Each week, dozens of singles and a handful of projects 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.

Restoration: Deluxe Edition by Lecrae
The original release of Restoration back in August already convinced me the album should receive several nominations for Album of the Year (AOTY). After hearing the additional tracks included on the deluxe edition, the 20-track compilation is my pick for AOTY hands down. Unashamed fans receive four new tracks, one remix, and the inclusion of one of the best singles off the 2020 Summer Playlist Reach Records released back in July. "Restored" featuring Hulvey, Wande, 1K Phew expands on an exclusive snippet released with the pre-order of Lecrae's sophomore book release, I Am Restored. The new version includes a trio of young artists on Reach's roster and immediately became my favorite song out right now. The remix of "Deep End" features female rapper Rapsody. She enters the track with authority and begs the question of why more female rappers are not showcased in CHH? Collectively, these new tracks will steadily be on repeat for the rest of 2020. 
 

2045 Deluxe Edition: Airwavs by Parris Chariz
Just a short four months later, World 45 and RMG Amplify’s Parris Chariz returns with a deluxe edition to the summer classic 2045 presenting 11 new tracks. This second round of 2045 contains straight lyricism. Just bars. Chariz out here rap, rapping this time around. “Angel in Disguise Freestyle,” “Making da band,” and “Nextel” are prime examples. Otherwise, the other end of the spectrum are straight Friday night vibes such as “Free da Wave,” “Do or Die,” and “Nothing 2 Something.” Chariz easily will give Lecrae a heavyweight bout for AOTY as 2020 slowly concludes.  Everything is crisp and fine-tuned regarding wordplay, rhyme scheme, flow, production, and overall sound. This is yet another album which will remain in steady rotation for months to follow.

 

Rio 24K - "Deserve It"
Independent Miami-based rapper Rio 24K returns with yet another solid release titled, “Deserve It.” He expresses appreciation and devotion towards his mother and how God has faithfully remained by his side through many trials and tribulations. The production with the melodic piano keys paced behind the 808’s adds to the flavor and perfection of the track.  It’s not often enough we add praises and gratitude to our family and to our Creator. The track represents a homage to those deserving. Make sure to check this one out!
