Welcome to the first ever “Wake Up Rap”, a new series of posted rap and hip hop music that will sporadically come out at some point before noon every few days. Whether it’s a song that you can stay in bed and snooze to or one that can motivate you to get up and crush some class,  “Wake Up Raps” are chosen by PtB editors to help you start your day.

First up, “The Alphabet” by Luke Christopher. Keep an eye out for this uber-talented self-made singer/writer/rapper/producer coming out of Los Angeles. “The Alphabet” is a fun and uplifting track where Christopher describes what he’s learned about what it takes to be successful in the music industry.
