Lecrae will pay tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at Monday’s Atlanta Hawks game

Lecrae will pay tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with a halftime and post-show performance at Monday’s Atlanta Hawks game.

The Atlanta rapper, who recently won his ninth Dove Award for “Let the Trap Say Amen” with Atlanta producer Zaytoven, will hit the court at State Farm Arena during and after the 2:30 p.m. game against the Toronto Raptors.

The matchup is also a “Peachtree Night” game, so the Hawks will sport their Nike Peachtree City Edition uniforms.

Lecrae, meanwhile, is readying the release of a new album, “Restoration,” this spring. He’s also unveiling a new book, “I Am Restored.” In 2016, he released the New York Times bestselling memoir, “Unashamed.”
