Lecrae looks to break mold of a Christian rapper
Lecrae is dubbed a Christian rapper, but he considers himself a rapper who happens to be Christian. The Grammy-winning artist is trying to avoid being boxed into one genre. “I didn’t really fit in either world,” said Lecrae, 34. Last month, his seventh album, “Anomaly,” became the first title to top Billboard’s Top 200 and Gospel Albums charts in the same week.
