We have compiled a long list of up and coming Christian artists doing Hip Hop music and over the last few months, narrowed down that list to 12. We'll be announcing our picks for our freshman of 2012 each day over the next 12 days. These freshman are who we suggest you to look out for in 2012. The main qualifier that Rapzilla staff utilized was that the artists couldn not have more than one official release. If an artist has had two official albums released, that would be referred to as their sophomore album. So an artist that has released several mixtapes and been a feature on other albums, yet only released 1 official album, is a freshman by definition, not talent. Without further adéu, read on to see our picks.
