Fresh after being caught up in the interview with Louie Giglio, where he came under fire for comments made about “white privilege”, Lecrae has launched a new single.
Giglio was joined by Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy and rapper Lecrae for an “open and honest conversation around how racism has plagued Atlanta for generations when he made incredulous comments about white blessing becoming white privielege.
Lecrae responded to Giglio’s comments, stating, “I have a lot of racial trauma. After spending the last few years battling racism within the evangelical church I was in a dark place. In that interview I feared going back there. I’m healing but not healed. I’m definitely protecting myself from a breakdown.
“I want to be clear I’m sorry for anyone who was let down and hurt. This was good for me in many ways. It burns but it burns in a helpful way. Lamentations 3 has comforted me. I’m grateful for the love. Even the tough love.”
She is best known as a songwriter, having co-written for mainstream artists like Iggy Azalea and Chris Brown, but Natalie Lauren is an amazing talent in her own right.
