Isaac Ishmael Ware better known as C.O.P. (Child of Prophecy) was born in Dallas and raised in Tyler, TX. His father was a prophet and an evangelist. He is the 9th child, being the baby he was faced with many challenges from birth. Isaac’s birth was prophesied by his father, The Rev. A Ware. Rev. A Ware prophesied that he would have twins born on Thanksgiving, which one of the twins was Isaac. This seemed impossible to his mother because after the 7th was born the doctor had said that if she would have anymore children she and or the child would die. Just as it was prophesied the twins were born that following Thanksgiving. From birth C.O.P. has had a strong call on his life and a determination that can not be stopped.
Isaac’s spiritual upbringing has never been easy. C.O.P was raised in extreme poverty from the age of 4. The house he grew up in had no heat, running water and most of the time no electricity/gas. Sometimes the family would go weeks without suitable food and clothing. Unfortunately the children could not attend public school because of perplexing religious beliefs. Isaac was taught how to read, write and the basic mathematics by his older siblings. Living in an old dilapidated house, the family was vulnerable to poisonous insects and snakes. By living in these conditions the family survived solely by the mercies of God.
It became clear to Isaac in 1995 what his calling was and left home in 1999. Isaac moved up to Western New York against his parent’s wishes to fulfill his calling. Isaac’s many accomplishments include: receiving his GED in 2001. also In 2001 Isaac released his first CD, the Cop Mission, and won an award for outstanding performance @ the Niagara falls housing authority” fall back to SCHOOL talent show” in 2004 C.O.P. also won first round battle @ the script pro music hip-hop competition in Lockport, on march 9. 2007 he was awarded the certificate of appreciation and artist of the year award @ buffalos direct impact Christian rap/hip-hop show. His music speaks about the reality of his life and the world around him. His music has reached thousands around the world! C.O.P makes it very clear that just because you maybe a victim does not mean you can’t be a victor. Isaac’s message is powerful and reaches out to all walks of life. Isaac released his latest CD, Street Parables in 2006. His songs have been played on several radio stations, such as WBLK 93.7 (Buffalo, NY), WGBB 1240 (Long Island, NY), WBBF am 1120 (Buffalo, NY), TV Program AM BUFFALO and the TCT Network.

They assemble as one unified body and go out to the hopeless areas of Western New York and minister the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
C.O.P. can transcend all types of music, and all styles of Hip-Hop. His music has reached old, young, black and white, religious or mainstream audiences alike. Music is powerful, and so must be the message.
