Trippie Redd is most certainly one of the leading faces of the younger generation of rappers these days. Emerging to stardom over the past four years, the young rapper has done quite well for himself as he’s developed somewhat of a cult following. Since the release of his debut mixtape A Love Letter To You back in 2017, it’s been uphill for him and he’s done more than enough groundwork to solidify his spot in this industry for a very long time. Today, Trippie unleashes his latest effort Pegasus and the star-studded lengthy effort is one to remember for sure.

Trippie’s third studio album serves as the follow up to his 2019 LP ! and it’s nothing short of heat. Pegasus was initially announced on his Instagram story back in March and many fans began to lose heart that it would see the light of day. Later in June, Redd had also announced the album would get a deluxe version, and that it would be his long-awaited rock project that he teased in March 2019.
The lengthy project includes numerous musical contributions from some heavyweights in the game including Myiah Lynnae, Yung LB, PartyNextDoor, Chris Brown, Rich the Kid, Young Thug, Future, Quavo, Lil Mosey, Busta Rhymes, Sean Kingston, Doe Boy, Lil Wayne, HoodyBaby and Swae Lee.
In a sit down with Lyrical Lemonade earlier this year, the 21 year old rapper promised fans a magical listening experience with Pegasus:
“The direction on the album is supposed to feel mystical — Like dreamy, nostalgic, outer space. Everything is gonna feel like some off-the-wall fairy tale type shit. For example, I got songs on there called ‘Pink Pixie Dust,’ a self-titled song ‘Pegasus,’ a song named ‘Fairy Tales,’ a song named ‘The Milky Way.’ It’s all going in that direction.”
