Fans of rapper Lecrae received a surprise at his concert in Oakland when he honored NBA MVP Steph Curry who helped the Christian recording artist perform the song, "I'm Turnt."

Curry, the 27-year-old Golden State Warriors point guard, appeared onstage at Lecrae's tour stop in Oakland, California, last week to introduce "I'm Turnt" and dance alongside the rapper during the entire song.

The basketball star, who recently won an NBA championship for the 2014-2015 season, introduced the rapper's song by glorifing the "most high," saying "that's what it's all about."

After Curry danced onstage to the song during the Aug. 20 performance, Lecrae, the 35-year-old Grammy award winning rapper, honored the Christian athlete.

"I love this dude because he really knows what it's all about. As good as he is, as amazing as he is on the court … his character, man, it comes from the most high all day every day," Lecrae told the audience while Curry was onstage before turning to the basketball player. "We love you; we appreciate what you represent man. God bless you."

Curry has been honored multiple times this year, and has made sure that his Christian faith has been at the forefront of it all. During his NBA MVP acceptance speech last May, Curry spoke about his blessings despite some of the struggles he was forced to endure.

"There were obviously good times and bad times. Times I wanted to shut it down," Curry said in his speech, which is featured on the official NBA website. "It just made me feel like how blessed and thankful I am to be in this position."

While the player shared notable memories with his teammates and Warriors staff, he also made it clear that his faith was one of the key reasons for his success.

"Sometimes people make it seem like you have to have certain prerequisites or a crazy life story in order to be successful in this world. But the truth is you really don't," Curry said. "It doesn't matter where you come from, what you have or don't have, what you lack or what you have too much of. But all you need to have is faith in God, an undying passion for what you do and what you choose to do in this life, and a relentless drive and the will to do whatever it takes to be successful in whatever you put your mind to."

Earlier this year, he took time out to reflect on his Christian faith when speaking to Christian sports apparel brand, Active Faith. According to the Christian athlete, his relationship with Jesus Christ started around middle school.

"My parents had us in church every Sunday, every Wednesday. It was more of a tradition at that point; I didn't have a personal relationship with the Lord until I went to the altar call one Sunday and the youth pastor told us to make a decision for ourselves," Curry told Active Faith. "The youth pastor told us we had to make a decision for ourselves, we couldn't rely on our parents. It had to be a decision on our own, and that's when I made it."

"There are so many things we have to overcome in this life with Jesus, His work on the cross; He's paid the ultimate price for us, so I'm proud to be a child of God," Curry told Active Faith.
