What 10 Christian Hip-Hop Albums have Impacted Your Life the Most?

Alright, it’s truth time! There is a Facebook trend going around asking people to share their top 10 impactful on your life records of all-time. Well, we are flipping the script and asking you, readers, to think about the Christian Hip-Hop records that touched you in some way.

Your list can contain whoever you want with no judgments passed and no questions asked. It doesn’t have to be in order either. There is no right or wrong answer whether your most meaningful album is by Stephen Wiley, Mars Ill, or Trip Lee.

For the sake of transparency and diversity, we decided to share our picks as well.

Here are the rules:

In the comments, list 10 Christian Hip-Hop albums that have stayed with you in some way. Don't take too long and don't think too hard. They don't have to be 'right' or 'great' records, just ones that have touched you. Tag the friends who may be interested in sharing as well, including us so we’ll see your list.
