Q: What would fans be surprised to find on your iPod? A: I've got three of them, and it runs the gamut. There's always some funk, some jazz fusion, some jazz-funk, some rockers that can really throw down. There's a lot of hip-hop Christian rap on there, too. I don't know if that would surprise people. What would surprise people?

Lecrae was in the United Kingdom and it was "CRAAAAZY! I couldn't really capture it in words. Spiritually there was a strong sincerity and desire to know and love Jesus," says Lecrae. He also adds on his myspace blog "Musically the believers there are incredibly talented. Don't sleep America!" If anyone finds any footage on Youtube, or if you were there be sure to leave a comment about it!
This summer, the 116 Clique (Lecrae, Trip Lee, Sho Baraka, and Tedashii) is traveling from city to city, not just to put on a concert, but to call believers to live UNASHAMED of the GOSPEL! Are you ready to live that way? Or will you allow the world to keep you from being souled out for Christ?

AllHipHop.com has an article about Christian Hip Hop/Rap.
Holy Hip-Hop it is not just for the deeply religious and positive thinking. Today, rappers from the mainstream are moving away from the secular and reconnecting with a Christian faith that was once just a hush-hush topic in Hip-Hop circles.
