Lecrae Moore, known simply as Lecrae, is an American rapper and producer who has become one of the foremost stars in the Christian hip-hop scene. His brash demeanor and southern crunk production is bolstered by his smooth flow about his faith in Jesus Christ. His debut album Real Talk was released in 2004 through Reach Records and re-released by Cross Movement Records the following year, followed by 2006’s After the Music Stops and 2008’s Rebel, which reached number one on the Gospel chart, the first Christian hip-hop album to do so. His fourth solo album Rehab came out in 2010 and topped the Christian, Gospel, and Independent charts, as well as earning a Grammy nomination. 2011 saw the release of Rehab: The Overdose and Lecrae’s performance at the BET Hip Hop Awards Cypher, catching some attention from the mainstream. In 2012, he released his first mixtape, the breakthrough Church Clothes, hosted by DJ Don Cannon and downloaded hundreds of thousands of times that year. He also put out his sixth studio album Gravity, which debuted at number three on the Billboard 200 and took home the Grammy for Best Gospel Album in 2013, the first time that a hip-hop artist has won this award. He is also a member of the rap group 116 Clique, as well as the president of both the independent record label Reach Records and the non-profit organization ReachLife Ministries. In November 2013, he released his second mixtape Church Clothes 2, and early next year, Lecrae will embark on the Winter Jam Tour 2014 with concerts across the United States, wowing ticket buyers with a bill that includes Plumb, Newsboys, Tenth Avenue North, and Thousand Foot Krutch.
