Rebel is the third studio album by Christian rap artist, Lecrae. The album was released by Reach Records on September 30, 2008. The album was nominated in the best Rap/Hip-Hop Album category at the 40th Annual GMA Dove Awards but lost to Group 1 Crew's Ordinary Dreamers.

Rebel is titled after Lecrae's encouragement to rebel against modern pop culture, also pointing out that Jesus Christ himself was a rebel. Lecrae has stated that the title of the album is both a noun and a verb. Rapzilla called the album "a verbal onslaught against the world's view on life in modern day culture.”

Lecrae tackles some important issues in Rebel. In the album's intro and title track, Lecrae says that Christians must rebel against the ways of the world. Read More Here

The strongest messages on Rebel comes from the many stories within it. Take "Identity" for example, 3 stories in one song told by Lacrae, Da T.R.U.T.H. and J.R. Lecrae starts off by telling a tale about a dude who has almost everything; cars, clothes, a nice crib, physical prowess. But he is still insecure because Christ isn't fulfilling him. Crae says he could give it up if he only knew Jesus completes him. Next, Da TRUTH comes thru and examines himself and measures his success. He asks if his success is from what he wears and what he produces in the booth? Because if those things make him successful he would be depressed because people don't feel him "like they did in 04". He is successful because he is God's friend. After listening to this verse, I think Da Truth had some missing pages (sorry KJ-52) from his "Open Book". These stories of realness are flowed over an electronic beat which makes these rhymes stories timeless.

Finally, the production of Rebel can stand up to 98 percent of all new releases out now. Lecrae has a great ear for picking beats and producers to assist in this endeavor. Reach Record followers are going to love the Rebel album. All in all Rebel is a solid album that listeners will enjoy as they revolt against un-biblcal worldviews. Read More Here
