Cash Or Christ – Trip Lee, ft. Lecrae

[Chorus:]
Forget about the cash, Forget about the clothes
Forget about the stash, Forget about the dough
Forget about the cars, Forget about the rims
Forget about dem stars, Forget about the benz
Forget about the big crib, tryna get rich,
The big six-fo, plenty dough and tryna sip chrys
Forget the cash and chains, that stuff will pass away
And you can’t take it with you to yer after days

[Trip Lee:]
Most’ concerned with the cheddar flow, but dawg I gotta let em know
A lot of reasons we should be seeking Jesus instead of dough
Instead of mo material things, the jewelry n fame
I speak of the Kang, but most ain’t feeling me main
They would rather let they money stack, tryna get a hundred stack
They pockets fat, but they not ready when Christ is coming back
If they only knew the real truth about the comin wrath
They would probably race to Him faster than a runnin’ back
I know the things the cheddar buys, will attract and catch the eyes
Instead of ice, it’d be nice, if we would invest in life
Instead of all that flashy stuff, tryna get our status up
His wrath is just, so if we don’t seek Him dawg then we outa luck
What good is it to gain the world and in’da end lose ya soul?
It’s foolish bro, there’s a lovin savior you can truly know
I know you seeking satisfaction, you can’t find it though
Tryna dash for the cash and designer clothes

[Chorus]

[Lecrae:]
Got money, got whips, got ice
Still broke homeboy! No Christ
Got a debt to pay, some real heavy wages
And the payment for sin is pretty outrageous
I seen him park the car, suicide do’s
Without Christ he walking through a suicide do’
The dollar bill say in God we trust
It’s funny cause money is the only God we trust
And she say that she a Christian, but I can’t tell
She ain’t depending on God, she depend on man
1 stack, 2 stack, 3 stack, fo
They spent they whole life stacking up dough
And when they die not a dimes gone go
Now they physically rich, but they spiritually po’
And they probably never heard of 1 Corinthians chapter fo’
‘Cause they said they can’t imagine God’s people being po’ (whoa)

[Chorus]

[Trip Lee:]
You might want you some change, yeah you might want a crib
But tell me where the Bible say that Jesus want us rich?
It says we should be content if we got food and clothin
That’s the truth and bro, we tripping really being foolish homie
We shouldn’t put no value on fallin screens and stylish chrome
Even if you saved that stuff can’t go with you when you back at home
So allow me to encourage you, if you agree the Word is true
You can only serve one Master, some of us is serving two
‘Can’t serve God and cash, can’t love the world and Christ
Put money out ya mind, focus on eternal life
‘Can’t speak from experience, I ain’t seen it but I’m betting
Treasures of this world ain’t nothing next to the ones that’s up in Heaven
Feel free to store em up, since we found the Lord is just
Amazing let us praise Him main and try to give Him more of us
Let us live our life with Him, spend our days and nights with Him
Ignore the trash the world has to offer and delight in Him

[Chorus]

 

Gotta Grow – Trip Lee

T-Stone, what it do, man, yeah
Somebody wave yer hands like dis (like dis)
E’erbody wave yer hands like dis (like dis)
Yeah, y’all can dance to this (yeah)
Yeah, y’all can dance to this
Less git it, less git it man (less git it man)
Less git it, less git it man (yeah)

[Verse 1:]
I wasn’t never the type that’s tryna kill folks
Nothing too bad maybe dabbled in a lil smoke
A lil lust, but wasn’t never seen as a bad dude
Was livin for myself dreamed of wealth and makin cash move
Was told of a savior who raised named Jesus
That paid full of grace and I did believe it
They told me He would hold me and I was blessed with Christ
I’m like, “I get to go to Heaven? Man I’m set for life.”
But after that, I was just ya average Sunday Christian
Up in church with my bible, back Monday sinning
Up in the school yard trying hard to blend in
Was acting dead as a carcass, far from livin
I was all up in the world, I was just like the rest of them
Called myself a Christian, but would sin with the best of them
I wouldn’t share my faith or read my Word it’s crazy
I was a immature believer, a spiritual baby

[Chorus: x2]
We gotta grow, we can’t stay in the same place
We gotta grow, we gotta be seeking His face
We gotta grow, so if you saved and you’ve been pardoned
We gotta grow, you ain’t done you just getting started

