Trip Lee, was born and raised in Dallas, USA. As a young boy, Lee had dreams of being a professional athlete or famous rapper, and he began to hone his lyrical skills at the age of 12. "I rapped about random stuff...how hot I was, how many girls I could pull," Trip says. But upon giving his life to Christ, at age 14, his focus changed from fortune, fame, and women to serving and ministering the Gospel. Lee slowly recognized that all of his life should be centered around Christ. "One day, I just decided, I'm only doing Christian hip hop. Rappers like Ambassador and Da Truth helped provide a model for how I would begin to do that," he says. He also had an immense desire to learn and teach the Word of God. In 2004, Lee met Lecrae at a concert; months later, after talking and building with each other, Lecrae began to disciple him. Lee signed with Reach Records, and his debut album, If They Only Knew, was released a few days after his high school graduation. His first full-length album introduced hip-hop fans to his distinct southern sound, unique delivery and gospel-saturated lyrics. 2011 brings new challenges and Trip's latest offering 'The Good Life' is sure to get young people to focus on the Gospel of Christ.

The gameplay modes available are fun initially, but I never feel like I?m achieving anything and nor am I addicted enough to...
Advantages: Pink fans will like it! Disadvantages: I don't like it!
...The Truth About Love is the sixth album from American singer Pink. The album was released in the United Kingdom in September 2012 and so it is very recent. The length of the album is: 51 minutes and 23 seconds. The album is currently available from Amazon for a price of £7.49 which I think is great value for money considering that the album is very recent.

Advantages: A few bangers Disadvantages: A few tracks are a little weaker than the rest
...Nas? controversial ?Hip Hop Is Dead? release came out in 2006, and came at a time when he declared the ?death? of the genre, as he considered it?s true origins to have been diluted to a point beyond recognition when compared to its form in the seventies and eighties. It was the New Yorker?s eight album to that point, and saw him make another big statement to change the way all music of that time...
