This Grammy Award-winner recently became the first artist to occupy the No. 1 album spot on both the Billboard Gospel and Top 200 lists, making history with his seventh studio album, Anomaly.
Anomaly isn’t the first No. 1 album for Lecrae – it’s actually his sixth! In 2010, Lecrae released the critically acclaimed album, Rehab. It debuted in the Top 20 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart. By 2011, Lecrae released a follow-up album, Gravity, scoring the No. 1 position on the Rap Album and Independent Album charts and debuting at No. 3 on the Billboard Top 200.
Lecrae’s rise has been noted everywhere from Rolling Stone and The New York Times to industry trades such as Billboard Magazine and Variety. He performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and co-hosted The Dove Awards, among other appearances. He’s also won two Grammy Awards as well as a Billboard Music Award.
Described as the “Evolution of Hip-Hop,” Lecrae is an artist who remains true to his beliefs. “We’ve always looked at it as if we’re not trying to sell CDs, we’re trying to take care of people – give them messages of hope and inspiration,” he says.
