Favourite Song on Album:

Listen to This Album When You’re:

Needing something more contemporary but need to clear your head from the explicit stuff.

Thoughts on Album Cover:

I like it, it reminds me of something Pusha T would choose.

Want to Own on Vinyl?:

Not this one.

Final Thoughts:

I have such mixed feelings about Lecrae, on one hand he’s a really talented emcee who has really knocked down the walls of Christian hip hop and made the culture take it more seriously, but on the other hand he just seems to swim through lanes already made by popular emcees. Honestly, my biggest criticism of All Things Work Together is that Lecrae is really just going for the style that’s popular at the moment. It seems somewhat unauthentic when an artist follows, I wouldn’t say he’s biting, but he’s definitely changing for commercial appeal. I can’t fault an artist on trying to get sales or listens, but at the end of the day I love authenticity in my music and if you change every album to fit what’s good at the time it’s not authentic and has an expiration date, it won’t standout as THE album during any season, and that’s what stops me from loving Lecrae despite an overall pretty good album.
