Aspettate, Viaghju - ùn Did You Alloggi?

A coppia months ago I surpris ugnunu da annunziava una marca novu album, “Acchianata.” Ùn vi capì u perchè cumu dura fantasia Ti pisciulia a teniri carmu supra lu davanti à u mio etichetta è I addivintau pubbricu. U silenziu era statu in l 'opiri di più di un annu, è ùn aghju pussutu aspittà à dì à tutti: - in particulare quelli chì ci dumandemu quannu mi vinni dropping name qualcosa novu.

A risposta tantu luntanu hè statu assai attivu prumossi. Iu sugnu maravigliati ca genti hannu cuntinuatu a pussede micca à mè ancu s'è Corsu a francisata troppu hè beddu tranquillu pi l 'urtimi dui anni. U vostru amuri è ribbellu hà cresce sulu a meia.

Case Rustaghja

Unu di i risposti ùn era Purtivechju par era stu unu: "Aspettate, Aghju pensatu vi cuncedu?"Chistu è la dumanna ca mi seguita intornu cum'è un 'ombra. Corsu a francisata troppu infurmazione hè in bellucci, Dating, e i posti bloggu, ma ju sacciu qualle ancora vidu a arcuni. Chì mi cuntinuvà à pruvà à rifà u drittu drittu a memoria: I mai ritirata.

in 2012, I annunciau ca mi d'esse "Stepping luntanu da a musica." Cussu, Lu sacciu ca la sirena di ritirati-ish, ma aghju Cummirciali nun usari la palora. Aghju tinutu intentionally jardinier perchè ùn era 100% sicuru chi si putìssiru assumiglianu.

Sapiu chì era pussìbbili ca "The Good Life" era u mio noms de Fotoalbum, ma ju nun era sicuru. Quì l'ciò chì mi hanu cunnisciutu: ci saria un tempurale passata di priurità ca avissi canciari assai comu I riguardanti music. Nun saria ancu nantu à a strada cù u mo feritu emcees comu assai. Nun saria in gradu di vitres fora di na calata di novu musica. I nun puteva essiri na Narcis à tempu pienu. Mi sò avvistu chì mi vulia à aiutà chiesa military di Diu.

Dapoi quellu tempu, Corsu a francisata troppu hè u sirviziu di a mio ghjesgia in Washington D.C. in diverse attività pasturali. M'anu fattu u travagliu Admin, pridichendu e riforme, ministeru di ghjuventù, Muratori chiuvuta, etc.. Ivi mesi senza qualsìasi, mostra, o scriviri na singula barra di una canzona per via di e rispunsabilità église. I anchi si messe fora u 2013 Tour Unashamed. È s'è I mancàt criannu nova mùsica, Mi piaci chiddu chi pensu è statu jittatu. resultati Salute ani fattu lu scopu simule à i tempi, ma hè propiu una stagione arricchimentu di a me famiglia è à mè.

New Album

Doppu ca primu annu di china-tempu ministeru pasturali, Aghju dicisu di principià pianu pianu a travagghiari supra na nova casa discugràfica. I mo suchju di criativu era statu buttiglia à, e ju era prontu ad andà. Ma 'nveci di' na cincu o sei mesi di Ursic di scriviri non-riparu e ncisioni, cet album fu lentu e stàbbili dipoi musica ùn era u mio mistieru à tempu pienu. Chì travaglia fora granni, pirchì mi pudia pianu pianu fà ogni canzona, e ricevu comu vicinu à maturà pussibuli.

Aghju dicisu à u travagliu cù unu pruduttori di stu tempu, 'nveci di accittà submissions pista da una calata di diffirenti ragazzi. Quandu ti purtavu lu scopu di fari Gawvi ch'ellu amava lu, e noi alluntanati tra d 'iddi a fari quarchi cosa incredibili. Ogni viaghju aghju fattu a Atlanta era una rifarenza picchì era accussì forti, a brama d 'andà da funziuna di famiglia è ghjesgia. Ma quì, simu più di un annu dopu, e qualle quasi fora!

Sapendu certi pirsuni sunnu sempri cunfusu pi chiddu a m'aspettu da mè à l 'avvene. Cci sunnu tanti unknowns di mè, ma ora ti dicu chiddu chi sapiti:

– I ancora vogghiu essiri un military.
– I ancora voli fari musica.
– I ancora vogliu viaghjà à Rap e di parlà.
– I ancora vogghiu scrìviri libbra.

È mi sentu circannu di scummigghiari quantu o s'ellu mi po 'fari tuttu di e cose in un modu chì a unurari Diu, mentri ancora essiri fideli à la me 'famigghia e chiesa di Diu.

sarà “Acchianata” esse u mio noms de Fotoalbum? Si pudia esse, ma iu nun speranza. per avà, Vogghiu a gudiri lu momentu e sparte cun voi tutti ciò ch'e pensu hè sempre a mo amica travagliu. Ci forri nu munzeddu hà cambiatu dipoi 2012, ma 'na cosa ferma sempre u listessu: Ghjesù, è u Signuruzzu, e mi vogghiu onore cù i me musica.

    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, musica, 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, nzignamentu, musica, and family in an awesome way. That’s why I’ll continue to support him in his endeavors, and as he mentioned “Ghjesù, è u Signuruzzu, and I want to honor Him…” a ti dicu, 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.

You really bless my heart. i am someone who loves authentic people and though i do not have a close relationship to you, that authenticity comes out through your music and your messages. i met you in Philadelphia at Carin University two years ago and it was a life-changing experiencemy dream is to one day work with you in ministry and in music…. keep the faith my friend!!!

    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.

  5. VICTORKHIZrispondi

    YES! THANK YOU FOR THIS BLOG POST TRIP! IT’S ENCOURAGING TO SEE THAT YOU ARE STILL OPEN TO MAKING MUSIC BUT AT THE SAME TIME ARE STAYING FAITHFUL TO THE MINISTRY IN THE CHURCH. YOU ARE ONE TALENTED DUDE. I LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING YOU LIVE ONCE AGAIN. PRAYING FOR YOU.

    viaghju, 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. viaghju, 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!

    I love how Trip Lee is doing what the Lord has called him to do. He is following the Lord and honoring him with his music. Keep doing what the Lord has called you to do.

    I am very excited to see that you are disciplined enough to slowly do music and be fully committed to your family and God’s Church. Can’t wait to hear your album though.

    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

    Much respect for you, viaghju Ventu. 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 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, viaghju Ventu, 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. Diu benedica.

  13. CBrispondi

    viaghju, 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

    viaghju, 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. Innò. 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. Diu benedica.

    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.
    Grace and Peace.

    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, à ringrazià ti. 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. Diu benedica! Tamsyn, South Africa

    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.
