Underground Rise

Underground Rise Biography

various artists

There's many different forms of rap now-a-days. Whether it's hardcore, break-the-subs, gangster rap or laid back tracks with intelligent lyrics, there's something for everyone. One form of the art that is probably far less known than most is religious, or specifically Christian, rap. Due to an extreme lack of mainstream exposure, lack of religious rappers with talent, or just plain lack of interest, this sector of hip-hop just doesn't get much attention. The Tunnelrats are trying to change this.

"Underground Rise Vol. 1: Sunset/Sunrise" is collaboration of many of today's best known Christian rappers onto one album, led by the Tunnel Rats. Included on this album are: L.A. Symphony, LMNO and 2Mex, Remnant, Mass Reality, and Sekou the Misfit, manCHILD, Playdough, and Listener, and beats produced by Dert, Jerms, and Donovan Luke Henry. Chances are that you haven't heard of many, if any, of these artists, but don't let that mislead you. Each of them add to this album, mixing a Christian message with plain skillful raps.
