Reach Records founder and popular emcee, Lecrae has been candid about his constant need for restoration as he battles internal struggles that resurfaced for him in this season, which he expresses in his new single, “Deep End.”
The single was released on Wednesday and details how Lecrae has felt while dealing with racial trauma in the evangelical sphere.
“The world gone mad, can’t ignore this noise / Look at these people found dead in the streets I got some partners that hate the police / Me, I’m just tryna hold onto my peace ‘Cause I’m liable to lose it and go get the piece, I need a reason, I need the season, Pleaded with Jesus, all of this grievin,’” He raps in the vulnerable new single.
Lecrae has been using his voice to call for an end to racial injustice since the officer-involved fatal shooting of Philando Castile. His social advocacy has since continued following the death of George Floyd, who died while in police custody.
“A couple years ago, my childhood trauma came to a head. I felt abandoned and turn my back on everything and everyone I loved, including God. He was gracious to me. I wanted a transactional escape from my pain, depression, and anxiety. God is not transactional though, He’s relational,” Lecrae wrote on Twitter, announcing the new single.
“I began my journey of restoration,” He continued. “As we approach 2020 I was positive that this would be a phenomenal year, only to find myself with more problems, more issues and more unrest.”
The Texas native said 2020 has turned out to be nothing like he thought it would. Instead, it’s been a “difficult year.”
