Lecrae Adresses Roc Nation Signing Rumor

Posted By on June 24, 2013

Christian rapper Lecrae recently cleared the air about his label situation and possibly signing with Jay-z’s Roc Nation.

In the interview with Ebony, Lecrae had this to say about his current situation:

“[Laughs] At this point in time, no. Essentially, he was looking for some conscious artists and my name was thrown into a pool of other artists and that’s as far as it went.” (Ebony)

Lecrae later went on to talk about how signing with Jay-Z will probably never happen:

Nah. For multiple reasons, but one majorly, I’m an independent artist, I’m a label owner,” Crae added when asked if he would consider joining Jay-Z. “I love my independence. I love being able to create the story. And I want to do in many ways what Jay-Z is doing for the mainstream. He’s inspiring a lot of people to think they can do something on their own. I want to inspire people that they can do it on their own and not compromise their faith and beliefs, as well. So, that’s what I stand for.”
