7 Underrated Christian Rap Artists Under 21

There are a lot of artists entering the Christian Hip Hop scene every year with a bunch of them being teenagers making dope music for the Kingdom. With that said, here are 7 underrated CHH artists under 21:

James Brexton

James Brexton is a 19-year-old artist from Austin, Texas who has been dropping music since 2020. He started at the age of 7, teaching himself different instruments such as guitar, piano, and drums. James grew up in a family full of musicians, so, naturally, he picked up the talent and skill of his environment allowing him to sing at the age of 12 and produce on Garageband and later Logic Pro X. He is also a self-taught engineer and has produced, recorded and engineered all his songs.

His proudest moments include graduating high school, overcoming academic obstacles, and gaining 10,000 streams on his debut single which he was reluctant to drop as he was focusing on school and his future plans, but released it because his friends and family pushed him.

James currently has a lot of singles lined up and an EP dropping this year. His goal is to produce for other artists, reach people who need Christ through his music, and start his own clothing brand. Follow James Brexton on Instagram

Zdiorx

Zdiorx is a 19-year old-artist from Sacramento, California. He started as a secular artist, freestyling and getting high at parties until someone told him to start recording. After getting saved he left it all behind until Marc Stevens and Mission encouraged him to pick it back up again and use his talents for God. After debating on whether he should do it or not, God reignited the passion in him in 2020. Then, Marc Stevens helped him set up a recording studio at home so Zdiorx could start making songs from his home.

His proudest moments include performing at the Invasion tour, flying to Texas to record his song “N2P” with NotKlyde, and dropping his debut EP, Christian Dior.

He has been silently working on music, taking advice and engineering from Jxhn Paul, and recently dropped a double single called “Salvation” on February 25th. Zdiorx’s goals include traveling and performing at shows and creating a lot of YouTube content. Follow Zdiorx on Instagram
