“Sunday Service” by Hunnid featuring Perry Vee is a mix between church-going hip-hop and definitively secular but still spiritual music. Think Lecrae mixed with a bit of Nipsey. It’s gritty and realistic but it still wants its listeners to learn from it, do better and pray to the Most High.
It’s an unique mix of subgenres. In some ways, it’s too street to be considered straight gospel. In others, it’s potentially not street enough to crank to the max on a Saturday night when sinners become believers. I think that’s why I like it, though. The blends of subgenres give an interesting take on CHH, one that’s as mainstream as one can get without talking about murdering everyone while off Percs or whatever. Yes, I know that’s not (exactly) a thing, but it feels like it is sometimes.
Hunnid and Perry Vee walked the line between secular and spiritual, but didn’t lose their way. While doing so, they also managed to lose their bite, as this one hits you in the chest like a liquor shot. Don’t believe me? Check it out below and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
