Hope Dealers drop ‘Fire In The Booth’ freestyle

Balaclavas, a group of men and a drill instrumental – your average South London drill collective? However, the Hope Dealers are not in fact your average drill collective, these guys are one way of solving the sudden increase of knife crime within the UK, in a holy way.

The Hope Dealers are rapidly rising within the UK music scene and have recently showcased their first ever Fire In The Booth with DJ Charlie Sloth on BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra.

From gaining recognition from BBC 1 XTRA’s latest documentary ‘Gangs, drill and prayer’, we can see how young Christians are changing their life and using contemporary music genres like rap, grime and drill to lure people in to leaving the gang lifestyle and changing for the better.

Throughout the documentary, we are exposed to a number of young individuals making a positive difference to their life and surroundings. The Hope Dealers in particular played a significant role as they are traditionally performing their drill music in balaclavas – but this time… in church.

Lyrics that describe the concept behind their look consist of: “Still got my bally in church, these Christians still wanna talk about dress code. Designer joints when I worship, I really been out here praying in Kenzo”.

With additional flow and raw talent, watch the new drop above!
