Lecrae made history with his brand-new single "All I Need Is You" this week, becoming the first Christian hip-hop artist of all time to ever reach the number-one spot on iTunes.
The rapper spoke with The Christian Post about the achievement this week and stated that he does not view it as something to brag about.

Many people do that. Some sing country or jazz - I rap. At the end of the day I'm not here to hold up the banner of a genre. I am here to hold up the banner of Truth. It's way bigger than genres and charts. I'm fighting to be a voice in culture. A voice in a dark world." more >>

The most recent controversy includes Driscoll's comments revealed under the name 'William Wallace II' posted in 2000.

He added, "It all began with Adam, the first of the pussified nation, who kept his mouth shut and watched everything fall headlong down the slippery slide of hell/feminism when he shut his mouth and listened to his wife who thought Satan was a good theologian when he should have lead her and exercised his delegated authority as king of the planet. more >>
