Christian hip-hop artist Lecrae revealed his plans for his upcoming mixtape Church Clothes along with the artwork he will use for its cover to Rapzilla.com in an interview over the weekend.
"This mixtape is aimed at the mainstream and is raw, uncut Hip-Hop," said Lecrae to the site. "This is totally different from my past releases, and I hope I can build a bridge between my current fans and create new ones."
Church Clothes will be hosted by Affiliates DJ Don Cannon, a close associate of mixtape king DJ Drama, who has worked with everyone from Lil Wayne to 50 Cent.
Cannon expressed his excitement about the project to Rapzilla.
"What interested me was that he feels so strongly about his beliefs, and I am the same way," said DJ Don Cannon in an interview with Rapzilla. "It's something special in music to be able to stand up in this industry and bring the people something different."
Church Clothes is Lecrae's official introduction into the mainstream hip-hop scene and will feature some well known artists and producers including rapper No Malice of the Clipse and production from Boi-1-Da, S1 and Street Symphony.
Last year was one of major recognition for the Reach Records artist, who appeared on the BET Hip Hop Awards in the famous freestyling exhibition that featured some other popular secular hip hop artists including Eminem, Rick Ross, Busta Rhymes, Ludacris and Wale.
Lecrae also appeared on DJ Statik Selektah's album Population Control that was released earlier this year in a song called "Live and Let Live."
The emcee also performed alongside some hip hop legends and underground sensations including the Wu Tang Clan, Dipset, Brother Ali, Mac Lethal, Boot Camp Clik and Macklemore at this year's Paid Dues independent hip-hop festival that took place on April 7.
