Each week, dozens of albums, EPs, and singles are released in the Christian Hip-Hop (CHH) and Urban Soul spaces. Below, we listen to a few highlights and list the rest for your own discovery. As always, follow our New Christian Rap & Hip Hop playlist on Spotify to listen to all the latest.

King Chav feat. KHAM and DJ Mykael V - "Redemption" 

DJ Mykael V opens up the narrative of the track and provides the hook as this summer banger is aimed to please. King Chav recently penned a deal with RMG Amplify with this single acting as his initiation. I've always felt King Chav gets overlooked as one of the top lyricists in the urban space. This track reaffirms that truth as solid bars are not in any short supply. KHAM from Culture Villains adds his own touch and spitfire wordplay. Definitely a highlight in the list of releases this week.
 

Mitch Darrell x Boomer - "Stop Killing Us"
With the latest black man murdered by a police officer, George Floyd, and the current global riots, Mitch Darrell drops a relative track unleashing some emotions about everything in scope. His producer for the track, Boomer, laces calm keys over 808's laying the foundation for Darrell's lyrical onslaught. I expect the urban space to be filled with similar artistic expressions of emotion as the riots and protest play out as music is an excellent form of therapy. 
 
Mogli the Iceburg - Sad People Make Dope Music 2 
The indie tribe. collective's Mogli the Iceburg returns two years later with the sequel to Sad People Make Dope Music. The narrative behind the project matches well with everything going on in our world over the last six months. One of the most diverse albums in the urban space, Mogli has crafted a candidate for album of the year contention. The records are diverse, filled with unique sounds. The material is relative to people across generations and personal situations. Seven features are included from the eclectic Aaron Gillepsie, partner nobigdyl., the creative talents of NOT KLYDE, and a few others complimenting the project effortlessly. Favorite tracks include "Distance," "Something Changed in You Along the Way," and "One Tree Trill."
