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 Tuesday.
Watch Our Christian Rap News Show Below:
NF, GAWVI, & HOG MOB
Last Friday’s biggest release was Clouds (The Mixtape) by NF who also dropped his music video for “Story.” As expected, fans gobbled up this new project. Our very own Luc DiMarzio put the project through the Bar Exam. Take a look at how he scored the album and let us know if you agree.
GAWVI dropped his fully Spanish project Noche Juvenil. He also released a music video for the song “Dicen.” Many of you probably didn’t understand the project but could enjoy the project for its beautiful sounds.
Finally, Sevin got the entire HOG MOB crew together to drop the 22-track and nearly two-hour-long MOB Millenium. Let us know if you got through that whole project and what your favorites were.
Lil Nas X
One of the biggest stories of the whole weekend is about Lil Nas X and the release of his music video for “Montero.” It features him riding a stripper pole down from Heaven into Hell and then giving the Devil a lap dance. Obviously, the video sparked a ton of controversy that was compounded by the collaboration with a company called MSCHF where they bought 666 pairs of Nikes and tricked them out with Satanic imagery, including one drop of human blood.
Social media was going crazy, and we gathered up some of the responses from CHH. Hulvey had a response that gained traction on Lil Nas’s page, while Ruslan did a series of videos. Check it out.
Coming in Hot
Also last, week, the song “Coming in Hot” by Andy Mineo and Lecrae once again started going crazy on TikTok and IG Reels. Even Kim Kardashian shared the song. So we took a dive into how this song went viral three years after its release.
Social Justice & CHH 2
We released the article for Social Justice & CHH Part 2. This article featured the plights of WHATUPRG and his immigrant family, Trip Lee’s experiences with racism, and Reconcile’s life growing up mixed and in poverty. It’s really a great piece, so check it out on Rapzilla.
I had the opportunity to have a fantastic interview with Hulvey where we walked through his upcoming project Christopher and I even did my best Narwaur impersonation and dug up some things about Hulvey he wasn’t expecting. Make sure you watch this one, it’s on YouTube now!
