#142 – Hulvey, Angie Rose, VILLAGE KNG, & More…

Each week, dozens of singles and a handful of projects are released in the Christian Hip-Hop (CHH) and Urban Soul spaces. Below, we listen to a few highlights and list the rest for your own discovery. As always, follow our New Christian Rap & Hip Hop playlist on Spotify and Apple Music to listen to all the latest.

Hulvey – “Used By You”
Reach Records’ artist Hulvey releases his third single of 2023 aside from “Altar” featuring Forrest Frank and “Walk” featuring Lecrae. Also, he was featured on Frank’s highly successful track titled, “No Longer Bound.” This year has been a statement of affirmation for Hulvey, as he’s clearly one of the elite CHH artists. Each of the three aforementioned singles has been featured in the top 20 of Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs chart. 

His first solo song of the year was produced by the multi-talented Lasanna “ACE” Harris and Elkan. “Used By You” is a powerhouse, sonically, as the bass notes knock hard enough to shatter car windows and break the listener’s ear drums. Elements such as the organ and soft harmony throughout combined with the 808s and high hats promote unity between the streets and the pews alike. Hulvey has been masterful since the release of “Beautiful” last July infusing hip-hop and worship soundscapes hoping to achieve a common bond as iconic as peanut butter and jelly. Stream “Used By You” on Apple Music here.
