Last week brought us the seventh album release from Christian rap visionary Lecrae. The much anticipated Anomaly very quickly rose to No. 2 on the iTunes charts and still continues at No. 1 on the Hip-Hop/Rap chart (and continues to be sold out at my local Target).
As has become common with Lecrae's releases, Anomaly has gained much acclaim from critics and fans spanning across the Christian and mainstream markets. These fans quickly took to Twitter petitioning for Lecrae to make an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon by creating the trending topic #LecraeOnFallon.
Well, the producers over at NBC took notice of the devoted fan base and decided, "Ask and it shall be given to you." While Lecrae won't be the first Christian artist to play The Tonight Show stage (Bands like Switchfoot, Third Day, and for KING & COUNTRY have previously graced the stage), this event is monumental as he will be the first Christian rap artist to appear on the show.
Lecrae continues to break down barriers with his ministry and help grow the Christian music industry and spread the gospel in incredible ways. Tune in on Thursday, September 18th at 11:35 / 10:35 Central to see Lecrae's performance as he joins actor Billy Crystal, actress Rose Byrne, and chef Nobu Matsuhisa.
