With his debut album Life’s A Trip set to drop on August 10th, Trippie Redd has dropped off another offering from the album, “Taking A Walk.”
While turning in a more muted effort than some of his notable hits, it’s great to see Scott Storch once again holding it down on the keys. This time around, he opts for a subdued turn on a Rhodes-like organ, providing Trippie with plenty of space to lay down his angst-laden lyricism. Despite frequent allusions to suicide, Trippie does add a little bit of levity to the proceeding. “Get this green then smoke this green, gotta stay potent,” raps, “pussy n***a talking shit but he ain’t know shit, chicken noodle ass n***a, man, you boneless.”
In truth, “Taking A Walk” is actually somewhat more self-aware than we’ve seen from Trippie. In the song’s chorus, he acknowledges a perceived fascination with his own mortality, joking that his casket will be lavish in comparison to standard wood. What do ya’ll think? Is this the one?
Ayy, rule number 1 never trust no bitch
Get this green then smoke this green, gotta stay potent
Pussy n***a talking shit but he ain’t know shit
Chicken noodle ass n***a, man, you boneless
Yeah, I keep my ratchet, boy, you pole-less
