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:
“It is your duty as a member of CHH if you wish to continue operating within a historically black space and actually make an impact. It is your duty as a Christian to continue operating in a business that revolves around people, period,” convicted words written by CZAR Josh of the Culture Villains for his article Outplayed: Black Lives Matter, CHH, and the Church.
I’m Justin Sarachik, editor in chief of Rapzilla.com, snd let’s jump into CHH & community news.
The beginning quote was from a lengthy editorial written on our site that uses basketball analogies, pleas of the historical accuracy of Jesus, and good old-fashioned history to make a solid case. Be sure to check it out.
Like last week, I’m changing the format of the show because there is just so much for me to get through & read & click on. I’m going to mix in two weeks of CHH news with great community news sprinkled throughout.
I had a talk with Angie Rose, Rockstar JT, and Richard Cutright about their work in their communities during the protests and how they have been community leaders during this time. Check that hour-long discussion on Rapzilla.com
Shout out to Ruslan for creating a video series of helpful dialogue for those wondering how to have conversations about race. “How Do we know if it’s racism or just some bad apples?” “What about Black on Black crime, is it a helpful response?” and “but all lives matter. Is it a helpful response?” Check them out on Instagram or YouTube.
We launched a playlist called Christian Rap Africa and partnered with our Nigerian collaborator Olusola. He’s helping us find someone of the best CHH from the entire African continent which is exciting because we can expose more people in the U.S. to the great music being made there. And, it helps Africans come into Rapzilla and discover what we have over here. Proteniks is our first cover artist.
We also launched a Your Top 8 Countdown, a music show hosted by DJ Johnny Jeff. Our first episode covers some of the best of 2020’s Rapzilla Freshmen.
Our next article ” ” contains a slew of resources, links, and information that would helpful for anyone looking to learn more about what’s going on in the Black community, the reasons for protesting, and how you can help. Check that out on the site.
We had a great article about Rapzilla Freshmen Miles Minnick
and how a freestyle paved the way for him to rap.
Luc DiMarzio released his 5 Artists You May Not Have heard
of for the month of June. I won’t tell you who’s on it because I want you to go look for yourself, but we guarantee every month, Luc will introduce you to some hidden gems.
Mogli the Iceburg
The biggest release from last week was Mogli the Iceburg’s Sad People Make Dope Music 2. “My genre is underground / cloud rap / TRL-core-pop-punk / nu-metal / chh / mall-scremo / industrial-electronic-power-noise, dude what’s so hard to understand?” So if you like those things, check it out.
Up and coming young artist Coop shared what was going on in his Oklahoma community. “The protesting has been peaceful for the vast majority. Only a few arrests have been made. Local Oklahoma hip hop artist Jabee used his voice and platform to light up this “STOP KILLING US” sign, as well as using it for his video shoot. Multiple Christian hip hop artists were present, including Kadence and Sean C. Johnson. This was a cool experience on a peaceful gathering of people with a message who need to be heard!
