HIP-HOP | Lecrae 

With his 2012 album, "Gravity," Lecrae became the first hip-hop artist to win a Grammy for Best Gospel Album. The album had debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200, and Lecrae was catapulted into the mainstream consciousness. His seventh studio and latest album, "Anomaly," debuted at No. 1 on both the Billboard 200 and the Top Gospel Albums chart. This is a conscious rapper who has found unprecedented acclaim in both Christian music and mainstream rap — but Lecrae doesn't like to consider himself stuck on either side. "My music is not Christian — Lecrae is," he said in an interview with The Atlantic last year.

Lecrae will perform with Andy Mineo on Sunday, April 26, at the Auditorium Theatre, 885 East Main Street. 7 p.m. $26-$100.;
