Less than 3 years into the hip-hop industry and only 21 years old, Trippie Redd debuted his most recent album “Pegasus” on October 30, 2020. Prior to this, Trippie gave us a sneak peak of what the project would look like with his hit single “Excitement” in May 2020 featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR. This was all after “A Love Letter to You 4”, when he received his first #1 album to ever be listed on the Billboard 200 chart.
The “Pegasus” track list consists of 26 songs, creating 74 minutes of artwork. 12 of which contain features from various top artists in the rap game. One of Trippie’s biggest assets and contributions to the industry is his ability to be versatile. His first few songs begin more slow paced with more romantic lyrics. Meanwhile, the final few songs of the project are turnt sped up sounds. He has high-profile collabs on the album with artists such as Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, Future, Young Thug, Swae Lee, Quavo, Sean Kingston, and more. With a little under 11.5 million followers on Instagram, Trippie’s fan base is up and growing.
