Lecrae is one of the leading lights in the gospel-rap movement, Lecrae also has the chart-topping records to prove it. For the typical music fan, his hard demeanor and crunk beats might belie what his lyrics are really about: his adoration of Jesus Christ. The main tenet influencing his mission and music is taken from Romans 1:16 of the Bible, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel.”


Tedashii is another leading light in the gospel rap movement. He came across many trials and tribulations throughout his childhood and that has impacted his unique and rugged dirty south-style rap portraying Jesus Christ.
