Top 10 Christian Rappers


The Top Ten

1 Lecrae Lecrae Lecrae Devaughn Moore, mononymously known as Lecrae, is an American Christian hip hop artist, songwriter, record producer and actor.

Lecrae is easily the best Christian rapper out there. He places actual scripture alone with great production and the flow is off the chain. It really doesn't get much better then 'Crae

No competition. Lecrae owns everyone on this list. His song Transformers is amazing! I have never even heard of these other fools y'all musta never heard a Lecrae song otherwise he'd be number one.

Man! This dude is just way too cool! He is suppose to be the number 1st Christian rapper ever! This guy can rap better than Eminem or Lil Wayne!

Cool rapper!

2 Andy Mineo Andy Mineo Andrew Aaron "Andy" Mineo, formerly known as C-Lite, is an American Christian hip hop artist, producer, and TV and music video director from New York City.

This guy can rap! Listen to his: heroes for sale...

Andy Mineo is the cure if your missing music that bumps. Not only does he deliver the word so everyone can understand it but I got my unsaved friends really interested in Jesus because of his music. I love this dude!

Andy is awesome if you're looking for good clean fast rap and a good bass kick Togo with the Andy is the best. He also give a great message.

His lyrics are meaningless - LilXelly

3 Trip Lee

I love Trip Lee music... Reach Records can't be touched...

Ok Lecraes the best, but in my opinion Trip Lee is just as good.
As for others above trip:
Toby Mac has turned more to pop (have you heard Eye On It? )
Thousand Foot Krutch is mainly rock (not much rap)
Manafest is good (but not better than trip)
& Kj-52? Come on. He has some good stuff but he has to have 24 tracks on a cd to produce one good song (because the rest is junk)

I LOVE TRIP LEE, clearly deserves to be #1... But I have to pay my respects to lecare he's just as good.

His latest album is great, covers some heavy topics such as racism and systemic injustice. - Elijah_Cook

KB is a beast with Church Clap, Go Off, and Zone Out these songs are great pump up songs.

Insane rapper! He puts Eminem and Lil wayne to shame!

Lil Wayne..sure, Eminem? He's untouchable, go listen to Without Me. - SlimShadyniqqua

KB should be near the top! Songs like Go and Angels are awesome!

He is awesome I have listen to his music every time I am having a rough day and when I'm getting hyped for a game I listen to ima just do it it makes me fell confident about the game no matter if it is for soccer or color gaurd

5 Tedashii

Don't no what tedashii is doing down here

Have you heard Tedashii? Trip Lee? Andy Mineo? These Reach guys are as good as they come. They have to be at the top.

HE IS THE BEST. I hear a lot of people say how good Lecrae is but Tedashii (in my opinion) is better. He just can't be beat... Wait... WHY IS HE DOWN HERE, LISTEN TO SOME OF HIS SONGS HE DESERVES TO BE #1. - letdot52

6 Flame

He is just awesome. He flows with the beat and his creativity is incredibly rear. That's watsup for the man himself. "Flame"

This man is blessed! Only Christian rapper that I have heard that every verse he speaks the truth of the gospel. Other artists r good, but they make it bout them, sometimes seems a lil self fulfilling. This guy though is always trying to teach or preach about Jesus. The mix track of All In/ Read em and Weep sums it up. God bless all these artist and please keep evangelizing to these youth. Peace.

These days it's hard to find a Christian rapper who keeps God as the main focus of their carrier and lyrics. Flame's lyrics are so Bible-based and Spirit filled. On top of that, his songs have awesome beats and flow. I met him this last week and he is so down to earth and personable. You can tell he really cares about people and getting a true message across in everything he does. He is everything a Christian rapper should be. I have major respect for this guy

Flame is my favorite rapper

7 Nate Feuerstein

I love your music. I have listened to it non- stop for the past like week... I have played all of your songs from YouTube over and over and I'm still not tired of listening to them. (Although, I do hope you come out with more) please don stop. You are an inspiration to everyone. My fave song is beautiful. First off it made me fall in love with you and second, you have a beautiful heart for writing a song to encourage girls. So thank you truly. If anyone reads this, lists to NF's music. It will change your life. Thanks again

NF is beast. He has made the biggest impact on my life out of all of the artists I have ever listened to. He isn't afraid to be real and deep. He raps about the hard things in life, and how you can overcome them with Jesus. His music has helped me in hard times. He is unlike any rapper I have ever heard. People try comparing him to Eminem, but Eminem isn't even close to being as good as NF. He has real content that you can relate to, he isn't just rapping for money or fame. He does everything he does for God. Not everybody likes him because he is real and doesn't sugarcoat how he feels, he's open about his issues because he realizes he's a person that despite his problems, needs a Savior to cling to. If you haven't heard him, you need to. His popularity has skyrocketed since his album " Therapy Session " and I can't wait to see where he goes next

Nate Feuerstein is a great rapper. He may sound like Eminem, but he brings his own message and story to the mix. Check out "Start Over" with Flame, and "Alone"!

