NASHVILLE, Tenn. - (January 11, 2016) LECRAE is heading back to school in 2016.

"This tour allows me to be involved and inspire some of the most impactful and influential leaders of tomorrow," said Lecrae. "College is where many of the world-changing thoughts and ideas are birthed. I want my music and my message to help inspire those ideas."

Last year at the Grammy® Awards, he was nominated for the coveted Best Rap Performance alongside Drake, Eminem, Childish Gambino and Kendrick Lamar.

Lecrae has been praised by mainstream and hip-hop press alike with features in Time Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, XXL, Essence Magazine, Billboard and Vibe Magazine, among others.
