The purpose of the RAP-Ture Conference is to highlight talented ministers of the Gospel in an effort to transform the image of gospel rap. Our intention is to prove that holy hip hop should not be sub-standard. It is not an alternative to mainstream hip hop, but a replacement. We use hip hop as a vehicle to deliver the message of Christ to a dying generation. We meet them where they are in order to save them.
