Lecrae Wins The 2017 BET Bobby Jones Gospel Award
Lecrae took home his second BET Award for "Best Gospel/Inspirational Award". This time for his song "Can't Stop Me Now (Destination)." Christian Twitter felt some kind of way about his acceptance speech. He said:
It's no secret Lecrae has said before he doesn't consider himself a Gospel artist, yet we continue to categorize him as a Holy Hip Hop Artist.
He later went to Twitter to say he forgot to thank a number of people who help make the award win possible.
This year he was up against Cece Winans, Fantasia with Tye Tribbett, Kirk Franklin with Sarah Reeves, Tasha Cobbs, and Tamela Man, and Tamela Man by herself.
