Trippie Redd Releases New Single ‘Dreamer’ In Celebration Of His 21st Birthday

Trippie Redd is keeping busy in quarantine – in May he released ‘Excitement‘ feat. PARTYNEXTDOOR and also featured on the late Juice WRLD’s postmortem single ‘Tell Me U Luv Me‘. Today, the prolific rapper and singer shares his latest single ‘Dreamer’ in celebration of his 21st Birthday – out now via 10K Projects / Caroline Australia. Zane Lowe aired ‘Dreamer’ on his New Music Daily Beats 1 show and caught up with Trippie via FaceTime, check out the interview HERE

One of the most versatile and creatively daring artists in hip-hop today, platinum-selling rapper, singer and songwriter Trippie Redd has landed four albums in the Top 10 in the space of three years. With the November 2019 release of A Love Letter To You 4 —his first-ever album to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart — Trippie offered up his most dynamic body of work to date, delivering a 21-track effort that amassed more than 125 million stream in its first week alone. The now–21-year-old Ohio native continually defies genre boundaries, embedding his melodic take on rap with elements of rock-and-roll and heavy metal to ultimately create a sound that’s wildly experimental yet massively appealing.

As he recalls, the urge to create his own music arose soon after his older brother, an aspiring rapper who went by the name Dirty Redd, died in a car accident when Trippie was 10. “I took his dream and did it myself,” Trippie says. Drawing much of his inspiration from the free-flowing style and inventive lyricism of Lil Wayne, Trippie began recording in his cousin’s basement and later relocated to Atlanta to further hone his skills, quickly landing a record deal with 10K Projects in 2017.

Since then, he has had a deep commitment to evolving his sound and to constantly create new music, but despite his desire to continually evolve, there are certain qualities that endure across all of Trippie’s music—most notably, his penchant for crafting songs that hit on a visceral level. “I like making timeless music,” he says. “You’ve got to think of a timeless concept—love, hate, anger, sadness—all that shit is timeless. And if you can make something without it just meaning one thing, people can feel it and turn it into their own. That’s what makes it timeless.”

Phi11a Links With U.S. Rapper, Trippie Redd for ‘Witness’

Last year Sydney rapper Phi11a announced himself with some of the most versatile flows and collaborations seen by an upcoming Australian rapper. Now with the release of his new track, ‘Witness feat. Trippie Redd’, he’s cementing himself as one of the most important up and comers in the country.

A collaboration with emo-trap rapper Trippie Redd was what Phi11a pictured in his mind back in 2018 when he started recording the demo with the barest of equipment – a $300 mic in a home studio based out in Western Sydney.

“It’s crazy. When I originally started working on this song, I thought of either Trippie or Young Thug for the feature (if there’d be one). So even from the start I feel like the song had his energy in it.”

Trippie in the end was the only artist who could bring what was needed for this hazy lo-fi track. “He understood the spookiness and gloom within the song, but also its explosive potential. His verse is crazy. It’s straight from the playbook of my favourite Trippie era.”

Witness follows Phi11a’s 2019 releases; his debut single ‘Overdose’ and ‘Sad Cowboy Shit’, a 4-track surprise mixtape, produced by US producer, Jimmy Duval (XXXTentacion, Lil Pump, Ski Mask the Slump God and Rich The Kid). For ‘Overdose’ the inner west Sydney local worked with Atlanta producer Supah Mario (Drake, Young Thug) and received shout outs by the likes of D12 and DMX.

Phi11a has also just released his new video for “Witness ft. Trippie Redd.” The glitchy, lofi video was edited by local up-and-coming Sydney director, Murli Dhir, with additional graphics being supplied by BabyCq22.
