Lecrae’s Darkest Hour featuring No Malice is his first collaboration with a secular rapper. Acting as a missionary in the hip-hop world, Lecrae hopes to work in what Kuyper calls “the wide and fertile fields of common grace,” finding commonality with rappers who internally struggle with faith. Acting under the theology of common grace, Lecrae would later collaborate with Big K.R.I.T. on the song Mayday for his album Gravity, presenting K.R.I.T.’ s struggle with the gospel.
