Lecrae has been nominated for multiple 2015 Grammy awards. What may be most impressive is that one of them is in a mainstream category, “Best Rap Performance.” His track, “All I Need Is You,” is up against Childish Gambino’s “3005,” Drake’s “0-100/The Catchup,” Eminem’s “Rap God,” and Kendrick Lamar’s “i.”
“All I Need Is You” was produced by Dirty Rice and Joseph Prielozny.
