Stefan “The Scientist” Moss, a native Bahamian, is a musical journeyman who has 20 years of experience in the industry. That alone speaks for his ambition and persistence. Stefan is an intellectual man who is very down-to-earth in his approach to delivering his progressive ideals through his creative pursuits. There is a unique blend of artful emotion, personal morality, and scientific curiosity that makes Stefan such a successful renaissance man. Yet his humble spirit and strong desire to stay in touch with his family keeps Stefan directed on his God-driven path of self-excavation.
None of the titles we could put over your head seem to fit. We could call you a singer, hip hop artist, reggae artist, poet, scientist, professor, father, husband and more. For those who are just hearing about you, who is Stefan Moss?
To be honest, I’m a beggar trying to tell another beggar where to find bread. I’m a kingdom citizen. I’m a 242 (Bahamas area code) representative. I’m someone who just loves God and believes that God has a call on his life and just going after it. You know? Sometimes you have people who leave the Bahamas and then they forget where they came from and all of the things that make us who we are. And all of those things were formed and forged on that rock. [Stefan laughs] Yes, it’s all a critical, essential part of who you are. From my experience, I was really introduced to you back in the days of cassette tapes with your group, Supernatural. [Stefan laughs] Yes!
Supernatural was the Bahamian hip hop group that had you, Manifest, TaDa, and of course the one and only Double Six in it correct?
I have to take you back in time two years before that with a group named Ekklesia. Ekklesia was the first group that we started. We started it back in ‘94 and our manager at the time was Quincy Parker, a.k.a. Daddy Q. He was really instrumental. We did a couple talent shows; myself, a guy by the name of Dana Knowles and another guy by the name of Jeron Reckley. We did a couple talent shows at our church, BFM, and Quincy was there like, “Hey, we need to form a group.” So we formed this group Ekklesia and we started hitting the churches and going out in parks, outreaches, ministering to people, and talking about our faith, sharing our life experiences and we did that for a year or two. Almost three years. We traveled with Pastor Dave Burrows, who was the youth pastor at Bahamas Faith Ministries. We traveled to several countries, got a chance to really get out there ministering and sharing our testimony. After a while we started going our separate ways but I was still hungry to do more music. So I connected with Raymond "Double Six" Eneas and of course the international Terneille “TaDa” Burrows to form the group Supernatural. Now that particular version of the group ended when I decided to go off to school. Taking the place of me in the group was Lavard Parks a.k.a. Manifest who we all know now as the Positive Prince of Hip Hop.
