A few weeks ago, we made a post asking what your dream Christian Rap collaborations would be. We got some great suggestions in our comments, so we wanted to share some of them. So here are 10 Christian Rap artists collaborations we want, but may never see. The list below is not in any particular order.

10. Lecrae and Kanye West
As soon as people listened through Kanye’s JESUS IS KING, most people wanted this collab. Who wouldn’t want to see the biggest artist in CHH and one of the biggest artists in the world do a song together? We do know that Kanye and Lecrae have interacted multiple times, so the connection is there. However, it’s been almost three years since JESUS IS KING dropped, and nothing so far. We can only hope at this point.
9. Andy Mineo and KJ-52
While these two’s careers look different, they have some similarities. First, they are both white Italian-Americans (KJ is technically Sicilian). Second, they both like to include some humor in their music. Third, at some point in their careers, they have been called the CHH version of Eminem. So, I’m sure they could find some commonalities so they can collaborate.
Having the Reach Record veteran and the indie tribe. member hop on the same track would be a banger based possibly on a few dynamics. Both these rappers have a relatively higher-pitched rap voice. They came onto the scene at two different times in CHH. Lee rose in popularity back in the late 2000s, and Keith is now hitting his highest peak in 2021. The two would rap differently while having a similar voice, so having both on the same track could be an interesting dynamic.
Tobe and Fern both represent older styles of Hip-Hop. Tobe spits straight fire and bars which is why legends such as Black Thought have supported him. With his bars, he backs them up with amazing levels of producing and mixing. Fern can spit bars as well, but his flow and style are more similar to Cam’ron. In other words, Fern has the ability to rap over a beat however he sees fit while seemingly ignoring how the beat is structured, and the song somehow still sounds great. Suffice it to say, a collab between these two rappers could be a time machine back to the past.
Need I say more? NF gets the Eminem comparison all the time. NF’s rise to fame has only magnified the conversations between listeners about how these two just need to get together for at least a song. While it may never happen since Eminem doesn’t usually work with people he disses on a record, we can dream, right?
Another old-school and new-school match-up, these two could make a fantastic track together because of how different their rap styles are. Bizzle is west coast, 1k Phew is east coast. Bizzle is one of the best bar spitters in our space. Phew is a versatile artist. I think the best song they could make would be to have 1k Phew on the hook with a small verse while Bizzle does what he does best. There are many options since they are such different artists though, so who knows what they would create if they collaborated.
4. KB and Chance the Rapper
People have been dreaming about pairing Chance up with many Christian Rap artists ever since he dropped Coloring Book. Right now though, people have not really mentioned KB and Chance the Rapper for a collaboration. The two do not have much in common. KB is going hard into exploring theology and society, while Chance, while embracing his faith currently, is a newborn relatively. KB is signed to a Sony label imprint, and Chance is working as an indie. Maybe it would be a good collaboration though, crazier things have happened.
3. Andy Mineo and Nic D
We’ve seen Andy work with artists such as Josh Garrels and Mark E. Bassy to create more chill, thought-provoking tracks with string-driven melodies. Those types of vibes are right up Nic D’s alley, so why not have Andy and him on the same track? Nic D is focusing on creating singles and has a knack for creating beats with any type of guitar. Andy’s II: the Sword EP is a great example of how diverse Mineo’s music can be. While it seems their careers are going in two different directions, these two would make a great track.
2. Canon and Jered Sanders
This is a pairing I’ve heard for the first time. Both these underappreciated rappers have elements that could mesh together well. Canon has a faster rap pace and is a fan of spitting quick, while Jered takes his time to deliver his message. Both can spit bars and create compelling music though. While they are going about their business with their careers, a collab could be dope.
1. Wordsplayed and Kanye West
I don’t know the true motive of whoever suggested this idea, I know where my mind goes. Wordsplayed has a song called “Kanye Cares” which sounds exactly how the title reads. Teaming the mainstream superstar with comedian/rapper would perhaps fulfill some unspoken prophesy Wordsplayed wrote into “Kanye Cares.” Based on his previous conversations, Kanye might make a better guest on Wordsplayed’s Circle of Trust than collaborating on a song.
