The BET Hip-Hop Awards just announced that Christian emcee Lecrae will be performing at the event on October 4. The Reach Records rapper’s name appeared alongside Quavo and Big K.R.I.T.
Lecrae wasn’t nominated for a BET Hip-Hop Award but for the second straight year, the BET Awards nominated Lecrae for Best Gospel Artist earlier this year. He lost out to Kirk Franklin. “[Lecrae] gives us our messages in an extremely relate-able way,” the 2016 BET Awards said. In 2015, Lecrae became the first rapper to win Best Gospel Artist at the BET Awards. Kanye West was nominated for Best Gospel Artist in 2005 but lost to Donnie McClurkin.
