Lecrae – Does He Deserve To Be Considered the Best Christian Rap Artist?
If there is any contemporary Christian rap artists who has successfully transcended from the paradigm of typical Gospel rap orientation to the secular music scene, it is probably no other than Lecrae. Around the world, Lecrae (or Lecrae Devaughn Moore in full) is known to be a “Christian rap artist”. As one, he has been able to win dozens of awards and recognitions from multiple award-giving bodies in the music industry. The most recent, and perhaps the biggest, achievement that Lecrae has reached as a musician was when he won the “Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song” during the Grammy Awards. Aside from this prestigious award, he or his music is a constant chart-topper in the Billboard chart rankings and other music outlets.
Amidst all these however, there is has been a perennial question about the status of Lecrae, which up until this moment still remains unanswered. Does he really deserve to be considered the best Christian rap artist? If you will digest this question more intently, you will notice that it does not only question the personality of Lecrae as a rapper but also as a genuine Christian.

There can be two different views about this. It can be viewed into two different spectra: (1) he being a rapper/musician and (2) he being a Christian rapper/musician. The insertion of the term Christian made a whole world of difference and questions about the way Lecrae delivers his art.
