Canton, Ohio’s Trippie Redd is my newest Soundcloud discovery and is brimming with potential. You will notice right off the bat that he has abandoned many of the regular rapper tropes as the majority of his music has to do with heartbreak, and dealing with emotions. Despite having many rap records some even being displays of traditional rap skill over boom bap production.

Trippie shines hardest on the tracks where he is crooning with slight auto tune and his signature cracked, strained vocals, most likely the reason for many of his tracks having the R&B and Soul hashtag. Standouts for me are “Oowee/Thots”, “Chair Falling”, “Romeo and Juliet” among many others. Give Trippie Redd a listen below.
