Christian Rap Music Projects We Are Looking Out For In 2020
One thing that delights music listeners is when their favorite artist releases new songs, a feeling they always long to have. However, they get more joyful when a project whether an EP, LP, or mixtape is to be expected from these acts.
The year 2019 had us witness dope projects many of which topped charts; nobigdyl (Lowercase Tape), NF (The Search), Dee 1 (Girls and God), and many other projects.
In 2020, we expect greater domination of different Christian rap artists with their projects possibly dropping this year.
Here are some music acts from across the globe whose projects we look forward to in 2020.
LECRAE – RESTORATION
Reach Records head honcho Lecrae is a very well known name when it comes to rap, having clinched many awards including some Grammys with his projects. He’s one major act we look forward to on his release.
In recent interviews, Lecrae has announced his expected album titled Restoration. In a chat with Vince Carter, he stated that features to be expected on his album include Kirk Franklin, John Legend, and few others. In addition, Lecrae plans a tour in 2020.
FLAME – EXTRA NOS
Award-winning rapper FLAME will be releasing his EP Extra Nos on Friday (January 24th), an announcement that caught many people by surprise. This project is one of the many albums he has been working on in recent times, the rapper said.
JACKIE HILL PERRY – TBA
When it comes to Christian rap, Jackie remains an OG, one to always look forward to whenever she announces new music. The mother of two who doubles as a rap artist, poet, and preacher has been away from the music scene since the release of Crescendo in 2018. She has since been spending most of the time with her family and speaking at public events. She tweeted about music towards the end of last year and we believe this might be a project since it’s been a while since we heard from her.
I haven’t written a verse in two years. Somebody send me some beats to practice on.
If you don’t know my style, ignore this tweet. 😏

GUVNA B – TBA
UK rapper with Ghanaian roots Guvna B after a music hiatus delivered a huge track “Mazza” where he addresses issues in the society. There have been speculations about him dropping a project in 2020 which will be the latest since the release of his 2018 project Hands Are Made For Working.
GAWVI – HEATHEN
Reach Records artist/producer Gawvi has been one of the many consistent acts for a while. With a big 2019 and clinching the Dove Awards, he’s still not ready to stop for nothing. In December 2019, Gawvi posted artwork which is possibly the title of his new project coming soon. There have also been pictures of him working in the studio lately, we hope the project shows up soon.
KALEB MITCHELL – TBA
Def Jam newly signed artist got much attention in 2019 even in the mainstream with his music after which he got on Def Jam. Kaleb Mitchell also sealed up his new label signing with good tracks. He recently hyped his coming album on his Twitter page saying; ”I’m not gon lie man……..this album is crazy.” It’s unclear if the music will be considered Christian rap.
WANDE – TBA
Wande Isola, American rapper with Nigerian roots and the only female rapper on Reach Records will be expected to release her debut project since signing with the label in April 2019. She has released solo tracks, getting features from artists and even on projects from her label. Having a big 2019 music year, a lot of expectation is on Wande who has also hinted in several tweets about working on her project. We look forward to its release.
MOGLI THE ICEBURG – Sad People Make Dope Music 2
indie tribe. rapper Mogli the Iceburg is expected to drop another album as his last project Let’s Talk About Our Feelings is a year old already. Mogli has also hinted on dropping a new project which will most likely be called Sad People Make Dope Music 2.
AARON COLE – AOTY
Gotee Records rapper and singer Aaron Cole is believed to be planning a project even after his 2019 project Not By Chance which gave him a big win last year even at the Dove Awards, carting away the award for Artist of the year (the first time for a rapper). Regardless of the success of the album, Aaron Cole is currently working on another project, which will be released this Friday. The project title AOTY means All of This Yours.
DANIELLE APICELLA – TBA
Reflection Music Group (RMG) female singer Danielle Apicella will be expected to make her debut project release in 2020 after her great tracks released in the previous year after signing with the label. Towards the end of last year, the talented singer gave hints on several songs she has available already.

LEKAN SALAMII – AGBA IJEBU (The Elder From Ijebuland)
Nigerian indigenous rapper Lekan Salamii formerly known as ‘Oluwatomi’ will be expected to release his tape Agba Ijebu (The Elder From Ijebuland) in 2020. The rapper who presently resides in Belgium posted on his Instagram page long ago that the next project from him will be Agba Ijebu. Anticipation will be very much high on this project as Lekan Salamii has always delivered on every track he releases.
PARRIS CHARIZ – TBA
It’s been over a year since the release of talented rap artist Parris Chariz’s project In My Weakness and since then, there has been anticipation on when a new project will be released from him. We believe he’ll drop a new album in 2020 even as he has announced on Instagram weeks ago with a picture that read, ”mood until the album drop.”
EAZYBOBWIZZY – WHERE IS EAZY
Nigerian rapper and producer Eazybobwizzy will be releasing his anticipated project Where Is Eazy which he planned to put out in 2019 but shifted its release date to 2020. Where Is Eazy project will possibly help to give us an idea as to what Eazybobwizzy has been up to lately.
TY BRASEL – TBA
Ty Brasel has not really been in the music scene since the Destined For Greatness (Side B) release in 2018 with a tour to back it up. Ty Brasel has finally opened up to fans to expect new music from him in 2020 in an Instagram post.
