For fans of Christian rap, Peace 586 probably needs no introduction. But for the sake of the uninitiated—this guy is a pioneer of the Christian rap genre who's been creating music for 15 years. His name is derived from the month and date he was saved, at which point he started his career in Christian rap with well-known artists (and long-time friends) Sup the Chemist and LPG. One of the integral members in the rap group Freedom of Soul as well as The Tunnel Rats, Peace 586 also has done extensive production work for the likes of Future Shock, Jon Gibson, Crystal Lewis, T-Bone, and Brainwash Projects (featuring Pigeon John and Btwice of LA Symphony). In 1996, he released his first solo album, The Risen Son, to much acclaim.