[Verse 2:]
I was my own guide, would never dive in His truth
But didn’t realize that I was set aside for His use
So I’d just live for what I thought was my best interest
Around nonbelievers you couldn’t tell the difference
Wan’t a thug, nah I ain’t got no horror story
But was livin for myself not the Lord and His glory
My confession: I didn’t seek my Dad’s perfection
Was goin down the wrong road like I had bad directions
Until He showed my not imitating the Christ
And livin fo me I was truly wasting my life
And that Christ died so I could have relationship
But by my actions I refused to take this gift
Until He made a switch and now I want some mo of Him daily
By His grace I’m growing and have matured from a baby
I’m so grateful that I’ve been torn from sin
And day by day He’s makin me more like Him

[Chorus]

[Verse 3:]
So for my believers, I just wanna encourage y’all
To draw closer to the Lord I know you heard His call
Even if you ain’t smokin an shootin at domes
If you don’t do it all fo His glory, you doin it wrong
Heaven ain’t the only reason we got saved
If we don’t get to know Jesus then we got played
Plus we gotta change, He said He’d change us all
And the faith without fruit, that ain’t faith at all (why)
Sanctification, check Romans 6
We ‘posed to switch, die to sin and grow in holiness
All my brothers and sister I know this walk is tough
But even if you young just getting saved is not enough
We gotta talk to Him, read who the Lord in the skies is
The reason we breathe is to enjoy and glorify Him
I’m grateful the Father is changing ya boy
And getting closer to Him is an unexplainable joy

 

Who You Rollin’ Wit -Trip lee, (feat. Flame & Json)

Who you rollin’ with (Who you rollin’ with, who you rollin’ with)

Are they livin’ unashamed of His name?
Or are they trippin’ fakin’ this thang?
Are they livin’ fo da kang a da kangs?
Yeah, Yeah

[Flame:]
My cats don’t chase fame
My cats don’t smoke weed
My cats don’t chase chain
No, we got what we need
My cats don’t chase chicks
My cats don’t sip on
My cats don’t stack bricks
Man, we focused on the Lord
My cats got each other
We call it brotherly love
And yeah we draped out and covered in Jesus’ blood
My homies they straight pray
My homies they straight fast
My homies are so serious
An’ they ain’t chasin’ cash
My sisters are so serious
And they ain’t chasin’ men
My sisters guardin their hearts
And strayin away from sin
My sisters they dress modest
Ain’t showin off all their skin
My sisters they run a race in preparation to win
My squad stay in this faith
Cause man we know we can slip
That’s why we stay dependent and remain off in His grip
My squadron never forget that we were scum of da earth (earth)
Livin dead in our sin He came in and gave us birth
That’s serious

[Chorus]

[Json:]
When I’m with my squad it might be hard to spot me
Cause we all look like a Jesus
Carbon copy
We church boys (yeah)
This is the charge I’m hoping you see the desperate need
Believers run together like the legs on a centipede (oh)
Oh yes indeed we fall but we get up Lifted up
By the body that’s called to pick us up
So we must be surrounded by accountability partners. Without none,
Christian livings intentionally harder
Hope you’re listening partner
Cause the fact of the matter is what happens here just hurts your walk
Like feet calluses look hard and there’s something you should peep
You will see that we are the very company we keep, even me
(Who you rollin with)
Is it cat’s that’s complacent or
Dudes that continue to grow in wisdom and patience
(Who you rollin with)
Because this part here is crucial
Show our heart and hopes maybe the feeling is mutual

[Chorus]

[Trip Lee:]
Look man we gotta roll with cats that’s out shootin fo da same thang
Like target practice
God know as you look around it’s hard in fact it’s
Real discouraging instead of saints they all look backwards
But we gotta find some dudes (dudes)
Be up in the pews
Pray away from booze
Like to spread good news
That ain’t chasin after chicks
That ain’t livin fo dem selvs
Ain’t blazin up the spliffs
That ain’t out der tryin to sell (yeah)
So take a look at the dudes in your squad
How they tryna be like Christ or Diddy, Ludacris, and Nas, yeah
And to my sisters, are the girls up in ya crew (crew)
Dancin like Beyoncé or followin His rules
Where we need accountability fo times when we gon fall (fall)
So when we start slippin we got folks that we can call (call)
They can help us get back (back)
Back to servin Christ (Christ)
We gotta roll with cats (cats)
That’s after eternal life
Who you rollin with?

