In the last few weeks, Lecrae has been on an interview blitz with stops on the Breakfast Club, Hot 97, Sway in the Morning, and more, but his latest appearance on the Wade-O radio show became a place to explain some of the unintentional stirred up controversy in the last few weeks.
The first topic at hand was the video Datin dropped that took issue with how he felt Lecrae was standing up for Christian Hip-Hop. (Read about that and watch the video HERE).
“Shout out to Datin for the way he did that. That was maturity, that was godliness. That’s the way you handle discrepancies and disagreements,” he said first.
Lecrae spoke about how KB is the most “CHH artist” out there, and said it “doesn’t make sense” for him to be against it. Lecrae at the moment he was answering the question regarding that particular kind of person addressed.
He said he doesn’t consider himself a Christian artist and that’s more of a “philosophical” thing that he breaks down in his book. However, it doesn’t mean he forgot where he came from and that he doesn’t support.
Lecrae shouted out the next wave of Christian Hip-Hop, name dropping nobigdyl., Ty Brasel, Surf Gvng, and Canon. “It’s dope to realize you’ve influenced people in a positive way.”
“I believe some people make music for the church, and some people make music from the church to the world… For me, I don’t want to exclusively for the church…if that’s you, then do it, and do it to the best of your ability,” he said.
