Although he might not care for the label personally, Lecrae will forever be considered a “Christian rapper” in many minds. As pigeonholing as it may be, that’s just how it is.
Does that mean the Houston native can’t rap? Heck no! One listen to his “5 Fingers of Death” freestyle on Sway in the Morning is enough to kill any doubt. Does that mean he can’t sell records? No again, as he’s on pace to have the #1 album in the country this week with his new album Anomaly. (Or is Jhené Aiko gonna make some moves?)
However you choose to describe Lecrae is up to you, but the man’s got talent. If you need a reminder or you’re new to the music, Anomaly can be heard in it’s entirely below. Press play, take it in, and if you like what you hear, contribute to Lecrae’s race to the top by copping it on iTunes.
