BILLBOARD CHART TOPPING HIP HOP ARTIST TRIP LEE RELEASES THE GOOD LIFE NATIONWIDE APRIL 10, 2012 THROUGH REACH RECORDS

Fourth project redefines “The Good Life” and challenges listeners to no longer live in the light of lies but embark on a new and more glorious journey

LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Reach Records’ hip-hop artist Trip Lee is gearing up for the release of his latest album, The Good Life. Slated to release nationwide on April 10, 2012 through Reach Records, the 4th project for Trip celebrates the truth in real life through its unique style and lyrical content.

A musical exploration to redefine "The Good Life,” Trip challenges listeners to no longer live in light of lies that says the good life is all about the money, the cars, and the clothes.

“The good life is not climbing to the top of the corporate ladder, the good life is not a life free from any responsibility,” says Trip. “The good life is living in sync with God and embracing all that He has to offer us in Christ.”

Teaming up with label mates Lecrae, KB and Andy Mineo on production and musical fronts, The Good Life celebrates the truth and features new powerful songs like Trip’s first smash single, “Robot” that unveils the world, the flesh, and the devil’s lies by letting listeners know that they don't have to be controlled by those lies.

“We don't have to be robots,” says Trip. “We can choose life. I want to challenge the lies we've been told, and present a new and more glorious picture.”

Trip’s debut album, If They Only Knew, hit stores nationwide a few days after his high school graduation. That same year, he was also featured on the Dove Award-nominated, timeless classic “Jesus Muzik” with label mate Lecrae. Trip’s sophomore album, 20/20, was released in 2008 and garnered much success: breaking into the Billboard Top 200, reaching #11 on the Billboard Christian albums chart and landing at #4 on the Gospel chart. With his third studio album, Between Two Worlds, Trip offered a collection of reflections on life in a fallen world. Those reflections resonated with listeners as B2W debuted at #1 on the Christian and Gospel Billboard charts, #5 on the Hip Hop/Rap iTunes chart and #9 on the Top Albums iTunes chart. The album also received two Dove nominations and a Stellar Award for Best Gospel Rap/Hip Hop Album of the Year.

Since his first album release, Trip has traveled the world performing for thousands of listeners. In conjunction with The Good Life, he is gearing up for the nationwide 4Thirty1 Conference tour (http://www.premierproductions.com/tour/4thirty1-conference) and the Amazing Grace Tour alongside InPop singer/songwriter Jimmy Needham.

Trip will also be embarking on a nationwide album promotional tour that will be kicking off in conjunction with the April 10 release as well as a featured artist at various 2012 festivals including Spirit West Coast, Atlanta Fest and Rock The Lakes, among others
