Releases:[The Man] [Parakletos] [Strong As Death] [Hip Bop : Live at Crossroads] [No Fairy Tales]
Info:The Storytellers feature five different Christian hiphop groups

- Brothers Inc. 4 da Lord
- Brother E.
- Lordz Ambassador
- POW
- Sons of God

The project merged the musicalstyles of bebop and hip hop, creating "hip bop" alongside some spoken word. From the third album Strong As Death in 2000 the band changed the spelling of the name into Storytellas.

Innercity Youth
The project is led by Reverend Joseph Henry Cortese, co-pastor of the Crossroads Tabernacle, Bronx, New York. The Storytellers was birthed out of the desire to reach and communicate to inner city youth who are not drawn to conventional church outreach efforts. As a result, during the Fall of 1997 Pastor Cortese invited several Hip Hop ministries to form an alliance with his ministry, The Upper Room Music Company, and formed The Storytellers.
