Lecrae recently discussed the topic of faith with a popular hip-hop website while promoting his upcoming "Anomaly" album.
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." more >>

It's been almost 35 years since that fateful day on Dec. 8, 1980 ,when Mark David Chapman fired shots that echoed around the globe as they killed one of the world's most beloved singer-songwriters in ex-Beatle, John Lennon. But in Chapman's eighth parole board hearing this Wednesday, he told the New York state parole board that although he took Lennon's life in search of self-fame and notoriety, his life is no longer controlled by selfish demons and is now solely focused on the Lord Jesus Christ. Despite that claim, Chapman was again denied parole.
Chapman, who read a book on the Beatles when he was a child that had inspired him to become "somebody important or better," was lulled into a stark drunken depression in his life, unfulfilled as a security guard working in Hawaii. Upset because his childhood dreams of fame hadn't panned out, he stumbled across a picture of John Lennon and wondered "what would happen if I kill him?"
What happened was Chapman, now 59 years old, was convicted of murder and sentenced to 20 years to life in a New York prison about 25 miles west of Buffalo and nearly 5,000 miles away from his wife. Having been denied parole eight times now, it is looking like Chapman may be there for life. Although Chapman has been able to sit and think about the heinousness of the premeditated murder he committed, that time has also allowed him to apparently come to Christ. more >>

Rapper Ma$e's decision to leave music and turn to ministry in the late 1990s was not based on a true calling, but was made in order to avoid problems in the industry, according to a fellow artist.
Lord Jamar, a member of the hip-hop group Brand Nubian and Five Percent Nation recently spoke out against the rapper who recently made headlines for leaving the church he pastored in order to return to music in a VladTV interview.
"I'm not surprised," said Jamar in response to the question of why Ma$e made the sudden change from ministry to music recently. "Did he really seem like he had some sort of revelation and he was really a faithful follower? I've seen him teetering for the longest time." more >>
