5 Christian Rap Artists You May Not Have Heard (Luc’s Picks – April 2021)
It’s crazy to think that we’re already past Easter. 2021 seems to be flying by, but not without artists continuing to jump onto my radar. Here are some Christian Rap artists I began bumping recently. I’m excited to introduce them to you.
It’s time you’ve heard of Ray June. Ray is crazy creative with the music as well as the visuals. His newest single, “Time“ featuring M.C. is probably my favorite single of the year so far, and that visual is dropping very soon. The first time I heard him was when he had KB on a track a few years ago, and he’s remained on point ever since. Check him out on Spotify or at least watch this video:
Zack’s song “From The Bottom” was one of the best tracks I heard last year. His flows and his easy hooks are captivating to me, and his newest track that he just dropped, “Space” featuring Kid Tris raised the bar even more. I feel like he’s been coloring outside of the lines a bit, and expanding on his natural east coast sound, and it’s terrific. Here’s his Spotify, but this is his newest single:
You have to listen to Mike. He’s got a little old school in him, but he’s pushing forward and trying new things. He just released “Tears of Pain” and “Sorrow” last month, and I’m gonna be keeping up on him in the future. Check out his Spotify, but first listen to this song below:
Saint Jones put in a lot of work in 2020. From my count, he released three projects last year. I feel like in a time where people are experiencing so much isolation it’s good to know that music can be therapeutic. He’s got some dope features like Teejay and Jodie Jermaine to name a couple, and his newest project, I’d Rather Be Hot had some nice tunes on it. He does need some work on his cover artwork, but I enjoy his music nonetheless. Check out his Spotify, or see what you’re dealing with below:
The versatility is off the charts here. He can bust out some introspective flows, then turn around and blaze a melody on the next track. I like his laid back approach and his vulnerability in his songs. He’s only got two tracks out at the moment, but I’m anticipating more stuff from him this year. Stay up on his releases on Spotify and check out the heat below:
