end result is an album that truly personifies what it means to testify through the form of hip-hop. While songs like 'Chump Change' and 'Back N The Dayz' tell of K.E.R.M.'s past life in the City of Angels, it is the songs 'By Design', 'Without God' and 'I Live For You' that tells a story of redemption. This is why this album has been so well received, because this album not only allows you to share in K.E.R.M.'s testimony, but it happens in such a way that many of the songs become your own... By Design.
