Top 10 Best Christian Rappers

The Top Ten
1 Lecrae Lecrae Devaughn Moore, mononymously known as Lecrae, is an American Christian hip hop artist, songwriter, record producer and actor. He is also the co-founder of reach records.

I just did five years in prison for sales. I started using at 14 and had a needle in my arm by early 15. I tried so hard to stay clean, on and off, for so many years. Now, I am free both in spirit (John 10:10) and physically, walking in the free world. The King, my Savior Jesus, brought my brother Lecrae's Rehab CD to me in a dark season of my life. What is a goon to the Godhead? Amen!

Jesus, bless my brother in Christ, Lecrae, in a greater measure this year. Continually take over his shows to seek and save the lost, hurting, and broken. God bless every single one who throws up 116. Jesus is risen!

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

Man, NF just doesn't stop. He's like hard-hitting and keeps getting better. He talks about stuff that kids, especially, but also us grown-up kids with baggage need to hear. I don't compare him to Eminem myself. You really can't throw secular rappers and Christian or clean rappers together. I think it's not fair because of exposure and the market, etc. NF has what it takes for sure. He really just keeps getting better with every new song I hear.

NF should be number one. He is someone that you can relate to, and you don't have to feel alone. Some people say his music is too intense, but I love how he expresses all of his emotions and feelings into his songs. NF makes my day. He puts so much thought and effort into his music.

I love all his songs: Hope, Let You Down, Bullet, Happy, Time, Therapy Session, Cloud, and so many more. Just listening to his music can liven up your day. I listen to it in my room, in the car, at restaurants, anywhere I can. And he has so many songs to listen to. By far, he's my favorite rapper!

3 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.

One of my personal favorites here. Andy is fun, lighthearted, and has a great time with his songs. He can also hold his own in rapping and has consistently great lyrics. I mean, he can really spit fire in a way you don't necessarily associate with him, and he does a great show too. He is a great Christian guy for sure, and it comes through in his music how much he loves God and his fans.

I honestly don't understand why Andy Mineo isn't at the top. From his lyrics to his producing, to his influence, he belongs at the top. Not just barely at the top, but leaps and bounds above everybody else on this list. The only person who can really even think about holding a stick to Andy Mineo is Lecrae, but even then, it's a stretch.

4 KB

KB just brings it all together. With his signature K to the second letter, and the rapper that's reverent, when you hear him come in on a song you know it's gonna get good or better. He really delivers with great flow and solid lyrics, 100%.

This guy is one of my favorite Christian Rappers. KB (Kevin Burgess) puts his own spin on his rap style. And the 116 Clique is an amazing Christian group also. Some of my favorite KB songs are Open Battlefield, Heart Song, and Hello on his first album: Weight and Glory. And I like I Believe because I am a fan of For Today. God bless.

5 Flame

I have been listening to these Christian artists for a long time, and many of them speak about their feelings and address things that are happening in our society. Secular music also speaks on these issues, which is common sense to worldly views that we all can relate to. The unbelievers already know half of the rhymes, so us true Christians can clearly see the big difference between secular and Christian music.

But see, Flame doesn't approach us with that kind of mindset. Hands down, he is one of the true Christian rappers out there. His message in his songs relates to the biblical truth. Flame even teaches you directly in his song "Context" from the album "Rewind", about how you can dig a little deeper into scriptures to achieve spiritual growth from within. His albums "Captured" and "Forward" get really deep, and they make you think about which path a truly lost person needs to take in order to survive in this cruel world.

A lot of these Christian artists used to focus so much on biblical truth, and I'm starting to see a change in music. It's becoming more about feelings than anything else nowadays.

Flame is screaming Jesus all the way, all the way, all the way!

6 Trip Lee

Trip is definitely the best, then Lecrae, then Tedashii, then Andy Mineo. Have you heard any of his songs? All of you who made him be third instead of first have to listen to his songs. He is the number one person in my life that I look up to. I'm a rapper myself, known as KJ-49, not KJ-52. You may not know me because I'm just getting started, but anyway, he is the best in voice, lyrics, religion, preaching, and everyday life. If I had a choice to have a million dollars or be best friends with Trip Lee, I would choose to be best friends. I hope you vote up for him because he deserves it. Please.

7 Tedashii

Tedashii was pretty bad in all his early albums. They're flat, not really a chorus, and hardly any beat. But Below Paradise was PRIME, it is stacked with platinum songs. That's why he's right where I think he should be: #5. (And KB, Trip Lee, and Mineo are easily better than him.)

