Symbolyc One (S1), a platinum-selling producer who has worked with Eminem, Beyoncé, Kanye West and Lecrae, among others, revealed at the 2015 Dove Awards that he has collaborated with Lecrae on his next project.
“We locked in for two weeks,” S1 said. “It’s a lot I can’t say right now because it’s kind of real hidden, but just know that real soon you’ll be getting some new music from Lecrae.”
This new music could be Church Clothes 3.
Don Cannon, the DJ who hosted Lecrae’s first two Church Clothes mixtapes, said that the third installment of the series would “absolutely” happen — “maybe” by year’s end. Several months later, B&H Publishing Group claimed that Lecrae’s next retail album will release after it publishes his first book, Unashamed, on May 1, 2016.
Either, one, S1 is referring to a mixtape that will drop between now and Lecrae’s book release, two, plans have changed about when Lecrae’s retail album will drop in relation to his book, three, S1 is willing to define “real soon” as six months away or, four, the singles for the retail album are the “real soon” music and will come before the book.