Best I’ve ever seen. Best by far

8 Canon

If we are judging purely off of musical talent and control, Canon is simply the best rapper on the market right now, secular or Christian. Eminem has his moments, but is simply not the same artist he was in the early 2000s. Jay-Z is quite overrated. Lecrae is a good rapper, but his position at the top of the list is based mainly on his total success and market exposure. He had accomplished much more than Canon with the help of a much more successful record company. However, one listen to Canon's latest projects such as Mad Haven and Loose Canon Volume 2 show a mature and extremely skilled musician.

So fast and he has good lyrics with awesome beats and a good flow

Canon is absolutely the best Christian rapper there is no comparison just listen to his songs, good to go, ten toes deep, loud music, and where is mad haven, also hear him freestyle every one of his lyrics syllables are spoken perfectly and he is like three times faster than Eminem who sucks

The best rapper out there, want more music by him

9 Derek Minor

Young up and coming rapper that really has the good lyrics and smooth flow that I'm looking for in a rapper.

He alright I have heard better Christian rappers than him but he has some good and meaningful songs

Derek Minor's album Empire is amazing. He is definitely better the most out there, whether Christian or secular.

Just listened to one of his tracks and decided to download the entire album! Rocking it now.

10 Bizzle

The most passionate Christian rapper I have heard in my life. His songs are both encouraging the listener to be righteous and Holy, his flow and beat is awesome and he gives GOD all the honor and glory. Bizzle is way too underrated.

I personally feel that Bizzle needs to be much higher on this list, he should be in the top three in my opinion. The dud's lyrics speak for themselves but I will still comment on his flow and ability, homeboy is super-nice! That complemented with some really dope beats and vocal accompaniments really sets Bizzle's music and his message apart from others. Big up to all of the emcees on this list bringing praise to the Lord but my vote goes to Bizzle on this one!


I have major respect for Bizzle. All of his songs have a true meaning and message behind them. He isn't afraid to be blunt about things. He isn't afraid to stand up for what's right, even though it may not be the most popular opinion. He isn't concerned whether his music will make it in the top 10 or not, he's focused on conveying true God-given lyrics filled with truth and purpose. To add to that, his flow is tight! He should be more popular than he is in my opinion. Bizzle's where it's at. God Over Money, God Over Everything!

Bizzle should be #1. He speaks the real truth on what's happening in the world and the entertainment industry. He isn't afraid to respond to mainstream artists who disrespect The Lord God I their songs.

The Contenders

11 Black Knight

Honestly, He works the most creating his own beats and beats for other artists, while still having time to create great lines for himself.

He's got his own unique sound and style

Black Knight and Bible Geek's song, Bibles in the Air. A catchy amazing song. Do not be ashamed of The Bible, hold it up in the air!

He's awesome

12 KJ-52

kj 52 is awesome, and probably the best christian rapper out there. he is also good for people who love eminem music, but can't stand the vulgarity.

I love his music. He can be both funny (Fivetweezy), strait forward (Cry No More).

He's great listen to the songs, Right Here, and You're Gonna Make It. He's so motovational. I love him

he is good

Speaks the truth just as his name...

Jesus is for everybody!

Umm hello? I can't believe he's not on the list yet- "i can't believe", "Jesus is for everybody"?

WOW! I can't believe he's not in the top 10. Very touching to the soul, and helped me get through the day.

14 Thi'sl

Bizzle's story is among the most impactful stories I have ever heard in my life on a person living in a tough environment, and making it out of it by the grace of God. He has taken the negative things he has experienced, and turned them into beautiful positive things through his music and ministry. His music has great flow and killer beats, but more importantly, it includes biblical truths and testimony of what God can do in anyone's life no matter the circumstances. This'l is more than just a rapper, he is physically going into the hood and streets and sharing his testimony and supplying things for needy people. He's bringing them hope and showing them there is a better way to live. I have much respect for everything he does! He has some great songs, but his rendition of " Greater things " is probably my favorite. - Mikyla

Snap off - look it up if you think he should be this low on the list.
Motivation if you're not into the harder beats that he drops

The only reason he is way down here is because I did NOT like his new album fallen king... But for some reason everyone else did.

