The Grammy Award-winning rapper kicks off his “Destination Tour” in Columbia.
His 2014 release, “Anomaly,” became the first-ever album at the top of both the Billboard 200 and the gospel charts simultaneously. Lecrae, whose music is absent of swearing, has shared the stage with Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole, as well as hip-hop legends Wu-Tang Clan, Rakim and Common. This summer, he signed a major record deal with Columbia Records, so you’ll no doubt be hearing more of him.
