Ebony Magazine released its annual Power 100 list of inspiring African-Americans this month, and Lecrae joined Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Drake and Lupe Fiasco as one of only a handful of hip-hop artists to be celebrated.


“Gospel music has gone from molasses-dipped spirituals to roof-raising praise anthems and liturgical battle cyphers,” Ebony said. “Still, it was surprising that this year the Gospel Music Association awarded Artist of the Year to a rapper: Houston-born Lecrae. No stranger to making history, Lecrae’s 2014 album, Anomaly, was the first ever to top Billboard’s Gospel Charts and the Top 200 simultaneously.”

Others artists to make the list included Prince, Janet Jackson, John Legend, Janelle Monáe, D’Angelo, Jidenna, Zendaya and Jaden and Willow Smith.
