It’s a one-two punch from Lecrae this week.
The Christian rapper’s latest album, Anomaly, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart this week, becoming the first album to top both the Gospel Albums and Billboard 200. As a thank you to fans, the rapper’s label, Reach Records, released a new song, “Non-Fiction” on Soundcloud.
As with Anomaly, “Non-Fiction” has seen instant success. The track generated buzz on Twitter and sky-rocketed to the top of the Billboard Twitter Trending 140 early Thursday, Sept. 18.
Lecrae’s new song traces the rapper’s career from college graduation to the success of his last album, the Grammy-Award winning Gravity. Lecrae also shares anecdotes behind creating his albums Real Talk and Rebel, and finding a place for Christian hip-hop despite criticism (“You ain’t Lil Wayne – you a lame”).
For those hunting for a third dose of Lecrae, the rapper will make an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Thursday, Sept. 18.
