The Reach Records founder and Academy Award winner took to Facebook on Tuesday to share an excerpt from Unashamed, which is set to release on May 3. In the snippet the rapper describes his initial reaction to getting saved and what he has since learned from his behavior:

I had finally been set free, but I was about to find out if I could live free. A person can be removed from slavery in an instant, but it takes a lifetime for slavery to be removed from a person.

The first thing I did when I returned to college after my conversion was steal a Bible. It was sitting in a local church’s ‘lost and found’ box — someone else had lost it, but I found it before they did.

People who were raised in church often talk about coming home from a summer youth camp or church revival and being on a ‘high.’ Maybe that’s the best way to describe what I felt too. It felt like a high, except I didn’t have to smoke any weed to experience it.
