Who are the top Christian hip-hop labels in 2017?

I did a google search today to determine who would show up as the top or best Christian hip-hop labels in 2017.

To my surprise. My search did not yield a whole lot of info other than a few reference to some indie labels and some Wikipedia links ect.

Now in my humble opinion, with the ability to access technology and use of social media nowadays. I think it is more advantageous these days for serious artists to look into pursuing self-releasing their own music. It’s relatively simple nowadays to do this and it gives you quite a bit more control over your work and creativity.

If you want to know a great way to get started with your own music publishing and such here are a few links that can really help.
