This is the type of collaboration that makes you ask, “Why did it take so long?” Lecrae drops his latest single called “Mayday,” featuring underground rapper turned Def Jam artist Big K.R.I.T. and Ashton Jones. The lushly produced track will be appearing on Lecrae’s forthcoming new album, Gravity. The Christian rapper received mainstream praise for his latest mixtape, Church Clothes, which dropped back in May.

Lecrae and Big K.R.I.T. sound perfectly fluid spittin’ their pious rhymes while American Idol’s Ashton Jones’ soulful vocal further complement the DJ Khalil produced track.

Gravity is in stores September 4th. Listen to “Mayday” after the break.
