Lecrae Talks Overtly Sexual Entertainers, Says ‘Classy’ Women Need Not ‘Advertise’

Share Every man is not impressed with the overtly sexual image artists like Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé put on display for the world to see. Reach Records rapper Lecrae Moore, 34, is one of them.

In a promotional interview for Anomaly, his iTunes Hip Hop chart-topping new release, the Christian emcee shares his distaste for it.

“You don’t have to advertise,” he told a XXL Magazine interviewer, making the point that a woman of class and intelligence doesn’t need to show all her goodies for attention—something he says he tells his own daughter.

LIVE on June 29, 2014 in Los Angeles, California (Credit: GETTY)The “Nuthin” rapper’s answer was in response to a question about his views on Nicki’s sexually explicit video “Anaconda” and the music industry’s overall emphasis on female entertainers looking “pretty” for approval.

“You think about a Ferrari. You never seen a Ferrari or a Lamborghini commercial because everybody who wants a Ferrari, they know where to get it,” explained Lecrae. “All the cheap cars have commercials. They have to advertise. You know what I mean?”

His example is based on trends of elite automakers that neither sponsor celebrities nor market their products to the general public.

“It's the same situation with a young lady. You don't have to advertise because a dude who knows where to find an expensive, classy woman, knows where to find them.”

He added, “You don't have to show it off. You don't have to advertise it. It's no knock or disrespect.”

Cleavage, butt cheeks, seductive dance moves and simulated sex scenes are so common that young women without strong guidance often imitate the unhealthy role models.

Despite the commonality and popularity of explicit content though, Lecrae is not a fan of it. “You know, Lauryn Hill has always been one of my favorites because she demonstrated that her mind and her giftedness could elevate her,” he said.

Ms. Hill’s 1998 album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill earned her five Grammys in 1999. She was nominated for ten.

He concluded his thoughts on the subject with, “She won all those Grammy's using her talent and her mind.”

Besides, Lecrae, who is happily married to Darragh, seems to have eyes for only one woman.
