Style: Southern rap; compare to Mos Def, Ludacris, Lil Jon
Top tracks: "Fresh," "Neverland," "New Life"
Industry mainstay GRITS is back with their fourteenth release—also rumored to be their last. On this infectious party soundtrack, the duo once again provides signature club bangers without compromising Christ. Nods to pop culture with song titles like "O.M.G." and references to "bringing sexy back with Justin" blend effortlessly with uplifting messages about second chances and living as salt and light in the world. And the group's studio genius is still strong, evidenced by tracks like "New Life," featuring the magnetic Annie Williams. With lyrical finesse and perfect flow, Coffee and Bonafide continue to set the standard for faith-based hip-hop.
