“Home for Thanksgiving” is the first installment in a list of singles by Christian Hip-Hop artist J. Robinson. Thanksgiving 2014 marks the moment
when this artist states that he will begin a new lease on life for the second
time. In 1998, Jermaine Robinson (J. Robinson) was on probation in Miami.
Though he was a juvenile at 17 years of age, he was motherless, fatherless,
jobless, and homeless. With no help from the system, struggling to survive and to
stay out of trouble, J. Robinson jumped at the opportunity to move out of town
with his close friend Craig, and his father, to Massachusetts. Robinson
attributes his new life to God, Craig Davis Sr. (father), and Craig Davis Jr. (son).
The Davis family took him in, helped him get on his feet, find a church, and
obtain his GED and Associates Degree in Broadcasting. They were able to completely
change this troubled boy into a man.
From 1998 to 2014, J. Robinson relied on God and built a life of
integrity. He worked for the state of Massachusetts in juvenile jails, group
homes, job corp., and the state hospital. He shared his salvation with
thousands who were hurt by bad circumstances, such as young people trying to
leave gangs and escape street life or those who lost their parents.
In 2013, J. Robinson was arrested during a routine police stop
for driving with a blown out tail light. Though he'd been stopped in traffic
stops previously, this one would lead him to be sent to jail thanks to a
fugitive arrest warrant from 1998 back when he left Miami. J. Robinson had not
completed his probation. Though his life had changed and he had followed the
conditions of his probation to avoid getting into anymore trouble, he had to explain
to the courts back in Florida why he left the state as a juvenile. However, God
protected Jermaine once again. His new family never gave up on him and his
employer believed in his honorable reputation. It took a year of prayer, wise
legal counsel, and the trust of his all those around him, but J. Robinson
traveled to Miami to face the judge. Once there, he explained about the condition
of his life back in 1998, the lack of help from his probation officer and his
troubled childhood. He then explained the work he’d done since leaving Miami,
such as his community activities to help at-risk youth as well as his numerous state
jobs, and proved that the summons was a mere technicality. J. Robinson was
faithful and God rewarded him.
