The Frontline Movement had a member on last year’s Freshmen 2013 list (Reconcile) and add another crew member to the 2014 list as well. Corey Paul’s gritty style and fearless lyrics have impressively filled a lane previously missing in the Christian Hip Hop genre. Carrying those verses home are his captivating testimony, a true tale of God’s grace, love and mercy. After making music with his Frontline brothers for awhile, Corey branched out and independently released his debut album, appropriately titled Grace, Love and Mercy. While the project may not have received the buzz of other major label releases, his underground following is strong as are his connections. Paul appeared on Alex Faith’s ATLast album on the song “Pull Up” with Reach Records’ Tedashii with an intense verse worthy of a rewind…or 10. With his inclusion on the Southern Lights Tour with the aforementioned Faith and Dre Murray, it’s looking like Corey Paul may not be “underground” too much longer.
