CBN News anchor Efrem Graham interviewed Christian rapper Lecrae on Monday and asked his opinion about several trending topics.
Lecrae said he supports Kirk Franklin’s boycott of the Dove Awards after the Gospel Music Association edited his speech following the ceremony.
Franklin’s acceptance speech included a comment on racial injustice, which was removed during the award’s ceremony on Oct. 15. His call to prayer referenced the death of Atatiana Jefferson, a black woman who was shot and killed in her home Texas, on Oct. 12 by a white police officer.
“It was a shock to the system. It demonstrated that there are certain voices and issues that I believe God cares about and for some reason are muted. That’s something we can’t stand for,” Lecrae said.
“We have freedom of speech in this country and freedom to address things. What better platform than a Christian platform to bring up a call to prayer for issues in our society that need prayer. That’s what made me say I’m out as well.”
