Mini Documentary: The Story of the Tunnel Rats

Imade Nibokun released a documentary in December on the Tunnel Rats, one of the influential rap groups in Christian hip-hop history.

The documentary details the obstacles that the Tunnel Rats faced when hip hop wasn’t as accepted in the church, as well as the legacy that the collective left. The Tunnel Rats had received criticism because they didn’t overtly share the gospel in the music, but, as Nibokun illustrates, their entire mission was ministry.
