One of the world’s biggest music festivals, South by Southwest (SXSW), just wrapped. Gospel rapper Lecrae was there and performed with Trip Lee. While he was in Austin, allhiphop.com, one of the best-read rap websites, did a brief interview with him. Lecrae has had a pretty wild year, which included recent praise from legendary southern rapper Bun B.
If you missed it, Lecrae did a rap at the BET awards a few months back. He participated in a “cipher,” a kind of freestyle session, with a bunch of other up-and-coming rappers. Watch the video; it’s hard to deny his talent, and the way he boldly witnesses for Christ is inspiring.
