“HELL’S BELLS was an incredible piece of work, but as an African-American minister I longed for a similar exposé that addressed the musical styles that are more popular within my community. Thank God for ALL RAPPED UP!” Rev. Brett Fuller, Chaplain for The Washington Redskins

The follow-up to the best-selling video HELL’S BELLS: THE DANGERS OF ROCK ‘N’ ROLL, ALL RAPPED UP takes you, the viewer, on a fascinating journey into the heart of the rap, hip hop, and dance music scene. Accurate and compelling, this video is must viewing for anyone who wants to understand the “reason behind the rhyme.”

Hammer, N.W.A., Vanilla Ice, New Kids on the Block, Janet Jackson, Bobby Brown, Kool Moe Dee, Beastie Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, LL Cool J, Ice Cube, Big Daddy Kane, Guy, Ice T, Eric B. & Rakim, The Geto Boys, and many more.

But the principles and the truths applied are timeless and most people will still find this one-of-a-kind presentation interesting, relevant, and convicting.)
This two-hour long program is divided into seven sections:
- Introduction and Apologetic
