As Lecrae releases, Church Clothes 4, he boldly stands at the crossroads of sacred and secular, a lane he unashamedly accepts. In the ten years since the first Church Clothes mixtape (hosted by DJ Don Cannon) released in 2012, no one has been able to surpass the heights that Lecrae has reached crossing CHH over to the mainstream, planting his feet simultaneously in the street and the Church without compromising. While the critics blasted him for not picking a side, the people spoke even louder, downloading the music for the original Church Clothes over 100,000 times within 48 hours.

On November 4th, he brings the righteous and ratchet together yet again and this time for Church Clothes 4, the last of the mixtape series! He maintains the unashamed posture reflecting on Romans 116, "For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to EVERYONE who believes first to the Jew, then to the Gentile!' emphasizing that his music also is not just for believers, but for everyone! In Episode 2 of his Church Clothes TV short airing on YouTube, Lecrae explains, "I've always been a combination of my roots and my faith. I love God but I grew up in hip-hop and the hood. People always want to put me in one camp or the other. Truth is you (with me), you can't have the righteous without the ratchet. They're two sides of the same coin."

While Church Clothes 4's first single "Spread The Opps," recognized the opposition, his second single "Fear Not" acknowledges that our faith in God is bigger than our deepest fears! On "Spread The Opps," Lecrae stated "I've been running for so long from the opposition. Since I was a kid, there were enemies, both physical and spiritual, that were trying to destroy me. I decided to stop running. This song, "Spread The Opps," is me knowing that even in the valley of death, God is with me. He’s scattering the opposition."

On the second single, "Fear Not," he shares,“Everyone deals with fear. I’ve met some of the most hardened criminals sitting behind prison walls confess their fears. Fear makes us run, or fight, or do nothing. I believe the cure is fear is faith. Faith in a God who is bigger than our biggest fears. We don’t have to be afraid of the dark. The dark is afraid of the light within us. Fear Not is the articulation of that.”

A verse in "Fear Not," speaks to the illusion of fame! "They don’t even recognize me when they see me coming all they see is fame. They don’t know behind these Cartier’s, just a little boy full of pain."

Church Clothes 4 is coming November 4th! Check out the "Fear Not" lyrics and put yours to rest!

Lecrae “Fear Not” lyrics

Intro

Candlelight shines inside this pumpkinhead 

Waiting on the borderline

Please don’t be afraid, or it’s gonna end

Verse 1

I lied, I panic

My mind wreaks havoc

I cried, can’t manage

I did my damage

I came, I saw, I killed, I’m savage

My crime so heavy, my sin left baggage

Can’t stand it, a liar, cheater, and a killer

Never meant to cause them damage

Looking at me in a mirror

I see myself and start to panic

They don’t even recognize me when they see me coming all they see is fame

They don’t know behind these Cartier’s, just a little boy full of pain

Push me ‘round, put me down

Touched the crown, took me out, yeah

Vegas nights I gave the dice to Satan twice

It’s crazy I ain’t dead

And I should’ve called James White

Flew into Memphis to hang out with soup and tell him that all ain’t right

But I was afraid

Confession bring you peace, secrets make you weep

The devil like to feast on all your sinful feats

One too many drinks, tell my mama peace

Death is on my feet, let me rest in peace

Interlude 1

[Speaker #1]

Candlelight shines inside this pumpkinhead 

Waiting on the borderline

Candlelight shines inside this pumpkinhead 

Waiting on the borderline

Don’t be scared, don’t be afraid

Don’t be scared, don’t be afraid

Don’t be scared, don’t be afraid

Don’t be scared, don’t be afraid

Verse 2

Don’t be afraid of them people

Don’t be afraid of the evil

They can mistreat us, but they’ll never take us from Jesus

He’ll never let them defeat us

They know that they’ll never beat us

God, washed away all my evil, turned me into a believer

You better believe it

Put some more time on my meter

I can not wait ‘till we meet Him

They can not kill us, stop us, or condemn us

They want us living like we ain’t the winners

They keep on tryna tell us that they’ll never help us ‘cause we all a bunch of dirty sinners

It go up, on my side

All this weight on my mind

Don’t you try, bring up my past ‘cause God erased my timeline (I’ll be fine)

Ready for war, I put it all up on the line

Too scared to fight then go let David and kill Goliath 

Walk through the valley, but the Lord is by my side

He heard my cry

Hold me down, hold me down, hold me down, hold me down

Hold me down, hold me down, hold me down, hold me down

Hold me down, hold me down, hold me down, hold me down

Hold me down, hold me down, hold me down, hold me down

Hold me down, hold me down, hold me down

[Speaker #2]

Please don’t be afraid, please don’t be afraid, be afraid

Please don’t be afraid

Don’t be scared, don’t be afraid 

Please don’t be afraid, please don’t be afraid, be afraid

Please don’t be afraid, please don’t be afraid, be afraid

Please don’t be afraid, please don’t be afraid, be afraid

Please don’t be afraid, please don’t be afraid, be afraid
