изчакайте, Trip - не ви Пенсионират?

Преди няколко месеца аз изненада всички, като обяви, чисто нов албум, “Издигам се.” Вие не разбирате колко трудно е да си мълчим за това преди етикет ми и аз отидох на общественото. Албумът е бил в процес на разработка за повече от една година, и аз не можех да чакам да кажа на всички - особено тези, които постоянно ме питаше, когато бях отпадане нещо ново.

Отговорът досега е дълбоко окуражаващо. Удивен съм, че хората продължават да ме подкрепят, въпреки че аз съм бил доста тих за последните две години. Твоята любов и вълнение се е увеличил само мой.

Ранно пенсиониране

Един от отговорите, че не е изненада, като беше този: "Изчакайте, Мислех, че се оттегля?"Това е въпрос, който ме следва навсякъде като сянка. Аз съм го разглежда в интервюта, туитове, и публикации в блога, но знам, че тя все още е неясно за някои. Нека да продължат да се опитаме да изясним фактите: Никога не съм се оттегля.

в 2012, Аз обяви, че щях да бъда "засилване далеч от музиката." Да, Знам, че звучи пенсиониране-Иш, но аз нарочно не използвам тази дума. Държах го умишлено неясна, защото не бях 100% сигурен какво ще изглежда така.

Знаех, че е възможно, че "добър живот" е последният ми албум, но не бях сигурен. Ето какво аз знаех: щеше да има огромно предимство на смени, които драстично ще промени начина, I, свързани с музика. Аз не бих се по пътя с моите колеги рапъри, колкото. Аз не ще бъде в състояние да манивела куп нова музика. Аз не би било пълно работно време рапър. Знаех си, че иска да помогне на пастор Божия църква.

От тогава, Аз съм бил служи в църквата ми във Вашингтон D.C. в различни пасторални роли. Правил съм администратор работа, проповядване и преподаване, Министерство на младежта, семейно консултиране, и т.н.. Отидох месеца, без да прави никакви предавания или писане на нито един бар на една песен, защото на църковни отговорности. Аз дори седна вън на 2013 безсрамен Tour. И въпреки че съм пропуснал създаване на нова музика, Обичам това, което съм правил. Здравни проблеми са направили това предизвикателство в пъти, но това е било възнаграждаване сезон за мен и моето семейство.

New Album

След тази първа година на пълно работно време пасторален министерство, Реших да бавно да започне работа по нов рекорд. Моите творчески сокове са били бутилирани нагоре, и аз бях готов да отида. Но вместо на пет или шест месеца изблик на писане нон-стоп и запис, този албум е бавен и стабилен, тъй като музиката не беше пълен работата ми време. Това работил чудесно, защото бих могъл бавно занаят всяка песен, и да го по-близо до съвършенството, колкото е възможно.

Реших да работя с един производител този път, вместо да приемете релсови изявления от куп различни момчета. Когато се представя идеята за Gawvi той го обичаше, и ние избута един от друг, за да се направи нещо невероятно. Всеки пътуване направих до Атланта е от решаващо значение, тъй като тя е толкова трудно да се измъкне от семейни и църковни задължения. Но тук ние сме повече от година по-късно, и това е почти навън!

Знам, че някои хора все още са объркани за това какво да очакват от мен в бъдеще. Има много неизвестни за мен, но аз ще ви кажа това, което аз знам:

– Аз все още искам да бъда пастир.
– Аз все още искам да правя музика.
– Аз все още искам да пътуват до рап и говори.
– Аз все още искам да пиша книги.

И аз се опитвам да разбера как или дали мога да направя всички тези неща по начин, който почита Бога, докато все още е верен на моето семейство и на Божията църква.

Ще “Издигам се” е последната ми албум? Тя може да бъде, но аз не се надявам,. За сега, Искам да се насладите на момента и да споделя с всички вас това, което мисля, че е най-добрата ми работа още. Много неща се промениха, тъй като 2012, но едно нещо остава същата: Исус е Господ, и аз искам да го прославя с моята музика.

    Good Day my good brother? Its an awesome thing that your passion and desire for music is still flowing through your veins as well as your desire to spread God’s word through sermons. I can imagine how time consuming things are with family, музика, ministerial duties etc. Born from D.C and raised in Ft. Worth, its a great thing to see a brother from my neck of the woods doing God’s work in every area.

    Thanks for the music brother.

    почтително,
    шик

    Trip has always been intentionally consistent in his approach to teaching, preaching, and music, which has encouraged me and continues to encourage me, daily. When the initial announcement was made in 2012, I knew it wasn’t an officialretirement”, just a strategic shift to focus on other things. Even now, he’s delicately balancing preaching, обучение, музика, and family in an awesome way. That’s why I’ll continue to support him in his endeavors, and as he mentioned “Исус е Господ, and I want to honor Him…” казвам, keep going Trip, your life, music and ministry speaks volumes, beyond a stage, a mic, or a sound bite, your life and the way you intentionally carry yourself, speaks volumes.

