American Hip Hop rapper, Lecrae is currently gearing up for his concert in Uganda which was confirmed weeks after the release of his newest album, All Things Work Together.
This June, the 38-year-old is expected to minister before multitudes at Lugogo Hockey grounds and, as this website revealed earlier, tickets are already on sale online at mticket.252.co.ug among other platforms.
On his newest album, the rapper says he “finally felt the freedom to say everything,” addressing a range of topics from his experience as a Christian in the rap sphere, to battling depression and his “Blessings.”
Lecrae spoke with Pastor Steve Carter at Willow Creek Community Church – USA over the weekend about the name of his new album, explaining to the audience it was a reminder of the truth of Romans 8:28 in a time when he desperately needed it.
He said, “What I needed to know in the same way was that if I took my tears, if I took my depression, if I took my anxiety and my fear and my hurt, and I mixed it together, that God could refine that and make something good out of it.”
Lecrae explained that he didn’t title the album that verse simply out of passion, but “I needed to believe this verse,” he said
Still in regard to the album, Billboard sat down with Lecrae, and it is here that he opened up about what the album has taught him.
“I’ve learned that I can make it through the ugliest storm and come out better because I really didn’t know how I was going to end up and obviously I still have some wounds and scars and I’m still growing, God is still restoring a lot of me but I realized that God is faithful too. No matter how bad you mess up, God loves you and there’s nothing you can do about it,” he said.
What does the Hip-Hop star hope Christians can take away from this album?
“I hope that they understand there is hope in the chaos. I hope that they get that God loves them and there is nothing they can do about it – it’s an unrelenting pursuit of you – and I want people to feel that. I want people to feel that they can make it, I don’t care how crazy it gets, we are resilient people and I want people to know that,” he told BillBoard.
Lecrae’s ‘All things work Together’ (ATWT) concert in Uganda is slated for 8 June, 2018.
