    Michael White, also known as Trippie Redd was born on June 18, 1999 in Canton, Ohio. He started to take his music career seriously and was constantly recording and releasing music. He posted “ Sub-Zero” and “New Ferrari” in 2014, but deleted them off soundcloud soon after. Trippie attended high school in Canton achieving a 4.0 GPA and is an affiliate of the blood gang. He later moved to Atlanta after graduating, where he met another successful artist Lil Wop and was soon offered a deal with a record label.

Lil Wop helped Trippie get into a professional studio, where he started working with other artists like Kodie Shane and released three project titled Awakening My Inner Beast, Beast Mode and Rock the World Trippie. He eventually signed to the label Strainge Entertainment (Elliot Grainge Entertainment) and moved to Los Angeles. In May 2017, he released his debut mixtape, A Love Letter to You, with the lead single “Love Scars” for which he received more than 8 million views on YouTube within several months, and more then 13 million on SoundCloud.

Trippie featured on XXXTentacion’s album 17, on the song “Fuck Love” which placed number 41 on the Billboard Hot 100. In October 2017, he released his second mixtape, A Love Letter to You II. This album debuted at #34 on the Billboard 200. Later that month, he released a collaboration EP with Lil Wop titled Angels & Demons.

Angels & Demons

In December Trippie released the song “Dark Knight Dummo”, featuring Travis Scott. The song peaked at 72 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it his first entry on the chart as a lead artist. Later that month he then released the song “TR666” featuring Swae Lee. Trippie kept working hard, constantly recording and putting out content until more and more people found him and he branched out from SoundCloud to mainstream. He has a very unique sound, and makes songs with many different vibes from happy to sad. Trippie is still one of my favorite artists, and I would recommend him for sure.
