Lecrae revealed that before he became a Billboard chart topping success, the contemporary Christian music market was the only one that gave him a chance.

 

In an interview with Forbes, the 37-year-old rapper who does not like to solely be identified as a Christian rapper revealed that he wasn't initially viewed as a gospel rapper. When Lecrae, born Lecrae Devaughn Moore, first started doing music independently with his friends, people questioned what he was doing since Christian hip-hop wasn't a popular genre.

 

 

"We were bastardized from every genre of music. No one was gospel or Christian," the rapper told Forbes. "It was like, 'What is this?' We are all rapping, hip-hop and just doing it outside of the industry for so long."

 

According to Lecrae, the only people who embraced him in the industry were the contemporary Christian musicians since they were used to seeing genre blending artists.

"The only people who initially said 'we'll touch them,' was the contemporary Christian market who'd already been through the Switchfoot and Relient K type of stuff, so it wasn't a big deal for them," he recalled. "We were like, 'Alright, cool. If you guys want to take this on tour, we'll go.'"
