"I grew up listening to a lot of different music," Trippie Redd told us earlier this summer when we spent 24 hours with him in Miami. "To create my own style, I combined three or four different styles and put them together. That's Trippie Redd's style. Basically hip-hop, R&B, alternative rock, and fuckin' pop."
His breakthrough hit "Love Scars" combined bass-heavy hip-hop production with wailing, emotionally-charged vocals that felt inspired by angsty alternative rock and pop music. But his A Love Letter To You project also included moments like "Can You Rap Like Me?" that showed off his traditional rap skills as well.
The follow-up, A Love Letter To You 2, follows a similar formula. The bulk of the tape falls in line with the genre-defying melodic style of "Love Scars," but he also takes moments to flash his strength as an emcee on songs like "Hellboy" and "Dangerous."
