Lecrae speaks of hip-hop's relevance

NASHVILLE (BP) -- Rap music, as hip-hop artist Lecrae Moore puts it, is a vocalized expression of hip-hop culture that permeates all ethnicities and racial boundaries. Christians should embrace being missionaries in today's culture, Lecrae said, rather than isolating and creating an alternative subculture.

The Grammy Award-winning artist, ministry leader, producer and actor -- who uses only his first name as his stage name -- spoke about his art and ministry calling on "The Exchange," a weekly LifeWay Christian Resources' webcast. Eric Geiger, LifeWay's vice president of church resources, interviewed Lecrae for the segment.

"The urban culture sees [hip hop] artists as modern-day philosophers -- people they take their cues from, learn different things from," Lecrae said.
