In a recent video, Lecrae answered a question asking, “Is Christian Hip Hop Dead?” His immediate response was “why even answer a question like that?” He then broke down into his origins in it and the time when it was this huge “groundswell.”

He said there were times when there were tours, award shows, and more, but now that doesn’t seem to be happening as much.

Lecrae then admitted that he contributed to the ambiguity of people not knowing what CHH is. “I didn’t want to be boxed in…I was trying to stretch my arms,” he said. “It caused a lot of confusion, and I take full ownership of that.”

“Is CHH dead? I don’t think it is” he explained. Crae believes the new generation should look to the old generation and see the groundwork and the footsteps paved before them.

He then talks about the current path that it’s on and how it can and will strive in the future.
