4 Christian Rap Artists You May Not Have Heard Yet [Luc’s Picks for April]
I don’t know about you, but in this season of social distancing, I’ve found solace in Christian rap. Last month it was really cool for me to share some artists I’ve been listening to recently, so I hope you enjoy this as well. I share a video as well as a Spotify link for each artist because the goal is for the music to get to your ears ASAP, and then provide something for you to go deeper. It’s my pleasure to point you to someone who may become a new favorite for you this month!
A lyrical gymnast from Chicago, she should be on everyone’s list right now. Her wordplay and rhyme schemes cause me to rewind the track, then rewind again. Aasha has worked with Thr3 and A.I. The Anomaly. She just dropped an album entitled WYWS (While You Were Sleeping), and after a notable appearance on So far Sounds sponsored by Showtime’s The Chi last year, it’s time you stop sleeping because she’s really making moves. Listen to her on Spotify or check this cypher out:
An incredibly versatile artist out of California, he’s got great laid back vibes and inspiring melodies. He’s been on the come up but he just keeps getting better. He has some notable work with Mission and Xay Hill. Check out his newest album that just dropped, Don’t Forget. Listen on Spotify or click play on this video:
He’s got chops to put out legit R&B records, but he can also spit. He’s been around for a minute, but I didn’t catch on until recently. Jodie is from West Virginia and has songs with Ruslan, Not Klyde, and KJ-52 to name a few. I really think he’s dope. Here’s his Spotify link, or you can also watch this video:
Spotify has his oldest work as released in 2019, but if you go to SoundCloud you can hear his Becoming A Light project, which was what put me on to him. Since that release, I really think he’s experienced strong growth and found his own sound. In 2019 he released a collaboration project with King Silxs that I found to be introspective and easy to listen to. He’s kinda got a Common Sense presence on the mic.
