tatari, Trip - kihai ianei koe Haere?

marama te tokorua mua miharo ahau katoa mā te kauwhau i te pukaemi hou waitohu, “whakatika.” E kore koe e matau me pehea pakeke ko reira ki te pupuri i ata e pā ana ki reira i te aroaro o toku tapanga, a haere ana ahau tūmatanui. kua te album i roto i nga mahi hoki i runga i te tau, a kihai i taea e ahau tatari ki te korero ki te katoa - ina koa te hunga e pupuri ui, i ahau e maturuturu te tahi mea hou.

Te whakautu i pera tae noa kua hohonu fakalototo'a. Au miharo e kua tonu te iwi ki te tautoko i ahau e ahau ahakoa kua kua e ahau tino ata mo te rua tau e whakamutunga. kua nui haere anake koutou aroha me te oaoa toku.

Retirement wawe

Ko tētahi o nga urupare e kore ahau i maere e ko tenei tetahi: "Taihoa, whakaaro ahau mutu koutou?"Ko te pātai e whai ana i ahau a tawhio noa, ano he atarangi tenei. kua whakatutuki e ahau i te reira i roto i uiuinga, tweets, a pou rangitaki, engari e mohio ana ahau ki te reira tonu mārama ki etahi. Kia tonu ahau ki te ngana ki te whakaturia te record tika: e kore ahau mutu.

i roto i te 2012, kauwhautia e ahau e hiahia kia ahau "takahi atu i te waiata." Ae, e mohio ana ahau e tangi whakatā-tangata, engari ahau opua kihai i whakamahi e kupu. puritia e ahau i te reira te hinaaro nuinga ki no te mea kahore i ahau 100% tino aha e titiro i te reira rite.

i mohio ahau ia e taea te ko "Te ora pai" toku pukaemi whakamutunga, otiia kihai i ahau tino. Tenei te aha i mohio ahau: reira e riro te neke matua nui e e matemate huri pehea ahau e pā ana ki te waiata. e kore ahau e i roto i runga i te ara ki oku hoa emcees rite nui. e kore ahau e taea ki te crank i te paihere o te puoro hou. e kore ahau e waiho hei Rapper wā tonu. i mohio ahau hinaaro e ahau ki te āwhina i te hahi minita o te Atua.

Mai taua wa, Kua kua ahau te taviniraa i toku hahi i roto i Washington D.C. i roto i te ngā tūranga whira. kua mahi ahau mahi admin, pororaa me te whakaako, mahi minita to'u tupú, tohutohu faaipoiporaa, etc. haere ahau marama, kahore mahi i tetahi whakaaturanga ranei tuhi i te pae kotahi o te waiata no te kawenga hahi. ara noho ahau i roto i te 2013 Tour whai maiatanga ai. A ahakoa i ngaro ahau te hanga waiata hou, aroha ahau te mea kua ahau i mahi. kua hanga take hauora wero i te reira i te mau taime, engari kua ngā reira he wa fakafiefia mo toku utuafare, me ahau.

Album New

I muri i te tuatahi i taua tau o-wā tonu mahi minita pāriha, faaoti ahau ki te āta timata te mahi i runga i te rekoata hou. Oku inu auaha i putanga ake, a ko ahau rite ki te haere. Otiia hei utu mo o te pakaru e rima e ono ranei marama o te tuhituhi mutu-kore, me te tuhi, ko puhoi a on tenei album mai kahore i waiata toku mahi wā tonu. E mahi i roto i nui no te āta ahau i taea e waihanga ia waiata, a tiki te reira rite tata ki te tino rite taea.

faaoti ahau ki te mahi ki tetahi tenei wa kaihanga, hei utu mo o tali tukunga ara i te paihere o te eé rerekē. A, no te ahau ka kawea te whakaaro ki Gawvi aroha ia te reira, a panaia matou tahi e te tahi ki te hanga i te tahi mea maere. Nga haerenga hanga ahau ki a Atlanta i mahu'inga no te mea ko reira na uaua ki te tiki atu i te utuafare, a te hahi mau ohipa. Ko konei ko matou i runga i te tau i muri mai, a te reira tata i roto i!

e matau ana ahau kei te raruraru tonu etahi iwi e pā ana ki te mea ki te tatari i ahau i roto i te heke mai. He maha unknowns hoki ahau, engari ka korerotia e ahau ki a koutou te mea e ahau e mohio:

– hiahia tonu ahau ki te waiho i te minita.
– hiahia tonu ahau ki te mahi i te waiata.
– hiahia tonu ahau ki te haere ki te rap, ka korero.
– hiahia tonu ahau ki te tuhituhi pukapuka.

A tamata nei ahau ki te kitea i roto i te pehea, ki te ranei e taea te mahi ahau katoa o nga mea i roto i te ara e whakahonore Atua, i te tonu pono ki toku utuafare, me te hahi a te Atua.

e “whakatika” hei toku pukaemi whakamutunga? i taea e te reira, otiia e kore ahau e tumanako. hoki inaianei, e hiahia ana ahau ki te oaoa i te taime a faaite atu ia outou katoa he aha ahau whakaaro ko toku mahi pai ano. Kua puta ke te rota mai 2012, engari kotahi te mea tonu te taua: Ihu Ko te Ariki, a hiahia ki te whakahonore ia ki toku waiata ahau.

    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, waiata, 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,
    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, whakaako, waiata, and family in an awesome way. That’s why I’ll continue to support him in his endeavors, and as he mentioned “Ihu Ko te Ariki, and I want to honor Him…” mea ahau, 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.

  3. DavidQuinonesWhakautu

    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. MattShaferWhakautu

    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. VICTORKHIZWhakautu

    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. TeriaWhakautu

    Trip, 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. Trip, 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. HaraWhakautu

    Much respect for you, Trip 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. AshleyWhakautu

    Trip 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.

  14. ErickCorralWhakautu

    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, Trip 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. Whakapaingia te Atua.

  15. CBWhakautu

    Trip, 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!! LoL

  17. AustinRobertsWhakautu

    Trip, 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. No. 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. manaaki te Atua.

  18. LIllianWhakautu

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

  19. GabeTavianoWhakautu

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

  20. DrowningInGraceWhakautu

    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.
    Te aroha noa me te rangimarie.

    Trip–

    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. Whakapaingia te Atua! Tamsyn, South Africa

  23. JesiliaLeaupepeWhakautu

    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. (E te ara, 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).

    manaaki te Atua Bro koe. 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.
