Lecrae sits down with Hard Knock TV’s Nick Huff Barili for an in-depth interview. Lecrae starts the interview off by addressing being labeled Christian hip hop instead of just a hip hop artist and preconceptions people have about him because he raps about Jesus. The interview continues with him explaining the meaning behind the track Chase That and after performs a verse from it. When asked who he is currently listening to he mentions Lupe, Kendrick Lamar, J Cole and Big K.R.I.T saying he appreciated rappers with substance because radio these days just has people feeling like life is just about the club (co-sign that statement!!!). Lecrae goes on about not having positive male role models growing up and now wanting to be that person for others as he is working with youth and kids in prison. Part 1 of this interview ends with Lecrae talking about Jeremy Lin who listens to him before the game.
