10 Christian HipHop Albums You Should Own In 2018 | Benue |

10 Christian Hip-Hop Albums You Should Own In 2018

The world of Hip-hop has evolved over the years in most part of the world and in Africa as a region. In Africa,the Nigeria Music Industry is one of the fastest growing Industry, with artiste rising from the grassroots everyday, struggling with their distinct style to be heard at the mainstream level with the most popular afro- style Nigerian type of music. Though the populous Afro Music has changed the game of Nigerian Music, putting it on the Map with the music of the likes of Davido also known as OBO and Wizkid popular known as star boy.Thereare some artiste in Nigeria who have made their mark in the Hip-Hop genres of music not only spitting words but spirit filled words (i.e. gospel rap aka Christian hip-hop). 

Gospel rap is quite new to the Christian body in Nigeria.Most churches dont permit its practice as a way of worship or ministrations in their cathedrals. On the contrary the Christian hip-hop industry in Benue state, Nigeria is doing quite fine, as an observer and listener of gospel rap from this region of the world, I have picked out some of the exceptionalities in this city so far, and from my observation of music I can say its a train moving to the right destination. So I have made a review of 10 Christian hip-hop albums you should own from BENUE! 

The number one on my list has to be no other than the legendary album 'Before Now' by the lyrical king Limoblaze.

1.      Before Now by @Limoblaze

Released on the 20th of July 2018, is an 18 tracks project by Limoblaze. Samuel .O. Imo Jnr has this album packed with all the attributes of good music, the good vibe, great mix down, dope beats and above all great content. Before Now features artists such as Courtney Antipas of Zimbabwe, Dee black of USA and UK based Nigerian rapper Seun Otukpe popularly known as S.O. the project also has great songs like Number 1, Another man, and Africa got bars to mention a few.

The second album on my most wanted list, jamming its way to the gospel musical limelight is no other than'The Living Legend'By the rapper who never runs out of lyrical bullets Mgp.

2.      The Living Legend By @MGP (Machine Gun Preacher)

Born Moses Adole, MGP has a lot of studio projects to his credit but we at Voegist feel the living legend was the bomb! I mean if you havent listened to the songs on this project then, you are currently behind the wave of good music and need to catch up really fast. The Living Legend by Mgp was released sometimes in June 2017 but still rocking the air waves. It has this fuse of hardcore wavy Hip-Hop and afro-pop sounds in the mix that soothes the soul and simultaneously hits you with that good music straight to your bones. (LolI did rhyme there though.). With great tracks like Your Lane, Living Legend, Jabulani (ft Kole Williams) and Work (ft Phontera and Limoblaze)

3.      Child Of Passover By @Spillz

Child Of Passover has been a must have studio project by Pascal Ochai (Spillz), since it was released in April, 2017. It features dope artistes like El-Sammy, Leach, Austine Ikpe, MGP, Limoblaze and Oase. In its versatility, it has one of Benues finest reggae artiste in it to put together a fusion of reggae and Hip-Hop, To be a blessing to the body of Christ. Pascal Ochai is also working on a project yet to be released (at the time of this write up) on the 2nd of September 2018.

On number four, an artist's album with a difference 'Somewhere In Life by an icon of Benue youths, Edache Daniels.

4.      Somewhere In Life By @Edache Daniels

Creativity is one thing God has blessed Benue Youths with and it is in high circulation. And music is one of such areas they are gifted in. Edache Daniels, like other Benue born maestros blessed us recently with this great project. Unlike his debut album (Ancient Stones) where he focused on Ancient knowledge, rhythm & poetry, stories untold & messages from heaven to the heart of men. Somewhere in Life by Edache Daniels is an expression of a more in-depth picture of spiritual growth, maturity and experiences in the Christian dome. Its a must have!
