This Playlist includes great gospel rap songs such as “Deep End” by Lecrae, “Armies” by KB, and “We Gon’ be Alright” by Tye Tribbett. Gospel music has been around a long time and has taken a new form in gospel rap music. It has a large following of religious people who love to sing the praises of God while still listening to a great beat. Dealing with life’s ups and downs can be a difficult thing, and music can make it better. Often these songs can be uplifting, they can help us understand, and sometimes they can just be comforting.
Often a Christian hip hop song can speak to us more than anything else. Songs have the ability to give us an emotional connection, particularly gospel songs. The southern and country roots of gospel music began from a long history of turning to God when dealing with life’s hardships. The best gospel rap songs are often the most moving of these songs because they are spiritual and create the strongest connection for us as listeners.
The song “Set Me Free” is a personal ballad sharing hope and freedom that can be found in life. The idea of being “set free” is used as a triple entendre: freedom from the industry, society, and schemes of evil. This track is the lead single for Lecrae’s 2020 ninth studio album, Restoration.
In the song “Armies,” KB flips Chris Tomlin’s January 2013 hit “Whom Shall I Fear (God of Angel Armies)”, and shares his confidence in God with fighting his battles. The track marks KB’s first release since departing with Reach Records, a label he had been a part of for nearly ten years. It also marks his first single on Sony Music imprint Essential Sound, which is under Provident Label Group.
Speaking about the song, Tye Tribbett pens down; “Every time I play the song in my house, my family rushes to dance together and celebrate, even during this pandemic! My prayer is that this song does the same for your house or wherever this song is heard as we hope in the promises of a God who has never failed.”
The song “Climate Change” features Aklesso and Wordsplayed, along with production from GAWVI himself and Kilowatts.
Speaking about the song, Jetson pens down; “” Every song is a spiritual highlight in its very own way but the one that stuck out to me was the song “Jetson Juice.” P. Lo raps, “But Christ set me free now oh taste and see that this life is sweeter than a mango, Yeah boy we have hard times, Hard times don’t have us, Hear satan talking like he really bout it; them empty threats don’t gas up, Tell the boy to simmer down now, I’m a child of the King though.” This makes you realize that God is above Satan and he loves you no matter what. It speaks to the fact that God’s way is more powerful than you can imagine. f you’re looking for a short rap album or EP to listen to, check this one out. You will fall in love with this album instantly and it’ll get you hyped for more. I found this quickly on repeat.”
Speaking about the song, Kevin Morse pens down; “I wrote ‘Black Boy’ from a place of encouragement. The song shines a light on all the injustices and what it’s like to be a person of colour (POC). I hope this song helps the masses find hope and peace, while understanding we’re all equal.”
“Coke Bottle” by Brotha Dre is the most timely, God-ordained song of the year. During this current trend of rampant sexual impurity and promiscuity, these men of God unite to stand for holiness.
“There are a lot of overwhelming and upsetting things happening in the world right now,” KB says. “It has never been easier to lose sight of the things that we can still be thankful for. My hopes for “10K” is to remind people that despite our suffering there are still countless reasons to be grateful.”
“Tonight/ Don’t let these moments pass you by/ Like a star, we shine bright/ We’re lighting up the sky/ Let’s be the light/ (Be the light, be the light)/ Be the light, tonight/ Be the light (Be the light, be the light)/ Let’s be the light, tonight/ Let’s be-be the light” – In Her Lyrics!
Donzizi’s newest effort “Fly Away” describes the unique relationship that he shares with the Lord even as he accepts the mission to spread the gospel through rap music. In a time of uncertainty, confusion and fear, Donzizi reminds us of the power of belief and trust in God with this power-packed song “Fly Away”.
In addition to the new single, the group also releases an accompanying music video, that brings the words of the track to Life.
Cee Jonez is an energetic recording and performing artist from Malawi southern Africa. His latest effort “Greatness” featured “Josh Ali”. It’s a powerful song that will definitely bless you.
The lovely song not only showcases Mali’s depth as a vocalist and songwriter but also his prowess as a guitarist. “Count my blessings ’til they really high/ What a life, I been seeing we could really die/ It be looking good in pictures after we are crying/ Make me think of how it feels to crucify Messiah/ Yeshua from Adonai and He been Elohim/ David sing a song for me like 51 or 23/ And the one that I’ve been sent to be/ Foreign language, what you talkin’ don’t make sense to me” – Quote-able Lyrics!
The ominous and foreboding Dre Minor production is perfectly complemented by an array of flows, vocal tones, cadences and rhyme schemes. BleSseD adds a strong-featured verse as these two men stand on the word of God declaring that we shall overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony.
An animated music video was released alongside the single which depicts his life as a zombie. The video also includes many easter eggs and references to his previous songs and albums since he began his music career, as well as other projects by artists on his record label, Reach Records. The track also samples Fred Hammond & Radical for Christ’s 1995 gospel track “We’re Blessed.”
