‘Lecrae’ Devaughn Moore
Lecrae Devaughn Moore, mononymously known as Lecrae, is an American Christian hip hop artist, songwriter, record producer and actor.
As a child, hip hop artist Lecrae’s world was void of good role models. Growing up with a single mom, he would watch rap videos at his grandmother’s house and developed an ability to rap himself. Yet he wrestled with insignificance, having never met his father and enduring a life of abuse and neglect. He sought to fill that void by surrounding himself with gangsters.
Before long, Lecrae was embroiled in a world filled with drugs, theft, alcohol, and gang activity. “I didn’t fit in anywhere. I was just a misfit of a person.”
Little did he know that his view on life would soon be jolted, opening his eyes to the one who valued his life as significant. The one who cared enough to die for him. The one who is behind his music.
