Biography

The Prologue:
Lets start out with the basics. First off, DONT GET THE NAME TWISTED! Yes we're called "The Hellraisers" and Yes was do Gospel Hip Hop! When we were younger, we were always getting into some kind of mischief. We were young kids with BIG imaginations and the elders would see us around the neighborhood and laugh and joke like" Hahaha, Look at those little hellraisers." As we got older, the name took on a whole new meaning. As we learned more about Jesus Christ and the Lord, we wanted to be "Souljahs" in this war against the evils and sins that plague humanity today. We wanted to Flip the "Hellraiser" name against the Devil show him the we are willing to FIGHT! With our music we are slapping, poking, prodding, show no mercy and no love to the "Liar". We are "The Hellraisers" that get on the Devils nerves everyday and Night! So that's why we're proud to say "I'm A Hellraiser YeaYeah!"

The Story:
The Hellraisers have been slangin' the gospel for over 10 years. They started writing lyrics in lil Lous' 3 bedroom apartment at the age of 15. At this point in time they called themselves EBW-Z (Earth Bound Warriors). They recorded what they could on, what appeared to be, a 1980's tape recorder. From there, they moved on to the 1990's tape recorder. (you know...the one with the smaller tapes) It was at this point in time when they started calling themselves The Crock (C-Rock) and The Plague (Lil Lou): "The Hellraisers". They recorded freestyles and pen lyrics all the time. They then came to record songs that could be heard on the computer via e-mail or floppy disk. This went on until they met Charlie and entered the C-4 era.
Charlie was a local SA-Town rocker who had his very own home studio. He offered "The Hellraisers" a chance to record quality music and gave them a very good studio deal. They created their first underground album, titled: Livin' in da' Ghetto, and passed out the lyrical good news to people all over the city with no charge or cost AT ALL. Soon after that, The Hellraisers music started showing up on cell phones as ringers, on "best of" cd mixes, and even in other cities such as Chicago, Houston, New York, and Washington D.C.
In 2004, one half of The Hellraisers, Lil' Lou, entered a rap competition called the "Rip da' Right Rhyme" contest. In round one, he lyrically assassinated the local San Antonio rappers and headed out for round two of the contest in Houston, Texas. After burning the other contestants with his lyrical fire in Houston, he headed off to New York for the third and final round of the competition. Once again, lil' Lou swept his combatants off their feet and won himself a trip to the Bahamas with a chance to open a concert for rap stars MC Lite, Curtis Blow and Houdini.
The Hellraisers now record all of their music at the church, Dios Restaura. They've recorded more new songs and have many more on the way. Apart from originating lyrics with no cursing, Hellraiser, c-Rock, creates completely original beats for the rap dual to manifest their lyrics on. Recently their songs have been playing on ipods and mp3 players, along with underground albums "The Journey", and "Hellraisers the collection: c-Rock edition". There is a new album on the way so dont miss it.

Feels Like Heaven

Written By: Lil Lou / C-Rock

"Feels Like Heaven"

Hook:(0:11-0:31)
Sunny Days, Sweeping the clouds away, (And This feels like heaven)
You're so good to me, your blessings and love are great, (And this feels like heaven)

Verse:(0:31-1:32) (Lil Lou)
It feels so great, so good,
Just to be with you in your state, your hood,
Just to spread the message of Gods love and life, to fight for what's right,
To give sound advice and speak upon the light,
Now back in the days i was livin for sinnin, and grinnin to all the women and wantin
them in mind winnin, hopin to see'em in linnen and lettin them all up in'em,
But now im better and changin, arrangin pieces of venom, (you feel me)
Now that i've changed, im a better man, i take a better stand, and force a better hand,
here in a better land, infront of my better fam, i ready to let you know, that we can all show we can, (yeah)
So put that fist in the air if you're feelin what i'm sayin,
Yeah im a true Hellraiser but do think its Hell i'm raisin,
Its the power of God's love here that im steady statin,
And best believe i cant for a day we gonna be here without satan,
(So sunny day)
Besta be comin when i've gon' off in the zone,
(Sweep the clouds away)
I've gots ta keep the people jumpin pumpin shinnin like chrome,
(You're so good to me)
For all the blessings and lessons you've taught me i must confess and,
(And your love is great)
And This feels like Heaven

Hook:(1:32-1:51)
Sunny Days, Sweeping the clouds away, (And This feels like heaven)
You're so good to me, your blessings and love are great, (And this feels like heaven)

Verse:(1:52-2:31)(Sarah)
I can feel your warmth on my face, (warmth On my face)
You make all the rain clouds roll away, (roll away)
I've gotta stop, (ohhhhh), then i pray, (Then i pray)
And thank my God for another beautiful day,
(I'm finding it so hard to be without you) (be without you)
I'm thanking you my God for being so cool, (being so cool)
What would i ever do without you, (Do without you)
And it's true, (and its true) Come on and fill me with your light you know i really love you...

