You would hardly know it from the indie-sized shoot, but Lecrae is a superstar -- in Christian music, at least. His last album, Gravity, debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200, sold nearly 300,000 copies (according to Nielsen SoundScan) and won a Grammy for best gospel album in January. He also counts professional athletes -- dozens of them, from Tim Tebow to Andrew McCutchen -- among his fans. Add a comment
