Background – Lecrae

One of the aspects of the Reformed resurgence in my generation has been the development of gospel-centered hip-hop and lyrical theology.  The most influential of these artists is Lecrae, whose new album has been in the top 10 of all iTunes albums since its release last week (quite impressive).  Below is an impromptu music video made in NYC for “Background”.

Another video that blew me away was a 13 year old Chinese girl (Valentina Cho) rapping Lecrae’s “Don’t Waste Your Life” at a karaoke context in Hong Kong!  Check it out.

Here is Lecrae’s original version:

    The chinese girl is awesome – even makes her voice sound like the different rappers throughout the song. The line of background clappers cracks me up though. Are they other rappers? You’d expect a little better rhythm from them. 🙂

  2. Rehab is my favorite CD right now. I have been following Lecrae for a while now. He is definitely a great artist and great christian artist.