 

Fanatic- Lecrae

[Chorus:]
I’m a F-A-N-A-T-I-C,Fanatic
I rep Christ till I D-I-E,Fanatic
I’m not extreme,I’m redeemed with faith
to serve a god whose extremely great
I’m a Fanatic

[Verse 1:]
The world’s trying to tidy up,exfoliate they skin
but only Christ can come and exfoliate they sin
And they fate look grim,If they don’t take him
As the high priesthe is to mediate they sin
The world’s got too many Gods,man we choose the one
From Hebrews,he rules,he bruised his son
He moves the son
So if we prayin and our schools call us fools
Cuz our God’s too true to shun
Channels two in one
Man it looks insane
T.v.make a lot Christians seem dramatically strange
Though we may be looked upon as one and same
We will not turn in shame, we proclaim the name
Christ Jesus, believe us, you ain’t gotta recieve us
but we gon’ follow our God wherever the bible lead us
And you can call us dramatic, fanatic, emphatic
But hate while you at it, take a look at our mathematics

[Chorus]

[Verse 2:]
What can I do to make it simple, make it plain
Christ came, emptied himself and let out sin hang him
You couldn’t blame him for any sin
While they singing many men
The crucifixion was pretty grim
But when we state the fact that God resurrects
We get funny looks from a world that doesn’t get
We are not David Koresh or Krishna
Or the people on TV who glorifying their bishop
From Edwards to Piper, MacAurther to Spurgeon
From Dallas to France, From Cali to Berlin
As Christians all over who getting the word in
We ain’t crazy we just understand the truth and we burdened
The world sees us as evangelical Christians
As narrow-minded fanatics with a mythical mission
Labeled extremists for sharing out faith
But thats cool, we can carry the weight of persecution
Cuz earth is losing
And if we yelling the truth
We honored to be the people that our God is using
So keep it moving
Cuz if we yelling the truth
We honored to be the people that our God is using

[Chorus]

[Verse 3:]
They thought Jesus was out of his mind
they laughed and mocked him
Called him a cult leader and they tried to stop him
Pharisees said Christ got his power from Satan
Hatin’, on the very one that came to save ’em
Even after he rose, man the world ain’t changed
They still rejecting the name, still look at us strange
Still tell us without shame that our faith’s insane
and, “it don’t take all that to be a Christian man”
And its hard when you tryin to reach your family and stuff
They say man, “you too spiritual, you doing to much”
So we show them the love of Christ and live in the light
So they can glorify our God when they look at our life
And we win for sharing the truth and hearts get changed
We win if we’re rejected because of his name
We win if seeds get planted and watered and grow
But even if we lost, we still be Fanatical though

[Chorus]

Background- Lecrae ft C-lite

[Chorus:]
I could play the background
I could play the background
Cause I know sometimes I get in the way
So won’t You take the lead, lead, lead?
So won’t You take the lead, lead, lead?
And I could play the background, background
And you could take the lead

[Verse 1:]
It’s evident you run the show, so let me back down
You take the leading role, and I’ll play the background
I know I miss my cues, know I forget my lines
I’m sticking to your script, and I’m reading all your signs
I don’t need my name in lights, I don’t need a starring role
Why gain the whole wide world, If I’m just going lose my soul
And my ways ain’t pure if I don’t live according to Your Word
I can’t endure this life without Your wisdom being heard
So word, to every dancer for a pop star
‘Cause we all play the background, but mine’s a rockstar
Yeah, so if you need me I’ll be stage right
Praying the whole world will start embracing stage fright
So let me fall back, stop giving my suggestions
‘Cause when I follow my obsessions, I end up confessing
That I’m not that impressive, matter of fact
I’m who I are, a trail of stardust leading to the superstar

[Chorus:]
I could play the background
I could play the background
Cause I know sometimes I get in the way
So won’t You take the lead, lead, lead?
So won’t You take the lead, lead, lead?
And I could play the background, background
And you could take the lead

