If you live for people’s acceptance, you’ll die from their rejection.

Two-time Grammy winning rap artist, Lecrae, learned this lesson through more than his share of adversity—childhood abuse, drugs and alcoholism, a stint in rehab, an abortion, and an unsuccessful suicide attempt.

Along the way, Lecrae attained an unwavering faith in Jesus and began looking to God for affirmation. Now as a chart-topping industry anomaly, he has learned to ignore the haters and make peace with his craft. The rap artist holds nothing back as he divulges the most sensitive details of his life, answers his critics, shares intimate handwritten journal entries, and powerfully models how to be Christian in a secular age.

This is the story of one man’s journey to faith and freedom.

THOUGHTS
I’ve never been a fan of  hip-hop and had never heard of Lecrae Moore before seeing this book. To be honest, I never really gave Christian hip-hop a chance because of the few times I’ve heard secular hip-hop. Don’t like it at all. But, I’d be more open to listening to Christian hip-hop after listening to this audiobook.  Each chapter began with a sample of one of his songs. Because of the messages  in them, I think I may enjoy it.

Anyway…Wow! What a great testimony! Lecrae had a tough life and had to grow up way faster than he should have. He finally got the life he wanted, but it was a long hard battle, sometimes he hindered himself.

Whether you like Christian hip hop or not, this is an interesting book. It’s short, but his story is huge! And even if I never become a fan of Christian hip-hop, I am a fan of Lecrae Moore!

Unashamed by Lecrae Moore”

  1. I didn’t realize there’s Christian hip hop. His story sounds interesting.

  2. A nice review!

  3. I have to admit that I didn’t know there was such a thing as Christian hip hop!

  4. Sounds like a good book!

  5. I hear more hip hop than I care to from the county I live in. Why does it always have to blare so loudly?! I never hear Mozart blasting from passing cars.

    Yeah ok….rant over. I didn’t know there was a christian hip hop either. I’m always learning something new.

    • I agree Tina! Secular hip hop is usually played way to loud and has vulgar lyrics and attitude toward women. Christian hip hop on the other hand has a positive message.

  6. Being yourself is hard these days… We all should reject haters.
