Why Lecrae Might Retire After His Next Album Restoration Drops
By Tess Farrand, Associate Content Editor
Christian rapper Lecrae might retire from music after his upcoming album Restoration drops so that the younger generation can shine.
“There’s some new blood out here and I just want the new blood to come and do their thing,” said the rapper. “So Restoration feels like, ‘Yo, here it is.’ I don’t know [but] that’s how I’m feeling.”
Restoration will be Lecrae’s ninth studio album.
“Restoration, I mean, honestly, everybody says it’s the best album [I’ve] ever made, but this is for real. And this might be it for me,” Lecrae told Rapzilla. “I mean I’ll probably do some mixtapes, but I don’t know if I’m making another full-featured album.”
Lecrae was a performer at the Movieguide® Awards in 2015 and frequently works with artists who don’t necessarily fall into the faith category.
Movieguide® previously reported:
Chart-topping Christian recording artist Lecrae vulnerably shared that grace captivated his heart toward Jesus Christ.
Lecrae has popular song titles with other singers like Tori Kelly, Andy Mineo, Kari Job, and Tedashii, but the rapper is also a particular case study because he never shies away from working with nonbelievers.
Rapper Waka Flocka Flame and Ty Dolla$ are just a few examples.
Yet, Lecrae makes no apologies and also never backs down from being who he is in Christ around them.
In recent weeks, Lecrae and John Legend released a collocation song called “Drown” which has lyrics with bold cries out to God for comfort and safety.
