Submission Guidelines

We are the fresh new look on Christian hip-hop and urban culture. We bring together our 24/7 radio stream, one of the biggest Christian urban arts festivals in the world annually in Los Angeles, a dope in-depth website, and TV coverage of live concerts and events, plus we deliver it all on your phone, tablet, or the web.

Jam The Hype is known for introducing some of the hottest Christian hip-hop, rap, & urban gospel music, videos, news, and lifestyle content to the world.  Let us share yours!  Our guidelines are meant to provide us with enough information to best promote your product on our multiple platforms.

NOTE: All submissions are subject to approval.  Submitting content for our site does not guarantee that it will be used.  For best results, be professional & thorough.  Due to the number of submissions we receive, we must be selective and cannot reply to every email confirming receipt, use, or give feedback.  

We will not accept submissions that are incomplete, sent by social media or by adding us to a bulk submission (i.e. submissions sent to multiple sources in one e-mail). Subscribing us to a mailing list without our consent is considered spam and will be treated as such.  

You can also market your content through our different advertising channels that include web, radio, and video advertising. Our promotional package rate sheet can be found here.
