Gravity by Lecrae →
Owen Strachan writing for The Gospel Coalition:
These brief remarks aside, Gravity accomplishes what it sets out to do. It’s a superbly crafted album that will appeal to Christians because of its content and to non-Christians because of its quality (and, I’m sure, vice versa). With many others, I’m stunned to see how far Christian hip-hop has come and how much God is blessing it in our day. From the forgotten child to the heir of evangelical musical influence in the broader culture—such is Christian hip-hop’s journey these last few decades.
Owen’s review of Lecrae’s new album is pretty spot on. I definitely agree about it being the most important Christian rap album of all time.
I bought Gravity on release night and have had it on repeat ever since. If you pick it up, go for the deluxe version. It comes with two songs that are some of my favorites on the album. It also includes No Regrets, which was my favorite song on his last mix-tape Church Clothes.
However, the best songs are Tell The World and Lucky Ones.
