Current song favorites:

ITS A VIDEO NOW!
Lecrae - Christian Rapper, is releasing a Free-Mixtape this summer to outreach to the lost and broken in the Hip-Hop Culture or not.
READ THE LYRICS BELOW
First song release (free) is Church Clothes, the lyrics are from an outside perspective of a person who is wanting to be part of the Church but is pushed away or caused to stumble by all the hypocrisy within it. Truly, this song is extremely “real” and very strong in its message. This isn’t the “Background” Lecrae your mom fell in love with… this is the “hands dirty” - real life, in your face Lecrae that scares CCM people away from “Rap” in general. You won’t hear of this song on the family friendly radios, but you DEFINITELY take some tome out and listen to it.
If it offends… then he did the right thing:
Title track off of Lecrae’s new mixtape entitled Church Clothes.
(Produced by Wit.) Did my best with lyrics below:
R.I.P. to Medgar Evers/ R.I.P. to Dr. King
I ain’t tryna hate on my own kind/ But Al and Jesse don’t speak for me
I’m probably gon catch some flack mayne/ But I’ma swallow this pill like Pacman
Some of these folks won’t tell the truth/ Too busy tryna get them racks mayne
Church tryna rob my paychecks/ Choir members probably havin gay sex
Pastor manipulatin hurtin women/ I wonder what she’s gon say next
Bookstore pimpin them hope books/ Like God don’t know how broke looks
And tellin me that I’m gon reap a meal/ If I sow into these low crooks
Plus I know ol’ girl a freak/ Now how she singin a solo
I walked in the church wit a snapback/ And they tellin me that that’s a “no-no”?
That’s backwords, and I lack words/ For these actors called pastors
All these folks is hypocrits/ And that’s why I ain’t at church
Truthfully I’m just doin me/ And I don’t wanna face no scrutiny
As long as the church keep wildin out/ I can justify all my foolish deeds
Smokin weed, pourin up/ Keep that lean up in my cup
Maybe I could change the world/ But this porn on my laptop got me stuck
Yeah I know whats right from wrong/ But that there ain’t gon sell a song
I rather sell my soul then save it/ If that’s what make my money long
It better not be no real God/ With real hope, that heals hearts/ That shows me that I ain’t livin up/ To all the things that He put me here for
It better not be no real church/ Real saints, who pray hard/ And let me rock my snapback/ With the 501s and the J’s on/
It better not be no real folk/ Who don’t think that they better than you/ Straight or gay, drunk and high/ They walk through the cold weather wit chu
Nah we don’t wanna see that/ Cause that might mean “life change”/ That might mean I’m worth more/ Than money, cars, sex, and pipe dreams
Better not be no real Jesus/ Real forgiveness, for hurt folks/ If God gon take me as I am/ I guesss I already got on my Church Clothes
This song is sweet.
