Outspoken Christian and rapper, Lecrae, says his ascent to the top of mainstream music charts like the Billboard 200 and being recognized with Grammy awards for his work has little to do with his talent and more to do with God's plan for his life.
"I don't have [the talent or crossover appeal]," said Lecrae in a recent interview with Christian rap site Rapzilla about his friend Kendrick Lamar's critically-acclaimed album "To Pimp A Butterfly".
"I don't accredit any of this to just my capability or talent. I think God is doing something far beyond my comprehension. So I don't understand it. I don't try to make a science out of it," added the rapper whose latest album "Anomaly" became his first number one album on the Billboard 200 last summer. more >>
