As we await the release of Trippie Redd’s debut album, the 19-year-old rapper has given fans a two-track set titled TR666+!$ 1400/800.
Trippie teased the release Wednesday night, when he proposed a challenge to his fans: “comment on my last pic 70k times for something new in 2hrs,” he wrote on an Instagram story. Well, to no one’s surprise, his followers pulled it off, and were blessed with a couple of new records on the rapper’s SoundCloud page.
The first song, titled “Black Magic,” showcases Trippie’s melodic side with a smooth beat courtesy of Ricky P. The second track, called “BILAP,” finds Trippie reuniting with Chief Keef over a piano-driven beat. You can listen to both tracks via SoundCloud below.
Trippie is gearing up to release his much-anticipated studio album, tentatively titled Life’s a Trip. The rapper has been teasing the project for several months, claiming it will be a two-sided effort that'll likely span dozens of songs.
"It's going to drop around July and I've made over 35 songs for that shit,” he said during an Instagram Live broadcast this year. “I don't know if it's going to be all 35 songs on the album, but I'm going to tell you how it's going to be: There's two parts of the album. There is a more artsy, lyrical part of the album. That's where like, 'Taking A Walk,' 'Oomps Revenge,' 'Can You Rap Like Me 2,' 'How You Feel,' all the rock songs, the R&B songs, the very artsy rap songs, and shit are going to be on that side.”
Trippie Redd updated fans on the project's release, saying it's been pushed back to August. Stay tuned as more information about Life’s a Trip rolls in.
