Lecrae has released his memoir “Unashamed.” The book documents the rise of the two-time Grammy winning hip-hop artist, cultural icon and community activist despite a lifetime of adversity – childhood abuse, drugs and alcoholism, a stint in rehab, an abortion, and an unsuccessful suicide attempt.
Along his pilgrimage, Lecrae attained an unwavering faith and began looking to God for affirmation. Now as a chart-topping music industry anomaly, he has learned to silence the noise and make peace with his craft. The hip-hop star holds nothing back as he divulges the most sensitive details of his life, answers his critics, shares intimate handwritten journal entries, and powerfully models how to be Christian in an ever-growing secular age.
Lecrae is a Grammy award winning hip-hop artist whose 2014 album, Anomaly, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200, Rap, Digital, Christian, Gospel, and Independent charts. His seven studio albums and mixtapes have sold more than 1.5 million copies. Lecrae has been nominated for five Grammy Awards, including a win in 2013 for Best Gospel Album and Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song in 2015, as well as won seven Dove Awards, secured one Billboard Music Award nomination, won two Soul Train Music Awards and a BET Hip Hop Awards nomination. Lecrae resides in Atlanta, Georgia with his wife and three children.
“Unashamed” is available in-stores an online at popular retailers such as Amazon and iTunes.
