Steven Malcolm & Social Club Misfits make Spotify's New Music Friday Christian with "Ain't Playin"
Steven Malcolm connects with Billboard-charting Christian rap duo Social Club Misfits on the brash bop “Ain’t Playin”. Produced by Grammy-Award winners BoogzDaBeast, FNZ, and Dayme, the track is featured on Steven’s forthcoming album Tree dropping on April 15.
Malcolm says, “There’s a saying in Jamaica, “playtime done.” This lyrical sparring session isn’t a joke. The trio delivers world-class flows that reaffirm their prowess as emcees. “The rap game is a competitive sport,” adds Malcolm. With the help of Christian hip-hop dynamic duo Social Club Misfits, Malcolm is bound to claim his crown.

Today’s release was added to Spotify’s New Music Friday Christian playlist HERE, Apple Christian’s Elevate playlist HERE, and Best New Songs chart.

About Steven Malcolm:
Steven Malcolm makes faith-driven hip-hop that's as unique as his multi-cultural background. It's a diverse sound grounded in rap's rhythmic delivery, pop's modern melodies, and God's word, glued together by a street-smart artist whose music has earned five Dove Award nominations and more than 57 million streams.
Released in 2021, All Is True blurs the boundaries between Christian music and larger-than-life hip-hop, delivering universal songs about faith, family, and fidelity. This is hip-hop with a heart, mixing the spirituality of Sunday morning with the energy of Saturday night. It's also an extension of the sound Malcolm has spent the better part of a decade crafting. Raised by a family whose Ja-Jamaican-born patriarch was deported back to the Caribbean when his son was only 10 years old, Malcolm first turned to music as a source of stability. He found success in the hip-hop underground with his independent debut, Monster's Ink, then built a larger audience with 2017's self-titled Steven Malcolm. Nominated for three GMA Dove Awards, Steven Malcolm was followed by The Second City, which debuted at Number 11 on Billboard's hip-hop chart in 2019. Tracks like "Fuego'' highlighted his Jamaican roots and reggae influences (both of which were showcased on a number of remixes, which found Malcolm working alongside collaborators like Shaggy, R3HAB, The SoulBots, and Melanie Pfirrman), while a Dove-nominated remix of "Even Louder" featured his duet with seven-time Grammy nominee Natalie Grant.
