Art Hooker, a filmmaker, will be releasing a documentary movie on Christian Hip Hop artist Lecrae in 2016. The documentary entitled "Unashamed World" tells the story of the rise of Lecrae and Reach Records. It will also feature appearances of authors and preachers such as John Piper and Matt Chandler.
The "Anomaly" rapper will be "Unashamed World's" main character and the supporting cast will be comprised of his Reach Records family that includes KB, Trip Lee, Andy Mineo, Tedashii, Derek Minor and Sho Baraka.
Lecrae is also set to release his first book also entitled Unashamed which chronicles his life and divulges previously unknown details about his past, including a botched suicide attempt and struggles with drugs and depression. The book will be released in May 2016 and will precede the launch of his next album.
"I'm writing Unashamed for all those who don't know who they are, who feel confined by the labels given to them," said Lecrae in a statement shared with The Christian Post earlier this year.
"As an artist my ambition is to make honest music, and I feel the same way about writing this book," he added. "I want to be honest about where I've come from and what I've learned along the way. I want to influence culture, to help catalyze and inspire, and help other people find understanding. If they find some inspiration and some clarity for their own lives, as they follow my journey, then I will have succeeded."
