Lecrae is a rapper I like and I don't do rap...

I like Lecrae. Just tuned in to him this year. He is focused, relentless, and a Christian. I think he is on message, helpful, talented and is meeting folks where they are, and from where he came from. Great artist, and a good man.

Here is as good a sample song, timely with the riots and the rot.

Nuthin Lyric video. Any fans old or new??

Sounds like something a 10 year old christian boy would listen to because his mommy doesn't let him listen to real music.

I'm a near 50 year old fan of lots of music, but Lecrae I find authentic.

Try this song of humility. His whole composition is excellent. Good stuff.

Listen to Background for a softer beat:

Saw Lecrae at winter jam in Atlanta last year and liked him a lot. Seems to be a positive artist which is rare these days. He and the 116 posse are pretty amazing rappers

Rapping about non-thug life things isn't some new premise for rap. People have been doing it for a long time, they just don't seem to make it big. I'm a fan of hopsin. I don't necessarily agree with all of his views, but he doesn't talk about money drugs and women. Not all of his music is great, but if you want to hear some good ones...start with the "ill mind of hopsin" tracks.

Out of the gate, not a fan of rap, but my wife and kids love Lecrae's music and it is ok for me...but when nobody is around I crank up some KJ52! The guy is a genius.

I have dug some of his stuff.. not all of it, but I am amazed at some of the cross over hits he has had. My kid brother (he's almost 30) was raised on hard core and some nasty rap and is really digging him. I'll take that.

So "real music" is identified as music that kids shouldn't be able to listen to?

Maybe, just maybe, there are some people who don't feel the need to listen to the same stuff you do.
