Welcome to our weekly episode of Rapzilla.com’s Top Christian Rap News Recap. We endeavor to grab the best stories from the previous week and give them to you every Monday.
Watch Our Christian Rap News Show Below:
GAWVI New Album
Reach Records artist and producer GAWVI just revealed his next project Heathens
will be coming out on April 10th.
The album will feature Trip Lee, Aklesso, Wordsplayed and more.
“With this record, I wanted to say, ‘Hey world, I’ve been labeled as a heathen, not because I am a sinner or a bad person, but because I went against the ‘Christian culture mold’.”
Datin on Shade 45 Cypher
GOM’s Datin made an appearance on Shade 45
where he beat the bricks off the English language. He was invited to the station to rip up some verses on the Sears Serious Cypher…and Lord have mercy…
I don’t have much more to say except go watch the clip now. The man kills it.
Lecrae got his first platinum record
alongside Tori kelly for their smash single “I’ll Find You.” The song and subsequent music video help raise a ton of money for St. Jude’s medical facility for kids with cancer.
For those that don’t know, Platinum means over a million units sold. Even though the song has been streamed in various fashions well over a million times, streaming equivalents are factored in differently than a full sale of the song say on iTunes. Anyway, congrats to Lecrae and Tori.
We want to express how thankful we are that Ty Brasel
was not seriously injured during a recent car wreck with a drunk driver. Ty, keep your head up, I’m sure music will be coming out of this.
KJ-52’s book Victory Lap
came out on multiple platforms. The book along with the album of the same name puts an endcap on his over 20-year-career.
We also dropped an article featuring some not yet known indie CHH picks
