5 New Hip Hop Songs J.Rob The Chief


5 New Hip-Hop Songs That You Should Listen To If You’re An MMA Fan

Feb.8th,2022| Staff


It’s a new week, which means there are new hip-hop songs to check out! This week, our music team has curated 5 new songs in hip-hop that includes some of the most exciting up-and-coming rappers from around the MMA community-artists known for making hype music about the winning mindset and who have seen their walkout songs used by rising UFC stars like “Suga” Sean O’Malley.

Samm Henshaw feat (Tobe Nwigwe) – “Take Time”

Whether you use music to get hype or to wind down to, “Take Time” is a breezy new single from Samm Henshaw featuring Tobe Nwigwe, that is a soothing fusion of hip-hop, gospel, and old-school R&B, making it the perfect recovery song to chill out to thanks to Samm Henshaw’s soulful vibes and Tobe’s sing-song rapping chops.

Nwigwe started to gain a lot of listener attention during the first Covid lockdown. His music has already been featured on Billboard on the Hot 100, plus he’s a huge fight fan who loves to box. If you heard his last song, then you already know that Tobe “throws hands” and brings that “big daddy energy” with his protective lyrical content about his wife and children. It’s a pleasant surprise to hear Nwigwe teamed up with a soulful gospel crooner like Samm Henshaw to show out with one of the best slow jam “recovery” jams of 2022 so far.

J.Rob The Chief – “Let Go”

Here we have another new (ish) song that is worthy of more mainstream attention. J.Rob The Chief is a well-known, local hip-hop artist from the Phoenix area who has written walkout songs for UFC phenom Sean O’Malley (Suga).

The new song, “Let Go” was released on Jan.22 from his new album “This Was An Accident”, and is the second single to be officially released. It’s a catchy pop rap love song that blends sweet lyrics about a man who has his woman’s back and loves her to the moon, that is peppered with Flamenco guitar runs that serve as catchy pop melodies, and bars that bounce along playfully and bang hard at the exact right moment. Nonetheless, listening to “Let Go” is probably going to leave you wanting to listen to more of J.Rob The Chief’s music. Do so. We fully support this young man and his embracement by the MMA community.

116 feat (Wande, GAWVI, 1kPhew, Trip Lee) – “Represent II”

This new track from a collective of rising new hip-hop artists on Lecrae’s 116 label, is a turnt-up version of Lecrae’s “Represent” featuring Tedashii, originally released on Lecrae’s 2004 debut album. Lecrae has proven to be not only a legend in the gospel rap genre but also a tastemaker with his choice of artist signings. 116 is a collection of some of the best artists in the gospel rap and hip hop game right now and that happen to be the new faces on his own Reach records label.

Apex Frazier feat (Xay Hill, ZDIORX) – “Godfidence”

This new track from relatively unknown Gospel rap artist Apex Frazier is a funky, bass-heavy anthem that will have you nodding your head along in no time. This time Apex Frazier leveled up with rising hardships-turned-into-testimony, Ohio rapper, Xay Hill. Hill describes his contribution as “vibey and soulful with a testimony of hardships, making new friends, gangs, being the outsider and a whole lot of doubt”. However, that’s not definitely on display in this new song. It’s a hard-hitting and forward driving Hip-Hop banger about overcoming everything with God-like confidence.


Kairo feat (Sha’Ki, Justalyricist) – “Battle Me”

This new song from LA producer, Kairo, is a brooding and potent track that will have you nodding your head within the first 20 seconds. Kairo collaborated with fellow upcoming LA artists Sha’ki and Justalyricist to bring this banger to life.

All three artists have had their music used by the NBA and are known for their “champion mindset” lyrical styles.. with Kairo being best known for his production work on Godzilla King of Monsters, Mountain Dew’s 3- Point Contest, and much more. “Battle Me” fuses elements of Hip-Hop, Electro, and Rock with hard-driving beats and bars that chant, “If you think you’re better, then battle me!” over and over again to create a hype track and a war cry that is all his own.

As Dana White famously says, “If you don’t know, now you know!” Those are our new music picks for this week if you think we missed a song, let us know in the comments below!
