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.

Tedashii feat. Trip Lee & Lecrae - "Respect My Team"
Reach Records' core trio collab on a track of epic proportions from start to finish. Tedashii, Trip Lee, and Lecrae helped mold Reach into the empire it stands as today. Constantly, they deal with criticism of "not being unashamed (of the Gospels) anymore" or being sold out to the popularity of mainstream music. In actuality, the CHH space is what it is today because of what Reach laid as a foundation from 2004 forward. This track is a battle cry of sorts demanding respect for what Reach was, is, and will be moving forward. Trip Lee handles the hook duties and provides a gem of a few distinctive bars. Lecrae never disappoints always providing truth, energy, and fantastic wordplay. Tedashii seems to improve with age release after release as the three tracks dropped in 2022 are some of his best artistic contributions. Tune in for a bit of a surprise around the 2:18 mark of the track. The song stands as an anthem. A proclamation. Essentially, "respect me or I will command respect through my art." An instant favorite of mine. Stream "Respect My Team" on Spotify here.
 
 
George.Rose feat. 1K Phew - "Alive"
LifeStyle33 Records’ George.Rose and Reach Records’ 1K Phew team up for a summer heater! Few within the CHH space possess the creative mindset of George.Rose when referring to his new music promotion (rollouts) and music videos. He’s both an artist as a rapper and an artist with his visual presentations. Huge shoutout to indie rapper Ray Knowledge who directed the video which essentially is a phenomenal movie short. The concept of the track is Christians being happy to be alive and not let “haters” pull you down if you’re succeeding and blessed. Too often we downplay the success of Christians as jealousy settles in. We should celebrate when success and happiness settle in any given season. The production compliments the two artists quite well. I will definitely begin some of my summer nights with this track as it sets the mood for a fantastic time ahead. Stream “Alive” on Spotify here.
 
 
K-Drama - "Rooftops"
Billboard-charting rapper and Grammy-recognized producer K-Drama has written two songs for an upcoming film, Shooting Doves. The movie is an original music drama penned with the hopes of encouraging raw, honest conversation around race, racial division, stereotypes, and how the church fits into all of this. The movie is slated to release next month. "Rooftops" is the second single released representing a high-energy, celebratory track encouraging racial equality in the evangelical church. Stream "Rooftops" on Spotify here.
