jrINTERVIEW
INTERVIEW WITH A PROFESSIONAL RAPPER | OCTOBER 2003
John Reuben, who usually names himself as the only rapper on the punk rock show, finally landed a tour with other urban musicians. We caught up with him during the On Tour Now tour with Mars Ill and Paul Wright. We sat on bench seats taken out of a church van that were sitting in a storage room to ask him some questions about his next disc. Read full interview...

The Boy vs. The Cynic - Click to view! THE BOY VS. THE CYNIC (2005)
It's no longer pure hip-hop, but it's definitely JOhn Reuben. This is the most prolific album yet from this artist as Reuben takes on politics and Christians in one swift blow.

Two years gives a man a great chance to learn, and John has certainly done that since his popular debut. Guest appearances from Manchild (of Mars Ill) and Othello (of Logique) add to the great expectations for this disc.

ARE WE THERE YET? (2000)
"I don't set out to be different. It's just what I feel. I listen to a guitar, or hear some real emotional indie-rock or something, and I think it would be cool to lay a thick beat under that dark guitar," explains Christian hip-hop newcomer John Reuben about his writing style.
