Hip-hop artist Lecrae is gearing up to release his new album, All Things Work Together, and during a recent promotional interview, he revealed why he nearly left Christianity and even contemplated suicide during his recent bout with depression.
Even before the officer-involved shootings of Philando Castile in Minnesota and Alton Sterling in Louisiana, Lecrae has long been an advocate for racial reconciliation. As he became more vocal about racial injustice, however, he realized that not all Christians felt the same way about it.
In a video posted on “The Wade-O Radio” Youtube channel, Lecrae explained the meaning behind his lyrics from the new song, “Can’t Stop Me Now (Destination).”
“I spoke my mind, I got attacked for it/ Thought these people had my back boy/Then they tellin’ me I asked for it/ I guess I’m just another black boy/ And then they killed Tamir Rice/ And they just go on with they life/ They tellin’ me shut up talking ’bout it/ Like, I should just talk about Christ/ But the truth is I started to doubt God/ I started to question my purpose/ I started to act out,” he raps on “Can’t Stop Me Now (Destination).”
