Popular hip-hop artist and Reach Records founder Lecrae sat down with CNN after his passionate plea for social justice at the 2016 BET Hip Hop Awards, to discuss faith and politics in relation to being a successful black man in America.
“Christian is a noun; Christian is a person. I function, I live life as a Christian and me living life as a Christian does not mean I’m a sanitized person. It means that I readily admit that I’m a jacked up person and I need a savior,” Lecrae said on a CNN Politics segment.
“Issues are homogenized and so to be a Christian, I’m either this staunch conservative Republican or I’m this tree hugging liberal,” Lecrae continued, speaking of his faith. “I think I have to embody it, employ it and live it and hopefully they’ll get what I’m saying.”