[Verse 2:]
I had a dream that I was captain of my soul
I was master of my fate, lost control, and then I sank
So I don’t want to take the lead, ’cause I’m prone to make mistakes
All these folks who follow me, gon’ end up in the wrong place
So let me just shadow you, let me trace your lines
Matter of fact, just take my pen, here, you create my rhymes
‘Cause if I do this by myself, I’m scared that I’ll succeed
And no longer trust in you, ’cause I only trust in me
And see, that’s how you end up headed to destruction
Paving a road to nowhere, pour your life out for nothing
You pulled my card, I’m bluffing, You know what’s in my hand
Me, I just roll and trust you, You cause the dice to land
I’m in control of nothing, follow you at any cost
Some call it sovereign will, all I know is you the boss
Man, I’m so at ease, I’m so content
I’ll play the background, like it’s an instrument

[Chorus:]
I could play the background
I could play the background
Cause I know sometimes I get in the way
So won’t You take the lead, lead, lead?
So won’t You take the lead, lead, lead?
And I could play the background, background
And you could take the lead

[Bridge:]
I know I’m safest when I’m in Your will, and trust Your Word
I know I’m dangerous when I trust myself, my vision blurred
And I ain’t got no time to play life’s foolish games
Got plenty aims, but do they really Glorify Your name
And it’s a shame, the way I want to do these things for You, yeah
Don’t even cling to you, take time to sit and glean from You
It seems You were patient in my ignorance
If ignorance is bliss, it’s ’cause she never heard of this

[Chorus:]
I could play the background
I could play the background
Cause I know sometimes I get in the way
So won’t You take the lead, lead, lead?
So won’t You take the lead, lead, lead?
And I could play the background, background
And you could take the lead

[Chorus:]
I could play the background
I could play the background
Cause I know sometimes I get in the way
So won’t You take the lead, lead, lead?
So won’t You take the lead, lead, lead?
And I could play the background, background
And you could take the lead.

Boasting- Lecrae ft Anthony Evans

[Chorus:]
If this life has anything to gain at all
I’ll count it loss if I can’t hear you, feel you, ’cause I need you.
Can’t walk this earth alone.
I recognize I’m not my own, so before I fall
I need to hear you, feel you, as I live to make my boast in you alone.

[Verse 1:]
With every breath I take, with every heart beat,
Sunrise and the moon lights in the dark street.
Every glance, every dance, every note of a song.
It’s all a gift undeserved that I shouldn’t have known.
Every day that I lie, every moment I covet
I’m deserving to die, I’m just earning your judgment.
I, without the cross there’s only condemnation.
If Jesus wasn’t executed there’s no celebration.
So in times that are good, in times that are bad
For any times that I’ve had it all I will be glad.
And I will boast in the cross. I’ll boast in my pains.
I will boast in the sunshine, boast in his reign.
What’s my life if it’s not praising you?
Another dollar in my bank account of vain pursuit.
I do not count my life as any value or precious at all.
Let me finish my race, let me answer my call.

[Chorus]

[Verse 2:]
Tomorrow’s never promised, but it is we swear.
Think we holding our own, just a fist full of air.
God has never been obligated to give us life.
If we fought for our rights, we’d be in hell tonight.
Mere sinners owed nothing but a fierce hand.
We never loved him, we pushed away his pierced hands.
I rejected his love, grace, kindness, and mercy.
Dying of thirst, yet, willing to die thirsty.
Eternally worthy, how could I live for less?
Patiently you turned my heart away from selfishness.
I volunteer for your sanctifying surgery.
I know the Spirit’s purging me of everything that’s hurting me.
Remove the veil from my darkened eyes.
So now every morning I open your word and see the Son rise.
I hope in nothin, boast in nothin, only in your suffering.
I live to show your glory, dying to tell your story.

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
Glory was solely meant for you.
Doing what no one else could do.
With All I have to give, (With all I have to Give)
I’ll use my life, I’ll use my lips. (My Lips Yeaaah)
I’ll only glory in your Word. What gift to me I don’t deserve.
I’ll live in such a way that it reflects to you, my Praise.

[Chorus: with Descant]
