Trip Lee recently released his new book, which is causing people in the entertainment industry to sing the praises of the author, rapper and pastor.
Lee, the 27-year-old who was born William Lee Barefield III, recently released his book Rise: Get Up and Live in God’s Great Story as a way to empower young people to form a serious relationship with Jesus Christ in their lives. A number of Lee’s peers have spoken up about the recording artist’s second book.
Lecrae is also a Christian Grammy award-winning rapper and the co-founder of Reach Records to which Lee belongs. He spoke about the importance of people reading Lee’s latest book.
“Trip’s written a book that I think every young person needs to read. His passion for Jesus and this generation comes through loud and clear on every page,” Lecrae said, according to Lee’s Built To Brag blog. “I can’t wait to see the impact this message has on a generation that’s hungry for purpose.”
Kirk Franklin, another Grammy award-winning multi-platinum gospel musician, also offered some words about Lee’s book.
“Trip has written a book I wish I would’ve read when I was younger,” Franklin said on Lee’s BRAG website. “His passion, wisdom, and desire to challenge the younger generation is a testament to the work God’s doing through Trip and the work he can do through us all.”
Sam Acho, the Arizona Cardinals linebacker, said he could not put down Lee’s book once he began to read it.
“Rise is a phenomenal book that captures the heart of our culture. As soon as I picked it up I couldn’t put it down,” Acho said on Lee’s BRAG website. “Trip challenges you to be REAL, and shows you how to live your life as a young adult in the world today. Great read.”
