Lecrae – 

Who is Lecrae? He has the no. 1 album in the United States. That album, Anomaly, is classified as Christian rap, because he’s widely thought of as a Christian rapper.Lecrae

Not a rapper who is Christian, but a Christian rapper.

In addition to topping the Billboard 200, Anomaly holds the no. 1 spot on the gospel charts (his sixth album to do so) and the no. 1 spot on the Christian charts (his fifth album to do so). He is the first person to pull off this feat. And it very much is that: a feat.

The success of Anomaly is the latest evidence of a noticeable trend. Three Christian-centric films released this year — God’s Not DeadSon of God, and Heaven Is for Real — pulled in stunning box-office returns, currently the 33rd-, 34th-, and 24th-highest-grossing films of 2014, respectively. It’s clear there is a market for Chrstian-themed pop culture.
