Christian rapper Lecrae has gotten his doctorate! The rapper is the youngest person to receive an honorary doctorate degree from Canada Christian College.President of the Christian College, Dr. Charles McVety said of the Christian rapper,” that his talents are amazing as are his achievements, but even more important is his outreach to troubled youth.”
In a letter to the Mayor of Toronto, John Tory and police Chief Mark Saunders, McVety writes: “Lecrae was raised by a single mother and he never met his father. He was lost in the inner city of Houston taking drugs and reportedly dealing heroin. God dramatically turned his life around from the ghetto to the pinnacle of success. Now Lecrae wants the same for others as he is taking his message of hope and fatherhood to inner city youth.”
In Lecrae’s case, it was a bible from his grandmother that helped save him. Whenever he was out on the streets with the drugs, guns and gangsters, he always had the good book with him. When he was arrested, a police officer noticed it and challenged him to follow it.
Nothing but God success has come his way since. The Bible teaches us that if we delight ourselves in the Lord, that He will give us the desires of our heart.
