Remember Christian rap? We might as well start way back with DC Talk, that’s where we all started anyway, but how much more do you know? Ever heard of E.T.W. or A-1 Swift, some of the early innovators? What about Christianity’s answer to N.W.A., The Gospel Gangstaz? Former DC Talk dancers Grits? Philly’s The Cross Movement? The Tunnel Rats? LA Symphony?
Any of this ringing a bell?
As time went on the genre matured and the music got a lot better. I bet most of you have at least heard a few of those groups, and a tiny percentage has maybe heard of all of them. Well, for me, back in the day, I not only listened to all of these guys (and girls), I wanted to be them.
