Lecrae

Lecrae reveals in his new book, Unashamed that rappers Tupac and Ice Cube were his idols when he was craving acceptance and being led astray by a gang-banging uncle.

The Reach Records founder and Academy Award winner took to Facebook Sunday to share an excerpt from the book, which is set to release on Tuesday.

“I was hungry for male attention, and Uncle Chris offered a father-like relationship. I was hungry for acceptance, and Uncle Chris symbolized the promise of a family-like community. And I had idolized gangsta rappers like Tupac and Ice Cube and movies like ‘Boyz In the Hood’ and ‘Menace to Society.’
