Two of the most popular, hit-making, award-winning rap artists, Lecrae and Andy Mineo have joined together for this tour.
Lecrae made a conscious decision to commit his life to Christ, but regards himself as an artist, not a preacher. As such he began living his faith by becoming a musical entrepreneur, co-founding Reach Records at age 25 (through which he released his first album, Real Talk) and later ReachLife Ministries, a non-profit that lasted ten years, which equipped local Christian leaders with tools, media, curriculum and conferences based on Biblical teachings yet relevant to hip-hop culture.
Surging or insurgent – depending on your point of view – Lecrae is blessed with a visionary verbal arsenal that has piloted a unique career trajectory defying the typical hip hop storyline. His incredible journey includes two Grammys, a history-making #1 album with 2014’s masterful Anomaly (topped multiple categories, including the Billboard 200 and is RIAA Gold certified), headlining the 2016 “Destination Tour,” reeling off a New York Times Bestseller (2017’s riveting memoir Unashamed), and a breakthrough spoken word performance at the BET Hip Hop Awards last fall that had the twittersphere heralding his “Arrival” as a truth-telling firebrand. BET hailed it as an “epic poem of necessary affirmations.” Such authenticity has been the hallmark of his seven studio albums and multiple mixtapes, now nearing the two million mark in sales, with the acclaimed artist winning a Billboard Music Award, multiple BET, Soul Train, and Dove awards, and even an Honorary Doctorate of Music. He is now partnered with Columbia Records (expanding his creative outreach). Lecrae is currently working on a new album, as well as preparing for his 2018 “Better Late Than Never Tour” with Andy Mineo and others.
The Italian-American and Syracuse, New York native Andy Mineo is a unique Christian hip-hop artist and producer, as well as a TV and music video director, now based in New York City. His faith came early in life: during the summer after 7th grade he went to a Christian camp where his sister was working as a counselor, was exposed to the gospel, and formally converted. Mineo had an upbringing very similar to Lecrae’s: single mom, mostly-absent father, poor, and emotionally insecure. By the time he entered high school he’d lost his Christian ties and drifted from his faith, but music kept him largely grounded. Then, during his first year at the City College of New York (CCNY), Mineo met the music producer Alex Medina and through him the urban evangelism project T.R.U.C.E. Mineo had already been in a rap group that often opened for major acts, along with members of the underground scene. But it was hearing the song “Price Tag” by Da’T.R.U.T.H. that motivated Mineo to rededicate his life to Christ.
