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:

Lecrae

So we finally locked down an interview with the big guy himself Lecrae. He was gracious with his time and talked with us about everything he went through to get to this restoration in his life. One of the most instrumental parts of this was his trip to Israel walking on holy ground renewed his spirit and focus.
There were many highlights in this article and a less serious and more fun part two is dropping later this week.

Wande

We had the privilege to tell Wande’s complete story and release it just before her new album EXIT. Breaking it into two halves, you can see Wande’s journey from a Muslim born aspiring doctor to how a flip switched and she became a Christian rapper. She went from saving lives to saving souls. In fact, this very show you’re watching now was originally done by Wande.
The trip through each it of her life is remarkable. Read it now while you’re listening to the album. Part 2 will be dropping later this week.

GAWVI

We’re giving you a double shot of GAWVI. We had an in-depth interview with GAWVI where he spoke about the heart of Heathen. It’s basically about him letting go of what was holding him back and being free to his true identity. He takes the term “heathen” and makes it akin to the term “Jesus freak.”
Our writer Elijah Matos also did a break down of the album that paints GAWVi as a unifier and someone integral to culture to keep it moving. Check them both out on Rapzilla.

Antoine Bradford

Humble Beast made some big news this week when they announced the signing of singer Antoine Bradford. He was formerly known as ABIV and regardless of what you know him as, his talent is undeniable. Stay tuned for the album

New Albums

Alright, here’s a lot of info. Social Club Misfits are dropping a new album this fall called Feared by Hell.
Ty Brasel’s The Divine Storm is dropping this week and the artwork, tracklist, & features are up.
Bizzle announced The Messenger 4 will be dropping on May 22nd. The artwork looks super dope too!
Datin also announced his long-awaited CHH Ain’t Dead Vol. 1 compilation is dropping Friday. He gave us a look at the cover, tracklist, and features in addition to the single “Snot Rag.”

Other

Here are two quick stores you can check out on Rapzilla that include clips. Hip-Hop legend Redman made a video praising Dru Bex and OnBeatMusic’s song “Crown.” The scoop is that Dru’s wife had something to do with this arrangement. Very cool!
Speaking of legends, DMX took to IG Live to do a Bible study with his followers. We know DMX has his issues, but he’s never afraid to be bold about his faith. Just keep him in your prayers because we’re all battling something.
