Today, Grammy-Award winning rap artist Lecrae released a brand new song “Can’t Stop Me Now (Destination).” The heartfelt track is now available at all DSPs. The emotionally charged artist/author/entrepreneur and social activist – hailed by Rolling Stone as a ‘highly skilled, fast-talking, diary-spilling, self-proclaimed iconoclast,’ – excerpts his recently released manifesto, below. It’s an intimate reveal of his current state of mind, as well as a glimpse into some of the personal and social trials he so powerfully addresses in the new song “Can’t Stop Me Now”:
I was once told you shouldn’t waste time explaining yourself to people bent on misunderstanding you.
So, I won’t anymore.
I can’t anymore.
I’m a mess.
I’ve been grieving the loss of black lives since 2014…without consultation.
Been fighting critics and scrutiny since 2012.
I can’t even read comments on social media anymore.
All the slander is too much for any one person to digest.
They don’t get me.
Poised for further mainstream recognition as he continues to alter hip hop’s emerging new conscious sensibility, Lecrae is set to embark on his headline tour, The Destination Tour, You’re Accepted, beginning on October 25th in Columbia, SC. Performances are scheduled across many major cities including New York City, Philadelphia and Chicago before wrapping up on November 16th in Asheville, NC – see full list of dates below.
