Gospel Gangstaz

Gospel Gangstaz

It took time for Christian music to fully embrace rap music. Frontline Records was at the forefront of signing and delivering legitimate rap and hip hop to an ever-growing demand by Christian youth. Artists like the late D-Boy Rodriguez and PID formed the foundation for an expanding roster. Rap hit a new level when Frontline signed a group straight out of Compton comprised of former gang members-Gospel Gangstaz. The group is known for their unique combination of musical talent and Christian lifestyle, as evidenced in their songs. The group's founder, Mr. Solo, became a Christian after he almost died in a gang-related shooting. In an interview Mr. Solo said of the Gospel Gangstaz: “The Gospel Gangstaz stand in a position to help, because we have seen how the gospel of Christ is real. Our lives were changed from selling crack, drive-by shootings, car-jacking and illicit sex, to a life of peace, joy and happiness because of Christ. We want to go back to the hood and let our light shine.” In 1994, the trio released their debut album, Gang Affiliated. In winter of 1996, the group's follow up, Do or Die was released. The group received a Grammy nomination in the Best Rock Gospel Album category in 1999.
