Christian Hip Hop website Rapzilla.com and Hype Radio Forge Partnership
(NASHVILLE, Tennessee) – The most syndicated Christian Hip Hop radio show, ‘Hype Radio with Chris Chicago,’ forges partnership with Rapzilla.com, the most visited Christian Hip Hop website.
“Rapzilla.com has established a strong brand and presence within Christian music, however one weak point of ours is support for DJ’s on the radio. One reason Rapzilla hasn’t placed a focus on highlighting DJ’s on the radio is that they have been far and few between” says Rapzilla.com’s Chad Horton. “I think there are a few major reasons for that, however we are working to do what we can to help bridge the gap in Christian Hip Hop between radio, DJ’s, and the listeners.”
‘Hype Radio with Chris Chicago,’ is the most syndicated Christian Hip Hop and R&B radio show on the planet. With a massive reach to over 200 AM and FM stations, combined with production quality rivaling that of any top Christian or secular radio show, Hype Radio makes a BIG splash for Christian Hip Hop.
“We just want to be the best that we can be, and reach as many souls as possible! That is why we felt it necessary to align ourselves with the top website out there!” says Hype Radio’s Chris Chicago. “We are very excited for the future of Rapzilla and Hype Radio! ”
With this partnership, and solid relationship with leading Christian radio chart ChristianMusicWeekly.com, will come education and organization for DJ’s spinning Christian Hip Hop and R&B. The goal is to get all Christian Hip Hop and R&B spins reported to ChristianMusicWeekly.com. The result will be a professional and organized representation of the Christian Hip Hop movement within the larger CCM market. This will ultimately open doors for DJ’s to spin Christian Hip Hop on more stations, and fill a long time gap in the Christian Hip Hop movement with massive trickle down benefits for years to come.
Founded in 2003 by teenage Christian music fanatic Philip Rood, Rapzilla.com displayed forward thinking and cutting edge features, which developed into one of the most dependable and well-known Christian Hip Hop destinations online. A recent sharing in ownership and responsibilities with music and marketing work horse, Chad Horton, has resulted in 40% growth in all key metrics, breaking all internal key metric records.
