Rapper and author Trip Lee, born William Lee Barefield III, recently joined Faithfully Magazine for a live discussion about his career, new projects, and more.

Lee’s debut album, “If They Only Knew,” was released in 2005, and his subsequent albums have hit the Billboard Top 200 and earned a Stellar Award and nominations for the GMA Dove Awards.

In 2012, the married father of three stepped away from music to pursue training as a pastor. Since then, he has released two albums, “Rise” and “The Waiting Room.” His newly released single and music video, “You Got It,” is Lee’s first new music since 2016. He is also the author of two books, The Good Life and Rise: Get Up and Live in God’s Great Story.

In his recent discussion with Faithfully Magazine, Lee touched on several topics, including his new project, how he thinks Christians should handle doubt, where he finds inspiration, and more. This video was recorded live and has been edited for clarity.

Editor’s note: This article will be updated with a transcript at a future date.