Hook:(2:31-2:51)
Sunny Days, Sweeping the clouds away, (And This feels like heaven)
You're so good to me, your blessings and love are great, (And this feels like heaven)

Verse:(2:51-3:31) (C-Rock)
I Keep a smile on my face cause im glad and happy,
People comin down my way and they're askin whats hapnin,
Everybodys got beef like their diet is adkins, but im,
Steadily laughin, chillin and relaxin, (Yo)

Im Wit my people, that's my family and friends,
And i know that we stick together and our souls will mend,
Till the, very end, got a hand to lend,
Cause when it all starts with God then it ends with AMEN, (yea)

It feels like heaven when im up on this mic,
And i'm, hittin the devil like a MMA strike,
Left Jab is Evilness and right hook to his pride,
Cause when Gods the Referee then its ground and pound all night,

But don't call me George St.Pierre,
Im a Champion on another level far from here,
I overcame all the drama all the stress and the fear,
And it probably feels like Heaven Cause my God is right here...

Hook:(3:31-End) (3X)
Sunny Days, Sweeping the clouds away, (And This feels like heaven)
You're so good to me, your blessings and love are great, (And this feels like heaven)

They follow and try to move like (uh-huh)
Now let me do this how i like,
Everybody knowin i can take it to an incredible level leavin demons all up in the dust,
Got me speedin and fiendin for people wantin to believe and i gotta keep it goin for the youth and baby its a must,
I don't really think that anybody really has the Gaul,
Try to come against the fire baby bringin pain and all,
And nobody really wanna come and make to another give'em what they really wanna hear, come on lets have a ball,
Everybody wanna smile when your feelin down,
Everybody wanna frown when you make it up,
But can nobody ever stop my godly swag,
And everybody wanna hate when you're feelin loved,
But aint nobody gnna bring me down,
I'mma be the one to keep this going to the end of infinity,
This is real in me,
And imma keep on spittin harder than anybody ever comin thinking that they killin me!!!

C-Rock: (1:56-2:36)
Awww Snap, look that way,
whos that boy, what's his name?
Walkin round here like he owns the place, that's what people say when they see my face,
But im not startin trouble im just doin my thang,
And all i really wanna do is chill and hang,
But evil people gettin grumpy and mad,
So i guess that's my godly swag,
And everybody's trying to figure out if theirs any way out of this predicament i'm in,
It doesn't really matter how i look at the attitude and the ????? within,
See once upon a time when i was just an adolescent little boy the lord came to my life and changed me for the better,
Its all because of him i got the talent of rappin and slappin the devil and laugh when i'm rackin in the chedder,
See i dont wanna brag,
But i got that Godly Swag,
From my toes up to my cap,
Blessed and fresh no doubt bout that, Child of God now how bout that,
heir to the throne, but im not alone,
I got Lil Louie and the San Anton,
We Godly men down to the bone,
So godly swag is how we roll!!!!

Seeing its a sunny day the lords at his best,
Thank you for bringin us all together up in this, i admit

That sometimes i stroll down the road and catch the hater gaukin,
And watchin non stop and blockin the option of coppin knots and
They cockin un holy glocks but im feelin on top and im gnna keep going
and droppin on rhythms that are feelin so hot,

So everybody holla God Bless to ya haters,
Cause that when you're knowin you doin something that's truly major,
And it don't matter how many people that say "NO YOU CANT",
Because you can, if you can dream it you the man,

All it takes is a little faith mix with love and passion,
So now I'm ask, why cant we all just stop harassin,
Or judgin, one another, sister and brother,
Meltin like butter, from the fire im spittin just like no other....

He Will Never Turn His Back On You

Written By: Lil Lou

Lil Lou Verse 1:
Shhh...
I'm walkin down the block (block), I'm lost and dont know why (why)
I feel there's something missing, You could see it in my eyes (eyes)
I think i've hollowed out (out), and am empty inside (side)
Cause feelings that i once felt have faded fast now i think i'm cold and dry,
This recessions got me stressin, I just got married son,
Im makin even less than i was now we barely making ends meet & its no fun,
I'm trying to be a tough guy, and stay strong for my wife,
Put a happy face on like "baby dont even worry everyting'll be alright",
When deep inside i feel, I'm letting everybody down,
I'm supposed to be the man but right now i just feel like the clown,
Till one night i sat on the porch, and looked up towards the amber,
With a tear in my eye put my hands together and prayed and then i tried to remember...

Hook:(1:06-1:33)(2x)
He will never turn-his back-on you....
(No matter what you say, (say) no matter what you do...)
He will never turn-his back-on you....
(His love's unconditional and everlasting cause he believes in you...)

Lil Lou verse 2:
Sometimes I, Feel so Lost,
I Try to do things right, but end up on the wrong,
I feel like the weight of the world is on my shoulders,
It's Getting colder, but im a souljah,

(Why does everybody really wanna try to come and push me down,
I dont even really wanna know just where im gnna go or if imma be found,)

But i can tell you this, and momma this aint no lie,
That im gnna get back up on that path, and i will survive,
Im gnna do what it take to get my life right,
I ask for forgiveness and I pray that he hears my cry-y-eyes,
With a tear in my eye, I put my hands together,
I started to pray and simply i remember...

Hook:(2x)
He will never turn-his back-on you....
(No matter what you say, (say) no matter what you do...)
He will never turn-his back-on you....
(His love's unconditional and everlasting cause he believes in you...)