    I’m glad you’re back making music but, more than that, I’m glad that you’re following the way the Lord wants you to go. Your music, books, and messages have been a great uplift to me over the past couple of years. Thank you so much for those. You’re in my prayers.

    Пътуване, I am do glad you decided to allow God to use you in music once again. I love his work, and I am happy that soon I will have more relevant tunes to praise God to. Пътуване, you have been such an encouragement, not only to the young, but to the young at heart, and those across the world. I hope my son turns out to be a man after God’s own heart, such as yourself, and that he will allow God to use him in everyway possible. It is important that our young men have a Godly example before them. Keep doing the will of God. I believe that by staying obedient, God will show himself and bring healing to you. Бъди благословен!

    hey Trip,

    I really look up to you bro! As someone who is a PhD student in engineering, a youth pastor and a worship leader amongst other things, you’re struggle to find a way to use the talents God has given you has inspired me not to give up in finding the Good life. As soon as I heard the title of your new album, I knew this was God’s way of tellin me it’s time to wake up and to not give up on finding the Good life in him. Even if I fail, your music reminds me that he won’t. Thanks for your music and for the struggle you put yourself through to simply get the message out.

    Много любов

    Much respect for you, Trip Lee. You’re a man of God. You’ve always been one of my favourite rappers and I couldn’t be happier that you’re releasing new music whilst fulfilling your duties to your family and church.

    I have so much gratitude to God for that fact that artists like you exist. Вие, through God, have provided me so much inspiration in the midst of both my struggles and triumphs, and for that I’d like to show my sincere appreciation. It’s one of my dreams to see you in concert, either by you visiting New Zealand or by me travelling to the US for one of your shows! God bless and much love to you and your beautiful family.

    I can’t wait for this new album. I Started listening to Christian hip hop in 2013. First artist I heard was Lecrae. I was hooked since I first heard Church Clothes. Time went by and I started to find out about Andy Mineo, KB, Trip Lee, Tedashii and so on. All of these guysmusic has changed my life. Totally changed my taste in music and also encouraged me to get more involved with my faith. Thank you Trip and the rest of 116. I hope I get to see you in concert soon. Бог да благослови.

    Пътуване, as you were out of music, I noticed an extreme difference in your approach to your faith & career from other 116 artists. I have been able to see & feel through your journey that being pliable in the hands of the Father has been your number one priority (not saying that isn’t true for the other artists). I admire you for the way that you’ve gone about your pursuit of your goals. I’m proud to be a fan of yours & SO EXCITED that there’s new music from you. I am praying Isaiah 60:1-2 over you & your family, as I feel that RISING to the glory of God that’s shining into your life, is what you’ve been doing over the last years. Salute!

    Пътуване, I’m happy to know you have created a new album. I’m more happy as to the fact you stepped side from music for a while to focus on things in your personal life, that you felt were far more important in which the were. For years I have looked up to you as well as a few of your fellow emcees because if I hadn’t began listening to, what most would call mere lyrics, I would much rather call your words, or songs rather, lyrical testimonies and preachings. Before hearing your music, I was in a dark place. I had fallen far from the arms of God. Your music, as well as other artists, brought me closer to God and motivated me to better myself. I thank you as well as other emcees in your category for inspiring me and motivating me to come closer to God. I support you and what you do because you don’t do the things you do for yourself. Не. You do them in the name of the Lord and I respect that so much. Keep on doing the things you do. God isn’t done working with you yet. Бог да благослови.

    I praise God for your diligence and dedication to His word. The time spent on your album is evident in the tracks that have been released so far. I love your work and ministry and look forward to what God has in store for the Body of Christ through you.

    I recently (4 days ago) just saw you in concert in Salt Lake City, UT. I absolutely loved the way you were so transparent in your songs. You preached the gospel so clearly, thank you. Thanks so much for bringing hope to the world in the name of Jesus. Love you!

    Hi Trip Lee. I love your song sweet victory. I love the authenticity of your lyrics. Its really helped me feel like there are people who can sincerely relate with my struggles as a Christian. Cause its not easy. Witnessing how Gods used you due to obedience, ie remaining faithful despite the pain- both encourages and challenges me not to tap out, but to keep pressing on.Christ is soo proud of U.

    My husband and I are excited for this new album and have listened to every song that has been released so far from Rise. You got great stuff on it bro. We’re glad to be supporting you by buying your new album. (Между другото, you’re a HUGE inspiration to my husband. He’s a big fan of yours-from rapping, to buying your book, and to admiring your love for your wife and kids and how you display it all the time in interviews).

    God bless you bro. May God continue to grant you the strength you need to deal with all your responsibilities. Supporting you all the way from the Bay in California.
