Transformed by God's love and forgiveness, Lecrae now shares his life openly in his music. While embracing his weaknesses and difficult past, he clings to the hope and redemption Jesus offers. Unashamed is a remarkable testimony of God's boundless love, and the power of the Gospel to change lives.

Publisher's Description

If you live for people's acceptance, you'll die from their rejection.

Two-time Grammy winning rap artist, Lecrae, learned this lesson through more than his share of adversity—childhood abuse, drugs and alcoholism, a stint in rehab, an abortion, and an unsuccessful suicide attempt.

Along the way, Lecrae attained an unwavering faith in Jesus and began looking to God for affirmation. Now as a chart-topping industry anomaly, he has learned to ignore the haters and make peace with his craft. The rap artist holds nothing back as he divulges the most sensitive details of his life, answers his critics, shares intimate handwritten journal entries, and powerfully models how to be a Christian in a secular age.

This is the story of one man's journey to faith and freedom.

Editorial Reviews

"Lecrae’s story is as real as it gets. The rawness, pain, and brutal honesty make it a tremendously gripping read, but the sheer beauty of his journey to redemption makes it something you’ll want to share with others, and I certainly hope you will. This book will change lives."

Eric Metaxas, New York Times Bestselling author of Bonhoeffer and Miracles
 

"Knowing Lecrae's unique story and gifts, this book has been a long time coming and is essential to not only those interested in his music and hip-hop, but also those wanting to better understand the intersection between faith and culture and what it looks like to be in the world but not of it."

Matt Chandler, lead Pastor of The Village Church, President of the Acts 29, author of The Mingling of Souls
 

"This is an artistic coming-of-age story with all the brokenness and beauty of our American reality and our Christian hope. It's not just the story of how a boy became a man, or how a lost soul found faith, but how an artist found his voice. There's so much here for those who care about the intersection of deep faith with great art. Lecrae is showing the rest of us how it is done."

Andy Crouch, executive editor, Christianity Today, author of Culture Making
 

"If you love beautiful music, powerful stories, or the Lord Jesus Christ, you will not be able to put this book down. Lecrae doesn't hold back in Unashamed; there is no "Christian-ese" or posturing in this memoir. Instead, he takes the reader through his grace-filled journey from abandonment to community, from brokenness to wholeness, from a life lost in the world to one found in the arms of God. This must-read book is for hip-hop heads and believers, artists and seekers, and anyone who wants to know more about one of the most compelling artists of our time. I expect that millions of people will read this book, discover more about Lecrae, and be inspired to walk with Jesus themselves, unashamed."

Joshua DuBois, spiritual advisor to President Obama, author of The President's Devotional, and founder of Values Partnerships

"Historically, hip-hop has been used to express sexuality, frustration, materialism, and even violence. But this is the amazing story of how one brilliant young artist, my friend Lecrae, transformed a powerful music style into a tool for sharing God’s love, fulfilling God’s purposes, and glorifying God’s name.
 
I love and respect Lecrae because of his authenticity and his courage. His raw lyrics are snapshots from his own heart and God has used his honesty to reach audiences who’d never listen to so-called 'church' music. In order to be what God wants him to be, Lecrae has been willing to push limits and break through boundaries. He’s a modern-day prophet, purpose-driven rather than popularity-driven, or prosperity-driven.
 
You’ve heard his music; now you can learn about his life’s experiences that made Lecrae the great Christian artist and leader he is today. I promise you, regardless of the kind of music you listen to, you’ll love this book."
 
Rick Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Life and The Hope You Need

"From extreme humble beginnings to what many would describe as a dream platform, Lecrae puts his journey in perspective. He recognizes all too well the identity crisis and this generation’s need to be unashamed of the gospel. I recommend this book for whomever is interested in seeing how God is authoring the journey of a fatherless generation in need of the navigator."

Eric Mason, lead pastor, Epiphany Fellowship, author of Unleashed

"Honest. Rare. Freeing. Lecrae is one of the most talented people I know. His story will leave you inspired and challenged. Unashamed reminds us just how powerful the Gospel is. Jesus turns our scars into our stories. This is a story you will want to read!"

Louie Giglio, Passion City Church / Passion Conferences, author of The Comeback


"Lecrae has never fit in any boxes, and in this book he once again breaks the mold to create an identity all his own—the hip hop artist as worldview thinker. The book starts by relating the emotionally turbulent, completely absorbing story of his life, and ends by presenting his innovative thoughts on a Christian worldview approach to hip hop. Lecrae continues to be a delightfully unpredictable anomaly."

Nancy Pearcey, author, Total Truth and Finding Truth

"It's a rare privilege to see a prophetic story unfold before your very eyes. When it does, you pay attention. Lecrae's Unashamed gives us the raw account of a rare leader stirred by the heart of God to shape culture by creating it."

Gabe Lyons, Q, author of Good Faith

    This book was everything I expected and more. I consider myself as one of Lecrae's biggest fans (if not the biggest), so I know pretty much everything about him, yet this book really delves deep. Nothing is hidden, and the honesty just makes you appreciate the man behind the music and how far God has brought him.

    Lacrea's music is great, but it was his story that touched me deeply. His honesty made me wince, cringe and cry. He fully shares his story, every ugly and beautiful detail. This book will help you understand how important even the ugly parts of your story are. Most importantly, he tells us repentence is a life long act. As he said in his book, when a baby falls, we comfort him, then cheer him on as he tries again. What a perfect analogy of the life every Christian needs to have for themselves and other believers. You will be touched, challenged and have your eyes opened to truths in a fresh and profound way.

    I first saw Lecrae in concert at the Maybee Center in Tulsa in 2012. I'd never heard of him before; and I love contemporary Christian music. The strong message in his songs, the music, and his gifted way to proclaim the message of Christ through hip hop style music - well the crowd was filled to overflowing from the blessings of his ministry and his ministry gift. I soon bought his cd's and I've really never been the same since. He's a part of the body of Christ that has so blessed and touched me. It showed me God can bring something good out of a bad thing - I'd always considered all hip-hop music as bad or evil. I bought and listed to almost of all Lecrae's music cd's. He quickly became my favorite Christian artist and still is.

    So I was very excited about purchasing and reading his book. I bought it and read it in 7 days (that's fast for me). I did not realize that many of his songs were birthed out of true, real life experiences he's had. I should have known that.

    Anyway, I loved the book. It is, like his songs, very articulate, easy to read, his writing like his lyrics has a rhythm to it! I strongly recommend the book for anyone who likes Christian music. It is a book where Lecrae is very open about his past mistakes even as a Christian. And it goes on to say how he learned from his mistakes, and has learned to hear from God, and fear and follow God in the decisions he makes. I will read it a second time soon. I strongly recommend giving this as a gift to those you're trying to influence to Christ too!

    Thanks Lecrae for being transparent with the Body of Christ. Thanks for obeying your heavenly Father. I pray that God will continue to use Lecrae to bring the light of Jesus Christ to the dark places in this world.
