Lecrae’s first book, Unashamed, is now available for pre-order on Amazon.

The memoir is scheduled for a May 1 release date.

“If you live by people’s acceptance, you’ll die by their rejection,” the product description reads. “Two-time Grammy winning Rap artist, Lecrae, learned this lesson through more than his share of adversity—childhood abuse, drugs and alcoholism, a stint in rehab, an abortion, and an unsuccessful suicide attempt. Along the way, Lecrae attained an unwavering faith in Jesus and began looking to God for affirmation. Now as a chart-topping industry anomaly, he has learned to ignore the haters and make peace with his craft. The Rap artist holds nothing back as he divulges the most sensitive details of his life, answers his critics, shares intimate handwritten journal entries, and powerfully models how to be Christian in a secular age. This is the story of one man’s journey to faith and freedom.”

The title of the book is based on his 11Six movement, which derives its name from the Bible verse Romans 1:16: “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.”

A 2012 film documenting Lecrae’s music and his Reach Records label was also called Unashamed.

The Atlanta-based rapper has released seven studio albums through Reach Records. His most recent project, Anomaly debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart in September.

Reach Records artist Trip Lee has also published two books.
