History[edit]

Philip Rood founded Rapzilla at the age of 15 in 2003 in Brussels, Belgium.[2] He wanted to bring more diversity on the internet for Christian Hip Hop, since only a few Christian Hip Hop sites existed.[2]

Rapzilla has grown today to become the biggest Christian Hip Hop online magazine with over 150,000 unique visitors monthly.

Rating system[edit]

According to website co-owner Chad Horton, reviews by Rapzilla include an averaged rating by the staff in order to weight against any bias by a particular reviewer.[3] Also, any albums that rate lower than 3 or 3.5 are usually not reviewed unless they are highly popular.[3]
