Released this week is 116 Clique member and Reach Records rap artist Trip Lee's brand new album "Rise." This Christian rap album follows 2012's The Good Life with his finest effort to date, showcasing his signature lyrical depth over a bed of funky, hard, and poignant tracks. Coinciding with his book of the same title, Rise includes "Manolo" (ft. Lecrae), "Lazarus" (ft. Thi'sl), "Lights On," and more.
"Rise" is currently No. 1 on the top albums list on iTunes. In addition to this, he also released a music video for the song "Shweet."
"Rise has a lot of different meanings," Trip said to Vibe about the album, "It's a call-to-action to rise from the dead and actually live. We're born spiritually dead, and I'm calling for everyone to become spiritually alive. Secondly, don't wait until later to live the way you were created. God created you to honor Him, find joy, and serve others. Don't sleep on that. Lastly, rise above the low expectations people have."
