Battle Rap Gospel: Story of the Tunnel Rats

21 Dec 2014 | News

Check out this documentary about the Tunnel Rats.  Produced by Imade Nibokun, it's a real good story about a crew who pathed the way for many Christian rap artists we love today.

"The Tunnel Rats were formed on 11th December 1993, 21 years ago at Dax Reynosa's home in Whittier, CA.  They became a Hip Hop super group that used the aggression of battle rap to spread Christian themed messages.  The Tunnel Rats were often called devils in church and not paid for their performances.  But they persevered to set a template for artists like Lecrae and Tunnel Rats member Propaganda."

There's a certain raw edge to this mini-documentary, just like the Tunnel Rats crew!  Enjoy.
