Trippie Redd is set to debut a new original Snapchat docuseries, titled “Life’s A Tripp,” delving into relevant socio-political issues currently happening across the U.S.

The multi-platinum rapper will focus on topics including race and policing through conversation with the LAPD, the homeless crisis through impactful conversations with Skid Row residents, wrongful incarceration, immigration reform, mental health, drug addiction and food apartheid. Set in Los Angeles, the docuseries will also feature several other names in music, including Miguel, Machine Gun Kelly and G-Eazy, while also shedding light on charitable organizations like Without Shelter, CA Innocence Project and Ghetto Gastro.

In the upcoming show’s debut trailer, visuals of Black Lives Matter protests, raging wildfires and widespread pollution flash before a contemplative Redd begins speaking: “I’ve lived through wildfires and pandemics,” Redd says. “I lost a friend to the opioid crisis and even more to gun violence. We can’t afford to look the other way anymore.”

Upon quick reflections on the problems that exist within each of the aforementioned societal issues, Redd concludes the trailer with a simple goal: “I want to listen to understand what’s wrong with the world and become part of the solution.”

Take a look at the full trailer, exclusively premiered with HYPEBEAST, above.

Produced by Trooper Entertainment, the eight episode Snap Original series will premiere on June 5. New episodes will launch every other day following the debut.

In music news, Lil Baby and Lil Durk recently released a “Voice Of The Heroes” visual from their upcoming collaborative album.
