On Fans' Reactions: 
Lecrae: "My life is different now, from listening to your music." Ya know. That’s huge, when someone comes up to you and says, "I’m not the same." I literally, before I got on the phone, was at a concert hall and the guy that set me up was like, "Yo, I just got out of prison and I was listening to your music heavy when I was locked up and it got me through some tough times." That’s what it’s all about. It’s that type of life transformation why I keep doing what I do.

On Going Against His Faith:
Lecrae: Another common misconception is that we’re perfect people. But we’re not, we’re people who embrace our imperfections. That’s what a Christian is, a person who embraces his imperfections and says, "Man, I am so not perfect and I need to put my trust in someone who is." That’s me, ‘cause I don’t carry myself like I got it all together, I carry myself like I know who does. So all the time, I mess up all the time. But I have a power, a strength and faith to keep me following in what I believe in and get back on track.

Lecrae Is Dropping A New Album In August

Earlier this week, Houston based MC Lecrae announced via Twitter that he is releasing his seventh studio album, Anomaly, in August.

The odds of a rapper who speaks about faith, monogamy and positive human growth forging his legacy in mainstream hip-hop seems rather unlikely, but then again, Lecrae goes entirely against popular culture's opinion of hip-hop. And despite some publications and hip-hop heads painting him into a corner as a "Christian Rapper," the Atlanta-by-way-of-Houston MC isn’t here to teach fans The Bible or to make them believe in any particular truth. Like some of the best MCs of our time—Nas, Jay Z, Scarface or Ghost—'Crae simply wants to paint a picture and tell his story, even if the lens through which he views the world might differ from others.

With a number of noteworthy media appearances and chart-topping LPs, coupled with a critically acclaimed mixtape and a Grammy award under his belt, Lecrae finds himself at work trying to tear apart the box that the world helped place him in, while simultaneously paving inroads for the next atypical lyricist. Who said originality was dead? —Marjua Estevez (@_MsEstevez)
