Lee’s last three albums debuted at #1 on the Billboard Gospel charts, and his most recent album, Rise, debuted at #2 on the Billboard Rap charts and #16 on the Billboard 200. His music has garnered a Stellar award win for Best Rap/Hip Hop Gospel album, as well as several Dove Award nominations, and his tracks Manolo and Lazarus have appeared on the hit Fox TV Series So You Think You Can Dance. Near the end of 2016, Trip Lee released his latest project and mixtape The Waiting Room. “This earth is a place where all of our longings just won’t come true,” Trip explains. “We’re always waiting for things to be made right.” Throughout the 10 songs he wrestles with joy and pain, life and death, and the realities of our current social and political climate. The example of the church, Trip argues, is needed now more than ever before. “We have to step up and meet people where they are. That’s how you create change.”
As an author, Trip Lee released two books, The Good Life and Rise, and as a pastor, he regularly preaches and teaches at Christian conferences and events. For his performing, writing and teaching, Trip Lee draws from his faith and uses it as a foundation to inspire others.
