9."Just Like You" (Lecrae gets honest)
While most people would point to Rehab's other transcendent cut "Background", this track was arguably more inﬂuential. This autobiographical take of Lecrae's life was presented in a more personal way than we had previously heard from him. Instead of solely pointing towards the errors of modern cultural worldview, Lecrae essentially puts himself on trial. He unpacks his inﬂuences in the ﬁrst 2 verses, then confronts his depravity/need for a Savior in the 3rd. It is not a surprise that this was used as an instrumental for the "Man Up" movie trailer. This song is like a movie all by itself. The track also was a bridge to two different styles of Lecrae's lyrical articulation: theological and sociological. Mixed together the ﬁnal product is a beautiful blend of life and doctrine.
