Lecrae lost to Kendrick Lamar at the 2015 Grammy Awards in the Best Rap Performance category on Sunday.

The Recording Academy had nominated Lecrae for his song “All I Need Is You,” track No. 15 of his seventh studio album Anomaly.

As Rapzilla previously noted, Lecrae entered this category as a major underdog. Eminem began the event with 13 Grammy Awards while Drake, Kendrick Lamar and Childish Gambino also had significantly larger mainstream hip-hop brands.

Lecrae’s Reach Records label mate Trip Lee admitted that edging them sounded “impossible.” Houston hip-hop legend Bun B, who Lecrae featured on a Church Clothes 2 interlude and is a two-time nominee for Best Rap Performance, believed otherwise. He told Rapzilla two weeks ago that he predicted a Lecrae victory, despite the stiff competition.

Christian hip-hop pioneers The Ambassador and Grits also chatted with Rapzilla this weekend about what a Lecrae win would’ve meant for the subgenre.

Earlier on Sunday, Lecrae won the Grammy for Best Contemporary Christian Performance/Song and lost against Smokie Norful for Best Gospel Performance/Song.
