3. Trip Lee. I used to lead a Bible study in a juvenile detention center. The teens in that facility loved Trip Lee’s first album, If They Only Knew. I probably purchased that album at least 10 times for that reason. When I think about emcees that combine skill, theology, and a commitment to excellence, Trip Lee is certainly high on this list. I would love to go through my neighborhood handing out free music by another Reach Records artist. The same could be said for Tedashii.
