Outspoken Christian rapper Lecrae will be releasing a new book, titled Unashamed sometime next year in which he reveals details about his childhood abuse, and struggles with drugs, alcoholism, bouts of depression and a suicide attempt.
“I am writing Unashamed for all those who don’t know who they are, who feel confined by the labels given to them,” Lecrae said in a press release shared with The Christian Post.
Unashamed will chronicle Lecrae’s life story and focus on the rapper maintaining his Christian faith in a world that’s hostile to the Gospel.
“As an artist my ambition is to make honest music, and I feel the same way about writing this book,” he said. “I want to be honest about where I’ve come from and what I’ve learned along the way. I want to influence culture, to help catalyze and inspire, and help other people find understanding. If they find some inspiration and some clarity for their own lives, as they follow my journey, then I will have succeeded.”
