itxaron, Bidaia - ez zuen erretiroa?

Duela pare bat hilabete denek harritu nintzen marka album berri bat iragarriz, “Rise.” Ez duzu ulertzen nola gogor horri buruz isildu nire etiketa aurretik izan zen eta publikoaren joan nintzen. Album zuen lanak izan dira urte bat baino gehiago, eta ezin dut itxaron guztiontzat kontatzeko - batez ere mantendu denean dut zerbait berria jaregiten zen galdetuz horiek.

Erantzuna orain arte sakonki pozgarria izan da. Harriturik gelditu jendeak me laguntzen jarraitu dute nago Nik ere nahiko lasaia da azken bi urtetan. Zure maitasun eta ilusioz bakarrik handitu egin da nirea.

erretiro

erantzunak ez nintzen harritu bat honako hau izan zen: "itxaron, erretiratu zenuela?"Hau honela, nire inguruan itzala bezala, galdera da. Nik badut bertan elkarrizketak, tweets, eta blog mezu, baina oraindik ez da unclear batzuk jakin nuen. Let erregistro zuzen ezartzeko saiatzen jarraituko me: Ez dut sekula erretiratu.

In 2012, litzaidake dut izan iragarri I "kanpoan zapaltzeko music from." Bai, Soinuak erretiro-ish ezagutzen dut, baina I nahita ez zuen hitz hori erabili. nahita vague mantendu dut, ez nintzelako 100% Ziur zer itxura litzateke.

Banekien posible zen "The Good Life" nire azken diskoa izan zen, baina ez nengoen seguru. Hona hemen zer jakin nuen: han lehentasunezko aldaketa handi hori litzateke erabat aldatu nola lotutako musika I izango litzateke. Ez nuke nire ikaskide emcees errepidean bezainbeste. Ez nuke biradera musika berrien sorta bat gai izan. Ez nuke bat lanaldi osoan raperoa izan. artzain Jainkoaren eliza lagundu nahi nuen banekien.

Harrez geroztik, Nik nire Eliza Washington D.C at zerbitzatu. pastoral hainbat rol. admin lan egin dut, predicationea eta irakaskuntza, gazte ministerio, zibilaren aholkularitza, etc. hilabete joan zaizkit abesti baten barra bakar bat eliza erantzukizunak delako egiten edo idazten gabe. are eseri nintzen atera du 2013 Lotsarik Gabe Tour. Eta nahiz eta nik musika berria sortzeko galduak, zer egiten ari Nik maite dut. Osasun arazo bihurtu dute erronka une, baina izan da nire familia eta ni aberasgarria denboraldi bat.

Bilduma New

full-time pastoral ministerio lehen urtean Horren ondoren, poliki-poliki hasiko errekor berria, lan egitea erabaki nuen. Nire sormen zukuak izan dira botilaratutako eman, eta joan prest nengoen. Baina horren ordez, bost edo sei hilabetean ez-stop idatziz eta grabaketa lehertu baten, album honek motela eta danborrada zen musika ez zen nire denbora osoko lana geroztik. Hori lan handia astiro izan dut abesti bakoitzaren artisautza delako, eta perfekzioa ahalik eta itxi gisa.

ekoizle bat denbora honekin lan egitea erabaki nuen, ordez pista onartuz bidalketak mutilak ezberdinak sorta batetik. Noiz ideia ekarri Gawvi behar dut maite zuen, eta elkarrengandik zerbait sinestezina egiteko bultzatu dugu. bidaia bakoitza egin Atlanta dut erabakigarria izan zen hain gogorra izan zen ihes egiteko familia eta elizako betebeharrak delako. Baina hemen, urte bat baino gehiago dugu geroago, eta ia out!

Ezagutzen dut pertsona batzuk daude oraindik zer den me espero etorkizunean buruz nahastu. Badira niretzat zalantza asko, baina esango dizut zer jakin nahi dut:

– oraindik artzain bat izan nahi dut.
– oraindik musika egin nahi dut.
– oraindik rap eta hitz egiten bidaiatu nahi dut.
– oraindik liburuak idatzi nahi dut.

Eta jakiteko nola edo bada gauza horiek guztiak egin ahal izango dut Jainkoaren ohoreak modu bat ari naiz, oraindik ere, nire familia eta Jainkoaren Eliza leial izan bitartean.

Will “Rise” izan nire azken diskoa? Gerta daiteke, baina ez espero dut. Oraingoz, Une gozatzeko, eta duzun guztia partekatzeko zer uste dut nire lanik onena da oraindik nahi dut. Asko aldatu 2012, baina gauza bat bera izaten jarraitzen du: Jesus Jauna da, eta hura ohoratu nire musika egin nahi dut.

    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, musika, 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.

    errespetuz,
    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, irakaskuntza, musika, and family in an awesome way. That’s why I’ll continue to support him in his endeavors, and as he mentioned “Jesus Jauna da, and I want to honor Him…” Nik esaten dut, 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.

    Trip leeyour life and passion for Jesus amazes me!! 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!!!

  4. MattShaferErantzun

    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. VICTORKHIZErantzun

    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.

  6. litzatekeErantzun

    Bidaia, 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. Bidaia, 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 bedeinkatu!

  8. Robert MayErantzun

    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

  11. SarahErantzun

    Much respect for you, Bidaia 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.

  12. BrandonErantzun

    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.

  13. ErickCorralErantzun

    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, Bidaia 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.

  14. CBErantzun

    Bidaia, 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 & zure familia, 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!

    I’m happy for you bro. I know you’ll do whatever God is asking of you. But for you to say this is your best work yet..I’m really excited to hear what God has been laying on your heart through the music. God bless you man and thanks for teaching me all the things you have through you music.

    PS – 20/20 was BOSS!! lol

  16. AustinRobertsErantzun

    Bidaia, 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. Ez. 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. Jainkoak bedeinka.

  17. DrowningInGraceErantzun

    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 eta Bakea.

    Bidaia–

    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. (Bide batez, 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).

    Jainkoak bedeinka duzu 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.
