Lecrae boldly declared his love for Jesus and path to faith on a recent episode of ESPN’s First Take.
“I didn’t grow up in church or anything like that,” the rapper shared. “Around 19 years old, I found myself on a college campus surrounded by Christians who looked like me, they dressed like me, they talked like me. And it was kind of off-putting. I didn’t know what to do with that, but they loved me, they mentored me, they embraced me and really opened me up to understand who I was and who I was created to be and that God made me with purpose and reason.”
First Take is a sports talk show featuring Skip Bayless, Stephen A. Smith and Milly Qerim.
Lecrae’s appearance with the trio comes shortly after his interview/performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
The rapper’s media appearances promote his new memoir, Unashamed.
“Unashamed is a memoir of seeing somebody come through my circumstances of fatherlessness, wrestling with identity in who I wanted to be and who I should be, finding myself grounded on this journey that led to spiritual awakening,” Lecrae says.
