Beautiful Life 2 (Mine)

  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • This is a track from Rise, Trip Lee's fifth album. He chose that title as he wanted it to be a challenge. "I wanted to challenge people in different ways to rise up above the low expectations the culture has for us and to live how we were made to live," the rapper explained to Artist Direct. "That goes from a song like 'Lights On' to a song like 'Beautiful Life 2,' which is talking about my family and ways I've sought to rise up. I'm trying to keep that theme laced throughout the whole record."
