Tennessee, Puerto Rico, Washington DC, Maryland and
even as far out as Canada.
There will be a host of Dee
Jays, Graffiti Artists and Break-dancers as well. All
will be displaying, not only their talents and passion
for the hip-hop origins, but their love for God and
desire to worship Him with their talents and
Last year approximately 3,000 people throughout the
course of the day visited Rap Fest. Due to heavy
promotion and great news spreading by word of mouth,
we anticipate a higher attendance this year. This is a
free event for everyone. Press passes are available on
site for the media personnel attending.
