Meet the Staff of Rapzilla: Writers, Interns, & Contributors
Rapzilla.com has been serving the Christian rap community since 2003. Throughout the years we’ve had many editors, writers, contributors, interns, freelancers, and more. These individuals are integral to what we do here at Rapzilla, and without them, it would be much harder to steer this ship.
Many know Chad Horton (Owner), Justin Sarachik (Editor-in-Chief), Steven Solis (Creative Director), and OnBeatMusic (Critique Friday’s Host). But in 2020, we’ve assembled our biggest team yet, and we’d like to introduce them to you all right now.
