Lecrae Previews ‘Unashamed’ Book with Video Clips & Table of Contents; ‘Jesus to All of My Haters’
Reach Records rapper Lecrae has been promoting his upcoming book Unashamed the last few days with little social media clips that leave the viewer clamoring for more.
Lecrae just released a new video clip that has him quoting the lyrics of “Fear” from his “Anomaly” album. Then he mixes lyrics from the first and third verse to form a cohesive thought onto why is is not ashamed.
See the clip below:
“I honestly grow insecure as I get older
Cuz’ even when you hot there comes a day when you get colder
Comes a day when you slower, time is taking its toll
45 on the back of the jersey upon your soul
I’m scared of letting go, I don’t know what the future holds
My nightmares are having nightmares
I’m quite scared of what’s right and fair
How I fear an eternity
Will I hear well done when he turn to me?
Will I hear you care too much about
All this stuff that really don’t matter?
You chase the wind and you don’t want it
Got to the top of a 2 foot ladder
What’s after I can capture all this mess my heart was after?
Will I end up empty-handed when I stand before my master?
Did I master the mathematics of a passive disaster?
Add in my selfish ambition
All the while, subtracting what matters
I don’t know”
“I’m scared of falling and failing
In front of all of my foes
And I feel some friends are unfaithful
So, I keep my small circle closed
I don’t want no handouts or favors, no functional saviors
I’ma tell that truth till it kill me
I’m chilling with my Creator
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus to all of my haters
For the ones that think I forgot him
And the ones who won’t let me say
I ain’t scared no mo'”
On December 28 he first posted a picture of the table of contents here.
These were followed by the below videos:
Unashamed is set to hit bookstores on May 3, 2016, and is currently available for pre-order on Amazon.
“I think a book will help people understand not only the method to my madness but my heart,” said Lecrae to Rapzilla last year. “I also want the book to reveal in a lot of ways the faith that I hold and why I believe what I believe.”
Watch the interview below:
“I am writing ‘Unashamed’ for all those who don’t know who they are, who feel confined by the labels given to them,” Lecrae shared in a press release, “This is for the outsiders looking for peace within.”
He continued, “As an artist, my ambition is to make honest music, and I feel the same way about writing this book. I want to be honest about where I’ve come from and what I’ve learned along the way. I want to influence culture, to help catalyze and inspire, and help other people find understanding. If they find some inspiration and some clarity for their own lives, as they follow my journey, then I will have succeeded.”
The content of Lecrae’s book will focus on the hardships of the artist’s life which include: alcoholism, abuse, drugs, abortion, and an unsuccessful suicide attempt.
Through the trials of his life, the emcee wishes to convey the hope and peace he has found in Jesus as he continues to take his message beyond the walls of the church and reach unbelievers.
