Lecrae Lands #12 on Rolling Stone’s 40 Best Rap Albums of 2014

The mainstream success continues for Lecrae as he was recently featured in Rolling Stone’s best rap albums of 2014. Anomaly landed at the #12 spot, ahead of most major industry artists. Read an excerpt from Rolling Stone’s article below:

Chart-topping rapper Lecrae built his fanbase independently, releasing six albums on his own Reach Records, a label that spreads a Christian message. He’s set to be the first rapper from the devotional circuit to find a pop audience, and has caught the attention of mainstream rap like none other before. While several songs celebrate his love of Christ, Anomaly is a record about principles. On “Outsiders,” he casts his religiousness in a secular society as pure freedom “to be what I’m supposed to be” and criticizes America as a place “where we’ll do anything for the money.” He warns against the dangers of promiscuous sex on “Runners,” employs fast-rap deftness on “Timepiece” to explain his rejection of fame for personal benefit, and even flips a bounce style over a trap rhythm on the practice-what-you-preach anthem “Dirty Water.”M.R.
