"This tour is meant to be an invitation to collectively breathe through art and music. It's been an exhausting year, and people need a destination where they can feel freedom," Lecrae said. "I'm excited to play new music for the first time. I've worked with some of the most incredible artists over the summer, and I want to put some of that music on display."

Lecrae's album, "Anomaly," debuted on September 2014 at No. 1 on the coveted Billboard Top 200, receiving universal acclaim and making him a force in mainstream rap music. The Atlanta-based artist, community leader, activist and entrepreneur has helped to revive the genre's conscious sensibility with his message of inspiration.

Lecrae has shared the stage with Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole as well as hip-hop legends Wu-Tang Clan, Rakim and Common. He has co-headlined some of the best-selling tours in the U.S., according to Pollstar, and Lecrae's call for redemption through positive change has placed him on the forefront of causes close to his heart.

Lecrae released his memoir, "Unashamed," this summer, and it immediately debuted as a New York Times Best Seller, landing in the Top 10 in the nonfiction category.

Lecrae is a two-time Grammy Award-winning hip-hop artist. "Anomaly" debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200, rap, digital, Christian, gospel and independent charts. His seven studio albums and mixtapes have sold more than 1.9 million copies. He has been nominated for five Grammys, including Best Rap Performance, Best Gospel Album and Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song, as well as earning noms from the Dove, Billboard Music, Soul Train Music and BET Hip Hop and BET awards.
