By the time Trip Lee released his 4th studio album, The Good Life, the long-time Reach Records favorite was at a crossroads. He was battling a serious health condition and preparing himself for pastoral ministry. When he announced he would be taking a “break from music” on a short behind-the-scenes video for TGL, everyone seemed to be caught off guard.

After a two year hiatus Dae-Lee is back at it and has released his newest installment, 'The Warm Up.'
'The Warm Up' is a very appropriate title for an artist who has been away from his art for a spell, but that's not the only story behind the title. It's also about the growth that took place during his time away from music to build his relationship with the woman who is now his wife.

Check out part 2 of the “Between Two Worlds” Reflections video. Trip Lee gives us another look into his journal where he describes the universal love and desire for a superhero and shares more on his own personal life struggles.
There are many parallels that can be drawn between the Christian existence and other areas of life. Analogies such as the faith as a battlefield and the Christian worker as a farmer are familiar to all in Christendom. With 'Student of Life' Memphis resident Shane Kidd introduces a new parallel to the mix. The Believer is the Student, Christ is the Teacher, and Life is the Classroom. Throughout the album this metaphor is fleshed out through witty lines and thoughtful songs. Although this is a novel concept at places it is betrayed by average music that fails to live up to its lofty ambition.
Last year in an interview with Wonder Brown, I was actually told about this album that Wonder was doing with Sean Little, and then due to my lack of memory I forgot it even existed. When I listened to the single on the album, I got excited about it and rightfully so. Listening to 'A Love Aphiliated' is an amazing experience in hip-hop and music in general. Now for those who are out of the loop, Sean Little released his album 'Scott Free' in 2008 and Wonder Brown is part of the Scribbling Idiots and has recently released an EP called 'The Gallows'. Now there's one more piece missing to this duo; a producer. This is where Vintage comes in. Vintage is most known for his beats on Theory Hazit's 'Lord Fire' project. Vintage teams up with Wonder and Sean Little to produce all the beats on this project also, making the album a must listen.
