With five studio albums under his belt, LeCrae is still guilty…of wanting more. More of Christ! The Gospel Hip-Hop artist from Houston, TX is passionate about using his music to help people change the way they see the world. “I see myself as an activist for God and I want others to see the world from His point of view too. For me there’s worship in every aspect of my life,” says LeCrae.
While growing up, Hip-Hop culture played a prominent role in the life of this now Christian rapper. But like many of us, LeCrae’s life changed after an encounter with God and he’s been on fire for Him ever since. Where he once rapped about day-to-day stories of street life, his lyrics are now testimonial and enable him to share the good news of Jesus. “I think when young folk see me and hear my testimony, they get excited to have someone that understands where they’re coming from and has been through similar issues,” says LeCrae. “I like using my life to show them that I’m still trying to grow and learn and I think that resonates with them.”
His latest project, “Overdose” is currently topping the Gospel and Christian charts and his fourth album “Rehab” was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Rock or Rap Gospel Album category. LeCrae also finds time to lend his gifts, talents and time to his own record label, humanitarian efforts and missions work. “My passion and desire is to see that people are helped and encouraged and redeemed by the gospel,” says LeCrae. “I see my music as a soundtrack for a movement. A movement for a global culture that connects people to live as Jesus has called us to.”
