Gospel – Rich Chigga’s Back Again
After the rapid-fire fuego that was Dat $tick, Who That Be, Seventeen, and Back At It, Rich Chigga has fired another single into the hip-hop world with Gospel. Featuring on the track are XXXtentacion and Keith Ape, who are both controversial in their own right.
XXXtentacion’s claim to fame was the song Look At Me!, which is easily one of the hardest songs of the year, both musically and lyrically. During the success of this song however, X was sitting in jail, awaiting trial for a variety of crimes, including aggravated and domestic battery. This hasn’t done anything to stop his success though, as his song has racked up 63 million plays on Spotify and 42 million on YouTube.
Keith Ape is a Korean rapper whose song It G Ma propelled him to fame in the K-hip hop scene. He was accused of using black imagery and cultural appropriation to sell records by OG Maco, but has since worked things out with the rapper (by giving him royalty rights lmao).
The song itself features a bass-heavy trap beat with each rapper taking a separate verse, starting with X and rounding out with Rich Chigga. Each rapper stays true to their roots, with XXXtentacion maintaining a harder vibe and Keith Ape rapping in both Korean and English (go killer whales). Overall, a pretty solid track that you should give a listen here.
