Michael Lamar White II, better known by his stage name Trippie Redd, is a musician from the United States who raps and sings his own songs.
The SoundCloud rap culture, which began to get attention from the general public in the latter half of the 2010s, counts him as one of its most renowned members.
Trippie Redd is a hip-hop musician who is one of the most diverse and adventurous in terms of music. He is one of the most popular artists in the genre because his music is both very experimental and very easy to understand.
Since releasing his debut mixtape, titled “A Love Letter to You,” in 2017, the multi-platinum-selling, chart-topping rapper, and singer/songwriter has consistently defied genre boundaries in his music. He does this by fusing his melodic take on rap with the frenetic elements of rock and roll and heavy metal.
And the Ohio native, who is just 23 years old, mixes that limitless inventiveness with a potently raw emotional effect, thanks to the insightful words he writes and the subtle but hard-hitting vocal performance he gives.
In 2015, Trippie Redd made his debut with a series of songs that were released online. These songs gave listeners a glimpse of the versatile style that he had developed, which combined aspects of cloud rap, emo rap, and trap-influenced by T-Pain, Gucci Mane, and Lil Wayne with the vigour of punk and metal inspired by Slipknot and Marilyn Manson.
Both Trippie’s mixtape, A Love Letter to You 4, which he released in 2019 and his studio album, Trip at Knight, which he released in 2021, debuted in the upper reaches of the Billboard charts. This is evidence that mainstream audiences have taken to Trippie’s fluid approach to genre and creative expression.
After contributing to mixtapes like 2016’s Beast Mode and 2017’s Awakening My InnerBeast, Trippie Redd released his most extensive effort with 2017’s A Love Letter to You, which debuted in the top 100 of the Billboard 200 albums chart. The sequel, titled A Love Letter to You 2, was released the following year and entered the Billboard 200 albums list in the top 40 positions.
During the same month, Trippie and Lil Wop collaborated on the extended play (EP) Angels & Demons. Before the end of the year, he earned his first entry on the Hot 100 with the tune “Dark Knight Dummo,” which included Travis Scott as a guest artist.
Hip-hop heavyweight Trippie Redd has surprised his fans by announcing that he would release a 25-track album titled Mansion Musik. To date, his music has been streamed more than 30 billion times.
This project, which pays homage to Chief Keef’s Mansion Musick mixtape from 2018, includes Keef not only as an executive producer but also as a featured musician on the songs “ATLANTIS” and “ROCK OUT.” In addition to that, the tracklist delivers a powerful punch with a long list of guest appearances, some of which include Travis Scott, Future, Lil Baby, JuiceWRLD, and Lil B.
