čekajte, Trip - Zar nisi Retire?

Prije par mjeseci sam iznenadio najavom potpuno novi album, “rasti.” Ne razumijem kako je bilo teško da šute o tome prije mog etiketa i sam otišao javnosti. Album je bio u radovima više od godinu dana, a ja ne mogu čekati da kažem svima - posebno oni koji stalno pita kad sam pada nešto novo.

Odgovor je do sada bio duboko ohrabrujući. Zapanjen sam da su ljudi nastavili da me podrži, iako sam bio prilično mirno za posljednje dvije godine. Tvoja ljubav i uzbuđenje je porastao samo moja.

Early Retirement

Jedan od odgovora nisam iznenaditi bio je jedan: "Čekajte, Mislio sam da si u penziji?"To je pitanje koje me prati oko kao senka. Ja sam se obratio ga u intervjua, tvitova, i blog poruka, ali znam da je još nejasno da neke. Dozvolite mi da i dalje pokušavaju postaviti rekord ravno: Nikada nisam u penziji.

u 2012, najavio sam da ću biti "gaženje od glazbe." Da, Znam da to zvuči penziju-ish, ali ja namjerno nisam koristio tu riječ. I stalno je namjerno nejasan, jer nisam bio 100% siguran šta bi to izgledalo.

Znao sam da je moguće da je "The Good Life" je bio moj zadnji album, ali nisam bila sigurna. Evo šta sam znao: ne bi bilo veliki prioritet pomak koji bi drastično promijeniti kako sam se odnose na glazbu. Ne bih bio na putu sa svojim kolegama Emcees koliko. Ne bih bio u stanju da ručica gomilu nove muzike. I ne bi bilo puno radno vrijeme reper. Znao sam da želim da pomognem pastor Božje crkve.

Od tog vremena, Ja sam služio u mojoj crkvi u Vašingtonu D.C. u raznim pastoral ulogama. Radio sam admin rad, propovijedanje i nastava, ministarstvo za mlade, bračno savjetovanje, itd. Otišao sam mjeseci bez činjenja neke emisije ili pisanje jednog bar pesme zbog crkve odgovornosti. Čak sam sat kroz 2013 Unashamed Tour. I iako sam propustio stvaranju nove muzike, Volim ono što radim. pitanja zdravlja su napravili to izazov s vremena na vreme, ali to je bila nagrada sezona za moju porodicu i mene.

novi album

Nakon te prve godine s punim radnim vremenom pastoral ministarstvo, Odlučio sam da se polako početi rad na novom albumu. Moj kreativni sokovi su u sebi, i bio sam spreman da idem. Ali, umjesto pet ili šest mjeseci rafal non-stop pisanja i snimanja, ovaj album je bio spor i stabilan od glazbe nije bio moj punim radnim vremenom. To ispalo sjajno, jer sam mogao polako osmisliti svaku pesmu, i da ga što bliže do savršenstva moguće.

Odlučio sam da radim sa jednim producentom ovaj put, umjesto da prihvati argumente staze od gomile različitih momci. Kada sam doveo na ideju da Gawvi on to volio, i ubacili smo jedni drugima da se nešto neverovatno. Svaki put sam se u Atlantu je bilo presudno, jer je bilo tako teško dobiti daleko od porodice i crkve dužnosti. Ali tu smo više od godinu dana kasnije, i to je skoro van!

Znam da neki ljudi još uvijek zbunjeni o tome što očekivati ​​od mene u budućnosti. Postoji mnogo nepoznanica za mene, ali reći ću ti šta ja znam:

– I dalje želim da budem pastor.
– I dalje želim da uradim muziku.
– I dalje žele da putuju rap i govoriti.
– I dalje želim da pišu knjige.

I ja pokušavam da saznam kako i ako ja mogu učiniti sve te stvari na način koji poštuje Boga, dok je još bio vjeran svojoj porodici i Božje crkve.

volja “rasti” biti moj posljednji album? To može biti, ali nadam se da nije. Za sada, Želim uživati ​​u trenutku i podijeliti s vama sve ono što mislim da je moj najbolji rad još. Mnogo toga se promijenilo od 2012, ali jedna stvar ostaje ista: Isus je Gospod, i želim da mu čast svojom muzikom.

    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, muzika, 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.

    Respectfully,
    Tony

    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, nastava, muzika, and family in an awesome way. That’s why I’ll continue to support him in his endeavors, and as he mentioned “Isus je Gospod, and I want to honor Him…” ja kažem, 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.

    putovanje, 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. putovanje, 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. Be blessed!

    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.

    Much Love

  13. Sarahodgovor

    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. You, 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 am always stirred up and encouraged by Trip’s artistry. I praise God for that brother. I hope he moves to Atlanta so we can build.

    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. God Bless.

  17. CBodgovor

    putovanje, 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!

    PS – 20/20 was BOSS!! Lol

    putovanje, 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. ne. 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. nazdravlje.

    Some just didn’t catch your words of prophecy, that you weren’t just referring to God being on his Brett Favre.

    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.

    putovanje–

    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. God Bless!

    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. (By the way, 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.
