Lecrae brought his message home Thursday night to a warm, welcoming crowd.

The Grammy-winning rapper, who was born in Houston, has found big success with Christian music fans. But mainstream attention and increasing sales have shown that his songs and messages have reached a much bigger audience.

He has maintained, and told me in 2012, that he's first and foremost a hip-hop artist.

"I think everyone funnels their art through their paradigm and their perspective. Art doesn't have to be used to teach or to preach at people," he said.

"I'm an artist, and my job is to illustrate. It doesn't mean that music can't teach, but I want to focus first and foremost on making good art."

His eighth studio album, "All Things Work Together," was released last month and features collaborations with Ty Dolla Sign and Tori Kelly.

Lecrae was introduced to mainstream hip-hop fans via the 2011 BET Hip-Hop Awards Cypher, which spotlights several acts on a single track. He performed earlier this year during Super Bowl LIVE at Discovery Green.
