Lecrae - Early Life
Lecrae Age: 40 yrs (as of 2019)
Lecrae Devaughn Moore was born on October 9, 1979, in Houston, Texas, USA. His father had always been absent from his life and later became a drug addict.
He was raised by his poor but hardworking mother and grandmother. Growing up, he lived in San Diego, Denver, and Dallas.
He attended services with them at their local church but deep down lecrae's heart religion was not something that mattered to him.
He suffered sexual molestation at the hands of a female baby sitter when he was eight, and according to Lecrae, it left a long-term negative impact on his views on sexuality. In a life full of abuse and violence, hip hop provided him with a refuge.
Besides 2Pac who he admired for his rapping skills, he also looked up to his uncle who introduced him to a life of crime. He began doing drugs at 16 and soon started dealing as well. He kept a Bible with him that his grandmother had given him as a good luck charm.
The turning point in his life came when he was arrested for drug possession. The officer saw him with a bible so let him go upon Lecrae's promising that he would read and follow the Bible. He thus started visiting the church again. Upon an invitation from a friend, he also started attending Bible studies.
He was once involved in an accident where he wrecked his car but he himself came out unscathed. This incident further strengthened his belief and faith in Christ and he devoted his life fully to his faith. He returned to his college, the 'University of North Texas' and volunteered and sang at a juvenile detention centre.
Lecrae is a graduate of University of North Texas.
