SHOTS FIRED! Okay, so full disclosure, I don’t keep up with hip hop at all, so when I heard that songs like this exist, I was baffled. I’m familiar with the genre of Christian Rap, but to tell me this song falls under that umbrella without listening to the lyrics, I would call you crazy (or Lecrae-crae). Lecrae draws elements from some heavy hitters and no doubt steps on some toes in the process. His message in this song is simple, we’re better than this. We can do better than the garbage we are producing, we can do better than boasting about our money, cars, and women, we can do better than just seeking worldly pleasures. Lecrae chooses to talk about things that matter while pointing the finger at the rap industry and how they choose to talk about “Nuthin.” Enjoy and aim higher!
