The 16 Best 116 Anthems
One Sixteen by Trip Lee (ft. KB and Andy Mineo)
Trip Lee is not usually associated with “hype” songs due to his laid back personality. But something about collaborations with KB and Andy Mineo seems to bring out the rowdy in him. With an acrobatic beat as the canvass, the 3 emcees paint some of their best portraits of God-glorifying art.
Represent by Lecrae (ft. Tedashii)
This is definitely a throwback that few people will remember. But unashamed anthems began with Lecrae and Tedashii on the debut Reach Records release, “Real Talk”. It was refreshing to see Lecrae revive the track for a cameo chorus on the 2013 Unashamed Tour.
Man Up Anthem by 116
This track is historic for the label, considering it features every artist that has ever signed to the label. But it’s also momentous for the movement as well, signifying a challenge to authentic manhood that spawned a movie and conference. It proved once and for all that “Man Up!” is more than a chant.
Don’t Waste Your Life by Lecrae (ft. Dwayne Tryumf and Cam)
Without a doubt, this is a top 3 song in Lecrae’s catalog and a top 3 song in Christian Hip Hop history. It is still, to this day, the clearest articulation of the Reach Records agenda.