The best beats and songs

Oh heck yeah Canton Jones is great he needs to be higher on the list. - SHORTBOYSWAG315

Canton Jones is the best Christian rapper and singer out there. WHY IS HE SO LOW ON THE LIST!?

I truly enjoy Canton Jones music. He is one of my favorites

Canton jones should definitely be high on this list. Like seriously. Listen to his old stuff leading into his new stuff. It's bonefide, downright, on time for this generation. It's FIRE! πŸ’ͺ🏽πŸ’ͺπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½

16 TobyMac (DC Talk, Solo)

Number one in my book. Great music with godly lyrics. I own every album and they are some of the best money ever spent on music. His music has great beats and is encouraging. He was in one of the first Christian rap groups that started the movement (DC Talk). He continues to make great music even with the help of his kids.

6th! TobyMac deserves much better than this position in the list! He is spectacular with his works like Ignition, Jesus Freak (with DC Talk), Atmosphere, Gone, The Slam, Love is in the House etc.

I am just going to say that when it comes to rap, I am not a really big fan. But when it comes to TobyMac (solo) I am a BIG fan. I love TobyMac. Eye on it, Tonight ft. John Cooper from Skillet, Get This Party Started, everything. TobyMac knows how to mix music with Christianity.

This guy is my all-time favorite! Love the music!

Love this guy. He even goes to my church!

In the top five in my humble opinion. He's fluid, scriptural, unique, and exposed as a man. Great skill set and feel for relating to his music and, subsequently, his fans. My favorite.

Very unique and creative

Great rapper, has rapped with lecrae, trip lee, and all those guys. He especially though seems to rap to promote causes.

What is this dude doing at 126. He is surely in the top 25 if not in the top 10 best rappers.

What is he doing down here? A long time veteran of the Christian rap gang

He’s good

21 Viktory

Well all of these are great. Putting them against each other in their skill is very difficult. Viktory is the man and deserves some recognition.

Fast flows and gospel message together is unbeatable. has great talent

Viktory is at least at the top 5 want a overrated list

22 NF NF Nathan "Nate" John Feuerstein, whose stage name is NF, is an American Christian hip hop rapper, singer and musician from Gladwin, Michigan.

I'm not all that into Christian rappers, but NF has been my favorite rapper since I heard one of his songs for the first time. Lyrically, he's a genius. His metaphors are brilliant. His flow is crazy fast. He only writes real lyrics about what he's been through, what he's dealing with, and what he thinks about things. Not only that, but he has an amazing voice. NF is what I like to call a REAL rapper, and there aren't many of those in my book.

I just heard NF "Mansion" a couple weeks ago on Eminem radio on Pandora and I was amazed, and seen as I heard the song "Therapy Session" I lose it I kept listening and looking for more NF songs. I am amazed how he does not swear in any of his songs, and I think that's one of the things I like about NF.

NF is easily the most emotional rapper, not just in the Christian industry, but among all rappers. He is a brilliant writer, and an even more stunning lyricist. It is not an easy choice, because I do enjoy almost every rapper in the top ten, but with beats like these, he should be at the top.

NF is by far the best Christian rapper! He has message and he has method! - ChaelDwyer

23 Propaganda

Probably the best lyricist on this list. The concepts of his songs are original and thought-provoking and his words are often very poetic. He's the type of artist who deserves a wider audience, but is too challenging to appeal to a mass audience. It's unfortunate, but I'm glad someone is making music like this.

He's a good fast rapper that's real and he's a good man of god

Very rooted in the word and outspoken. Overall a great rapper

Prop is legit.

This guy is really good. I kind of now him. Because I have him on FaceBook. He is an excellent rapper and his beats are great. God Bless.

He is a person who has went through a lot growing up. He manages to get to know Jesus. He has an amazing voice. He is an amazing rs

Reconcile must be at the top 10... because his voice, lyrics and beat are deep and amazing...

25 Swoope

One of the best lyricist out there his songs are so meaningful

Great flow. Reminds me of Kanye in the song "Imagine" by his group W.L.A.K.

