Lecrae Moore is known simply as Lecrae to his music fans around the world. And the Christian rap artist continues to take the entertainment industry by storm.
His latest project, Anomaly, broke records on sacred and secular music charts not long after its release. It’s the first album to ever land simultaneously at the top of the Billboard and gospel music charts.
Outcasts for Christ
“The concept of the album is embracing the fact that you are different,” Lecrae said in a recent interview with CBN News. “So, in many ways you are going to be an outcast, which is, by nature alone, saying I stand with Jesus has already ostracized you from a lot of people.”
The husband and father of three often describes himself as “something that doesn’t quite fit.” He is a humble, hip-hop artist whose music doesn’t glorify sex, drugs or violence – and he’s an outspoken Christian. That isn’t typically a recipe for success in the rap game.
“It’s an anomaly. It sounds cliché and it sounds trite but it is very obvious that it is God’s handiwork,” Lecrae said of his sucess.
“It’s very obvious that he is showing off and saying, ‘Hey, this independent guy, many of you don’t know, who loves me, is right here,” he continued. “How did it happen? Nobody knows. But I did it. It is kind of like, ahaa. It’s like Gideon, only 300 people, how did he win? I did it’.”
