Reach Records founder, beloved hip-hop artist, entrepreneur and social activist, Lecrae takes an even deeper journey into the Restoration ecosystem with “Self Discovery,” accompanied by an amazing visual.
During his VEVO Ctrl.At.Home Live Session, filmed at the National Center for Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta, GA, Lecrae reflected on the personal restoration journey that had him questioning his faith. “I went through a mental, emotional, and spiritual breakdown that took me off solid ground. It was on ‘Self Discovery’ that I realized that my relationship with God needed to be just that, relational! It really wasn’t my devotion to God that got me where I am, but his devotion to me.”
On “Self Discovery,” Lecrae continues the very personal journey he embarked on two years ago when he discovered through AncestryDNA’s historic research that his grandmother was enslaved at nine years old and was likely taken from the Democratic Republic of Congo. In a 2018 social post, he shared a scan of the U.S. Census Ledger of Slave Inhabitants, from a county in Arkansas dated September 25, 1860 which included the names of the slave owners as well as the number of people they enslaved.
