Popular rapper and professing Christian Lecrae has credited God for his immense success in the secular music industry, arguing that on his own, he does not have the talent or appeal to crossover to the mainstream.

“I don’t have [the talent or crossover appeal],” said Lecrae in a recent interview with Christian rap site Rapzilla regarding his close friend Kendrick Lamar’s latest album “To Pimp A Butterfly”.

“I don’t accredit any of this to just my capability or talent. I think God is doing something far beyond my comprehension. So I don’t understand it. I don’t try to make a science out of it,” added the rapper, who is currently on the “Anomaly Tour.”

The rapper also discussed several “overtly Christian” artists–including Trip Lee, Tedashii, KB and Andy Mineo–he believes could, like himself, find success in the mainstream music industry.
