Earlier this week, Trippie Redd decided to surprise everyone by announcing that someone named hnrzhunter — presumed to be a fellow artist and collaborator — will be releasing a new mixtape from Trippie titled Hate Is Dead (or hα†ε ïš dεαd). Shortly after, said mixtape arrived with nine tracks and a couple of assists from K Suave and Zello Ocho. The opening track, “Fire In My Heart ﹤3,” is a previously leaked offering that quickly reminds listeners why the Canton, Ohio talent holds his position as one of the best of his generation, delivering harmonies about women, violence, vices, and more over production from Loesoe and Supah Mario:
“Fire in my heart ’cause you know I came from darkness, say I need God, wasn’t no Jesus in them ‘partments, dog ass hoes, get them bitches off the carpet, let ’em outside, man, them bitches keep barkin’, on the block with that fire, don’t make me commit no arson, always gas shit up, you gon’ make me have to spark shit, got the blue and green beam, bitch, I feel just like a Martian, in her Milky Way, and I pulled up in that starship, yeah, wake up in the morning, rub her ass and pour a four up, pour a damn four up, I pour a damn four up, and go up…”
This past August saw Trippie Redd liberating his fourth studio LP Trip At Knight, which contained 18 songs and a wealth of contributions from SoFaygo, Drake, Lil Uzi Vert, Playboi Carti, Ski Mask The Slump God, Juice WRLD, XXXTentacion, Polo G, Lil Durk, Sada Baby, Icewear Vezzo, and Babyface Ray. Trip At Knight quickly landed Trippie at the number one spot on the Billboard 200 thanks to 81,000 album equivalent units sold during its first week of release.
