Controversy has been brewing around Reach Records CEO and Grammy® winning rapper
Lecrae Moore, 34, for quite a while.
Many have taken aim at the Christian MC for rejecting the “Christian rap” label, assuming he is distancing
himself from Jesus for mainstream appeal. But Lecrae says, not so.
“A lot of people think that because I don’t like the title Christian rapper that I’m somehow ashamed of my faith,”
he said during an interview on SiriusXM Satellite Radio show “Sway In the Morning” hosted by DJ Sway
as other personal questions the host tossed his way.
“I have no qualms about being ashamed of what I believe in or embarrassed to say Jesus or none of that type
of stuff,” said the “Nuthin” rapper, adding, “but I don’t like music to be categorized.”
