Is Frank Hooker & His Song ‘Hear the Word’ the 1st Christian Rap? [Interview]

Frank Hooker has had a legendary career in music that has spanned over 5 decades. He released a gospel rap song in the early 80s before Stephen Wiley, and it’s called “Hear the Word.” We tracked him down to speak about his legacy.

He may also have evidence of a recording from 1979/80 of him rapping which would be the earliest Christian rap recording ever. Frank is hoping to provide that for us soon.
