“The main thing that really motivated me to want an inspired by album is I wanted to make sure young people had a way in. Not only did they have a film that they could see, that could teach them about an American hero, but they had some type of connection to people they looked up to, respect an artist that could also tell them it’s important.

Lecrae

Lecrae thenspoke on Nat Turner’s legacy, commenting,

“This is the story of a saint who was modered for his beliefs in his rights as a human, for belief in his rights as a man in America so this film honors him in a unique way that our history books would never have done. I had to take a moment after watching the film and just breath. Nate didn’t put alot of restrictions on us as far as artists were concerned. He just wanted us to communicate authentically how we felt after seeing the film.”
