Best Hip-Hop Albums of 2012: ‘Gravity,’ Lecrae
Christian rap is often stigmatized as preachy music for the younger church sect, but you would be committing a sin if you didn’t take a good listen to Lecrae‘s ‘Gravity’ album. Sonically, the beats on the effort sound indistinguishable to what’s being heard in the mainstream. Lyrically, Lecrae touches on familiar subjects within the genre including drugs, poverty, violence, joblessness and death.
Songs like ‘Walk With Me’ (featuring Novel), ‘Violence,’ ‘Mayday’ (featuring Big K.R.I.T.) and ‘Tell the World’ are powerful testimonials that will easily fit alongside tracks by Lil Wayne, Waka Flocka Flame and Kendrick Lamar on any radio playlist. Yes, the album is that good.
If you want to hear some head-nodding bangers with inspirational content, check out Lecrae’s ‘Gravity’ — one of the best hip-hop albums of 2012.
