Lecrae Shares His Thoughts On The Murder Of George Floyd

By Posted on

Rapper Lecrae Is sharing his thoughts on what we should do with the anger and pain we are feeling from the death of George Floyd and others.

“There’s a destructive way to use that emotion and there’s a constructive way to use it that emotion. My prayer is that we would use it constructively.”

The Christian rapper offered up 3 things that he encourage believers to employ:

  1. Prayer: Pray for those who are suffering for the loss of George Floyd and others.
  2. Policy: Making sure you vote, making sure you show up.
  3. Programs: Get involved in local programs where you can inform people about issues of disparity and injustice in our country.

Lecrae ‘I WANT TO RESTORE THE VIEW THE BLACK COMMUNITY HAS OF ITSELF’

Grammy Award-winning rapper, Lecrae said he hopes his new album, Restoration (out next month) , and its accompanying book “I Am Restored,” will inspire the black community to focus on what God says about them and not the world.

Here is an excerpt from the conversation the Atlanta based rapper had with Black Enterprise.


I’m excited to put out some healing music. I want people to know that you’re never too messed up for a restoration. Second divorce, prison sentence, it doesn’t matter. There’s always hope, healing, and restoration available if you seek it.

Lecrae

I want to restore the view the black community has of itself. We can change the narrative, empower the disenfranchised, and close wealth gaps. We can restore the dignity that was stripped from us. We can lean on God to restore our sense of purpose and worth. I am partnered on several projects to restore Atlanta’s English Avenue, an area known for its rampant drug trafficking and violent crime statistics. I’m also an active member of the Board of Advisory for Peace Academy, the first school in the English Avenue area to be opened in more than 20 years.

Lecrae Get’s Baptized In Jordan River

Lecrae, along with hip-hop artist, Derek Minor took a trip to Israel to add “fuel to their faith,” and restore their relationship.

During the trip Lecrae was baptized in the Jordan River .

“Today we got baptized in the Jordan River. The one John baptized Jesus in. I was joking before I got dipped and I said if a bird lands out here like the dove on Jesus, bruh….I’m gonna have a heart attack. Just take me to heaven cause God is speakin too loud! Well look at the pics. I love the Jordan because of all the symbolism it holds. It was the border of the promised land. It was the picture of safety and security. Getting baptized in it was an incredible experience for me,” he wrote on Instagram.

The Christian rapper also posted a pic of him and Derek Minor, and shared how the trip was a trip of restoration for him and Minor’s relationship.

“Backstory…I’ve know @thederekminor for years. He’s like a brother to me.. except I wasn’t really great at being brother to him. I let him down more than a few times.”

He continued,


I wasn’t operating from a healthy place and damaged our relationship.
Time goes by where we didn’t talk much but he goes to Israel/Palestine and comes back and reaches out to me. I’m a little shocked. He’s like listen “after what I’ve seen over there bro…God is too big to hold on to our past issues.” He offers to take me with him next time he goes..at no cost. Fast forward now I’m over here in Isreal and Palestine blown away. As God restores my relationship with my brother, I’m praying for restoration in the Middle East and everywhere and for YOU whoever you are reading this. God is a restorer. God is YOUR restorer.”
