MYNISTA a.k.a. Docta Wuzdead used to be known only as "Synista". Back then, he lived the street life that most secular rappers glorify today, including drugs, women, and inevitable run-ins with the law. MYNISTA began rapping professionally in 1996 as the lead rapper of a Tampa Bay clique that was quickly gaining popularity. During this time, he sold marijuana in order to finance the party life that came along with the "hood fame" he had attained as "Synista". "At that time, I didn't know that the lifestyle I was living was a life separated from God," says MYNISTA.
