tali, Malaga - leʻi E faamalolo litaea?

O se ulugalii masina ua mavae sa ou ofo tagata uma i le faailoa atu o se ituaiga CD fou, “tulai.” E te le malamalama i le auala faigata sa e filemu ai e uiga i ai i luma o loʻu igoa ma sa ou alu lautele. sa le CD i le galuega mo le silia i se tausaga, ma le mafai ona ou faatali e taʻu atu i tagata uma - aemaise lava i latou oe na tausia ole atu ina ua pau o se mea fou.

O le tali e tusa ua loloto faamalosiau. Ou te ofo ua faaauau pea ona lagolagoina au e ui lava ua ou aulelei filemu mo le tele o tausaga mulimuli e lua o tagata. ua na ona faateleina lou alofa ma le fiafia loʻu.

le vave litaea

O se tasi o tali sa ou lē faateʻia e le o le tasi lenei: "Faatali, Sa ou mafaufau e litaea?"O le fesili lenei na faapea mai ia te au pei o se ata. Ou lauga ai i faatalanoaga, tweets, ma tesi pou, ae ou te iloa e le o manino pea i nisi. Sei ou faaauau pea ona taumafai e faatuina le saʻo faamaumauga: Ou te leʻi litaea.

i 2012, Ou te faasilasila atu o le a ou matua "laa ese mai le musika." Ioe, Ou te iloa e foliga mai e faamalolo litaea-¯ e, ae ou te faamoemoe na le faaaogaina lena upu. Ou tausia faʻanenefu le loto i ai ona sa ou le 100% mautinoa e pei o mea o le a vaai.

Sa ou iloaina e mafai e le "O Le Soifuaga Lelei" o laʻu CD mulimuli, ae sa ou le mautinoa. O mea nei ou te iloa: le ai ai se suiga faamuamua tele o le a suia tele le tagata le auala ou te fesootai i musika. Le a ou le i fafo i luga o le auala tele ma loʻu uso emcees. Ou te le mafai ona crank mai se vaega o le musika fou. Le a ou le a rapper taimi atoa. Sa ou iloa sa ou manao e fesoasoani i le lotu faifeau a le Atua.

Talu mai lena taimi, Sa ou auauna atu i laʻu ekalesia i Washington D.C. i matafaioi faa-faifeau eseese. Ou faia galuega tufa, talaʻi ma le aoao atu, autalavou galuega, fautuaga faaipoipoga, etc. Sa ou alu masina e aunoa ma le faia o so o se ata pe tusi se pa e tasi o se pese ona o tofiga i le ekalesia. Sa ou nofo i le 2013 Malaga Taamilo Unashamed. Ma e ui ou misia le fatuina o musika fou, Ou fiafia i mea sa ou faia. faia ai luitau mataupu o le soifua maloloina i taimi, ae o loo i ai se vaitau tauia mo au ma loʻu aiga.

CD New

Ina ua uma lena tausaga muamua o faamisiona galuega faa-faifeau, Sa ou filifili e amata galue lemu i luga o se matatia fou i. sa tuufaguina loʻu sua foafoa, ma sa ou sauni e alu. Ae nai lo o se lima po o le ono masina le mapuna aʻe o le lē taofia faiga tusitusia ma e pueina, sa gese ma tumau lenei CD talu mai le o laʻu galuega atoa taimi musika. O lena galue mai tele ona e mafai ona ou fausia lemu pese taitasi, ma maua ai o le latalata atu i le atoatoa e mafai ai.

Sa ou filifili loa e galulue ma se tasi e gaosia lenei taimi, nai lo le taliaina o le ala talosaga mai se vaega o alii eseese. Ina ua ou aumaia le manatu e Gawvi ia fiafia i ai, ma tatou tulei le tasi le isi e fai se mea ofoofogia. sa taua uma malaga ou faia i Atlanta ona sa matua faigata ona alu ese mai le aiga ma tiute ekalesia. Ae o iinei tatou i se tausaga mulimuli ane, ma e toetoe lava mai!

Ou te iloa o loo fenumiai ai pea nisi tagata e uiga i le mea e faamoemoeina mai ia te aʻu i le lumanai. E tele unknowns mo aʻu, ae o le a ou taʻu atu ia te oe le mea ou te iloa:

– Ou te manao pea e avea ma se faifeau.
– Ou te manao lava e fai musika.
– Ou te manao lava e malaga atu i anamua ma tautala.
– Ou te manao lava e tusi tusi.

Ma ou te taumafai e iloa ai le auala pe afai e mafai ona ou faia na mea uma i se auala e faamamaluina e le Atua, ao avea o loo faamaoni pea i loʻu aiga ma le ekalesia a le Atua.

o le a “tulai” loʻu CD mulimuli? E mafai ona, ae ou te faamoemoe o le. mo le taimi nei, Ou te manao e olioli i le taimi ma faasoa atu ia te outou uma mea ou te manatu o laʻu galuega sili ae. ua suia se tele talu 2012, ae tasi lava le mea e tumau pea le lava lea e tasi: o Iesu o le Alii, ma ou te manao e faamamalu ia te Ia ma loʻu musika.

    I’m so happy to hear Trip Lee’s new music. Can’t wait for the new album. Truly a talented guy

  2. Tonytali

    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, pese, 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.

    ma le faaaloalo,
    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, aoaoga, pese, and family in an awesome way. That’s why I’ll continue to support him in his endeavors, and as he mentioned “o Iesu o le Alii, and I want to honor Him…” ou te fai atu, 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. DavidQuinonestali

    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!!!

  5. Kevin Hallorantali

    Great to hear, malaga! Keep preaching and rapping the Word. Excited to see what the Lord has in store.

  6. MattShafertali

    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.

  7. Michael Jimeneztali

    Trip you’re an inspiration to all of us Christian Rappers. We support every and any decisions you make. Keep it

  8. VICTORKHIZtali

    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.

  9. atali

    malaga, 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. malaga, 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!

  13. RommelAlonzotali

    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

  14. Sarahtali

    Much respect for you, malaga 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.

  15. Ashleytali

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

  16. Brandontali

    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.

  17. ErickCorraltali

    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, malaga 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. Faamanuia le atua.

  18. CBtali

    malaga, 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 & lou aiga, 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

  20. AustinRobertstali

    malaga, 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. leai. 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. Faamanuia le atua.

  21. LIlliantali

    Took the words right out of my mouth. I’m proud of you, malaga, and excited for everything you’re doin. :) Tuu ai pea i luga!

  22. GabeTavianotali

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

  23. DrowningInGracetali

    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.
    Alofa tunoa ma le Filemu.

    malaga–

    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, faafetai. Thanks so much for bringing hope to the world in the name of Jesus. Love you!

  25. tamsyntali

    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. Faamanuia le atua! Tamsyn, Afelika i Saute

  26. JesiliaLeaupepetali

    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 ui o lea, 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).

    faamanuia outou e le Atua bro. 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.
