Leap of Faith 2 by Legacy is a cinematic rap album. It is the follow-up to 2021’s ‘Leap of Faith’. LOF was nominated for “Project of the Year” at FiveTwenty’s .WavMaker Awards.

Legacy stated that the project was “inspired and executed by Yah.” It features appearances from: Kay Sade, Q-Flo, Alcott, and Chiwaz.

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.

Trutha kicks off 2022 with his new single, Resurrection

Featuring Q-Flo, Prodi da Prodigal, and Legacy, the record is produced by YJO. This collab is a call for a revival of authentic Christians in the world today. Trutha, Q-Flo, Prodi, and Legacy are bringing a resurrection of lyricism and a fire back to the kingdom of God.

On this episode of Beyond the DMs, host Eric N. Boston (@EricBoston3) is joined by Christian Hip Hop legend and God Over Money artist Selah The Corner (@Iamthacorner)

Selah sets the record straight on “that diss record”, talks about collaborating with the next generation of CHH, and what may be the future of the genre.
