Trippie Red Releases video for new song “Under New Enemy”

Today multi-platinum Canton, OH, rapper and singer Trippie Redd releases the video for his the first single, Under Enemy Arms from his upcoming project.

We had left Trippie Redd in Topanga, the visual from A Love Letter To You 3 (at almost 10 million views) where he was a cult leader. He hadn’t amassed the following he has today and the video for Under Enemy Arms shows the scale of the following Trippie has amassed and the power that comes with that. In the narrative he’s turned into a powerful demonic leader. This evolution shows the major transformation Trippie Redd has undertaken with his sound, self, and vision.

Trippie Redd’s November 9, 2019, album A Love Letter To You 3 entered the Billboard Top 200 at, fittingly, number 3, and that week he held the title of the most streamed album in America. That marked Trippie’s second Top 5 in 3 months on Billboards Mainstream Top 200 Charts (In August, 2018, Redd’s Life’s A Trip LP entered #4 on the Billboard 200). He is currently at 3.5 BILLION streams.

XXL wrote Trippie succeeds by placing Redd’s narrative at its core and leaning into the inventive melodies that initially put the young rapper on the map. Lyrically, Trippie is direct. Vocally, his balance between restrained and bombastic delivery is unmatched Trippie recently graced the Jimmy Kimmel Live! outdoor Hollywood stage with a performance of Topanga Watch it HERE.&#a0;He also performed his other hit song Taking A Walk Watch it HERE.

In addition to generating nearly 4 billion streams, Trippie was named a Spotify Rise Artist, an Artist to Watch by Rolling Stone, and landed on the cover of the 2018 XXL Freshman Class. Singing real shit that people all over the world can relate to timeless, says Trippie. Timeless music literally is a concept I can live on.

Trippie Redd’s singles love scars and Dark Night Dummo [feat.Travis Scott] are RIAA certified platinum. His songs Poles 1469 and Bust Down are certified gold. He has collaborated with everyone from Travis Scott, Diplo, Julia Michaels, Lil Yachty, D.R.A.M., Alison Wonderland,Rising and Rich The Kid.

Trippie’s breakout mixtapes A Love Letter To You and A Love Letter To You 2 hit the stratosphere in 2017. Praised for his lyrics as well as his style, he chronicles love and heartbreak from the streets and experience. Trippie became serious upon becoming a rapper upon encouragement from his late older brother. Trippie Redd would later get a scar tattoo on his face to honor him after he died in a road accident in 2014 — pushing Trippie to work harder on his music. He grew up being raised by his single-parent mother (his father was incarcerated since Trippie’s birth).Life’s A Trip continues to share Trippie’s eccentrically-wild world as seen through Trippie’s eyes. He finds influences from Gorillaz, Erykah Badu, Drake, Marilyn Manson, Tupac, Nirvana, and Lil Wayne(among others).
