About Trippie Redd
Trippie Redd In Concert
When rapper Trippie Redd, aka Michael White, gets in front of an audience, it's less a performance and more a raw, unbridled parade of emotions. He reaches deep down to access his most intense feelings and share them with his audience. The passion, hatred, hope, mistrust, joy, sadness, anger, and love in his heart is laid bare for all to see. And of course, in the process, he trots out tunes that went viral and made him a million-selling artist before he was out of his teens, including such crowd-pleasers as "Love Scars," "Dark Knight Dummo," and "Taking a Walk." With a sound that blends hip-hop flow, R&B grooves, and moody alt-rock atmosphere, Trippie Redd is able to attract audiences from across the genre spectrum. He delivers a show full of urgency, intensity, and a visceral dose of street reality as it is experienced in America today.
Trippie Redd Background
Like so many who grabbed the brass ring before him, Trippie Redd came from humble circumstances but created a musical approach that endeared him to millions. He was born Michael White in Canton, Ohio, to an incarcerated father and a mother who had to shoulder the burden of parenthood alone. The budding performer soaked in the sounds of ‘90s R&B and hip-hop from his mother, and those influences fed his own musical vision, which revealed itself at an early age. By the time he was 17, Trippie Redd had released his first mixtape, 2017's ‘A Love Letter to You,' which busted through to the Billboard charts despite its indie origins. By the time 2018 rolled around, the precocious performer had himself a couple of platinum singles ("Love Scars" and "Dark Knight Dummo") and a No. 3 mixtape, ‘A Love Letter to You 3.' That same year, he got around to releasing his first full-length LP, ‘Life's a Trip,' taking it all the way to No. 4 on the Hot 100.
