Rapzilla is a Christian hip hop online magazine, the top Christian hip hop website. The website contains many sections such as latest news, album reviews, articles, interviews, music downloads, videos, release dates, and columns. Rapzilla is known for its up-to-date news.[2]

The website's goal is to cover quality Christian hip hop music and bring more exposure to the scene.

History[edit]

Rapzilla was created in 2003 by Philip Rood, a fifteen-year-old missionary child living in Belgium.[2][3] Shortly afterward, he made contact with Chad Horton, who ran a similar Christian hip hop site called Hip Hop for theSoul, and the two decided to merge their efforts.[3]

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.[4] Also, any albums that rate lower than 3 or 3.5 are usually not reviewed unless they are highly popular.[4]

Awards & Highlights[edit]
