“When you think about it, this is a game where you might lose your life on the field,” says Ravens running back Justin Forsett. “If there is somebody out there who can give me peace or rest, I need that.” Forsett now finds that peace – as well as a friend and mentor – in Lecrae, a Grammy-winning Houston-born rapper who has never shied away from writing songs about his faith.
Justin Forsett and Lecrae first met backstage at a concert in 2011 – when the running back was playing for the Seahawks – and they bonded almost instantly. Both men are committed husbands and fathers who would rather chase their kids around the park than spend an evening in a club.”In music culture today, there are a lot of facades going on and not a lot of truth,” Forsett says. “With Crae, he doesn’t hide behind stages. If you’re in trouble, he has wise words of advice.”
