This was one of the most anticipated albums to ever be released by a Christian Hip Hop Artist. After Lecrae collaborated with mainstream producer Statik Selekta and released the "Church Clothes Mixtape" hosted by DJ Canon, the world of Hip Hop started to take notice. With that in mind Lecrae put his best foot forward with the release of "Gravity"
This album is the first major Christian Hip Hop Album that had a chance to grab interest in the main stream.
The release of "Gravity" was followed by a lot of excitement and skepticism. Would Lecrae sell out for a shot at main stream stardom or would he treat the new found attention as a platform to for the Gospel?
It seemed the whole world was listening. Of course, we were too!
Why You Should:
Musically, this is Lecrae's best album. He comes in so hard with "The Drop", and doesn't let up at all. Each song has a unique sound that draws you in while Lecrae's easily navigates the beat to tell of the World and one who can redeem it.
The concept of Gravity was and interesting one. The world weighs us down, so we have to get out of the gravity. As Lecrae says on the title single, " It's Gravity.... keeps pulling me down." The rest of the album is a mix of songs calling for hope and calling out cultural problems.
For anyone who thinks that Lecrae has sold out, you just have to listen to this Album. Lecrae references the hope that is only found in Christ in songs like "Walk With Me", "Free From It All", "Lord Have Mercy", and "Tell the World"
Lecrae is still Unashamed! I can't wait to see whats next!
