Lecrae, Rebel

NEWS SOURCE: All Star Communications
October 9, 2008

The highly anticipated album from Lecrae is now the No. 1 Gospel album in the country according to Billboard's Top Gospel charts. The Reach Records recording artist and Dove Award Nominee released his junior album, Rebel, on Sept 30 and immediately appeared on iTunes's Top Rap/Hip Hop Album chart in the No. 3 position just below T.I.'s Paper Trail. Rebel also claimed Billboard's No. 8 position on the Top Rap Album mainstream chart as well as the No. 3 position on Billboard's Top Christian & Gospel Album chart.

Breaking his own record with multiple sales chart appearances, Rebel is now the highest debuting album in the Christian Rap industry, and Lecrae is proof that the ministry of Christ-centered Gospel Rap is truly a form of music that we should all pay close attention to. President of ReachLife Ministries, Lecrae is most recognized for hit singles "Jesus Muzik" and "Prayin For You" from his groundbreaking sophomore CD, After The Music Stops. Even after releasing in 2006 with a debut in the No. 5 position on Billboard charts, the album continues to appear on the Top Christian Rap/R&B charts and sits currently at the No. 3 position.

Redefining a worldview depiction of a person who is resistant in their ways, Lecrae presents the characteristics of a rebel as one who is now rebellious towards the passive approach to an undedicated lifestyle. Through personal testimony and powerful messages, Rebel provides a greater understanding for its listeners to channel their passion towards an unashamed life for God.

Standing firm on Romans 1:16, Lecrae just completed the 25-City International "Unashamed Tour" with labelmates Tedashii, Sho Baraka, and Trip Lee. With a mission to spread the gospel by calling each location to live an unashamed life for the Lord, the tour kicked off in Lecrae's home state of Texas and concluded in Australia. The first artist to sign with Memphis-based Reach Records, while maintaining a lofty tour schedule, the University of North Texas graduate continues to serve and disciple at his local church.

Lecrae's Rebel is distributed to the CBA market and Wal-Mart stores by Infinity/Central South Distribution. For more information on Lecrae and the album Rebel, please visit or
