Born on October 9, 1979 in Houston, Texas, Lecrae Moore was raised by a poor single mother who exposed him to drugs. Moving to several places throughout his upbringing, he was able to witness various cultures and backgrounds, sad to say he idolized and adapted the street life. By 16 years old he was drinking, doing drugs, stealing and fighting, but was soon transformed into a newborn Christian upon attending a Christian conference led by James White. He led a totally different life since then, a Christ-centered life. He began writing lyrics about his ups and downs and at 25, he signed to Reach Records and immediately released his debut album entitled "Real Talk".

Witnessing firsthand how the set had positively impacted people in showbiz and broader, he began working on a follow-up. Titled "After the Music Stops" (2006), the sophomore record was commercially success and surpassed his debut album by reaching no. 5 on the Billboard Gospel Album charts. It was also nominated for the Dove Awards and spawned hit single "Jesus Muzik". Two years later, Lecrae occupied Billboard charts and iTunes with his third album "Rebel" which remained on the Gospel charts for 78 weeks straight. It thus became the first Christian hip-hop album to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Gospel chart.
