Bekleyin, Trip - Sen Emekli değil mi?

Birkaç ay önce ben yepyeni bir albüm duyurarak herkesi şaşırttı, “artış.” Sen benim etiket önce bu konuda sessiz tutmak için ne kadar zor anlamıyorum ve ben halka açıldı. Albüm bir yılı aşkın süredir çalışmalarında olmuştu, ve ben herkese anlatmak için sabırsızlanıyordu - özellikle yeni bir şey bırakarak soran tuttu olanlar.

cevabı şimdiye kadar derinden cesaret verici olmuştur. Ben son iki yıldır oldukça sessiz oldum bile insanlar beni desteklemeye devam ettiğini şaşırıyorum. Sevginiz ve ritmi sadece benim arttı.

Erken emeklilik

Ben tarafından sürpriz değildi cevaplardan biri bu oldu: "Bekleyin, Ben emekli düşündüm?"Bu bir gölge gibi beni etrafında takip soru. Ben bunu ele ettik görüşmeler, tweet'ler, ve internet günlüğü girdileri, ama bazı hala belirsiz olduğunu biliyorum. Bana düz rekor denemek için devam edelim: Ben emekli asla.

İçinde 2012, Ben olacağını açıkladı "müzik uzak adım." Evet, O emeklilik-ish geldiğini biliyorum, ama amaçsız o kelimeyi kullanmak vermedi. Ben değildi çünkü ben bilerek belirsiz tuttu 100% o nasıl olacağını emin.

"The Good Life" benim son albüm oldu ben mümkün olduğunu biliyordum, ama emin değildim. İşte ben biliyor muydunuz ne: büyük ölçüde ben müzik ile ilgili nasıl değiştirecek çok büyük bir öncelik kayması olacağını. Ben kadar benim diğer emcees ile yolda olmaz. Ben yeni müzik bir demet dışarı krank mümkün olmaz. Ben tam zamanlı bir rapçi olmaz. Ben papaz Tanrı'nın kilise yardım istediğini biliyordu.

O zamandan beri, Ben Washington D.C benim kilisede hizmet veren oldum. Çeşitli pastoral rollerde. Ben yönetici işi yaptık, vaaz ve öğretim, gençlik bakanlığı, evlilik danışmanlığı, vb. Çünkü kilise sorumlulukları bir şarkının tek bir çubuk herhangi gösterileri yapıyor ya da yazmadan ay gitti. Hatta dışarı oturdu 2013 utanmaz Tur. Ve yeni müzik oluşturmak cevapsız rağmen, Ben Yaptıklarımdan seviyorum. Sağlık sorunları zaman zaman zor yaptık, ama ailem ve benim için ödüllendirici bir sezon oldu.

Yeni albüm

tam zamanlı pastoral bakanlık ilk yıl sonra, Ben yavaş yavaş yeni bir rekor üzerinde çalışmaya başlamaya karar. Benim yaratıcı suları kadar şişe olmuştu, ve ben gitmek için hazır olduğunu. Ama bunun yerine non-stop yazma ve kayıt beş ya da altı aylık burst, Müzik benim tam zamanlı bir iş değildi çünkü bu albüm yavaş ve istikrarlı oldu. Yavaş yavaş her şarkı zanaat çünkü o amele dışarı büyük, ve mümkün olduğunca mükemmellik o kadar yakın olsun.

Ben bir yapımcı bu kez ile çalışmaya karar verdik, yerine farklı çocuklar bir demet iz gönderimler kabul. Ben Gawvi fikri getirdiğinde onu sevdi, ve birbirimizi inanılmaz bir şey yapmak için itti. aile ve kilise vergilerinden kurtulmak için çok zor oldu çünkü Atlanta'ya yapılan her gezi çok önemliydi. Ama burada bir yıl sonra bitti, ve neredeyse dışarı!

Ben bazı insanlar hala gelecekte benden ne hakkında karıştı biliyorum. Benim için çok bilinmeyenli vardır, Biliyorum ne ama sana söyleyeceğim:

– Hala bir papaz olmak istiyorum.
– Ben hala müzik yapmak istiyorum.
– Ben hala rap ve konuşmak seyahat etmek istiyorum.
– Hala kitap yazmak istiyorum.

Ve ben Tanrı'yı ​​onurlandıran bir şekilde tüm bu şeyler yapmak nasıl ya da olmadığını öğrenmek için çalışıyorum, hala ailem ve Allah'ın kiliseye sadık olurken.

İrade “artış” benim son albüm olacak? Olabilir, ama ben umut. Şimdilik, Ben anın tadını çıkarın ve benim en iyi çalışma henüz olduğunu düşünüyorum hepinizle paylaşmak istiyorum. Bir çok beri değişti 2012, ama bir şey aynı kalır: İsa lord, ve benim müzik ile O'nu onurlandırmak istiyorum.

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

    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, müzik, 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.

    hürmetle,
    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, öğretim, müzik, and family in an awesome way. That’s why I’ll continue to support him in his endeavors, and as he mentioned “İsa lord, and I want to honor Him…” Diyorum, 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.

    gezi, 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. gezi, 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. mübarek olun!

    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

    Much respect for you, Yolculuk 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. Sen, 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.

  17. ErickCorralcevap

    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, Yolculuk 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. Tanrı kutsasın.

  18. CBcevap

    gezi, 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

    gezi, 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. Yok hayır. 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. Tanrı kutsasın.

    Took the words right out of my mouth. I’m proud of you, gezi, and excited for everything you’re doin. :) Aynen böyle devam!

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

  23. DrowningInGracecevap

    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.

    gezi–

    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. Tanrı kutsasın! Tamsyn, Güney Afrika

    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. (Bu arada, 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).

    God bless you 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.
