Reaching the lost
Posted September 08, 2012
By L7,


Lecrae is back with another album that reminds those familiar with hip hop that drug induced lyrics and stripper anthems are not necessary to make good rap music. Moving from his ever popular Rehab movement Crae brings us Gravity. This cd is sure to please his fans and prove to the rest of the world that Christian rap (don't let Lecrae hear you label it) is just as relevant if not more so than secular Hip Hop. Not many songs stand out as possible fan favourites but certain ones do have what may be considered favorite features. 1.1.Six Clique original Thi'sl appears on Fakin', an appeal to secular artists to keep it real and realize they keep "8th graders with their eyes on the chopper". In an age where middle schoolers bring guns (even realistic bb guns) to school not to do harm but for image, this song is a cultural necessity. another clique originator, Sho Baraka (no longer signed to
Reach Records), appears on Power Trip. This song is full of metaphors sure to please the most lyrically discerning listener. I must also say that lately "theological" doesn't describe Lecrae's lyrics. No more than the book of Esther is. It no less speaks the truth to the culture but if I'm to be picky on semantics, theology is something Gravity lacks. Nevertheless Lecrae has never been one to leave out the gospel. Its foundational to his whole outlook and what the 1.1.Six structured on. 
This is probably Lecrae's first release that I believe is worth less than 5 starts. It ends leaving me expecting more from it lyrically and theologically.
