In the four short years since his debut album 'If They Only Knew', Trip Lee has became one of he most recognizable artists in Christian Hip Hop. His
love of down south beats paired along with his mid west flow, and 116 Clique membership, have made Trip Lee universally accepted. With his
last album '20/20', Trip displayed insight on life that betrayed his young age. On his third album 'Between Two Worlds' Trip continues to
provide unique insight on the world and it's ills. The album is focused on the believer living in this old fallen world while awaiting
the glorious new world that Christ will inaugurate at His return.
The album opens up with "Real Life Music" where Trip Lee contrasts his brand of Hip Hop from what is usually played on the radio. Over a
sample driven melody with sharp drums he riddles off lines such as "Too many spit that fake rap most just can't relate to / they don't
got no Maybach they don't get to make rules / They ain't tryna make stacks they just tryna make do". This is a great intro and prepares
audiences for a very accessible album. Trip more than ever seems to exert himself in communicating gospel truth in terms the average
listener can easily grasp. Much of the album focuses on conveying the struggles that come along with living in a fallen world. The
issues mentioned are not only things that Christians can identify with but many unsaved people may identify with even more.