Wonderful poets, and rappers, and have one of the most unique sounds in Christian Hip-Hop

These dudes are so creative with their music, it's awesome! In my opinion they should definitely be ranked higher than 23

This is a great group. Braille, Odd Thomas & the other guy are awesome together. My favorite song is Anchors. God Bless.

This group got me started with Christian rap

30 Seven

I just want to say 7 belongs in the top 5 he's an awesome rapper his words truly penetrate the heart I get where he's coming from his music's not for everyone just for those that can relate to his story but he's definitely number two to me

Sevin is definitely the best. His whole approach is apocalyptic that creates this urgency to come to Christ NOW, read the bible NOW, go to church NOW. He is very impacting and dissects the word in a very simplified way that anybody could understand.

Realist I ever heard

Many great artists on this list. However, Sevin is THE BEST CHRISTIAN LYRICIST out there! Period..

31 Capital Kings Capital Kings Capital Kings is an American pop, electronic and Christian pop act currently consisting of producer and rapper Cole Walowac.

I really enjoy Capital Kings! They're less of a rap group, and more hip hop/pop, similar to Group One Crew's style. Definitely one of favorite up and coming groups. Excited to see new works from them.

Again, I have nothing against these guys, but they deserve to be on a different list, because they aren't really rap.

Saw them at Winter Jam 2013 and loved them instantly.

Just love this group, their music is fresh and suitable for all ages

32 Corey Paul

He is not known well but his rhymes are sick and he glorifies God.

Corey Paul is definitely one of the best in my opinion.

33 Aaron Cole

How is he not too five? Heck, he ain’t even on the list lol. He has amazing flow and great lyricism. And he has a good singing voice. Most underrated rapper of 2017 - dbonthetrack

34 Puntin

He is the best doing it plan and simple wonderful man of God

One of the most talented, genuine and consistent artists I know. Grinds hard and he wants to see others be great. A true leader! Plus he cold on the mic and the production!

Everything Puntin puts out is fire! Can't wait for Bananas 4

Unique sound and quality lyrics that you wouldn't mind riding to

Listen to this dude's song and take a look at his lyrics true and touching he makes one to feel like rapping for Jesus is not just a rap But true conviction in Christ alone. His guy is supposed to be higher he expressed the words in the Bible of which people can hear and prompt to use his message

Is an excellent rapper. Ad this guy brings his own rap style to represent Jesus. And he has some great songs like Changed Hearts, Resurrect Me & Keep On. And ya'll should check out Braille vs Serge Rap Battle on Rapzilla. And God Bless.

39 5ive

5ive shares the true gospel and even if there is 10 people in the audience or thousand he will go hard on his music because he speaks from the heart and he wants to save souls! Its not about the performance to him he is truly praising GOD every time he gets on that stage!

Wow! 5ive is unashamed of the gospel! My favorite rapper ever! Thanks for sharing Jesus! And he's a pretty awesome husband as well! -5ive's wife

Love this, my boy Craig goes hard in addition too walk the walk off stage as well! Looking forward to seeing what's in store for him! Blessings! Step

40 Eshon Burgundy

I'd like to hear more CCHP artists like Eshon. I'm surprised he isn't higher on this list. His style is a bit smoother than other rappers on this list, which I like. Some of his tracks have a jazz influence. His music has high finesse and perhaps a bit lower adrenaline than other artists. His music is for reflective types like me who like to sit and meditate on music.

41 Fluent Sound

Gotta check these guys out. Heard them through sound cloud and they are amazing!

Good Christian rapper out of Minnesota, these guys got bomb flow and can really deliver the message.

They will dominate the Christian hip hop world. Maybe even the real hip hop world.

They should be way lower

43 Var-G

Var-G speaks wisdom and knowledge in his music its not just about his beats its about life experience and mostly about God. He is a very gifted person and passionate when it comes down to family and all kids, he want the best for them. I can go on but there's not enough time or space. I love his music its brings life to people.

Var G is a very inspirational person, I just love his music and his talent. I wish that God continue to bless him thru it all. He is always sending a message of what a person need to keep piece in his or her on life amen.

Never really listened to Christian rap until I heard Var-G music and now I'm all ears. God Is Great. A devoted God fearing family man who's full of inspiration

Good luck Var, you deserve it.

Most people know this guy just from his verse on Derek Minor's Dear Mr. Christian, but not only has Dee-1 been in the game since 2004, he has over 10 projects, so you can't really complain about this guy not having much stuff out.

Saw him live. Really hype with a good message and knows the game of people who struggled.

He should be in the top ten
