Trippie Redd is an 18 year old rapper from Canton, Ohio, now based in Atlanta, Georgia and is the torch bearer for a new wave of hip hop.
For ease of access to listeners, his style is similar to Lil Uzi Vert with Travis Scott like hooks a constant theme throughout his work. Trippie cites Marilyn Manson, Drake and MF DOOM as his major influences and the diversity of this selection is borne out in his music. Trippie’s flow is melodic with lyrics purposeful, often using love and heartbreak as his main themes. Trippie has a larger-than-life personality and magnetic charisma which comes across in every song he records and his various social media outlets.
