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]

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.

Don’t waste your life- Lecrae ft. Cam, Dwayne Tryumf

[Hook — Cam:]
Don’t wanna waste my life

[Verse 1 — LeCrae:]
I know a lot of people out there scared they’re gone die
A couple of them thinking they’ll be livin’ in the sky
But while I’m here livin’ man I gotta ask why, what am here fo’ I gotta figure out
Waste my life
No I gotta make it count
If Christ is real then what am I gonna do about
Everything in Luke 12: 15 down to 21
You’ve really gotta go and check it out
Paul said if Christ ain’t resurrected we’ve wasted our lives
Well that implies that our life’s built around Jesus being alive
Everyday I’m living tryin’ to show the world why
Christ is more than everything you’ll ever try
Better than pretty women and sinning and living to get a minute of any women and men that you admire
It ain’t no lie

We’re created for Him
Outta the dust he made us for Him
Elects us and he saves us for Him
Jesus comes and he raises for Him
Magnify the Father why bother with something lesser
He made us so we could bless Him
To the world we confess Him
Resurrects Him
So I know I got life
Matter fact better man I know I got Christ
If you don’t see His ways in my days and nights
You can hit my brakes you can stop my life
Then I lost my rights
I lost my life
Forget the money cars and toss that ice
The cost is Christ
And they could never offer me anything on the planet that would cost that price.

[Verse 2 — Dwayne Tryumph:]
Armed and dangerous
So the devil just can’t hang with us
Christian youth them will stand with us
Living and driven
Given a vision
Fulfilling the commission he handed us
London to Los Angeles
The rap evangelist
My daddy wouldn’t abandon us
I gotta backpack full of tracts and I keep it on the Johnny mac
So are you ready to jam with us
So let’s go, give me the word an let’s go
Persecution let’s go
Tribulation let’s go
Across the nation let’s go
Procrastination let’s go
Hung on the cross in the cold
Died for the young and the old
Can’t say you never know
Heaven knows how many souls are going to hell or to heaven so we gotta go in to get them

[Verse 3 — LeCrae:]
Suffer?
Yeah, do it for Christ!
You’re trying to figure what to do with your life
If you make a lot of money hope you’re doing it right
Because the money is God’s you better steward it right
And stay focused
You ain’t got no ride
Your life ain’t wrapped up in what you drive
The clothes you wear, the job you work
The color your skin naw you’re a Christian first
People get to living for a job
Make a little money start living for a car
Get ’em a wife a house kids and a dog
Then they retire they’re living high on the hog
But guess what they didn’t ever really live at all
To live is Christ and that’s Paul I recall
To die is gain so for Christ we give it all
He’s the treasure you’ll never find in a mall
Your money your singleness marriage talent your time
They were loaned to you to show the world that Christ is Divine
That’s why it’s Christ in my rhymes
That’s why it’s Christ all the time
See my whole world is built around Him He’s the life in my lines
I refuse to waste my life
He’s too true to chase that ice
Here’s my gifts and time
‘Cause I’m constantly trying to be used to praise the Christ
If he’s truly raised to life
Then this news should change your life
And by his grace you can put your faith in place that rules your days and nights.

CrossOver- Lecrae

[Talking:]
Yeah, they gon’ hate this one
They gon’ hate us cause we love Him so much
But it’s finna go down dawg
Yeah we gon’ represent Him tonight

[Verse One]
You can find me in a church
Focused and alert
No suit and tie, jeans and a t-shirt
I’m into praising God because he made us out of dirt
And plus he gave His life for this world’s evil works
So flirt with that
Most of y’all can’t jerk with that
Cause it ain’t no benefits and no perks with that
Still gotta’ live your life on this earth with that
But we live eternally and I can work with that
Holla, yeah I cheated, yeah I lust within
But guess what that’s why I trust in Him
See you thinkin’ that you ain’t that bad
You just lying to yourself playboy you better check your health
While you’re all about the cash and ice
Hope you ready for change you just broke the first commandment twice
And I know that you done stole before
If it wasn’t a gun it was some gum from the grocery store
It’s all sin to God
Man look into God
You guilty, you ain’t even a friend to God
Sin gotta’ high price it’ll cost your life
But God fit that bill on the cross with Christ

[Chorus]
The crossover from death to life
What’s the hold up accept the Christ
We flex the Mic to rep for Christ
So we can put your soul at rest tonight

[Verse Two]
Yo
I don’t catch the Spirit I’m all filled up
I can’t lose it either I’m all sealed up
And you can bet yo life
I’m a rep for Christ
One taste He’ll get you right
Folks is thinking they Christian
But when they sinnin’
They don’t feel the conviction that the Spirit is givin’
And they keep living life like, “That’s cool with me.”
Y’all people ain’t fooling me
Try to play me to the left like I’m trying to get deep on them
This is real talk dawg, you better peep somethin’
This ain’t that philosophic rap like ‘Harmoynm’
And I ain’t talking about the God you heard about from mom and them
Put that blunt out dawg, put down the Heineken
“Man God understands” What? Come again
I guess you think that God is kinda’ like yo momma huh?
Like he ain’t even trippin’ on your sinnin and your drama

[Chorus]

[Verse Three]
Yo, life’s way more then ice and rims
And you don’t make enough to pay the price of sin
And God’s gon’ judge you dawg that’s reality
Saying you don’t believe is like saying there ain’t no gravity
Then running off to go jump a cliff
And when you hit the ground tell me what you get
Hey, why you running from the freedom of the gospel?
You hostile
You’re looking like your Lucifer’s apostle
But God got you
And though we all deserve death he still keep putting breath in your nostrils
But you treat Him like an obstacle
See Him come at your convenience like a stop and go
Waiting for a sweeter deal or a sign or something
Like God ain’t come down and die or something
Trust me dawg God wants the best for you
That’s why the gospel of Christ is addressed to you

[Chorus]
