Houston, TX – Brought together right after Hurricane Katrina, Abstrakt is ready to take the world by storm as the latest group to sign to Rapture Recordz. Despite this play on words (Take the World by Storm is the name of label mate, 1st Kuzzins’ album), Abstrakt means serious business when it comes to creating music.

This one-two combination consists of Yung Serg and LoSmoothe. And although both hail from Houston which is known for its slow southern sound, LoSmoothe says their style “is far from that.” They aren’t interested in talking about drugs or gang-banging, but they create music that “everyone can relate to, ” LoSmoothe adds.

In an industry filled with talented artists, Abstrakt stands out by bringing a fresh perspective to an old-school tradition. Hot beats, a unique sound, and lyrics that make you pause and rewind are just a few elements that help keep Abstrakt “in its own lane” in the words of Yung Serg.

Abstrakt joins 1st Kuzzins and Christian rapper, Tre, on Rapture Recordz’s ever-expanding roster. There’s only one thing left to say…. Go Abstrakt!

Bobby “Tre9” Herring, a popular Christian rapper and missionary, recently signed with Rapture Recordz. Although this is a new deal, Tre9 is a veteran in the Christian hip-hop scene. In 1998, Tre9 started Much Luvv Records; which has released over 17 albums since its inception. This has many people wondering why he made the switch and chose to sign with a secular record label.

“As a hip-hop missionary, my mission is to fulfill the Great Commission (Matt 28:19-20). In order to do that, I need to go into the mission field where the harvest is plentiful. Rapture Recordz has the ability to put me in environments where I would have more opportunities to share my story, His story and the plan of salvation,” says Tre9.

This isn’t the first time Tre9 has sought out opportunities to reach what some might call the “unreachable.” Tre9 is in full-time ministry, and pastors Hip Hop Hope Tuesdays, a non-traditional church in Houston’s fifth ward. He also feeds the homeless in downtown Houston with the help of his wife, Amanda, and volunteers. And if that wasn’t enough, he is the co-founder of, one of the leading news and media sources for Christian hip-hop culture.

As the first Christian artist on Rapture Recordz, some might say that Tre9 has a lot to prove. However, Dwan Banks, CEO of Rapture Recordz, believes that Tre9 “will bring so much experience, talent, and passion to Rapture. I’ve known Tre for years and it’s good to see someone practice what they preach—whether they’re a Christian rapper or not. It’s only up from here!”
