Rehab By Lecrae

I believe one of the most genuine and committed Christian rap artists today is Lecrae. He brings a fresh sound with rich, honest lyrics that hit straight to the heart and point directly to Jesus. His newly released album, Rehab, speaks to me both musically and lyrically. It's what hot on my iPod right now.

Living in a culture where addiction has become commonplace and recovery is a hot buzzword, and with the popularity of reality TV shows such as Intervention and Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, I think the title of Lecrae's album is quite interesting as well as timely. Truthfully, there are many of us who need the kind of "rehab" that only Jesus can give. Even those of us who call ourselves Christians. 

One of my favorite song off the album is, "Background." It speaks of how we can get in God's way when we try to take our own center stage. I love these lyrics:

If you need me I'll be stage right 
Praying the whole world will start embracing stage fright 
So let me fall back and stop giving my suggestions 
'Cause when I follow my obsessions I end up confessing 
That I'm not that impressive
Matter of fact I'm who I are
A trail of stardust leading to the Super Star.

I could play the background. 
Cause I know sometimes I get in the way. 
So won't You take, lead, lead, lead. 
And I could play background and You could take the lead.

I love Lecrae and his music. Most of all, I love his message; it's all about Him.