Obviously, all of the mentioned artists are amazing, but Tedashii brings something so unflinchingly powerful and hard-hitting that it's like a ghetto-gangsta rap artist firing pure 'Holy Spirit filled' rounds!

He is easily one of the most powerful rap artists out there.
Check out "I'm a Believer," "WAR," and others!

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 has 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.

9 Derek Minor

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

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

Ever since Dear Mr. Christian hit, I have been a huge Derek Minor fan. His words are so deep you can feel them.

10 Bizzle

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!

The Contenders
11 Black Knight

Honestly, he works tirelessly, creating his own beats and beats for other artists, while still having time to craft great lines for himself.

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

It's the Black Knight! Enough said.

12 Thi'sl

Bizzle's story is among the most impactful stories I have ever heard in my life about 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 a 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. Thi'sl is more than just a rapper. He is physically going into the hood and streets, 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

13 TobyMac

Wow! Why is the trailblazer for Christian Rap so low? His lyrics are true Christian. He has dominated the charts since the late 80s! He has managed to do it both with a band and solo. Mac has also managed to make those who do and don't like rap enjoy his music. He is an owner of a record company. Lecrae and these other guys are great, but they haven't dominated the charts like TMac has. I mean, really, 30 years of changing with the culture and making great new music.

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.

14 Canton Jones

Canton Jones is definitely one of the chosen ones. His message is clear and dominating, but in the right way. As a man, he is a good leader and role model. He also is, or was, a Pastor, similar to Andy Mineo.

Thank you, Jesus, for these talented men doing your works. Shout out to Lecrae. My kids love you all!

Oh heck yeah! Canton Jones is great. He needs to be higher on the list.

This is too low! This guy is awesome and anointed!

15 KJ-52

It's almost as good as Eminem, but without vulgarity... Honestly, I like Em, but finding the Christian equivalent is fantastic.

Best Christian rapper I've ever seen! This guy is the best for meaningful, fun, and serious music. All of his albums are awesome! #KJ52

He is just an icon of Christian rap. He was one of the first to break into the genre and stay popular.

16 Json

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.

Love this guy. He even goes to my church!

You are good, bro. I like Parent Me.

17 Seckond Chaynce

I just wish everyone knew about this guy. He's amazing. I heard he did some stuff with Lecrae and 116, but I can't find anything about it. If he did, I can see why he split off because he is like his own genre. His country makes you want to jump in a pickup truck and go fishing with your sweetheart, but he raps with the best of them.

His Rap Devil song is like, Whoa, why isn't this guy more well known? But I get it, rap fans are not really country fans, and usually, at least, vice versa. So, if you are into his rap and look him up and get a bunch of country, it might turn you off. I wish he would get more publicity, though. He really could be higher on this list, I feel for sure. He's a great artist.

19 Skrip

Skrip is one of the most versatile, underrated, and thought-provoking rappers and producers alive. Not to mention, he can move the crowds, a true gem at his craft. Don't sleep on Skrip. Listen to Becoming All Things, Underscore 1 & 2, Show and Tell, Renegades Never Die, and others.

20 Datin
21 Bryann Trejo

This guy keeps it so real. His music speaks to the streets and sinners that are running from God when they need him most. He doesn't mind giving God true praise through his lyrics either. B.T. definitely needs to be higher on this list.

I'm shocked that Kingdom Music isn't on this list. Bryann Trejo and Keith Wallace bring another level of real.

Bryann T speaks the truth every time he is on the mic, and his preaching and ministry are all fire and spot on.

22 YB

His songs "Fire Emoji" and "Coachella" are my two favorites, but he definitely has many other good ones. Just listen to them.

23 1k Phew

1k Phew should be way higher up on the list. He has a unique voice, amazing melodies, great bars, and a great flow. He has a newer style than someone like Andy Mineo or Lecrae, and I love it.

24 Hollyn Holly Marie Miller, who goes by the stage name Hollyn, is a mixture of Pop, R&B, and a Singer and Songwriter of Christian music.

She's super cool. She mostly sings, but she raps in about half of her songs, especially the more recent ones. She's also very progressive and accepting of everyone, which is just amazing.

I love Hollyn, and she is the best!

25 Da' T.R.U.T.H.

His lyrics are pure truth. He has a special flow yet is straightforward. I love Death Of Silence and Hunger Games.

Other than LeCrae, all these guys, as good as they are, don't really have the resume to earn top billing.

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