기다림, 여행 - 당신은 은퇴하지 않았다?

몇 달 전 나는 새로운 앨범을 발표하여 모두를 놀라게, “오르기.” 당신은 내 레이블 전에 그것에 대해 조용히하는 것이 얼마나 어려운 이해가 안 나는 공개했다. 앨범은 년 이상 작품에 있었다, 나는 모든 사람에게 기다릴 수 없습니다 - 특히 내가 뭔가 새로운 것을 포기했을 때 묻는 유지하는 사람들.

반응은 지금까지 깊게 고무적이었다. 나는 지난 2 년 동안 꽤 조용했다하더라도 나는 사람들이 나를 지원하기 위해 계속하는 것이 놀라 울뿐입니다. 당신의 사랑과 흥분은 내 증가.

조기 퇴직

나는 의해 놀라게하지 않은 반응 중 하나는이 하나: "기다림, 나는 당신이 은퇴 생각?"이 그림자처럼 날 주위 다음 질문은. 나는 그것을 해결했습니다 인터뷰, 트윗, 과 블로그 게시물, 그러나 나는 그것이 일부에 여전히 불분명 알고. 내가 기록을 바로 설정하려고 계속하자: 나는 은퇴하지.

에서 2012, 내가 할 것이라고 발표했다 "음악에서 멀리 스테핑."예, 나는 은퇴 틱 소리를 알고, 하지만 난 의도적으로 그 단어를 사용하지 않았다. 내가 없었기 때문에 나는 의도적으로 모호 유지 100% 그것이 어떻게 보이는지 확인.

"좋은 생활"내 마지막 앨범이라고 나는 그것이 가능한 것을 알고 있었다, 그러나 나는 확실하지 않았다. 여기에 내가 알지 못했다 무엇: 크게 나는 음악에 관한 방법을 변경할 것 거대한 우선 순위의 변화가있을 것입니다. 나는 많은 동료 emcees와 도로에 밖으로되지 않을 것. 나는 새로운 음악의 무리를 흔들 수 없을 것입니다. 나는 풀 타임 래퍼되지 않을 것. 나는 목사 하나님의 교회를 돕고 싶었 알고 있었다.

그때부터, 나는 워싱턴 D.C 내 교회에서 봉사했습니다. 다양한 목회 역할. 나는 관리 작업을 수행 한, 설교와 가르침, 청소년 사역, 결혼 상담, 기타. 때문에 나는 교회의 책임 노래의 한 줄을 어떤 프로그램을 수행하거나 작성하지 않고 개월 갔다. 난 밖으로 앉았다 2013 부끄러워 투어. 그리고 새로운 음악을 만드는 놓친하지만, 내가 뭘했는지 사랑. 건강 문제는 항상이 도전 만든, 하지만 내 가족과 나를 위해 보람있는 시즌이었다.

새 앨범

풀 타임 목회 사역의 첫 해 이후, 나는 천천히 새로운 기록 작업을 시작하기로 결정. 나의 창조적 인 주스는 최대 병에 있었다, 나는 갈 준비가되어 있었다. 하지만 그 대신 논스톱 작성 및 기록의 5 ~ 6 개월 버스트, 음악은 나의 풀 타임 일이 아니다 이후이 앨범은 느리고 꾸준한이었다. 나는 천천히 각 노래를 만들 수도 있기 때문 좋은 밖으로 일, 가능한 한 완벽하게 그것을 가까이 가져.

나는 하나의 생산이 시간에 일을하기로 결정, 대신 다른 사람의 무리에서 트랙을 접수 중. 내가 Gawvi에 아이디어를 가져왔다 때 그는 그것을 사랑, 우리는 서로 믿을 수없는 무언가를 만들기 위해 밀어. 가족과 교회의 의무에서 도망 열심히했기 때문에 내가 애틀랜타에 대한 모든 여행은 매우 중요했다. 그러나 여기에서 우리는 나중에 년 이상입니다, 그리고 그것은 거의 밖으로이다!

나는 어떤 사람들은 여전히​​ 미래에 나에게 무엇을 기대해야하는지에 대해 혼란 알고. 나를 위해 많은 미지수가있다, 내가 아는 어떤하지만 난 당신을 말할 것이다:

– 나는 아직도 목사가되고 싶어요.
– 나는 여전히 음악을하고 싶어.
– 나는 아직도 랩과 이야기 여행 싶어.
– 난 아직도 책을 쓰고 싶어.

그리고 나는 내가 하나님을 존중하는 방식으로 그 모든 일을 할 수있는 방법이나 있는지 확인하기 위해 노력하고있어, 여전히 내 가족과 하나님의 교회에 충실하면서.

의지 “오르기” 내 마지막 앨범이 될? 그것은 수, 하지만 난하지 희망. 지금은, 나는이 순간을 즐기고 내 최고의 작품은 아직 생각을 여러분 모두와 함께 공유 할. 많은 이후 변경된 2012, 하지만 한 가지는 동일하게 유지: 예수님은 주님 이시다, 그리고 나는 나의 음악으로 하나님을 공경 할.

    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, 음악, 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, 가르치는, 음악, and family in an awesome way. That’s why I’ll continue to support him in his endeavors, and as he mentioned “예수님은 주님 이시다, and I want to honor Him…” 내가 말하다, 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.

    여행, 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. 여행, 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 respect for you, 여행 리. 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, 여행 리, 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. 하나님은 축복.

    여행, 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 & 너의 가족, 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!

    여행, 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. 아니. 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. 하나님은 축복.

    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. 하나님은 축복!

    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. (그런데, 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).

    하나님은 당신 브로 축복. 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.
