Lecrae, the top-selling Christian rapper who was born in Houston, won a 2013 Grammy award for Gravity in the Best Gospel Album category. Other nominees included: James Fortune & FIYA 窶 Identity Israel & New Breed 窶 Jesus at the Center LIVE Marvin Sapp 窶 I Win Anita Wilson 窶 Worship Soul Although they are far and few between, Lecrae is NOT the first Christian rapper to win this honor. dc talk won one in 1994 for their album Free At Last. But back then, the category was for the 窶廝est Rock Gospel Album.窶 Toby Mac, a founding member of dc talk, also won a solo Grammy in 2009 for Alive and Transported. From 2007 to 2011 it was awarded as 窶廝est Rock or Rap Gospel Album窶 窶 wording that seemed to open the possibility for more members of the hip hop community to take home the trophy. Now, it窶冱 simply 窶廝est Gospel Album窶 窶 a move that appears to make it even harder for someone like Lecrae to win. For some reason or another, Lecrae was not in the building when the award was announced so his Reach Records co-owner Ben Washer and Reach A&R Street Symphony accepted it on his behalf.
