Country:United States
Info:brandon Arriaga is Dokument. He was born in Texas in the mid nineteen seventies to 2 young "hippie" parents, who came to Christ in 1982. This changed his life immensly. Dokument's mother accepted Jesus into her heart while listening to a gospel radio program.

God's Call
One year later Dok's father also heard God's call. The very same night that his father got saved, Dokument went to the front of the congregation and recited the ‘sinner's prayer' with one of the ushers. From that moment on, everything in Dok's family life changed. "We went from partying every weekend to attending church everyday. If the church was open, we were there.”

Spiritual Awakening
During this time of spiritual awakening, Dok was also experiencing a personal awakening – of music. He started hearing kids at the playground reciting Run DMC lyrics. At 8 years old, Dokument had never heard anything like that before. He asked a friend what kind of music it was. “It's called rap, fool.” Dokument was intrigued and started listening to hip hop and tried to master the art of rap.

After graduating high school Dokument decided to pursue a career as a youth pastor and enrolled in Christ For the Nations Institute in Dallas. But eventually his skills as a rapper surpassed his preaching skills and therefore he brought his ministry to the hip hop arena.

After paying dues in the christian rap scene for many years as part of the duo The Foundation – performing at local churches and humble venues - Dokument was invited to move to California and join the Tunnel Rats. He gladly received the blessing and now calls Los Angeles – and the Rathole (the Tunnelrats' Studio) – home.
