Born and raised by his mother in a poor community, Lecrae Moore moved around a lot which gave him the versatile background and cultural awareness he carries with him. He took to rapping as a way of communicating his thoughts but it wasn’t until after high school that his hobby became a passion and Jesus Christ redeemed his hip-hop background.
After attending a Christian conference, he heard James White delivering the message and his world was flipped upside down. The next five years included many struggles and victories before he found Reach Records at the age of 25 and released his first album.
He used his gifts of speaking and raping while he volunteered at a juvenile detention center before he began working on his debut album, Real Talk. He currently lives in Atlanta, Georgia and his passion for impacting urban culture persists. With three successful albums to his name, touring worldwide along with the 116 Clique, and inspiring a generation of young believers across the globe, Lecrae is humbled by his position in leading others towards Christ.
