Church Clothes, Vol. 2, is the second mixtape by Christian hip hop artist Lecrae, released on November 7, 2013 by Reach Records. Hosted by Don Cannon, it follows Lecrae's previous mixtape, Church Clothes, and Grammy Award-winning full-length album Gravity, both of which came out in 2012.
Lecrae's goal is to represent Christ and a holy culture. But instead of forsaking his
urban roots and flavour, he uses them to put Christ and the Bible in a light that rap
fans can understand. The aim is to digest theology and spit it back out so the
streets can grasp it. If the message is the meat then the seasonings are the
rhyme patterns, urban beats, and relational themes. Hip-hop has proven to
transcend race and background, though losing some of it's vigor and integrity in
the process, Lecrae wants to remain true in his music and
