The product of a broken home in a rough suburb of Tampa, Florida, Jonah Sorrentino was born again at the age of 15, when a family member challenged the wayward teenager and fledgling rapper to take up Christ. Pouring his faith into music, Sorrentino changed his performing name: "KJ" was an abbreviation of a previous alias, while "52," pronounced "five-two," referred to the Bible story in which Jesus fed a multitude with five loaves of bread and two fish. While still a teenager, Sorrentino worked in youth ministry at an inner-city church. He recorded a demo, but it wasn't until he and like-minded rapper Golden Child formed a duo, Sons of Intellect, that things began to move forward. Though the two weren't together for long, they made an album and performed throughout Florida, which encouraged Sorrentino to continue on his own. In 1988, he stepped down from his youth minister position to pursue his Christian rap dream as a solo artist.
