Reach Records, a record label co-founded by the popular rap artist, Lecrae, has terminated another “Christian rapper” from his contract due to allegations of “sexual misconduct” according to the record label’s Instagram page.
According to All Hip Hop, the rapper, GAWVI, has been “accused of sending unsolicited pics of his private parts to multiple women while he was married.” Christian rap website Rapzilla detailed the allegations against him in a story published on Monday.
In a now-deleted Instagram post, GAWVI announced this past weekend that he and his wife had been separated since 2020 and that he ultimately decided to divorce his wife because that’s what he thought “the right thing to do” was.
Thankfully, Reach Records ultimately made the right decision to drop him; however, it seems that if this behavior had been going on for such a long time, why did it take so long to make the decision? The artist obviously elevates his personal decisions and opinions of his friends above God if he’s leaving his wife and texting explicit pics to other women.
Reformation Charlotte has long argued that the merging of secular music with Christianity is nothing more than a recipe for disaster. This disaster is not limited to rap music. The popular Christian rock band, Hillsong, has also been embroiled in years of scandal including sexual misconduct.
Lecrae started out as a Reformed Christian rap artist who clearly taught a gospel message in his music, but he, too, has succumbed to a secular ideology and worldview. He no longer holds biblical truths to be the mainstay of his music, he now caters to the world. He promotes secular Marxist ideology, even identifying with foul-mouthed secular musicians to do so. This merging of secularism with Christianity has never born good fruits.
