Always Knew

Album: All Things Work Together (2017)
  • Lecrae is a complex individual, who stays true to himself and walks in both the hip-hop and Christian worlds:

    How can he love Jesus, Kanye, and K-Dot?
    Martin, Malcolm, and Schaeffer, Mitsubishi, and Maybach?
    Contradictory, nah, it's complimentary
    Understanding me ain't for the simple and elementary, oh


    Asked by Billboard about his views, which don't fit into cliché norms and boxes, Lecrae replied:

    "I think complexity is beautiful. I think we want everything to be black and white, but we miss out on the whole rainbow and the beauty of that when you try to limit it... There's some stuff I may not condone, but I don't condemn and I just try to see the beauty in it and what God intended in things, instead of condemning everything. I feel like that's what a lot of Christians do, they criticize. They condemn instead of creating, and I just wanted to change that narrative and show people that... and plus, there's a lot of Christians who say, 'Oh, that's me too, I was scared to say it, but at the end of the day, just be you and I'm gonna be me.'"
