Lecrae and 1K Phew recently released their new collaborative album, No Church In A While. The album features ten tracks,  including "Wildin," "Ready Or Not," and "One Call."

The concept for their collaborative album grew out of conversations between Lecrae and 1K Phew. Lecrae was recording his mixtape, Church Clothes 4, when it occurred to him that people actually hadn't been to church to even put on those church clothes because of the pandemic, church hurt, and other reasons. Out of his conversations with 1K Phew came the idea to record an album for people who, like themselves, hadn't been to church in a while.

"No Church In A While has all types of meanings," explains 1K Phew. "We just went through the pandemic, and ain't nobody been to church in a minute. This album is for everybody who ain't been to church or connected to God in a while who thinks they can't go back. It ain't really that deep. God is waiting for everybody to tap back in. No Church In A While is telling people there's still hope. You can still turn to God no matter how long you've been away."

Atlanta native 1K Phew is the only artist signed to the Reach Records roster who was born and raised in the city that the label now calls home. He is leading the way for a new breed of artists, taking the trap sensibility and elevating it into a new sound called "Street Gospel," a term he coined. 1K Phew's smooth delivery, swag, and evocative vocals have an infectious quality that is streetwise yet commercially viable. Reach Records president/co-founder Lecrae describes Phew's sound as hip-hop that is equally at home in the club or the church.

"Our artists at Reach Records are continuing to prove that faith can exist beyond the pews of the church if expressed authentically," Lecrae shares. "Rappers like 1K Phew are carrying forward the torch we lit with 'Let The Trap Say Amen,' using their music to reach hip-hop heads with a spiritually that's not forced or foreign to them."
