Have you ever listened to a song that just moved you and rocked your soul?! Well, I hope I am about to introduce you to some songs that do that for me. When my husband and I made the decision to cut out secular music and strictly listen to Christian music, we truly have come across some gems! I want to share some amazing Christian Hip Hop songs with you!
1. Dru Bex ft. Hyper Fenton – The Times
The first time I heard this song, I was blown away. You will probably notice that I will say this a lot, but I absolutely love the beat to this song! Not only is the beat great, but so is the message. (That’s going to be the case with every single song on this list, FYI!) When COVD-19 rocked the world, this song put a lot of things in perspective for me. The message of this song is so powerful!
Here’s my favorite parts of this Christian hip hop song!
[Verse 1: Hyper Fenton] I remember growin' up in school I was thinkin' that it would be cool Instead of the life that I had If I grew up bein' black Maybe we wouldn't be so racist If we all just traded places Maybe we wouldn't be so blind If we had each other's eyes
[Chorus: Dru Bex] I've been on a mission, I've been on the grind I don't wanna be a victim of the times We're all goin' through things, please don't lose your minds It's so hard to keep when you're living in the times Living in the times, l-living in the times We're all goin' through things, please don't lose your minds It's so hard to keep when you're living in the times
No man is an island
Please believe, I've tried it
We ain't gon' last
If we don't look out for each other
If it isn't your mama's son
It could still be your brother
We all got the same Father
Doesn't matter your color
Sometimes we're too blind to see it
Just believe it
If He can dream it
We can dream it
We can achi-i-i-ieve it
I said it, I mean it
2. Justin Bieber – Where You Go I’ll Follow
I fell in love with this song the moment I heard it, and it has been on repeat since Easter weekend when this was released! Justin Bieber really did a great job with this EP. All of the songs on there are great and definitely worth a listen, but I made a strong connection with this particular song. The voices and the speaking part at the end are spectacular as well.
[Speaking at the end of the song] Why? Why is there nobody like Jesus? Hasn't billions of men and women lived on this planet? But why, why are we convinced there's nobody like Jesus? Was He not merely a teacher, a prophet An exegeter, an explainer and yet we find ourselves in history wondering "Is there anyone like Jesus? Who is this Jesus?" This Man from the Middle East who claims to be God Is He God? Is He sinless? Is He perfection? Is He the once and for all sacrifice for humanity? Is He a man without fear? Did He become sin so that you and I might become right in our relationship with God? Is there nobody like Jesus? Did He die between two criminals on the crucifixion? Three days later, did He rise again as the grave empty? Has He defeated death, Hell in the grave and sin itself? If so, there is nobody like Jesus
I was literally going to paste the entire song lyrics because this is the most powerful part in my opinion. I love this part. What a great explanation of who Jesus is and why there is NO one like Him, ever! If you’re interested in reading the full lyrics, (which I highly suggest!) you can do so by clicking here!
3. Hyper Fenton & Moflow Music – Shake Hands
When my husband first introduced me to this song, needless to say, we were dancing! Not only does this song have an incredible message but the beat is so good, too!
[Verse 2] I wonder how you feel like Christ when you're cooped up Ain't the only one with laces that can loop up Some of y'all say "I can hate if the group does" Isn't that the same claim by the Ku Klux? Jesus gave His life when He died for the ruthless Three days then He raised like deuces Lookin' at the devil's missed calls like "who's this?" Appreciate the invite but it's useless I ain't even trippin' on the town when they foolish Don't see a point in houndin' the clueless I see way more clowns than the students You were given more rounds than you're usin' I ain't even tryna settle down, I'm a tourist 'Til they put me in the ground with the tulips I'ma tell you with my whole sound where the proof is If you're aimin' for the truth, boy, then shoot this
4. Zauntee – God Taught Me
Zauntee is definitely a whole vibe at our house, an anthem in fact! My 6 year old loves him, well we all do, but this is one of the most requested songs by the kids! It has a feel-good tone and the message is great, as you can tell by the title of the song. He talks about how the things in his life, how he is, what he has, are all GOD, and not him. Powerful!
[Chorus] When they ask me how I did it I say, God taught me When they ask me how I’m winning I say, God taught me When they ask me why I’m different I say, God taught me This my time to get it God taught me
5. Social Club Misfits – God On My Side
This song is so good, and so is the message! (I told you I’d be saying that about every song!) These two are a great duo and their music always delivers! We can’t do things by ourselves because we won’t get very far. We really do need God for every aspect of our life!
