The publication asked the Grammy-award winning rapper how he balances God, family and music when he’s on the road. He replied with an answer common among Christians.
“The good thing about God is that he’s everywhere already, so I don’t got to take him with me. That’s just a relationship,” said Lecrae to HipHopDX.com. “I’m not religious at all; I’m not into the routines and rituals. I have a relationship with God, and he’s with me everywhere I go, so I don’t have to force that. When I’m on the tour bus or on stage, we’re communicating, and you know, I can read on my bunk.”
Lecrae admitted that keeping family as a priority while touring can sometimes be difficult, and he even had to move a show date in order to make his daughter’s birthday once.
He also spoke about his upcoming album and stated that he’s already moved on from it creatively.
“I’ve already moved onto the next thing,” he said. “The rest of the world.. the people who are waiting on the project are still waiting. I’ll have to go back through the experience of listening to it again with them as they hear it for the first time.”
Our sister site interviewed Lecrae earlier this summer and this is what he told them:
I’ve heard people argue about whether you’re a gospel rapper or just a rapper with an inspirational message. So does that fluidity sometimes confuse fans?
Well, you know, there’s some who have to grow with you to begin to understand this is just different. It’s almost like culture shock. Some fans have a hard time figuring me out initially because they need some kind of box to put me in instead of allowing me to be the box. I am the category that you’re looking for.
