So I’m goin to the Lecrae concert in KC with Melissa on Friday. I’m pretty pumped. Lecrae is my 2nd favorite artist in the game. Switchfoot would be #1, and I just saw them live a for the first time a few weeks ago. I pretty stoked. My 2 favorite artists in a span of 1 months! So in reaction to the upcoming concert, I wanna share some of my favorite Lecrae rhymes.

“All they rhyme about is guns, money, sex, and drugs. 80% of these dudes is fictional thugs.” Unashamed (After the Music Stops)

“What if life ain’t supposed to be gravy. Fulla hurt, pain, death, rape, murder, and craziness. If God made everything good, then why you still gotta live in the hood? What’s really good?” Change (Rebel)

“Jesus felt the pain. He was hated, hurt, slandered, and slain. But his death brought (change). Be a slave to your sin. Hate God, love money, love lies, Christ died so you can be (changed).” Change (Rebel)

“But why would ya die for me? My whole life I’ve been working for Satan, while He fed lies to me.” Take Me As I Am (Real Talk)

“I said I’ll never leave you, but I’m so left. I ain’t right, Lord I’m sleeping with death. I am cheating with death.” Breathin to Death (Rebel)

“It’s like I’m outside in the ice cold weather. The rains coming down and I keep getting wetter. I know I’m getting sick and I could die any second, but still I refuse to let your truth make me better.” Breathin to Death (Rebel)

“The world is so tempting. Satan is a beast! He hypnotizes my eyes to say the least. But Jesus be my treasure to know you is live. I am here dying trying everything there is.” Breathin to Death (Rebel)

“All these rappers say they got guns that spray off 16. I got a Luke 9 that can take all 16”  Truth (Rebel)

“You go to school, get ya degrees, and get a job. So you can make a whole lot of cheese, cuz life’s hard. You never thought of livin to please a real God. And that’s the reason He made you.” Truth (Rebel)

“What is evil though man? It’s anything that’s against God. It’s anything morally bad or wrong. It’s murder, rape, stealing, lying, cheating. But if we want God to stop evil, do we want Him to stop it all or just a little bit of it? If He stops us from doing evil things, what about lying, or what about our evil thoughts? I mean, where do you stop, the murder level, the lying level, or the thinking level? If we want Him to stop evil, we gotta be consistent, we can’t just pick and choose. That means you and I would be eliminated right? Because we think evil stuff. If that’s true, we should be eliminated! But thanks be to God that Jesus stepped in to save us from our sin! Christ died for all evilness! Repent, turn to Jesus man!” Truth (Rebel)

There are soooo many more lines and bars that inspire me. But I think you get the point: this dude is SERIOUS. Lecrae don’t play. That’s why I love him (not to mention that fact that his beats are dope).

FRIDAY 7pm could not get here soon enough!!
