On May 11th, 2017 , Hip hop recording artists Rich Chigga, Keith Ape, and Xxxtentacion dropped their long awaited single ‘Gospel’ produced by RonnyJ. Listen to the track for yourself here.
The song begins with a mellow key ascension aura, but X handles the first verse grabbing your attention almost immediately with his energy. Keith Ape hits you with his bilingual flow in the second verse before Rich Chigga brings in his semi baritone final verse to close out the song. In all the song captures each artists individual style while at the same time creating a good collaborative piece for an energizing take on the new wave of trap beats being innovated by producers like RonnyJ, CaptainCrunchBeats, and Mikey the Magician.

If you are looking for something fun to do with your day head on down to Youth Radio and check out my list of some songs that will make your day.
1. Mick Jenkins – “Pressed For Time” (Ft. Goldlink)
Mick Jenkins has always shown to be a strong rapper. Mix his flow with the slightly annoying but catchy vocals of Goldlink, and you’ve got a hit. Put this song on and whip up a PB&J to start a day right.
2. Smino – “Anita”
If you’re a fan of unique vocal deliveries, Smino’s should be your go-to. And with a beat that sounds like baby blocks in a blender, plus that trademark Monte Booker swing –this song makes for some VERY modern R&B.
3. Calvin Harris- “Slide” (ft. Frank Ocean & Migos)
Well if the lineup wasn’t enough to pull you in, the blend of this track will. Dance with rap flows from some of the kings of modern music. Do yourself a favor and listen in.
4. Steve Lacy – “Dark Red”
If you have no idea who the hell this is, I suggest getting familiar. Like when you give a mouse a cookie, Lacy’s music will leave you with an aggressive addiction for more.
5. Lil Uzi Vert- “XO TOUR Llif3”
We come to the most surprising on this list, from the man who sounds like the Blink-182 version of rap. You can decide if that’s a compliment or not. I’m not necessarily being a fan of Vert, Carti, Kodak, etc. I was genuinely surprised that this lil Uzi song got stuck in my head for the last few days. You’re sure to get up and moving to this song.
Hope you enjoyed, see you around when we come out with another top 5.
1. Little Dragon- High
This song was released February 14th as a return for Little Dragon. This track was a super dope comeback after a good 3 years since “Nabuma Rubberband”.
