Trip Lee Essentials

Trip Lee Essentials

Dallas rapper Trip Lee's music glints with the rattling trap beats and menace of Dirty South hip-hop, but his "trigger finger" flips Scripture pages ("I keep one in my car and I got two at home," he boasts cleverly on "Manolo", but he's talking Bibles) and his grind-all-night YOLO anthems—”Insomniac”—are about saving souls. He's a founding member of the 116 Clique, a quick-witted group of Christian artists (which includes Lecrae and Tedashii) with sterling flows and canny pop instincts, making praise music that could fit as comfortably on Hot 97 or BET as it does in church pews (“Man up Anthem”).
