Payin, Geştname - Ma tu ne teqawud?

A couple months ago ez ji hemû kesî bi daxuyanî a album brand new, şaş, “Lihevderketin.” Hûn fêm nakin ev çiqas bi zehmet kerr ser wê berî label min bû û ez giştî çû. Di albûmê de di karên ji bo salekê zêdetir bû, û min nikaribû li benda her kesî re dibêjim - bi taybetî yên ku digot, gava ez kême tiştekî nû.

Bersiva heta niha hatiye kûr bi hêvî bû. Ez şaş ku mirov berdewam ji bo piştgiriya min im, tevî ku ez ji bo du salên dawîn de pretty bêdeng been. hezkirin û heyecana xwe bi tenê bi min zêde.

Teqawîdiyê zû

Yek ji bersivên ez matmayî ne bi ev yek bû: "Payin, Min digot qey ez te teqawît?"Ev pirsa ku ji min re wiha li dora wek siya e. Min di gotarek kiriye hevpeyvînan de, dardakirin, û Mesajên blog, lê ez dizanim ew hê jî ne diyar e ku hin. Bila ji min re bi berdewamî hewl pêkir record de: Ez qet teqawît.

Li 2012, Ez ragihand ku, ez ê be "giranîya xwe ji music." Yes, Ez dizanim, ku dengên teqawid-kurdî, lê ez mebest ew e ku peyvê bi kar tînin ne. Ez hê jî ew bi zanebûn -ji ber ku ez ne 100% ka ew dê çawa xuya bike.

Min dizanîbû ku ev gengaz bû ku, "The Life baş" last album min bû, lê ez bawer bû, ne. Li vir tiştê ku min nas: dê bibe guherîna pêşanî mezin ya ku di kontrola wê çawa ez related to music biguherîne tune. Ez dê ne li ser rê bi emcees hevalê min be ku bi qasî. Ez ne dê bikarin meşeke mezin ji gelek çivîkan music nû. Ez dê bibe rapper full time ne. Min dizanibû, min xwest ji bo alîkariya dêra keşekî Xwedê.

Ji ber ku wê demê, Ez li ser dêra min li Washington D.C xizmeta. Di rolên cihê pastoral. Ez kar admin kirine, peyivîn û hînkirinê, wezareta ciwanan, şêwrê di zewacê, hwd.. Ez mehan bêyî kirina tu nîşan dide an nivîsandina bar yek ji strana ji ber berpirsyariyên dêra çû. Heta ez rûniştim ji 2013 Tour bi serberzî,. Û ku ez bûbûm afirandina music nû, Ez hez dikim, tiştê ku min dîtin çi kiriye. pirsgirêkên tenduristiyê ew kiriye di demên zehmet de, Lê belê ev demekê bi xelat, ji bo ez û malbata xwe ji min.

Album New

Piştî ku di sala pêşî yên full-time wezareta pastoral, Min biryar da ku hêdî hêdî li ser dixebitin rekorek nû dest pê. juices creative min şûşê bûbû, û ez amade me herim bû. Lê belê di şûna a teqīn pênc an şeş meha non-stop nivîs û qeyda, ev album hêdî û tevlê bû ji ber ku music bû karê full time min ne. Ku kar ji mezin ji ber ku ez hêdî hêdî nikaribû her song craft, û wê weke nêzîkî tekûziyê ku mimkun.

Min biryar da ku kar bi yek hilberîneran de vê carê, li şûna ku qebûl radestkirî track ji komek ji şagirtên cuda. Dema ku ez bi fikra ji bo Gawvi anî ew jî hez, û em dehf hev û din ji bo ku tiştek ecêb dike. Her trip ez ji Atlanta kirin gelek girîng bû, ji ber ku pir zehmet bû ku ji erkên malbatî û dêra. Lê di vir de em li ser a sala ne paşê, û ew hema hema ji!

Ez dizanim hin kes hîn jî li ser tiştên ku ji bo hêvî ji min re di pêşerojê de tevlihev. in Selena gelek ji bo min heye, lê ez ê ji te re bêjin ka ez nizanim:

– Ez hîn jî dixwazin ku bibin keşekî.
– Ez hîn jî dixwazin ji bo ku ez music.
– Ez hîn jî dixwazin bi Troçkî rap û diaxivin.
– Ez hîn jî dixwazin ji bo nivîsandina pirtûkan.

Û ez hewl bibînin ku çawa, yan eger ez tevahiya wan ên ku tiştên bi awayekî ku Xwedê qedir û do, hê dilsoz ji bo malbata min û civîna bawermendan a Xwedê tê.

Xwestek “Lihevderketin” be cara album min? Ev dikare bibe, lê ez hêvî ne. ji bo niha, Ez dixwazim ji huneran gavê û parvekirinên bi we hemûyan Ez çi difikirim, best karê min yet e. Gelek ji sala hatiye guhertin 2012, lê tiştek di heman dimîne: Ku Îsa Xudan e, û ez dixwazim ji wî re hurmetê bi music min.

    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, mûzîk, 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.

    rêzdariyê,
    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, hînkirina, mûzîk, and family in an awesome way. That’s why I’ll continue to support him in his endeavors, and as he mentioned “Ku Îsa Xudan e, and I want to honor Him…” Ez dibêjim, 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!!!

  4. MattShaferBersiv

    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.

    ERÊ! 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.

  7. Bersiv

    Gerr, 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. Gerr, 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. pîroz be,!

    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

  12. SarahBersiv

    Much respect for you, Geştname 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. Hûn, 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.

  13. AshleyBersiv

    Geştname Awesome! Keep going where He leads youand please share all of your amazing experiences with us as you go!

    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.

  15. ErickCorralBersiv

    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, Geştname 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. Dizanim çawa.

  16. CBBersiv

    Gerr, 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!

    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!! Pir ken

    Gerr, 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. Na. 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. Dizanim çawa.

  19. LIllianBersiv

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

  20. GabeTavianoBersiv

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

  21. DrowningInGraceBersiv

    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.

    Gerr–

    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. Dizanim çawa! Tamsyn, South Africa

  24. JesiliaLeaupepeBersiv

    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. (Birastî, 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).

    Xwedê pîroz tu dînî. 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.
