待つ, 旅 - あなたは引退しませんでした?

数ヶ月前、私はブランドの新しいアルバムを発表して皆を驚かせました, “上昇.” あなたはそれが私のラベルの前にそれについて静かに保つことでしたいかに難しいかを理解していないと私は上場しました. アルバムは一年以上の作品になっていました, そして、私は皆に伝えるために待つことができませんでした - 特に私は新しい何かを落としたときに問い続けた人たち.

応答は、これまで深く励みとなっています. 私は最後の2年間はかなり静かであったにも関わらず、私は人々が私をサポートし続けていることを驚いて. あなたの愛と興奮は鉱山が増加しています.

早期退職

私はによって驚かれませんでした応答の一つは、この1でした: "待つ, 私は、あなたが引退したと思いました?「これは影のように私を周り、次の質問です. 私は、それに対処してきました インタビュー, ツイート, そして ブログ記事, 私はそれがいくつかにまだ不明であることを知っています. 私は記録をまっすぐに設定しようとしていきましょう: 私は引退することはありません.

に 2012, 私はなるだろうと発表した "音楽から離れてステッピング。"はい, 私は退職っぽいの音を知っています, 私は意図的にその言葉を使用していませんでした. 私はありませんでしたので、私はそれが意図的に曖昧に保ちます 100% それがどのように見えるかを確認してください.

「グッドライフ」は私の最後のアルバムだったと私はそれが可能だった知っていました, しかし、私は確認されませんでした. ここで私は知っていたものです: 大幅に私は、音楽に関連した方法を変更するであろう巨大な優先順位のシフトが存在することになります. 私は同じくらい私の仲間emceesと道路に出ないであろう. 私は新しい音楽の束をクランクすることができないであろう. 私はフルタイムのラッパーではありません. 私は牧師神​​の教会を助けるために知っていました.

あの時以来, 私はワシントンD.Cで私の教会で務めてきました. 様々な牧歌的な役割で. 私は、管理者の作業を行ってきました, 説教と教育, 青年ミニストリー, 結婚カウンセリング, 等. 私はショーをやったりなぜなら、教会の責任の曲の1つのバーを記述せずに数ヶ月を行ってきました. 私も欠場 2013 あからさまなツアー. そして、私は新しい音楽を作る逃したものの, 私は私が何をしてきた愛. 健康上の問題は時間でそれがやりがいてきました, それは私の家族と私のための実りの季節となっています.

ニューアルバム

フルタイムパストラル省の最初の年後, 私はゆっくりと、新しいレコードに作業を開始することを決定しました. 私の創造力は、最大瓶詰めされていました, そして、私は行く準備ができていました. しかし、その代わりにノンストップの書き込み、記録の5または6ヶ月のバーストの, このアルバムは、音楽は私のフルタイムの仕事ではありませんでしたので、ゆっくりと着実でした. 私はゆっくりとそれぞれの曲を作る可能性があるため、それは素晴らしいこと働い, そして可能な限り完璧にそれがのように近づきます.

私は1つのプロデューサーで動作するように、この時間を決定しました, 代わりに別の男の束からトラックの提出を受け入れます. 私はGawviにアイデアを持ってきたとき、彼はそれを愛しました, 私たちは信じられないものを作るためにお互いをプッシュ. 家族や教会の職務から離れて取得することに一生懸命だったので、私はアトランタに行われたすべての旅行は非常に重要でした. しかし、ここで私たちは、今年後半を超えています, そしてそれはほとんどアウトです!

私はいくつかの人々はまだ将来的には私から期待するかについて混乱している知っています. 私のために多くの未知数があります。, 私が知っている何が、私はあなたを教えてあげましょう:

– 私はまだ牧師になりたいです.
– 私はまだ音楽をやってみたいです.
– 私はまだラップと話すように旅行したいです.
– 私はまだ本を書きたいです.

そして私は、私は神を称えるような方法でそれらのもののすべてを行うことができますどのようにかどうかを確認しようとしています, まだ私の家族と神の教会に忠実でありながら、.

意志 “上昇” 私の最後のアルバムであります? かもしれない, 私はないと思い. 今のところ, 私は瞬間を楽しみ、私が何を考えてあなたのすべてと共有したいまだ私の最高の作品です. 多くは、以降に変更されました 2012, しかし、一つのことは同じまま: イエスは主です, そして、私は私の音楽で彼を尊重したいです.

    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, 音楽, 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,

    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, 教え, 音楽, and family in an awesome way. That’s why I’ll continue to support him in his endeavors, and as he mentioned “イエスは主です, and I want to honor Him…” 私は言う, 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.

  4. MattShafer応答

    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. VICTORKHIZ応答

    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. でしょう応答

    旅行, 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. 旅行, 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

  11. Sarah応答

    Much respect for you, トリップ・リー. 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.

  14. ErickCorral応答

    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, トリップ・リー, 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. 神のご加護を.

  15. CB応答

    旅行, 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 & あなたの家族, 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!! 笑

  17. AustinRoberts応答

    旅行, 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. いいえ. 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. 神のご加護を.

    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. 神のご加護を!

    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. (ところで, 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).

    神はあなたが仲間の祝福します. 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.
