Two months ago, Trippie Redd released his latest full-length studio album, !. A 14-track exploration of new sounds and previously-uncharted sonic territory, ! featured collaborations with Diplo, Playboi Carti, Lil Baby, The Game, Lil Duke and Coi Leray. Now, continuing to support that LP, the 20-year-old superstar is back with a new music video for !‘s title-track and opening record. Notably, the frenetic visual for the Jr Blender- and Diplo-produced “!” was put together by director Matt Keane and unfolds like a frenzied journey through time, space and different dimensions.
“I mainly try to freestyle everything. I really like humming, and I mumble stuff,” Trippie Redd shared with DJBooth, opening up about his creative process for an August interview. “Ultimately, if I do a fire melody that I think I would wanna hear over and over again, I put words to it … I sit in the studio, and party, and do all types of crazy shit. Everything is always an experiment in the studio. I try to do everything differently and be so versatile with my music. Coming up with different melodies, different sounds. I’m always into sonics. That’s what I put my all into.”
“A person like me, because I’m so melodic, I can go anywhere with my voice,” Trippie Redd added during a conversation with us for an episode of our MIC/LINE podcast. “That’s why it’s just so amazing to do rock, because you could just go anywhere. You could sing anything. I could sing anything.”
