Why did you choose Romans 1:16 as your foundational Bible verse?
Well to be honest Lecrae has been a huge motivation in my life one of the things that God used to reach me was Lecrae’s song Crossover from his first album, when I heard the song I was challenged to live for God and give my life to Jesus the chorus and the verses were just on point and I loved the zeal Lecrae had for relaying God’s word and I was motivated to live the unashamed life (One One Six) by now I know you know about the One One Six clique, I feel like you don’t have to be Trip Lee or J-son or Sho Baraka to be Unashamed its bigger than them and that what’s I’m lm living however sometimes people label you a wanna be but its all good it comes with territory…
