After warming up the crowd at Wireless, Crystal Palace, Trippie Redd performed at one of two London dates on July 12 at the O2 Academy Brixton, solidifying his reputation as one of the most electrifying performers of the modern rap generation.
Ever since he first gained widespread attention in 2017 for his innovative take on trap music influenced by emo and rock, Trippie’s success has continued to grow.
The Ohio native is entering the peak of his career as a true pioneer of the SoundCloud wave and one of its last remaining success stories. His erratic vocal inflections are as captivating as they were on ‘Love Scars,’ but he’s also tried out some new things, like on ‘Miss The Rage,’ his most recent smash hit.
As a matter of fact, the rapper is credited with creating the genre of music known as “rage music,” whose almost 8-bit production style has influenced a new generation of rap artists like Yeat and Ken Carson.
Trippie and the sweaty concertgoers didn’t mind the muggy British summer weather. The sold-out crowd rushed to the front as the lights went down and chants of “big 14 know what the fuck going on” reverberated through the arena in anticipation of the show’s wacky energy.
One of the rapper’s most popular songs, “Dark Knight Dummo,” was chosen as the lead single. A collective anthemic yell of “count my gap” resounded through the venue as mosh pits spread like wildfire to the sound of booming bass.
Is this what it’s like to die? The stage lights would flash red, the bass would reverberate through the audience, and Trippie would vanish.
We’re probably not too far off. After such an exciting introduction, perhaps Trippie would slow things down a bit. If you think you know, think again. Here comes ‘Death,’ sampled by the Three Six Mafia. I feel like I might be dying right now.
His Being on Track Makes Me Think
Wearing a T-shirt that reads “1400,” the street on which Trippie grew up, he launches into the Juice Wrld-assisted “1400/999 Freestyle” and invites the crowd to recite Juice’s famous stanza, which they do, with great skill.
Wish provides a welcome opportunity to take a deep breath. Incredibly, Trippies’s strained, emotional vocals translate just as well live as they do on the track, leaving me to ponder how he’s never had any vocal problems. After only a few bars, I feel like my vocal cords are going to break.
Another somber, personal moment, “F****k Love” features Trippie yelling “long live X” in tribute to his late buddy and collaborator XXXTentacion.
The crowd can’t help but dig deeper even when things calm down a bit. The singer then announces that he has a surprise guest in the audience, which gets everyone excited (even if the guest really should have stayed backstage).
The crowd’s reaction when Tion Wayne exploded onto the stage was predictably divided, given the vast aesthetic distance between Wayne and Trippie. For more updates And information You can see our Website TheActiveNews.Com.
