The expansion of Christian Hip Hop worldwide has been a slow and steadfast process. Okay, maybe not as steadfast as we would like, but growth and development are evident.
There have been many challenges both doctrinal, social and personally when we speak about CHH.
Looking at the list on Feedspot where we have been added as one of the top 15 blogs for Christian Rap, we see diversity. Each platform offers its interpretation of CHH and flair that exudes through each article and production.
I remember back to 2000 when I got into UK Christian Rap, it was hyper-local, there we’re not any resources or places we could find out about artists and music. Hopefully through gospel magazines or shows, but it was incredibly limited.
You have the extreme odd thew who would have features on secular platforms, but far from a guarantee. The community was great but, bubbled to each city or area.
As the internet took hold so did our reach and connectivity, though MySpace, MSN Messenger, and E-mail, as these we’re the only ways to do so outside of a record deal. Burn a blank CD with your tracks, permanent marker print a CD cover from your home or school/college printer and hit the streets selling for free, or get a few pounds for your work.
Getting on a magazine would be very difficult, as publications we’re for signed or hot artists.
Now it is worlds apart, media is accessible and expensive through many means.
