Lecrae "Church Clothes 2" Release Date, Cover Art, Tracklisting & Stream

The Reach Records founder revealed the cover art for "Church Clothes 2" on Friday's episode of BET's 106 & Park. B.o.B, Boi-1da, David Banner, Paul Wall, and Kevin Ross have confirmed credits on the mixtape.

Lecrae has announced new information on his forthcoming project, Church Clothes 2.

The Houston, Texas-born emcee said on BET's "106 & Park" that the mixtape, his second, is scheduled for a November 7 release. He says that the collection of records will include production by Boi-1da, David Banner, and KE On The Track, among others. Crae premiered his new single "I'm Turnt" from Church Clothes 2 on 106 & Park as well. Church Clothes 2 is hosted by DJ Don Cannon like the first installment of the series. 

When asked what makes Church Clothes 1 different from volume 2, Lecrae says that he has unique content and matured as an artist during the process of Church Clothes 2

"Well you know, one is just maturity," Lecrae said in an interview with BET. "As I have matured as a person, you get to hear the growth of me as an artist. Two, is a lot more comfortability in my own skin and getting to say some of the things that I will uniquely say but great production, got David Banner and Boi-1da on there. Features from Paul Wall, B.o.B and Kevin Ross, it's going to be a good situation."

On "106 & Park Backstage," the Grammy Award-winning rapper explained why he decided to go the mixtape route instead of doing an album. 

"I was at SXSW and a lot of people ran up to me like 'Lecrae, Lecrae, Lecrae,' and a lot of the feedback I got was that they found about me through the mixtape [Church Clothes 1]," the rapper said. "Even though I have been doing this for a while, that mixtape really helped people kind of taste and see what I'm about. Part 2 of the mixtape just allows you to do some stuff that you wouldn't normally do on the album. You can just rap. Nothing but rapping and that's it and scale down production if you want to so that's really why I did it." 

Lecrae says that he has conversations about life and faith with many industry professionals. 

"Oh man, lots of guys. Whoever wants to go there, we go there," the rapper explains. "At the end of the day, I think a lot of people got to understand that rappers are people. Artists are people and people wrestle with all types of issues and they have questions about stuff. Anybody who I've had conversations with, everybody from The Game, to K.R.I.T. [Big K.R.I.T.], to Kendrick [Kendrick Lamar], it's not like 'Hey man, so how was your performance today.' It's just life and so on and so forth. So sometimes faith comes up and sometimes other aspects of life come up." 

Lecrae released his Grammy award-winning album, Gravityin September of 2012 through his Reach Records imprint. His Church Clothes 1 mixtape is nearing 500,000 downloads on DatPiff.com and is considered platinum by them. The faith-based lyricist has collaborated with artists like Big K.R.I.T., No Malice of Clipse, Andy Mineo, Chaka Khan and 9th Wonder.

  • Justin Moss

    Lecrae killed it! Easily one of the best mixtapes this year.

    • joestar

      Are we even trying to compare the amount of redundancy in secular hh? before I started listening to Crae I got bored with the same old formula hot 97 hip hop radio hasn't sounded good (with the exception of kendrick and few others) since the 90's. It's funny to me like the pot calling the kettle black...the same top 40 trap beats your critizing christian rap with young..., lil..., etc. Their are alot of good christian rappers like lecrae commercially or under ground like shad k, corey red, eshon burgundy. Branch out look around theory hazit, promise, relic, rig, bizzle their out their you just gotta look. This is a dope positive mixtape if you want ignorant sht. look elsewhere

      Shit was wack lana del rey has better shit then this dude

  • Lazy Eyed Republican

    My problem with Christian Rap is that it all sounds like Top 40 with some trap beat and everyone sounds the same. I am a Christian myself, rather proud Christian. I just wish there were more Christian oriented rappers who rapped with a slow flow with more abstract production (i.e. Roc Marci, Evidence) You know what I mean?

    • Lazy Eyed Republican

      Yo thanks so much my brothers. May peace be with you. God Bless. I'ma check these guys out.

