Lecrae Recalls His Hip-Hop Beginnings on ‘Non-Fiction’
On the song, the spiritual wordsmith drops straight facts about his rise in the rap game. From his early days rapping in the 'hood to releasing his first independent album, he recalls his ups and downs.
"I didn't want to blow up / I just want to give them Jesus / And starting up Reach Records is I what I needed," he raps, adding, "But I did it and I was on a mission / And little by little a couple of them would get it / Was rapping in the 'hood and folks broke down cryin' / That's when I knew this was bigger than me, bigger than rhymin'."
