Lecrae Moore was born in the south side of Houston, Texas, but lived most of his youth in Denver and San Diego. He currently resides in Memphis, Tennessee. Lecrae provides a southern rap style to Cross Movement. With no ambitions of being the next big thing or dreams of fame and wealth, Lecrae has stated that he simply wants to point listeners in the direction of the Cross. After realizing that he was living a "lifestyle of excessive sin," Lecrae gave his life to Christ at the age of 19. Though rapping was only a hobby to him, Lecrae's lyrics began to reflect his new life in Christ. After being highly influenced by the Cross Movement and being discipled by local seminary students, Lecrae began to use his music for ministry purposes. He has now made Dallas his local mission field. If he's not hosting hip-hop-oriented youth events in the heart of the inner city or witnessing on the streets in Dallas's club district, he's fellowshipping with the 1:16 Clique or his Plumbline College ministry family. Ranging from campus ministry to three weekends a month at a local juvenile detention center, Lecrae teaches with talks and reaches with rhymes. Lecrae was the first hip-hop artist to sign with Reach Records. His debut album is entitled Real Talk. His second album was titled After The Music Stops, and he just recently released his third album titled Rebel. He also married his college sweetheart, Darragh, who is expecting a child later this year.Lecrae has an exclusive licensing deal with both Reach Records and Cross Movement Records. He defines his mission in a nutshell with the statement that he wants “to digest theology and spit it back out so the streets can digest it.” He also uses the word "Krunk" to refer to a spiritual high felt through Christ.
