Lecrae

Thursday, September 27, Ogden Theatre, 888-929-7849.

Holy hip-hop star Lecrae resides in Atlanta now, but the MC spent his early teens in Denver, so this is still a hometown show. The Dove Award winner and Grammy nominee has put in years of persistent grinding, which has helped him become one of the few gospel rappers to achieve meaningful mainstream crossover appeal. He made a noteworthy appearance in a cypher at the 2011 BET Awards, and Don Cannon hosted his last mixtape, Church Clothes, which was downloaded 100,000 times in its first 48 hours. On his highly anticipated new record, Gravity, Lecrae dissects the hollow pursuit of wealth, warns of society's ills and counts his blessings with deft lyricism. Demonstrating his ability to bridge the secular and the sacred, the record has cameos from acts like Big K.R.I.T. as well as the gospel-oriented Mali Music, among others.
