Philly’s Lord Trippy is here with his debut commercial project. TRIPPY BOOMIN is entirely produced by Matti Boomin and features the likes of Shaq G, Tawobi, and Journell Pierre. Lord Trippy, along with Tawobi, are apart of the Highest Basement Collective. Fellow HBC member Moses Mosima contributes backing vocals on track eleven, “Enable Me.” TRIPPY BOOMIN was mixed and mastered by Justin Miller aka Slow Wave Audio and was executive produced by RileyofHBC aka Riley Polis.
Even with a tracklist of thirteen songs, the run time still sits at under half an hour, yet each song presents the energy that Lord Trippy was trying to exclaim. Of the thirteen tracks, the singles “Bet” and “Obama (Forty Four)” are featured. “Bet” is from February of this year, while the latter track is over a year old and was released on July 4, 2019. The two songs alone amassed over a hundred thousand streams just on Spotify before TRIPPY BOOMIN was released.
Upon the release of TRIPPY BOOMIN, the music video for “Solange F S” was premiered. The song, which stands for “Solange Freestyle,” was given a simple, yet mesmerizing music video. Directed by RileyofHBC, this is just one of the great ways that the project was promoted. The album was announced a week prior to its release by none other than the infamous Carole Baskins, which Lord Trippy shared with his social media.
