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 and Apple Music to listen to all the latest.
 
Wande feat. Lecrae & Mike Todd - "Blessed Up Remix"
Nigerian-born, Texas-raised Reach Records artist Wande surprises her fanbase with a remix to her first track under the label. Two years ago in April, Wande officially signed with Reach as their first female artist and released a new single titled, "Blessed Up." To celebrate the two-year anniversary, a remix was created with Reach co-founder Lecrae and Pastor Mike Todd of Transformation Church. To date, the original version has been streamed on Spotify over 2.5 million times. Lecrae blessed the track with some of his strongest bars since his album release back in August of 2020. Pastor Todd closes out the track with an encouraging message speaking on how blessed the people of God remain. The video focuses on the original concept of staying blessed adding the beauty of black-owned entrepreneurs and small businesses in the Greater Atlanta area. Listen to "Blessed Up (Remix)" on Spotify here.
 

Rap Should Be Fun, Vol. 1 by Mitch Darrell
Independent, North Carolina-based rapper Mitch Darrell released his first official mixtape. The concept behind the project was birthed from a recent period of time when Darrell felt creating art through the medium of music wasn't fun or enjoyable anymore. At times, insecurities and the business side of the music industry lead to artists forgetting the core concept of why they began making music initially. Therefore, he decided to make a concentrated effort to create music with fun as its priority (returning to the basics).

The mixtape features 11 tracks, four main producers, and a total of 12 featured artists. Standout tracks include "A lot on My Mind" featuring Gitemjay & TC detailing the struggles currently faced, "Chop It Up, Pt. 2" featuring Kris Noel, Quodraveion, & Alcott, and the closer "Why I Rap." The content is personal, yet playful. The mixtape showcases gritty bars and the positive highlights of why rap is fun beyond honoring God first. Listen to Rap Should Be Fun, Vol. 1 on Spotify here.


Mission - "Worthy"
RMG Amplify's Mission proves once again he's one of the most underrated artists in the CHH space. "Worthy" details out the value of believers in the eyes of God regardless of what the world stamps upon us. Mission calls us to put aside the lies of society and focus on the love everlasting found in our Creator. He takes the constant comparisons heard in daily conversations downplaying the worth of His people and adds a personalized spin covered in witty wordplay and fire rhyme schemes. If ever feeling insecure, lacking, or depressed, Mission offers an uplifting track to build up the people of God. Listen to "Worthy" on Spotify here
