rete tann, Sòti a - Pa t 'Ou Pran Retrèt?

mwa Yon koup de sa mwen sezi tout moun pa anonse yon mak nouvo album, “leve non.” Ou pa konprann ki jan difisil li te kenbe trankil sou l 'devan mete etikèt sou m' ak mwen te ale piblik. te Album lan te nan travay yo pou plis pase yon ane, ak mwen pa t 'kapab rete tann yo di tout moun - sitou sa yo ki kenbe mande lè m' te jete yon bagay nouvo.

Repons lan byen lwen tèlman te gen pwofondman ankouraje. Mwen sezi ke gen moun ki yo te kontinye sipòte m 'menm si mwen te te trè trankil pou de dènye ane yo. renmen ou ak eksitasyon te sèlman ogmante m '.

Pou pran retrèt byen bonè

Youn nan repons yo mwen pa te sipriz pa te yon sèl sa a: "Rete tann, Mwen te panse ou pran retrèt?"Sa a se kesyon an ki swiv m 'bò kote tankou yon lonbraj. Mwen te adrese l 'nan entèvyou, twi, ak posts blog, Men, mwen konnen li la toujou klè nan kèk. Kite m 'kontinye pou yo eseye mete tou dwat nan dosye: Mwen pa janm pran retrèt.

nan 2012, Mwen te anonse ke mwen ta dwe "kite lwen mizik." Wi, Mwen konnen sa ki son pou pran retrèt-ich, men mwen fè espre pa t 'sèvi mo sa a. Mwen te kenbe li entansyonèlman vag paske mwen pa t ' 100% fin sèten sa ki li ta sanble.

Mwen te konnen li te posib ke "lavi sa a Bon" se te album dènye mwen, men mwen te pa sèten. Men sa mwen t 'konnen: ta gen yon chanjman priyorite gwo ki ta byen wo chanje ki jan mwen ki gen rapò ak mizik. Mwen pa ta dwe soti sou wout la ak emcees ansanm ak mwen kòm anpil. Mwen pa ta kapab ak yon manivèl soti yon pakèt moun sou nouvo mizik. Mwen pa ta dwe yon rape a plen tan. Mwen te konnen mwen te vle ede legliz pastè Bondye a.

Depi lè sa a, Mwen te sèvi nan legliz mwen an nan Washington D.C. nan wòl divès kalite pastoral. Mwen te fè admin travay, predikasyon ak ansèyman, ministè jèn, konsèy marital, elatriye. Mwen te ale mwa san yo pa fè nenpòt montre oswa ekri yon bar sèl nan yon chante paske nan responsablite legliz. Mwen menm chita deyò nan 2013 Tour efronte. Epi menm si mwen rate kreye nouvo mizik, Mwen renmen sa Mwen te fè. pwoblèm sante te fè li difisil nan fwa, men li te gen yon sezon rekonpanse pou fanmi mwen ak m '.

nouvo album

Apre sa premye ane a plen tan ministè pastoral, Mwen deside tou dousman kòmanse ap travay sou yon nouvo dosye. ji kreyatif mwen te nan boutèy moute, epi mwen te pare yo ale. Men, olye pou yo yon pete senk oswa sis mwa nan ekri pa Peye-Stop ak anrejistreman, album sa a te ralanti ak fiks depi mizik pa t 'travay plen tan mwen. Sa te travay soti gwo paske mwen te kapab tou dousman navèt chak chante, epi pou yo jwenn li kòm fèmen nan pèfeksyon ke posib.

Mwen deside travay ak yon sèl pwodiktè tan sa a, olye pou yo aksepte soumèt tras soti nan yon pakèt moun sou mesye diferan. Lè mwen te fè lide nan Gawvi li te renmen li, epi nou pouse youn ak lòt fè yon bagay enkwayab. Chak vwayaj mwen te fè Atlanta te enpòtan paske li te sa difisil jwenn lwen nan men fanmi ak legliz devwa. Men, isit la nou gen plis pase yon ane pita, ak li a prèske soti!

Mwen konnen gen kèk moun ki toujou konfonn sou sa ou kapab espere nan men m 'nan tan kap vini an. Gen anpil inkonu pou m ', men mwen pral di ou sa m 'konnen:

– Mwen toujou vle gen yon pastè.
– Mwen toujou vle fè mizik.
– Mwen toujou vle pou vwayaje pou ale rap ak pale.
– Mwen toujou vle ekri liv.

Apre sa, mwen ap eseye chache konnen ki jan oswa si mwen ka fè tout nan bagay sa yo nan yon fason ki onore Bondye, pandan y ap toujou ke yo te fidèl nan fanmi mwen ak legliz Bondye a.

Èske “leve non” gen album dènye mwen? Li ta ka, men mwen pa espere. Pou kounye a, Mwen vle jwi moman sa a ak pataje avèk ou tout sa mwen panse ki pi bon travay mwen ankò. Yon anpil chanje depi 2012, men se yon sèl bagay rete menm jan an: Jezi se Seyè, e mwen vle pou bay lonè pou l 'ak mizik mwen.

    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, mizik, 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.

    respè,
    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, ansèyman, mizik, and family in an awesome way. That’s why I’ll continue to support him in his endeavors, and as he mentioned “Jezi se Seyè, and I want to honor Him…” mwen di, 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.

    Sòti a, 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. Sòti a, 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. Fè beni!

    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 respect for you, Sòti a 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. ou, 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, Sòti a 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. Bondye beni.

    Sòti a, 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 & fanmi ou, 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

    Sòti a, 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. Pa gen. 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. Bondye beni.

    Took the words right out of my mouth. I’m proud of you, Sòti a, and excited for everything you’re doin. :) Keep it up!

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

  21. DrowningInGraceReply

    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.

    Sòti a–

    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, mèsi. 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. Bondye beni!

We’re glad to be supporting you by buying your new album. (By wout la, 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).
