Lecrae – Broke
Lecrae will be releasing his new album All Things Work Together on September 22. It will be his first major label project through Columbia Records.
After unveiling the track list for the album late August, the talented artist releases a new track today titled ‘Broke’. It’s an inspiring tune where Lecrae is rapping about how being broke at one point helped him reach the level he’s at today.
Over T-Minus production, Lecrae made a heater for anybody on the grind. Before the beat drops, Lecrae gets King Los to say, “Being broke in this thing don’t sit right/ Do it for my folk, tryna get by/ I came through the struggle with my head high/ You being broke think you know what it feel like” before T-Minus signature sliding synths and booming 808’s kick in. Lecrae gears this one towards anybody who’s going through the struggle. On the hook he sings “being broke made me rich” before going into the verse to detail how growing up in poverty helped him get out of it. However, Lecrae isn’t flexing his money. Instead, he elaborates on the hook to talk about how being broke has helped him build a better character.
