Lecrae coming to UK for album launch gig

Lecrae will be putting on a one-night-only gig at the HMV Ritz in Manchester this month.

The gig on 22 September is his first album launch show for new release, Gravity.

The title track to the album, "Gravity", features J R.

Other collaborators include Big K.R.I.T., Trip Lee, Swoope and Ashton Jones.

Lecrae joked in a promo video that the process of making the album in the studio had been "tedious - but worth it!!"

The process was a new one for him this time round, with the producers, singers and writers all being brought together at the studio to work on the album at the same time.

"People are just inspired by one another," he explained.

"It's made me write some of the best rhymes I've written in a while.

"It's been great ... making good music, enriching people's lives and inspiring people."
