Houston, TX has always been a hotbed for talented musicians and artists across the spectrum of the music industry and its Christian Hip-Hop genre is no exception. While many high caliber acts can be found within its city limits, one group has piqued the interest of many. They are known as the World Rejects.
The World Rejects, then an eight-member group, set their city ablaze in 2013 with release of their first mixtape “Reject Familia.” The project garnered a massive wave of grassroots support which helped the group win NGEN Radio’s “Big Break” contest, securing a spot to open for Andy Mineo at Houston’s popular Discovery Green venue.
The World Rejects followed up with tour stops in Dallas, Midland/Odessa, and Austin where the group was selected to perform at the acclaimed SXSW Kingdom Experience. Members’ Phyre and Adrian Angelo have since released solo projects, both curated by BeatKaso, which have been well received by their loyal fan base.
The World Reject’s roster today is much leaner, respectively, and consists of Phyre, BeatKaso, and Adrian Angelo. Phyre’s gritty and stout vocals have been a trademark for the group. BeatKaso’s creative genius can be heard on both sides of the soundboard. Veteran Adrian Angelo anchors the group, providing leadership at the intersection where ministry and the music industry meet.
The Houston trio have just announced their Trill Content Concert Series for 2017 and have a new project in the works entitled “Southern Gospel,” due out later this year.
