Columbia Records announced today the
signing of groundbreaking hip hop artist Lecrae (Lecrae Moore) in a deal with the
artist and his own label, Reach Records.
Lecrae’s breakthrough album Anomaly,
debuted at #1 on the coveted Billboard Top
200 Albums Chart, receiving universal
acclaim and making him a force in
mainstream hip hop. The Atlanta-based
artist, community leader, activist and entrepreneur has helped to revive the
genre’s conscious sensibility with his
message of inspiration.
Nominated for multiple awards throughout
his career, Lecrae has blazed an
unchartered path, winning two Grammy
Awards. His hit single “All I Need Is You,”
garnered across-the-board acclaim, earning
a 2015 Grammy nomination for Best Rap Performance.
Rolling Stone Magazine ranked Anomaly –
Lecrae’s 7th album to date – at #12 on their
list of the Best 40 Albums Of The Year.
Lecrae has shared the stage with hip-hop
legends Wu-Tang Clan, Rakim and Common,
as well as his contemporaries Kendrick
Lamar, J. Cole and Juicy J. He has co-
headlined some of the best-selling tours in
the U.S., according to Pollstar, and Lecrae’s call for redemption through positive change
has placed him on the forefront of causes
close to his heart, with the artist referring to
himself as a ‘social anthropologist’ seeking
the most authentic connection possible with
the fans around the world who embrace his music.
