As you know I am always looking around for different types of music for motivation. So a few weeks ago I was reminded of Lecrae, a Christian rapper. I had heard some of his stuff, but never went to check it closer. Then I went out to spend the weekend with a bunch of middle school kids. After that, I decided I needed to check out Lecrae.
I am not much of a Hip Hop sort of guy. Usually the most hip hop I listen to is before football games when its blasting in the stadium, but I like this guy’s words and his message
I’m a F-A-N-A-T-I-C, Fanatic
I rep Christ till I D-I-E, Fanatic
I’m not extreme, I’m redeemed with faith
To serve a God whose extremely great
I’m a Fanatic – Lecrae
He and several of his co-rappers have just started on a tour this week called Unashamed. I am pretty impressed with their message. I think there something there to listen to. Here is what Trip Lee (I think) says in the below clip “We are to serve our brother, serve our sisters , serve the Lord and humble ourselves and do whats necessary for the Lord to get the glory.” That’s good stuff. Take a listen:
It’s interesting that they have used Romans one one six (1:16) as a theme verse. That seems like a pretty appropriate challenge for today
16I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. Romans 1:16 (New International Version)
Are you ready to join the one one six clique and live a life where you are unashamed? It’s the Power!
