Steven Malcolm makes faith-driven hip-hop that's as unique as his multi-cultural background. It's a sound grounded in rap's rhythmic delivery, pop's modern melodies, and God's word, glued together by a diverse artist whose music has earned five Dove Award nominations and more than 44 million streams.
Raised by a family whose Jamaican-born patriarch was deported back to the Caribbean when his son was 10 years old, Malcolm turned to music for a source of stability. He found success in the hip-hop underground with his independently debut, Monster's Ink, then signed a deal with Word Entertainment. As the first rap artist on the label's roster, he introduced his sound to a wider audience with the self-titled Steven Malcolm — whose hit songs combined elements of trap, boom bap, South Atlanta hip-hop, and modern pop — its 2019 follow-up, The Second City, which debuted at Number 11 on Billboard's hip-hop chart. Tracks like "Fuego" highlighted his Jamaican roots and reggae influences (both of which were showcased again in 2020, when Malcolm teamed up with Shaggy for the larger-than-life "Fuego Remix"), while a Dove-nominated remix of "Even Louder" found him duetting with seven-time Grammy nominee Natalie Grant.
Released in 2021, "Glory On Me" finds Steven Malcolm beginning yet another chapter of his singular career. The song blurs the boundaries between Christian music and hip-hop, delivering timely messages of faith, optimism, and redemption along the way. This is hip-hop music with a heart, mixing the spirituality of Sunday morning with the energy of Saturday night.
