At the intersection of street beats and solid scripture lies Hostyle Gospel: a dynamic Christian hip-hop group merging musical talent with the Word of God to point souls to Christ. With pulse pounding rhythms and raw lyrics, Hostyle Gospel is igniting a fire of passion for the Lord across America.

Though they reference the Gospel as hostile, hostility is merely the method of delivery. Terse messages merge with edgy compilations to lend a sense of urgency to a searching generation. Countering a culture full of distraction and temptation, Hostyle Gospel is wielding the sword of the spirit, opposing Satan’s advances and winning souls for Christ. Armed with the raw energy of their performances and the ammunition of their Faith, Hostyle Gospel is appealing to youth and adults alike. Hostyle Gospel Ministries originated in 2003 from a central Illinois group called The Elite M.O.C. (Men of Christ). After the founders were called to individual ministries,two members, Proverb (Raynard Glass) and King Soloman (Demetrius Morton), began to refine their vision for the group. Big Job (Fontaine Pizza) was added in 2005 as a frontline member, joining them in performances and on recordings. Since 2005 the group has added King Son (Joe Glass), Teckniek (Omari Thomas), Kamikaze (Daniel Enomoto) and Hdavid (Hdavid Garcia), all of which serve in music production, graphic design, and web administration. Currently Hostyle Gospel has completed two albums and three mixtapes. Their latest album entitled Immortal Combat was released January 11, 2011, and is available via iTunes and other online retailers. Physical CD’s are also available at performances, or HG can be contacted directly for personal orders. The ministry continues to grow along with the number of people who have found Christ through the music of Hostyle Gospel.

Hostyle Gospel ministers to todays generation in a way that is both relevant and entertaining. The live shows include a mix of original songs and lyrical, Christ-centered re-mixes of Top 20 hits from major artists. Performances flow more like a worship experience than a concert. The crowd is invited to join in on the praise and to focus on worshipping God. The Gospel is prominent in every aspect of their presentation, whether it be rapping, dancing, or preaching. Hostyle Gospel is ready for expansion. Eventually the group wants to hold youth conferences in which they would teach as well as minister through music, start a clothingline, publish books, and continue to minister the Gospel of Christ in every way possible.

  8. Hey these dude’s are dope! Wanted them to perform at my inauguration but my wife insisted on Beyonce. Still, when it comes to the war on terror, these dudes know how to defeat those demons with Immortal Combat. #DHB #HGForPresident

  9. I love Hostyle Gospel! They write great music that I don’t mind my son listening to because it’s all positive and about Jesus.

  10. AWESOME ministry! These brothers are serious about reaching the world for Christ. Solid doctrine, bangin’ beats and men of character and integrity!!! GET THIS MUSIC IN YOUR LIBRARY!!!

  11. Truly inspiring, insightful and positive lyrics, and they rock it EVERY time! Get used to them, ya’ll. They’re going straight to the top! Support the movement and be Blessed!

  12. I HAVE BEEN LISTENING TO HOSTYLE GOSPEL SINCE 2008. I HAVE THEIR LET ME AT EM ALBUM, ALSO I HAVE THEIR IMMORTAL COMBAT ALBUM. CAN’T WAIT TO SEE WHAT THEY HAVE NEXT FOR US, THANK YOU HOSTYLE GOSPEL

  13. I’m appreciative to have bumped into these gentlemen when I did with my group Redemption. Look forward to more battle songs, more mixtapes and great albums!

  14. I praise God for HG and the Triple H Movement which is a collaboration of Holy Hip Hop Groups in Illinois. In addition to H.G.’s music what most impressed me about them is there willingness to develop younger artist to ensure that the movement never comes to an end. The last thing I would like to say about these brothers is that they live what they rap about with all of them being married they have not lost sight of their first ministry given to them by God which is to their families.

    Praise God for quality men of God!

  15. This group truly electrifies the crowd when it comes to Christian Rap. They have shed light into an area where young people can find their way out of the darkness. Moreover, the genuine work ethic of each individual stays true to their music and mission, To proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ!
    #touchthesky!

  16. I really love your music Hostyle Gospel. I am a huge fan of their voices. I never heard Christian Rap like this until I heard Hostyle Gospel. #Hostylegospel

  17. Their lyrics are original, message is straight precisional, and if I you still don’t follow, they’re meeting all their deliverables.

    They’re a great group that inspires me and many others to keep God in our lives!

  18. Love this group. Heard them on Pandora and lost it. Coming Back Again is a beautiful song and I think they should win a Grammy for that song alone. Stay bless Hostyle Gospel group members.

  19. Go bless you guys! I love your music.. I completly stoped listening to Rap and R&B until finding Christian Rap and you guys are one of the best.

  20. Thanks to Industryallaccess.com for this article. May God continue to elevate the work of Hostyle Gospel and other Christian Hip Hop artists who are in it not for their own glory but the glory of God.

  21. I think Odd Future, Eminem, Necro, Cage, and Gravediggaz are a good set of artists that they’ll probably be able to relate to.

  22. I back Hostyle Gospel 100%, best believe Christian rap is gone change the game and I’m not just talking lyrically but in respect as to how the world views hip hop! Let’s go Hostyel Gospel!

  23. Please pay no attention to “anonymous'”response. He thought it would be funny suggesting profane artists with anti-christian lyrics. The artists you are looking for would be Lecrae, Trip Lee, Ambassador,Da T.R.U.T.H.,and Sho Baraka. There are many out there, but they would be a good place to start.

  24. Amazing dream there.. i cant wait til we’re all gathered in heaven joining our voices,talents,rhymes with the heavenly host in singing his praises

  25. Great interview! Hostyle Gospel I love how you are willing to give an interview with anyone. I love your realness in your interviews. I pray you will contiune to follow where the lord leads you. I am also praying for your continued outreach to the young, the old and the world. May blessing be upon all you do!
