Holy Hip Hop: Canton Jones

With the type of music that has been mainstream in the past couple of years, many people wouldn't think that this particular song is gospel. A lot of people tend to think that gospel music is boring, has to be slow, or the artist is shouting on the record praising the Lord. Well Canton Jones' type of music is breaking barriers. Although he has been on the music scene for quite some time, this record stood out to me because of what it stands for.

Now don't get me wrong, there's a lot of gospel heavy hitters that has been in the game for countless amount of years, such as the one and only Kirk Franklin, Mary Mary, Smokie Norful and my personal favorite Marvin Saap, but Canton Jones uses his youth as a factor in his music by making it more relevant to today's generation. This song 'Window Over Your Head' is from his latest album 'Dominionaire' which was released Febuary 1st of this year.

Press play and hear for yourself.
