Reach Records rapper Trip Lee appeared on social networking site ThisIs50.com which is owned by 50 Cent and discussed gospel music’s acceptance of hip hop and hip hop’s acceptance of Christians.
When asked by host Young Jack Thriller if people in the gospel music world bought his albums, Lee explained just where his genre of music fits in the whole of the industry.
“I think sometimes the gospel world assumes hip hop just embraces us, because we like them but they’re a little too hip hop, and I think hip hop assumes the gospel world embraces us, but really we’re like somewhere weird in the middle,” said Lee. “Nobody knows what to do with us.”
Lee also feels his fanbase is based off of people embracing the message in his music.
“Our fanbase, because the music to them is more than just music, because we’re trying to talk about life stuff and trying to make them think, it’s impacted their lives and so we have a stronger fanbase than most fanbases. Sometimes it’s smaller. It’s loyal! So that’s why when my album drops, even if I don’t have as many fans as some of these other artists, [the album] is going to hop to number one because our fans are loyal.”
