You've probably heard it many times before "Ministry is waiting outside of the church walls" some of us know this to be true. Humble beast Larry Agee known as Mic Larry is shinning his light in urban communities and events all around NYC.
We got in touch with Mr Mic Larry, here's what he had to say...
KingdomSoldNYC: Tell us about yourself, who are you, where are you from and what are your christian roots?
Mic Larry: My christian roots, I’ve been playing drums for about 23 years. I grew up in a pentecostal church right here in south bronx. I’ve been playing drums- that was my first calling that was what I've been faithful over and you know the Bible says, if you’re faithful over a few things I’ll make you ruler over many. So with that God has trusted me with other things. That’s when preaching came in `cause God know’s I didn’t want to speak. So I’m from the south Bronx. The church grew up in is Holy Temple COGIC which is now known as Charles L. Green Ministry which was my first church. It branched out and we went to Inspired ministry sanctuary of prayer, Pastor Thomas S. Cooper. My dad branched out to Focused on Christ Family Worship Center, which is where I’m at now with My dad Apostle Larry K. Agee Sr.
KingdomSoldNYC: What is Mic Larry Entertainment about?
Mic Larry: Mic Larry Ent. Started about a year ago, I am in love with basketball, I played basketball from the time that I could pick up a basketball. One I blew out the meniscus in my knee playing one day, but again I was in love with it so I tried to stay with it. I didn’t want to coach, because no one listens to the coach. I didn’t want to referee cause I don’t like people yelling at me. So I started announcing basketball games. I announced basketball games at the legendary Rucker Park EBC, which is the Entertainment Basketball Classic- that was the first gig I did.Those that know basketball, that’s a huge venue. I started doing games there and one day the CEO asked me “what’s you announcer name?” and I didn’t have one. So I said I need a Mic and my name is Larry but because of Bad Boys with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence he said “Mike Lowry” and I said no, Mic Larry. It formally started with basketball games but after that it branched into showcases, open mics, engagement parties, I did a wedding. I started seeing that It’s not just basketball and I could do a lot more with it and that’s what I did. I started doing a lot more with it and that’s how Mic Larry Ent came about. I started doing comedy shows as well. Things of that nature and it became more and more of a business.
KingdomSoldNYC: I’m pretty sure when you had that incident with your knee, it was unfortunate but i’m sure you didn’t think God would turn it around to lead you to doing what you are doing now and come this far?
Mic Larry: I think that’s one of the things that made it more compelling, I still play basketball, tournaments etc I use basketball as my workout regimines, I play to stay in shape but to be around the game it was another light because I’m a christian so I shine light on different things. So It's Mic Larry Ent. with hashtag "Stay Humble", which is a clothing line that I’m developing and currently working on, it somewhat brings light to what I'm doing. You can still have fun as a christian.
KingdomSoldNYC: Your frequent tags on the Gram have been, Stay Humble, More than a movement, it’s a lifestyle, tell us about that...
Mic Larry: Hashtag "Stay Humble", I did a game, back to the EBC @ the legendary Rucker Park again- Shaquille O'neil was the celebrity coach, we got to talking and he asked me what I’m about. I basically telling him this is what I do, this was in my first year. He said to me “it’s a cool name, Mic Larry it rings out” and I just said thank you and he said “you’re real humble with it” and even though its Shaquille O`Neil, you hear things from other people and when he said it I said to myself, what does he know about humble?- You understand, I didn't take it into consideration until my dad said to me “That’s great son, God is taking you higher, just stay humble”- so that's the second person that said that. Then I had Camron who is a rapper, he comes around and you know rappers these days are conceited and all about them. He said “ hey young fella your doing a great job just stay humble with it” and now that's the 3rd time I heard that. I started using hashtag "Stay Humble" and it started to resonate in my mind that the more humble you are, the lower you are the higher God can elevate you. So thats how hashtag “Stay Humble” came into play! God is merciful and I believe thats where us young people and christians need to be, we need to stay humble. If we can remain humble then He can continue to elevate us and do what He do. He’s not going to share his glory with no one so thats why we must stay humble so God be glorified.
KingdomSoldNYC: Where can people get in touch with you for booking or even just to stay up to date ? and To confirm, You offer what services.
Mic Larry: Hosting services for various events, Birthday Parties, Sweet 16’s, engagement parties, concerts, showcases, church services. As well as preaching engagements.Not only do I do different engagement parties, weddings and things of that nature. I also do gospel concerts, different events, at my church of course I’m the MC for the evening things of that nature- and then I preach, so I get phone calls from different ministries to do youth services, men’s conferences things of that nature. So I preach, you understand- being a preacher you travel, things like that- of course not travel the world but (chuckles) I go borough to borough of course, just speaking. God has given me a gift and I want to glorify him any way possible so thats some of things that I do. Not just all engagements but church services as well. Thats the base of my ministry; it’s in church- everything else comes from that and God has blessed me to take my gift to other places. Before Mic Larry Ent started everything I was doing- hosting concerts was in church, I was preaching in church - I was doing comedy shows in church and it went from people saying “you’re funny you should do this for real” so we just took it to the next level but didn’t think it would blow up this big.
