The most unexpected thing about spending 5 years making a film about what the Lord is doing in the life of someone else is that you can’t help but have the Lord do a work in your life as well.-Unashamed World
Lecrae has stepped out on the creative missionary field again. He is the main character of ‘Unashamed World‘, a documentary that centers on the entire 116 Clique — Tedashii, Sho Baraka, Trip Lee, Derek Minor, Andy Mineo and KB . Documentary specialist, Art Hooker, focuses on these men as the subjects of a film about what it means to live out your faith for the greater good. These are the rappers you have seen in various cyphers on BET and MTV and wondered just how you missed them.
The documentary details christian hip hop’s international stars in their trials and tribulations too. Hooker says artists from Africa, Norway, Germany and Egypt will be featured. He interviewed hundreds of people in addition to the 116 Clique for the project, including Propaganda, Thi’sl, Json, Da’ T.R.U.T.H., The Ambassador, Flame and other rappers. Pastors John Piper, Louie Giglio, Matt Chandler and Eric Mason are in the film as well.
Unashamed World is a film “for the fans, by the fans,” who contributed to its funding. Crowdsourcing has played a major role since its start, as fans designed its first T-shirt and poster. More opportunities for fans to participate in its release will be announced soon. We will keep you in the loop as those chances materialize.
Here is your first look at this stunning documentary.
