Dash Radio station God’s House of Hip Hop has become one of the largest 24-hour internet radio outlets for Christian Hip Hop, Gospel Hip Hop and Christian Latin Hip Hop with 18 shows recorded all over the nation.
Now, the Stellar Award-winning station plans on going the music festival route with the God’s House of Hip Hop 20/20 Summer Fest set to take place at Los Angeles’ Banc of California Stadium on July 17-18.
“2020 doesn’t represent the year, but the vision,” GH3 co-founder Chanie G said at a press conference. “Whatever faith you have 20/20 says that God has a plan for you. It’ll manifest itself if you keep clear sight and mind. We were blessed by DJ Skee and Mark Moseley from Dash Radio with our very own station and their support as our official audio streaming partner.”

Dee-1, Derek Minor, Alex Zurdo, Canton Jones and many more have been booked for the two-day event featuring over 70 acts representing various aspects of Christian-based Hip Hop. Rap pioneer Kurtis Blow, Chris Chicago of 91.7FM NGEN Radio in Houston and Praise 104.7 St. Louis personality Willie Moore Jr. will serve as the hosts.
“This is unique in a sense is that it’s never been done like this,” GH3 co-founder Emcee N.I.C.E., who is slated to perform during the festival as well, explained. “The mainstream keeps using our music from commercials, movies and TV shows. So I believe it’s time to get to know the folks behind the music.”
Headliner Dee-1 said the event feels like a dream.
“Honestly, it’s crazy to see a huge stage like this and come from such humble beginnings,” he said. “My students didn’t believe that their teacher Mr. Augustine wasn’t going to make it without compromising anything I stand for because God is number one in my music and my life.”
Derek Minor hopes the festival will inspire others to be true and authentic to themselves regardless of classification in Hip Hop.
“I think today is super crazy to think that we’d be playing at a venue of this magnitude,” Minor explained. “It’s humbling number one but testifies to the impact that being honest, true and authentic can come with blessings.”
