When Lecrae Devaughn Moore is feeling down, he likes to visit cemeteries.

At least that's what he told one fan during a question and answer session on the blogging platform Tumblr Monday. The rapper had an interesting answer for one person who questioned "where's your favorite place to go when you're feeling down?"

The 37-year-old rapper admitted it was odd that he found peace where bodies are buried.

"Oddly enough I like cemeteries," he revealed. "They are peaceful and allow me to remember this all ends one day."

Before the world came to know him for his music, the Grammy Award-winning rapper did not grow up with a great deal of peace in his life.

"I wrestled with a sense of self-worth because my dad decided drugs would be better than hanging out with his own son," he previously said in an interview with The 700 Club. "My uncles were young and wrapped up in the streets, gangs and drugs and just promiscuous. I idolized it."

However, a teenage Lecrae found out that following in those footsteps would not be a fulfilling path to take.

"I knew my ways were unfulfilling. I chased power, pleasure, possessions, something satisfying. I knew I kept getting let down," he admitted. "I knew it was insanity, and I was never going to find fulfillment but I didn't know what else to look for."

Instead of looking for influences in other people, Lecrae found what he was missing in God.

"He's just loved on me when I felt like I didn't deserve love, when I felt like I was unlovable. I feel fortunate to have a huge family that is beyond race, creed, culture, and have a Father who shepherds us all," he said. "When I think about that, my mind is blown. There's nothing like it."