[Verse 1: Marty] I don't wanna see anything that's not You (No) I won't even go, I don't care if that's rude But I meant it though, yeah I pray to God, He never let me go, yeah (Woo, woo) You know how bad I get on my own, yeah Driving in a V6, I don't need to take pics I don't need, need to flex Need God when I'm blessed, not just whеn I'm down Wrote this to myself, can't do this alone, no
6. Spencer Kane & Nic D – Confidence
Okay, so I’m gonna say it again. The beat to this song is great but the message is even greater. There are people who are not going to like you. People who don’t like me. But you know what? God does! And when we gain the confidence because we have God on our side (see what I did there?) that is when we truly have confidence!
[Verse 1: Spencer Kane] Spoke to God, told me "stay in the truth" Patience wasn't lying by the fools Focus, don't know rules again But Jesus only wants a friend My heart is dreaming cuz my dreams are really moving me Screaming through these seasons cuz this change is nothing new to me Remember when you told me in my life cuz you were ashamed of me? Guess I'm more than what you thought of me Bring the beat back
7. Evan & Eris – Be Alright (feat. Steven Malcolm)
The first time I heard this brother and sister duo, I was so impressed! Their voices are unlike anything I’ve ever heard before, and you can tell that the Holy Spirit speaks right through them! This is one of my favorite songs by them!
[Verse 1: Evan Ford] All I see is blessings Got no time for stressin' Don’t believe in failures in my life, it’s only lessons They just making room for what I’m on now I don’t got a clue but I know the One who does know how, oh wow It’s like I’m learning a game with the Maker, I already know now Destiny has my name know it’s coming it’ll never go out [Chorus: Evan and Eris] I know that we all gonna be alright We gone make it through if it takes us all night No matter what the odds may bring our way I can see the blessings coming our way, yeah yeah yeah Blessings on blessings, yeah I can see the blessings coming our way (our way, our way) Blessings on blessings, yeah I can see the blessings coming our way
8. Cass – Sticks & Stones
Do you ever hear a song come on for the first time and you immediately have to know who it is? Like if you don’t find out who it is, you’re gonna go crazy? Well that was definitely me with this song! Cass’s voice is so unique and this song is just so, so good. I bet you can’t just listen to it one time!
[Chorus] Sticks and stones May break my bones But only You can make these bones come alive Sticks and stones May break my bones But only You can make these bones come alive Only You can make these dry bones come alive
9. Uncle Reese – Until I Pass Out
My 12-year-old daughter is the one who found this song! (She was actually 11 at the time when she discovered it!) It’s one of my favorites. He speaks from the heart, and it’s real, and you can tell that. It just makes you want to let loose, and go crazy!
[Verse 1] I truly understand what people may say They believe to think how we think is far from okay But I believe it’s never okay to abandon your dreams And it just so happens that our dream is to lift up a holy king See this is my life my choice and I choose to lift up my hands, And please don’t be alarmed if when the music comes on I begin to dance And run across the room until I can barely catch my breath And fall on the floor because I gave it all and have nothing left [Hook] See I’m gon worship until I pass out (there is no other option) See I’m gon worship until I pass out (there is no other option) Cause we go hard in the paint Hard in the paint, we go hard in the paint when we worship 3x Hard in the paint, hard in the paint, we go hard in the paint when we worship
10. V. Rose – I Love You So Much (ILYSM)
V. Rose’s music has so much passion and I love that. This song is one of my favorites from this album. It is yet another example of how God will ALWAYS be the One and He will ALWAYS be there lifting you up!
[Verse 1: V. Rose] It's crazy, it's crazy You have always been the one That never left me Never left me alone You always loved me Even when I was wrong So Ima keep lifting you up Cause up is just where you belong Down here we got the palm trees Many many many palm tree Why they always throwing shade So cold they got me wanting putting long sleeves But I'm putting on the long sleeves Cause I ain't gonna leave your love And they can try to freeze me out But they ain't gonna bring no doubt No doubt nah nah I know who I am I know who you are You're up when I'm down Can't pull us apart No matter what bad thing is happening you're looking after me LOVE
