It’s important to make dope art, no matter what genre of music you’re a part of.

It’s equally vital to connect with fans live, minister, and be able to display a quality performance on the music stage. Artists like Kanye West, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, and Chance The Rapper are known for killin their live performances in the mainstream world. At this moment, who are the top live performers in CHH (Christian Hip-Hop)? People will definitely have different opinions on this but after attending CHH concerts and conferences for well over a decade, I thought it would be dope to take a crack at forming a list of the best. Let us begin!

10. Steven Malcolm


4 Against 5 artist, Steven Malcolm, is one of the new faces of CHH. He stays true to the art of hip-hop and gives the people quality show after show. Upcoming show dates HERE.

9. Aaron Cole


19-year-old Aaron Cole recently inked a deal with Gotee Records (Co-founded by TobyMac). There’s a lot of reasons why Cole got the deal (He’s an amazing artist). Aaron Cole is definitely on the rise. Find his tour dates HERE.

8. Gemstones 


Gemstones is a Chicago Hip-Hop legend. He has collaborated with Jay-Z, Lupe Fiasco, and Drake, among others. Stones toured the world as part of Lupe Fiasco’s ‘The Cool’ Tour. Follow the Billboard-charting artist HERE for updates.

7. Canon


Canon wasn’t Lecrae’s hype man years ago for no reason. The Reflection Music Group-artist can flat-out put on an electrifying show. He’s relentless too. After surviving a life-threatening accident in 2014, he continues to travel the world. Tour dates HERE.

6. Derek Minor 


Derek Minor is a vet in the game. Anytime he is live, the fans get a dope event. The RMG-general knows how to move the crowd. On June 22, he dropped his single titled “Of Course.” Tour dates HERE.

5. Andy Mineo


Mineo, one of hip-hop’s brilliant creatives. He cares about the details of a song, merch, cover art, visual, and of course his live shows. Andy Mineo sells out a lot of events. More details on what city he will be in next HERE.

4. Propaganda 


Propaganda is a world-class poet and lyricist. He captivates the audience every time he grabs the microphone. The Humble Beast Records artist dropped his album titled ‘Crooked’ in 2017. Learn about his upcoming shows HERE.

3. KB


KB has top-tier talent. The Tampa, Florida-based hip-hop artist displays the skill of combining high energy that’s creatively controlled, with substance, at his shows. Tour dates HERE. K To The Second Letter just dropped a fire latin trap song called “Long Live The Champion.”   It should be crazy when he performs it.

2. Lecrae


Lecrae, the most successful artist to come straight out of the CHH community. The GRAMMY award-winning artists packs out shows worldwide. Hard to not enjoy a Creezy show. The Lecrae x Andy Mineo ‘Better Late Than Never’ tour has been announced. More details HERE.

1. Da’ T.R.U.T.H.


Da’ T.R.U.T.H. is a CHH legend. He has had some of the best live moments in CHH history. The It’s Complicated-crafter is a master of articulating himself and expressing emotion. He has even toured with Christian music legend Kirk Franklin. Stay updated with his music HERE.

Truthfully, there is a good amount of artists that you can make an argument for, in regard to this list. Sho Baraka, Thi’sl, Social Club Misfits, and NF put on great live shows as well.
