Antonio Marquet Smith (aka Mission) was born August 30th, 1989 in Greenville, MS. After living in Mississippi for 9 years, Mission and his family moved to Sacramento, California. As a child Mission has always had an ear for music, along with a strong passion and the gift to rap. He started writing and making music when he was 15 years old. Mission began using his gifts in the secular rap arena until one day God spoke to him, and told him, "that he was working against His Kingdom". This was the very day he started making Gospel music and turned his life (all the way) over to God.
