From Reach:

“Respect My Team” marks the first time the three have recorded together since “Nothing I Can’t Do,” released on Tedashii’s 2014 album, Below Paradise. “I’m super excited to record new music with Trip Lee and Lecrae. We’ve been friends and label mates for nearly two decades; they’re some of my favorite artists. So, to create new music together and then perform those songs on tour is super exciting!”

The three icons go deep undercover and into character for the “Respect My Team,” faux action music video that casts Tedashii, Lecrae, and Trip Lee, as Blaxploitation era detectives taking down villains. “Some of my favorite films growing up were Kung-Fu flicks,” shares Tedashii. “When I was a kid, I watched Kung-Fu theater every Saturday! I watched everything from Bruce Lee to The Heroic Trio and was a superfan of Jim Kelly, and Chuck Norris. I was such a huge fan of karate flicks that I started taking martial arts as a kid, so many of the moves you see me doing in the video come from my childhood. I still watch Kung Fu flicks to this day!”

While the music video is comedic, the heartfelt lyrics to the “Respect My Team” speak to the brotherhood between Tedashii, Lecrae, and Trip Lee that launched the 116 Movement and the Romans 1:16 verse which is at the core of Reach Records’ mantra and mission. The music video for ‘Respect My Team’ and the lyrics of the song, ‘My team got my back, they behind me,’ bring feelings of nostalgia,” and for Tedashii, it is the reminder to all that “we ain’t done yet!”
