Trip Lee and Lecrae Reimagine The Matrix with New Visual for Manolo
Friend of Parlé Mag, Trip Lee has never been one to be complacent. The rapper is back with his new single, “Manolo,” which features label mate Lecrae. The video takes the pair through a Matrix type journey. “Manolo” was featured on Trip’s fifth studio album and companion book Rise.
Released via a microsite, fans are given the choice to select between a red or blue pill leading them to view the official “Manolo” music video or exclusive behind-the-scenes content. The video and concept for the microsite includes a nod to one of Trip Lee’s favorite movies, “The Matrix,” and is a reflection of the song’s theme, Truth versus Lies. Trip Lee reveals,“In Spanish, ‘Manolo’ means ‘God is with us’. There’s some gun terminology, but the weapon we’re talking about is truth. We fight lies with the word of God.”
