An album can teach you a lot. In many ways, it's the ultimate platform to spread a heartfelt message, relay invaluable lessons, and celebrate life in a palatable, potent form. That's precisely what Trip Lee does on his fourth full-length album, Rise.
In order to convey his message, Trip took a different approach to recording this time around. Instead of collaborating with multiple producers, he worked solely with longtime producer Gawvi for the entire album at his Atlanta studio. Sonically, Rise's first single "Shweet" displays the immense talent of both Gawvi and Trip Lee. With its simmering production, the track nods to that classic down south Houston bounce with New York-style storytelling. Trip's verses remain as vivid as they are vital. Meanwhile, "Sweet Victory" builds from a minimal verse into a sweeping hook that's instantly invigorating as Trip's infectious flow takes hold. "Manolo" sees him once again team up with Reach Records' own main man and close friend Lecrae. Together, the two of them flip another hip-hop paradigm cleverly between tightly woven rhyme fireworks.
