Sheldon Man Releases Full-Length Hip-Hop Album

Sheldon, Iowa — A Sheldon man has released a full-length hip-hop album.

After years of teasing a full-length LP, Lee “Stovetop” Stover, one of Northwest Iowa’s most prominent voices in the Christian hip-hop scene, has released his debut album, “Work in Progress.”

Stover tells us about it.

He says not only can you buy and download the album from online sources, but old-school discs are also on the way.

Stover says “Work in Progress” is the culmination of his desire to spread not only his music to the masses, but to promote positivity and spirituality as well.

Stover says he built his following through his SoundCloud account, which has accumulated more than 150,000 streams.

Over the 38-minute runtime, “Stovetop” encourages people to live their life to the fullest (“Bananas”), explains how to have fun on the dance floor without being provocative (“Feet Work”), never giving up (“Fighter”), rallying against secular materialism (“A.I.”), and more.

Dropping a complete project has been a long-time coming for Stovetop, who has released several EPs and mixtapes over the years including, “The Experiment Mixtape” (2011), “The Prequel” (2011), “Tunes (2013), and “It’s All True: The h* Tracks” (2013).

“Work in Progress” can be streamed or digitally downloaded on Apple Music/iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, YouTube and physical copies can be purchased at

“Stovetop” made his comments during the KIWA Morning Show with Wayne and Aaron this week.
