Rap Sures

Country:United States
Releases:[Loud, Proud & Born Again] [O.T. Rap] [Gospel Rap]
Info:One of the first Christian rap album released in the CCM market, 1985's "Gospel Rap" by the Rap Sures, started off as a joke. Terry Scott Taylor recorded the album with Rob Watson & Doug Doyle as "The Rapísures". And so the Rap Sures became one of the first Christian rap acts to release a nationally distributed record.

Kids
Terry tells "Well, there wasn't any (rap) on the Christian labels. We do a kids thing, we see it as appealing to 7 and 9 year olds. No one was doing it. We just brainstormed a little bit, Rob Watson and Doug Doyle and I, we were just looking for something to do, something to work on, we did it and then didn't think that much about it, and it was successful. Don't ask me why. We thought, no one will take this seriously, we're just doing it for kids, a little Bible story kind of thing. Megamouth was kind of the same thing. We looked at it that way."
Terry Scott Taylor is known from his rock band Daniel Amos (DA), he is a producer as well as a songwriter for many other rockbands. DA started out as a country band in the nineteen seventies. Besides the Rap Sures he made two children albums about MegaMouth. Another recording for children with a rap theme.
