What You'll Get
- $20 for one ticket for general-admission standing (up to $36.09 value)
LECRAE: The Destination Tour with Special Guest Ambré
- Lecrae: what happens when a rapper with a Tupac-style rat-a-tat flow and a penchant for inspirational—but not coddling—lyricism, defies categorization and becomes a superstar across the faithful and secular realms.
- The label given to Lecrae: “Christian rapper,” although he views the music as simply hip-hop and himself as a Christian social anthropologist. The songs aren’t sermons, and as Lecrae says, “Christian is a wonderful noun, but a terrible adjective. Are there Christian shoes?”
- The label Lecrae made: Reach Records, of which he’s the president and cofounder; he also cofounded the nonprofit ReachLife Ministries
- Anomaly: Something that deviates from the norm—like when an aptly named Christian rap album tops the Billboard 200 and the Gospel Album charts at the same time, or when that album’s artist becomes the first rapper to win the Grammy for Best Gospel Album and the first rapper to win the BET Award for Best Gospel Artist.
- Church Clothes: Lecrae’s hit series of mixtapes (the Houston Chronicle called Volume 1, “The most important album in Christian rap history”) that just reached Volume 3, and what Lecrae probably wore when he won his two Grammys and seven Dove Awards
- Unashamed: the New York Times Best-Selling memoir that details how Lecrae went from a man ruled by drugs and alcoholism to an artist of faith

About The Rapids Theatre
If a time traveler hopped from The Rapid Theatre in 1921 to the same spot in modern times, they would think their time machine was broken. Lovingly restored to its early 20th century luster, the former movie house dazzles visitors with columned walls, a sculpted ceiling, and a brick tapestry facade. All that has changed is what goes on inside. These days, the venue—which accommodates up to 1,700 entertainment enthusiasts or 3,400 stacked children in trench coats—fills its stage with major music acts. The handicap-accessible facility also slakes sing-along induced thirst with two fully stocked bars.