    • DoublebassD

      I hear you brotha - try Shai Linne, Timothy Brindle or Stephen the Levite from Lampmode or Braille, Propoganda or the rest of the Humble Beast family - you'll find what you're looking for. It's out there, trust me.

      Look for Phanatik.

    • Joshua

      Try out Theory Hazit. A lot of his production and rap has a very Madlib, Alchemist vibe and his flow and cadence is also.

    • Lazy Eyed Republican

      Naming me three songs does not count my brother. There are no Christian rappers who have Alchemist/Madlib/etc. type production or a slow flow reminiscent of Evidence or Roc Marci..It's all very radio-friendly (for the most part)I'm not hating. I wanna be a fan as a Christian, it's just these guys don't cater to my particular rap tastes.

    • CrayCray

      "was it worth it", "lucky one", "inspiration"..... not trying to hate on you but you don't know what you are talking about brother lol.

  • Fuck This Guy and Fuck his "god" too

    I forsee at my end to be banished, By your god for my life and branding Never around, in the greatness of sorrow, Screw your god and his UN writ moral. Stifle god, and the idols of hatred, Out of my heart, I have always been free, One with no need all alone and satanic. Wretched and Vile, fuck your god, de face him. Who could believe in a lord that's demanding? Hard to believe when we die we vanish, In his deny and for all his creation, Fuck your god and his righteous hatred. You and your son, you are nothing but absence, Something not there that controls this planet, Only deceit do I see in your hallow If you believe you will dwell in failure. Fuck Your God, Holy mother for the whore she is, Fuck your God, bible thumper preaching threats from hymn, Fuck your god, his revival and the holy Ghost, Fuck your god; only tell us what we need to know, Fuck your god, pointing fingers and then do as me, Fuck your god, you are nothing and you'll never be, Fuck your god; it is Satan who in trusts my soul, Fuck your god, where the Christians are I will not go. Fuck your god!!!!! Fuck his, commandments, and prophet's left stranded to die, Not in my heart or my soul as I go through this life, Good book of bullshit lay dirty with vengeance and lies, Go fuck your Jesus and get- the- fuck out my sight. Unity over flowing with anger, It is our time to remove the savior, Christians are weak and the bible is beaten, Homage to god, in this world not needed. Fuck your god an his annals of plager, Falling apart and exposing the light, I will not live by the words of their Jesus, He did not die to protect or save me. There is just blood in his book of deceiving, Riddles and crap to his divine healing, Fail is your faith and you blame it on Satan, Christians can't see that their preys are wasted. Not a slave to religion unrendered, Falsified god and his Christ redempters. Never to be in the presence of grandeur, I am for me and forever after. Fuck Your God, Holy mother for the whore she is, Fuck your God, bible thumper preaching threats from hymn, Fuck your god, his revival and the holy Ghost, Fuck your god; only tell us what we need to know, Fuck your god, pointing fingers and then do as me, Fuck your god, you are nothing and you'll never be, Fuck your god; it is Satan who in trusts my soul, Fuck your god, where the Christians are I will not go. Fuck your god!!!!! Fuck you!!!!

      Hey dude, i respect your opinion but that is uncalled for. Just because i don't believe in unicorns doesn't mean i should lash out at them like that. I think you have issues with God, take it out on him.

    • J.P.

      Some body needs a hug/somebody to love them. Dude need someone to care about him.

    • nobody

      Damn dude, I don't think god could fix that "poem." Lol, incoherent nonsense. Wasted everyone's time...

    • Young Guwop

      Damn. lol!!! You're the stereotypical angry Atheist who probably gets no pussy and have issues. I'm not religious myself. But don't knock those who are religious. It's called toleration. Try it sometimes.

    • black canseco

      pretty venemous dude... worst part is you invested talent and time claiming there is no God whenif you're rightyou're shouting to nothing, literally nothing about nothing. Or... You're boldly attacking folk who believe God to be real simply because they believe God is real, not because of anything they did to you or anyone you care about. So i'm not sure how this makes you feel any better than those you claim to hate. in any event, I'll pray for you.
