    Have You Heard Lecrae’s Latest Album “Gravity” Yet?!

    Lecrae just released his sixth album, “Gravity,” on September 4! Lecrae is one of the top Christian rappers of our generation and has reached many souls, including secular artists such as Eminem. Lecrae was nominated for a Grammy in 2011 and has toured and ministered all over the world. His unique raps and lyrics have impacted not only the Christian world, but also the secular and worldly market.

    Lecrae collaborated with several different artists on the album, such as Big K.R.I.T., DJ Premier, Swoope, Mathai and Sho Baraka. The rapper released a free mixtape called “Church Clothes” earlier this year, which was successful and had many talking about the different subjects Lecrae spoke about. He wanted to reach an unchurched audience and explain what he stands for.

    Lecrae recently was interviewed by the Christian Post about the purpose and message behind his latest album. He said,

    My goal with the album was to be consistent in terms of quality music. I know that my Christian fan-base typically has appreciated what I’ve done artistically over a period of time. I just really wanted to make good art, and talk about issues I think everyone can relate to and hopefully provide some different solutions, hope and inspiration. [I wanted to] allow people to see that God has really given me a whole different perspective (The Christian Post).

    Lecrae, along with some other artists like Tedashii and PRo, will be participating in the Unashamed Tour 2012: Come Alive beginning in Pennsylvania on October 4. The artists will headline a national tour in approximately 30 cities.

    Check out some of the lyrics from Lecrae’s new song “Free From It All”:

    Life is a cage, a prison of everyone’s approval
    Fight for acceptance and struggle so you don’t ever lose it
    But livin’ for their acceptance has got us stressing
    Insecure people obsessed with leaving impressions
    Ladies spending time on their faces painting pretty lines
    To you and me its makeup, but to her, it’s a disguise
    You look her in her eyes and see her soul cry
    ‘Cause living for other people’s got her living a lie
    Hadn’t slept in day, close his eyes and he pray
    Someone would miss him if he fell like a star out of space
    But I’m sure they’ll replace him, just a name and a face
    They say they love you, but it’s easy to fall from their graces
    Live for everyone else gotcha losin’ yourself
    Why be slave when made to be free from the guilt?
    To be free from the shame, you are more than a name
    If you go down you got the freedom to get up again. 

    CBS news also reported:

    One of the best songs on the 15-track album is the DJ Khalil-produced ‘Mayday,’ featuring rapper Big K.R.I.T. and 2011 American Idol contestant Ashthon Jones. Big K.R.I.T. is impressive on the soulful song, and Lecrae insightfully raps with substance: ‘Now I found true religion and it’s not inside no denim/and the overpriced shades will never give you vision.’

    Listen to “Confe$$ions,” about how achieving riches isn’t all it’s built up to be.

    What’s your favorite song off the new album? Some of my favorites are “Power Trip,” “Confe$$ions” and “Lucky Ones.”

    Girls, are you a fan of Lecrae?

    1. I NEED to get this album!!!! I have his album REHAB: THE OVERDOSE and loved his song “Strung Out.” It was really touching and fit me perfectly after I went through a really bad relationship and made some stupid choices. I love the way his newest album sounds so far!!

      The coolest part of GRAVITY is that it went number one over all the other rap albums and other artists!! God’s doing big things through Lecrae!!!
