Sansone, a Christian hip-hop artist born out of an otherworldly hope, has released his new EP ‘Way Up Above’. With an emphasis on spiritual honesty and vocal delivery, Sansone stirs together the styles of conscious and Christian rap, creating records influenced by the reality of his youth and his relationship with God. Available now for streaming and download via all major digital outlets word-wide.
Moving from house to house with his mother and father in the Chicagoland area, Sansone’s childhood was littered with pain. Drug abuse, broken relationships, and tragedy were a constant presence in his family as he witnessed the fragility of humanity at a young age. Instead of resorting to anger and despair, he turned to music. He dove into hip-hop after noticing the vulnerability rappers were able to present in their lyrics.
At age 16, he began to write his own lyrics and built a catalogue of tracks displaying his storytelling talent. After losing both of his parents to illness by 22, Sansone felt that something was missing in his life, which translated to a false representation of himself in his music at the time. After searching, he began to form and develop a relationship with God. This gave him the direction and inspiration to fuse his faith with his craft and the confidence to create his own lane in the Chicago hip-hop scene.
