Acclaimed Christian rapper Lecrae and producer Zaytoven, are reaching new heights following the release of their brand-new collaboration Let the Trap Say Amen. On its June 22 debut, the duo’s new album sky-rocketed to No. 2 on iTunes’ Hip-Hop Albums chart and No. 7 overall on the Top 100 Albums chart, and on Thursday the album was reported to have achieved No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Christian Album chart for July 7.
Let The Trap Say Amen is Lecrae’s eighth No. 1 Top Christian Album project, and Zaytoven’s first appearance on the chart. The Atlanta-based duo recently told Billboard in an interview that it was their love for blues and gospel inspired their partnership.
“It’s like the blues, man. Blues and gospel. You just feel it, and do it,” Lecrae said. “I think of people like Ray Charles, Otis Redding and Isaac Hayes. They all came out of the South, and they followed a certain tradition and energy.”
