The Gospel Music Association has announced its award nominations for 2021.

The 52nd annual awards show is scheduled to be held on October 19th. Until then, there is exciting news for the independent CHH community.

While hip hop and the larger Christian music space have, let’s say, a somewhat rocky relationship, it is safe to say that the bigger name in the hip hop circle usually gets recognized. It’s understandable. The broader Christian audience may have some level of familiarity with the likes of artists like Lecrae, Andy Mineo, and Aaron Cole. However, a group of artists we are quite familiar with have a reason to hold their heads a bit higher.

JIMMY ROCK’s single Worth It (featuring DJ Mykael V, J. Crum, and Rockstar JT) caught the attention of the GMA’s in 2021.


While Worth It faces some stiff competition (you may notice a guy named Kanye is also on the ballot), the nomination itself feels like a big step for the sub-genre.

Give these guys their flowers!
