History[edit]

Rapzilla was created in 2003 by Philip Rood, a fifteen-year-old missionary child living in Belgium.[1][2] In 2010, he partnered with Chad Horton, who ran a similar Christian hip hop site called Hip Hop for theSoul, and the two decided to merge their efforts.[2] In 2017, Rood sold his ownership of Rapzilla to Horton, ending his association with the company.[1] In 2019, Rapzilla acquired Christian Hip Hop blog New H2O.[2]

Rating system[edit]

According to website owner Chad Horton, reviews by Rapzilla include an averaged rating by the staff in order to weight against any bias by a particular reviewer.[3] Also, any albums that rate lower than 3 or 3.5 are usually not reviewed unless they are highly popular.[3]
