Artist Feature: Trippie Redd

Could be next to blow

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.

Brockhampton has been releasing a variety of singles in the lead up to their debut project and they have been a smorgasbord of musical styles and tastes. From “Fact”, to “Heat” to “Star” the group has shown a wide array of skills and a high level ability to craft songs of almost any genre. On “Star” the group tackles contemporary rap styles and adds their signature quirk to it as the video is shot in the same place as all the others but with a strange twist. Watch below.
