LA Galaxy's Gyasi Zardes Says Lecrae, Andy Mineo, & Social Club Inspire Him

Soccer (football) star Gyasi Zardes of the L.A. Galaxy was on a YouTube segment called "FIFA and Chill" and spoke about how he listens to Christian hip-hop.

The hosts Poet and Vuj brought up Drake to which he said he was a fan. Zardes then said, "I listen to a lot of Christian music."

"I don't want to place it in a label because it's just like our music. It's very inspirational because I pay attention to the lyrics," he shared.

He named dropped Lecrae, Social Club Misfits, and Andy Mineo as artists that inspire him.
