Lecrae Moore – Hip-hop hope?
From World Magazine :
This year, Christian hip-hop artist Lecrae Moore, 32, earned two Dove Awards-Rap/Hip-Hop Song of the Year and Album of the Year. Fifteen years ago, he was far more likely to earn prison sentences.
Raised in south Houston by a single mom, Moore never met his drug-addicted dad. By 16 he was on drugs, in street fights, and on a gang list. His friends nicknamed him “Crazy ‘Crae” and his mom, despairing for her son, urged him to read the Bible—but he ripped out the pages and stomped them. Feeling empty, he turned to alcohol, sex, and dealing drugs.
