Background

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."[3]

Content

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. In "Don't Waste Your Life" featuring Dwayne Tryumf, the rapper talks about how worldy pursuits lead to only disappointment in life, and living to serve Jesus leads to happiness. In the song "Identity" featuring J.R. and Da' T.R.U.T.H., Lecrae deals with self-esteem and image issues in the global community, telling listeners that their worth comes from their relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and not in material possessions. "Indwelling Sin" speaks on the battle between his flesh and his spirit in the form of a conversation with his sin. In "Fall Back" featuring Trip Lee, he speaks on guarding against the ideals of the world as portrayed in the media. In "Got Paper" he again attacks the perception that money is the ultimate goal in life and asserts that a relationship with Christ is greater than all of the riches of the world. In "The Bride", Lecrae exhorts listeners to love the church as Christ loves the church.

Commercial

Rebel has been a commercial success, having sold over 15,000 copies shortly after its release (9,800 copies in its first week and 5,600 copies in its second week of release, excluding digital downloads) and debuting on eight Billboard music charts.[10][11] The album debuted at No 60 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and is the first Lecrae album to do so. Rebel also debuted at No 1 on the Top Gospel Albums chart, outperforming his previous album, After the Music Stops, which only managed to peak at No 5 throughout its 100-week run on the chart. The album remained at the No 1 spot on the Top Gospel Albums chart for a second week, and was the first hip hop album to ever reach No. 1 on the chart.[12][13] Rebel debuted at No 2 on Billboard's Top Christian Albums and Top Christian & Gospel Albums charts, respectively. The album secured the No 10 spot on the Top Independent Albums chart and held the No 15 spots equally on the Top Digital Albums and Top Internet Albums charts. Rebel also achieved a lower peak position of No 61 on the Billboard Comprehensive Albums chart.

According to the Nielsen SoundScan, a project specializing in the statistics of album sales, Rebel was the highest-selling Christian rap album in the weeks following its release.[14] Rebel also maintained a six-week run on the iTunes Store's Top 10 most sold albums chart.

Awards

The album was nominated for a Dove Award for Rap/Hip-Hop Album of the Year at the 40th GMA Dove Awards.[24]
