Tedashii, originally released on Lecrae’s 2004 debut album, Real Talk. “Pa’ Que Sepa” (translated ‘So You Know’ in Spanish) featuring Tommy Royale, Brayan Booze, Don Ryvcko, Cardec Drums, and Emanuel Lara; and “Otu Otu Isii” (translated ‘One One Six’ in Igbo) which features Limoblaze, Tedashii, and Wande.
“We really wanted to unite cultures with this EP and show the world that the Unashamed message is global and bigger than where we’re from,” shares Lecrae, artist, co-founder, and president of Reach Records. Lasanna “ACE” Harris, VP of A&R who produced “Otu Otu Isii” adds, “We get so much love and support from Africa, so on Otu Otu Isii we wanted to amplify that support, blend genres, and ultimately rally around the banner of proclaiming our faith to the world.”
“The abstract graphic of the eclipse on the We Are UNASHAMED EP packaging and tour artwork is a symbol of the good news spreading across a world and people of different cultures coming together under the same sun!” shares Reach Creative Director Kevin Hackett. “The eclipse also represents a transition and an awakening that we all felt when we gave our lives to Christ. We want to represent the power and the joy in that awakening and share it with the masses.”
