In 2021, Trippie Redd may be a rapper with fantastic timing.
After the release of his fourth album Trip at Knight on August 20, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, The “Dark Knight Dummo” rapper notched his fourth No. 1 on the chart with 81,000 equivalent album units in its first week.
The Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart also includes ten of the album’s songs.
The collections of artists on the big screen include Lil Uzi Vert, SoFaygo, Playboi Carti, Juice WRLD and XXXTENTACION, as well as Drake. The latter collaboration arguably sparked the present streaming wars between Kanye West and Certified Lover Boy, with both artists releasing albums over an extended period.
On the track “Betrayal,” on the Trip At Knight album, Drake fired off a quip heard throughout the world: “All these fools I’m beefin’ that I barely know/Forty-five, forty-four (Burned out), let it go/Ye ain’t changin’ shit for me, it’s set in stone” — a shot fired at Donda’s unpredictable release.
The lyrics were as intense to Kanye West as the Michael Jordan meme was, and he allegedly leaked Drake’s house and location, prompting him to visit his Toronto headquarters with Donda advertisements.
The Trip At Knight’s Billboard feat succeeds previous albums A Love Letter to You 3, A Love Letter to You 4 and 2020’s Pegasus, which will undoubtedly bring great news for diehard fans across the country.
