Da Commissioner "Assault & Battery"

Assault & Battery is the debut single from Da Commissioner.

“From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has suffered violence, and the violent take it by force.”  Matthew 11:12

Assault & Battery serves as a notice to the Christian Rap genre.

There is no time for games, not when the enemy remains busy plotting to kill, steal, and destroy. Now is the moment to rise up and reclaim that which was placed in our care. The debut single from New York’s Da Commissioner is a gritty, aggressive, vintage east coast record. The streets meet the Savior in a verbal onslaught against the devil.

Da Commissioner bypasses a hook and gives listeners a steady stream of bars that stand up against hip-hop’s most rugged verses. Assault & Battery is filled with hard-hitting punchlines and content that is doctrinally sound. 

Assault & Battery is “a very raw and in-your-face assault on Satan and the kingdom of darkness. [It is a] response to the spiritual war he has waged on the saints in the body of Jesus Christ.”

Production was crafted by Buckroll and Pastor Charles AR oversaw engineering duties to compliment Da Commissioner’s cadence and delivery. Having recorded alongside some of CHH’s elite lyricists, Da Commissioner is more than prepared to step out on his own. He is proving that hip hop’s concrete foundation is far from a thing of the past and is more than relevant to today’s audience. 

Assault & Battery is available now on digital streaming services including Spotify and Apple Music. The music video is live on YouTube and you can view it below. Let us know what you think of this debut record in the comments as well!

Lyricism, punchlines, and intensity are not forgotten in the hip-hop world.

Menace Movement’s C4 Crotona is determined to keep the lyricist alive and well in Christian hip hop.

C4 recently created a Spotify playlist titled GrittyCHH. The emcee has curated this playlist with the intent to educate. When C4 was first introduced to CHH, it was difficult for him to find the sound that made him fall in love with hip-hop. C4 has a background in the battle rap scene and it was a task to find music that sonically matched what is typically associated with that world.

“[I was looking for] those hard hitting, east-coast sounding beats. With lyricism, punchlines, and intensity to match,” explains C4 Crotona. “As I have pursued this genre, I’ve provided that sound.”

While touring and performing, C4 has met fans and supporters that didn’t know that CHH could sound like this.

“I’m glad there is someone who is doing it!”

Though the compliments are nice, the remarks that the gritty sound does not exist in CHH are not true. 

There are many artists, both old and new, that provide that sound. Putting a spotlight on that style is the heart behind the creation of the GrittyCHH playlist. It is a place where those who come to CHH, fans and artists alike, have the opportunity to hear what’s going on.

GrittyCHH consists of veterans such as Stephan The Levite, Datin, R-Swift, Selah The Corner, Mouthpi3ce, and Eshon Burgandy. Next to these legends in the genre, C4 has included newer artists like Q-Flo, Battz, Pastor Charles AR, Prodi Da Prodigal, and Kalom Montgomery. But these are not the only artists you will find. New additions to the playlist will be found on a regular basis.
