The follow-up to Lecrae's Grammy-winning album "Gravity" will feature the Christian rapper's face on the cover.
In 2012, Christian spitter Lecrae made history by becoming the first rapper to win the "Best Gospel Album" Grammy for his projectÂ Gravity, which featured contributions from Big K.R.I.T., No Malice, 9th Wonder, Boi-1da and many more. Now he's gearing up for the release of his follow-up, which he announced earlier this month would be titledÂ Anomaly. Dropping in August, the project now has official artwork, which you can view in the gallery above.Â
Featuring Lecrae's face overlaid with a 3D topographical map, the cover art seems to comment on the digitized, constantly surveilled world we currently live in, situating Lecrae as an independent-minded "anomaly" in the system. As details on the LP are currently scarce, stay tuned forÂ Anomaly's tracklist and official release date.
[Update: Release Date Announced]
Lecrae just took to Twitter to share the official release date forÂ Anomaly, which is September 9th.Â
[Update #2: Tracklist Released]
Lecrae follows up his album artwork and release date for Anomaly with the official tracklist, in the form of the back cover art.Â
Take a look at what you're in for on September 9th in the gallery above.
