Here is a short list:
I was asked the other day "What Christian Rapper has the fastest flow?"
Here is a short list:
Can you think of any artist that deserves to be on this list?
I'm sad to see Trip Lee fall out of the Top 5
Trip Lee has been a favorite of mine since he joined Lecrae on “Jesus Music”. I love his sound. He is gospel in focus, grimy southern in flow, and his beats are always hot.
Trip’s most recent release was an album called the “Good Life”, it was accompanied by a short book of the same name. Then Trip proceeded to announce his decision to step away from Music and concentrate on a call from God to serve the church as a pastor.
It is bitter sweet to see Trip Lee step away. Bitter because a great MC is stepping away from the mic, but so sweet because he is living what teaches. Leaving behind something he loves because he believes that what God has for him is better.
Check him out!
Thisl’s intensity is what sets him apart. This dude goes hard on every track.
Hailing from St Louis, Thisl has had a checkered background, but by God’s grace Thisl has become an inspiration to many in his city.
Thisl’s latest project is called “Free From the Trap”. I pray that God will be pleased to continue to use him to bring hope to hard situations!
Give him a spin!
No one in Christian Hip Hop artist (aside from Lecrae) has been as busy lately as Bizzle.
Now leading the God Over Money movement, Bizzle first showed up with controversial tracts directed at hip hop heavy weights who are selling music that is glorifying the Trap life. His career took off because he was not scared to speak up, and it is that courage to speak his mind and bear his heart that has helped him connect with fans.
He now has 3 Studio albums and 5 Mixtapes to his name, as well as 2 of our top 40 #CHHRank artists on his Label. (#32 Bumps INF, #33a Flo)
I can’t say enough about this cat. He is so REAL. Song after song, album after album, Json opens his heart and pours himself out.
Json has a checkered past that helps him relate to your homie living deepest in the worst hood, but there is something in the way he thinks that helps him relate also to the Christian friend who struggles in much different ways. Just listen to the way he addresses a spectrum of people in the song “Parent Me”.
Gifted it the only word I can think of.
Every time he puts out music, I am listening, and I think you should be too!
This where it get really hard to decide who deserves what spot. The top ten artist are all crazy good. I first heard Derek Minor (PRo) on his No Guilty remake. He took a beat and song concept from Jay-Z and made it his own. I love the Not Guilty concept being moved to the Christian context. It was awesome.
I was hooked.
Derek Minor gathered a group of talented artist including #26 Cannon, #40 Chad Jones, and #47 Tony Tillman. They call themselves Reflection Music Group (RMG).
Derek has also signed and released music with Reach Records, while still grinding as the front man for Reflection Music Group (RMG). Talented Artist who never stops grinding!
Give him your ear and you won’t be disappointed!
