Late last year, Trippie Redd revealed that he would soon be releasing a new body of work titled TRIP AT KNIGHT, which acts as the sequel to his 2018 debut LP LIFE’S A TRIP. Today (July 16) the emcee releases another taste from the project, the Lil Uzi Vert-assisted “Holy Smokes.” On the track, Trippie Redd takes the duty of setting the tone of the song with his opening hook:
Holy fuckin’ smokes, I got my money up (Cash), countin’ all these bands, took me a while just to damn run it up/ Multi millions, I fill a hundred up, all this cash on me but I still can’t buy love
Put the hundons in the Chanel, got my racks up/ Sit back, flip shit like a acrobat, n***a, get the stacks up/ Got two accounts, still got millions in my backup (All this cash) on me and this money still won’t buy love (Oh)
According to a Genius annotation, in July 1st during a livestream, Adin Ross accidentally reveals that he is going to be in a music video with Trippie Redd and Uzi. Later that same night, Trippie posts a preview on his story of the “Holy Smokes” music video set, confirming the song’s name, placement on TRIP AT KNIGHT.
Trippie Redd also recently announced his Tripp At Knight North American tour, which kicks off in Minneapolis on August 25 and wraps on October 6 in Los Angeles. TRIP AT KNIGHT follows last October’s Pegasus, a 26-track offering that saw a slew of appearances from PARTYNEXTDOOR, Chris Brown, Rich The Kid, Young Thug, Future, Quavo, Busta Rhymes, Sean Kingston, Doe Boy, Lil Wayne, Swae Lee, and more. As with previous drops, Pegasus saw considerable success on the Billboard 200 chart — it peaked at number two thanks to an impressive 60,000 album equivalent units sold during its first week of release.
