Christian Rap Mix

My buddy Nuccio is a big fan of rap/hip-hop music. over the years he has moved from offensive mainstream rap to the mostly unknown landscape of Christian Rap. If you're reading this you most likely just thought of DC Talk or John Reuben, maybe even KJ-52 or the Grits. Christian Rap is slowly building momentum with a slew of fresh new artists, some converting from bigger groups like Bone Thugs & Harmony, and some coming from nothing, driving around in their car handing out mixtapes just like every other new rapper.

Some of the bigger names out there right now are getting some good buzz, rappers like Lecrae, Canton Jones, and Tedashi are getting nice performance slots at music festivals all over the country. I have managed to catch a few acts myself, i'm still not convinced, but its entertaining.

Anyway, my buddy Nuccio broke down his collection into 5 different compilations for me. i scoured the 150 songs he chose, and broke it down to 10 songs for you. check out the 10-song mix here and let me know what you think.

1. Lecrae - Don't Waste Your Life
2. Grits - Ooh Aah
3. Canton Jones - Livin' Clean
4. Dre Murray - More Than Life
5. Lecrae - Livin' Free
6. Flame - Call Him
7. Lecrae - Changes
8. Cross Movement - Name Up
9. 116 Clique -Send Me
10. Sho Baraka - Maranatha

love that Dre Murray song!
