The Stellar Awards nominees have officially been announced, and the Rap/Hip Hop category features a collection of veteran Christian Hip Hop artists. The nominees for the 29th Annual Awards Shows in the Rap/Hip Hop category are: Reach Records artist Lecrae for his critically-acclaimed Gravity album, Reach artist Derek Minor for his sophomore album Minorville, God Over Money artist Bizzle for his album The Good Fight and Full Ride Music owner and artist This’l for his latest project Free From The Trap. Each of these artists is a respected name within the pantheon of God-glorifying hip hop artists and carries a strong fan base. Considering the number of nominees on the initial ballot, having a group of just four artists is an interesting choice for the Stellars. But fans and industry tastemakers will undoubtedly be pleased that these nominees represent an authentic glimpse into the CHH movement. Congratulations to the nominees for their hard work and achievement! Let the debate begin, what album(s) did the Stellar Awards overlook?
