When the Holy Spirit teams up with hip hop, it makes for a dynamic collaboration of Gospel Rap; a process RIFICA refers to as “the Holy Spirit downloading the lyrics to his brain.” This partnership in music attracts all ages of believers and non-believers the same.
“the Holy Spirit downloading the lyrics to his brain.”
I absolutely loved this from the first time I heard it. This track ‘Instagram’ indicates that Christian-oriented music fans no longer need to settle for inferior faith-based hip-hop artists music. It’s a powerful testimony, riveting music and dazzling production.
Instagram: It seemed like it was one of those things that appeared overnight — one day nobody was using it, and the next day everybody was using it…
For maybe the one person who doesn’t know what Instagram is; it is a simple photo editing application that was first available for iPhones and then became available for Droids. RIFCA accurately displays an image of girls in the bathroom mirror, smiling back and taking bootie pics.. (guilty as charged)
Overall, this is an extremely well written track that display’s RIFICA’s abilities as a songwriter and producer, as well as a very fine lyricist. While his music is specifically aimed at inspiring those who share his faith, music is universal and anyone who simply likes listening to well crafted and performed soul, gospel music will find much to enjoy here.
The stereotype was accurate for far too long. After decades of failing to produce a truly worthwhile artist, Christian hip-hop finally has an artist of merit in RIFICA

More about RIFICA
Prior to recording his first album, RIFICA would feature on various artist songs, with his first being with Mic D and Disciples of Prophecy on the DOP 2k3 album. Later, the successful relationship would serve as a positive force of change. After hearing from Mic D, and the industry response to his original name, MastaBalla, it was suggested he choose a different alias. In that moment God brought the name to remembrance and it’s meaning to the acronym RIFICA (Righteous In Faith InCrease Abundantly). This modification would eventually develop RIFICA’s brand and shape him into the artist he is today. Since then Rif , is proud to have worked with artists such as Educator, Immortal, Poetic Prophet, BSloan and Mike Dixon.
When you hear the sounds in his albums, everything from the beat to the lyrics, expect to hear real life applications. From discussing his childhood life of joint custody while growing up on both sides of the track in Houston , TX ; RIFICA’s parents divorced when he was 5 years old. Consequently, he experienced a somewhat unbalanced childhood…..Or it could be described as the perfect balance for what God planned to do in and through his life. These pastimes from his childhood including recaptures of “the college life” in The Motivation album are like stages of fragmented pieces of clay molded by the hands of the Potter.
When looking back RIFICA knows he has come a long way from his very first demo, which involved a recording of himself rapping to a homemade beat made with a karaoke machine, tuba, keyboard, and drum machine recorded on a cassette tape. He makes sure his supporters know that it wasn’t his own doing as he always says “All Glory Go to God None to me”. RIFICA is currently working on his third album “Fresh Manna”. His supporters should expect to receive some fresh artistry on this junior project with several hot collaborations featuring Riley, Rev. Rob, Donovan Charles, Briana Amor and several other anointed artist. RIFICA is truly a young entertainer after God’s own heart, striving to be the standard of righteousness to a generation without a God Consciousness.
RIFICA wants us to always remember the righteous in faith increase abundantly and every Christian is RIFICA because every Christian should be righteous in Faith increasing abundantly …
It’s not about me
