After several teasers and a brief delay, Trippie Redd’s much anticipated debut album has finally arrived. The project, titled Life’s a Trip, hit streaming services Thursday night, months after he began teasing the release on social media.
Trippie spoke about Life’s a Trip during an Instagram Live broadcast back in May, claiming the album would be broken up into two parts and would arrive sometime in July.
“It's going to drop around July and I've made over 35 songs for that shit,” he said. “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 also claimed Erykah Badu and Lil Wayne would appear on the project; but obviously, a lot can change within in a couple of months. The album’s final version spans 14 tracks and includes features by Travis Scott (“Dark Knight Dummo”), Diplo (“Wish”), Young Thug and Reese LaFlare (“Forever Ever”), as well as production by Murda Beatz, Wheezy, and Honorable C.N.O.T.E.
