Holy Hip Hop News: Trip Lee Releases “The Good Life”
Reach Records artist, Trip Lee, announced today that his fourth project will be droppin’ on April 10th, 2012. Check out what he had to say…
For the first half of 2011, I did no songs, no features, no shows, no nothing. I moved to Washington DC and took about 5 months off for a pastoral internship. Even though I wasn’t traveling the world and standing in front of a sea of people every night, it was one of the most fruitful seasons of my life. When the internship ended I started traveling again and slowly started working on new music. Around fall I kicked into full gear working on my fourth solo album. And after months of hard work, the album is pretty much done.
I can’t even express how excited I am to release it. I’m always looking to give people something I haven’t given them before. I don’t want to remake an album I’ve already made. I want to give you a new album, with new music, and new ways of celebrating the same old truth.
In 2006 on my first album, If They Only Knew, I wanted to tell people about a glorious God who I wanted them to know. In 2008, “20/20″ came out and I wanted to encourage folks to see the Lord with real vision. 2 years later, “Between Two Worlds” dropped and I wanted to make sense of what it means to live life in a fallen world while waiting for a Hero to save the day. And this year, beginning April 10th, I want to explore and redefine “The Good Life.” Though the world, the flesh, and the devil lie to us about what the good life is, we don’t have to be controlled by those lies. We don’t have to be robots. We can choose life. I want to challenge the lies we’ve been told, and present a new and more glorious picture. Join me on the this journey.
