Lecrae and Zaytoven “Let the Trap Say Amen” Album Review

Lecrae and Zaytoven
Let the Trap Say Amen
Reach Records

Lecrae built his brand and established himself at the top of the rap world by being unafraid to discuss the things that other artists wouldn’t touch. Now, with his new project, Let the Trap Say Amen, Lecrae sounds fulfilled and free. The new mixtape finds decorated producer Zaytoven building the beats and the melodies and Lecrae supplying the flow, and together, the two men from Atlanta have made a record that truly drips with the sound and the fury of the South. From lyrics about the dangers of material success to finding holiness in the midst of poverty, Let the Trap Say Amen does just that—it allows the disenfranchised, the underserved, the voiceless, to shout praise to the King. The record is poignant and poetic, and guest stars like K-So, nobigdyl, Waka Flocka Flame, SkySpeaks, and Verse Simmonds all provide sparks of energy to their tracks. Let the Trap Say Amen is vintage lyrical Lecrae, and Zaytoven injects it all with depth and feeling.
