Lecrae proudly stands at the nexus of the sacred and the secular as he releases Church Clothes 4, choosing this lane shamelessly. No one has been able to surpass the heights that Lecrae has achieved by bringing CHH into the mainstream and establishing his feet simultaneously in the street and the Church without compromising in the 10 years since the first Church Clothes mixtape (presented by DJ Don Cannon) was released in 2012. The music for the original Church Clothes was downloaded more than 100,000 times in less than 48 hours, despite the criticism that he should have chosen a side while the detractors criticized him for it.
He puts the good and the bad together once more on November 4th, and this time it’s for Church Clothes 4, the final mixtape in the series! As he considers Romans 116, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God that delivers salvation to EVERYONE who believes, first to the Jew, then to the Gentile! “, he keeps his shameless demeanor. putting emphasis on the fact that his music is for everyone, not just believers.
In Episode 2 of his Church Clothes TV short airing on YouTube, Lecrae explains, “I’ve always been a combination of my roots and my faith. I love God but I grew up in hip-hop and the hood. People always want to put me in one camp or the other. Truth is you (with me), you can’t have the righteous without the ratchet. They’re two sides of the same coin.”
