Trippie Redd is showing no signs of slowing down. After recently topping the Billboard 200 charts, the Ohio rapper is back with new visuals for “The Grinch,” a cut off his mixtape A Love Letter to You 4, just in time for the holiday season.
Don’t let the song title fool you though. The track is doused in gritty trap-tinged instrumentals, setting stage for one of Redd’s most intense vocal deliveries — the music video further amplifies the song’s intensity. Directed by William Child, it’s a gripping stop-motion animation that follows a clay version of Redd, who just got out from prison, on a ruthless hunt for all the people who had snitched on him. Much of the video is set in grim, low-light backdrops or the buzzing white fluorescent lights of an interrogation room. After tracking down most of Redd’s enemies, the last person on the chopping block is a green figure that closely resembles the iconic Dr. Seuss character The Grinch. The video ends on a cliffhanger as the green foe walks onto a remote rooftop where Redd has been patiently waiting, glaring at the target through a small opening.
