During a guest appearance on Power 106.1, Roddy Ricch was asked to speak on who he believed to be the G.O.A.T. rappers under 25, and in turn listed Kodak Black, NBA YoungBoy and himself. NLE Choppa immediately took offense to not being included, and now Trippie Redd wants to be a part of the conversation as well.
Earlier this week, Trippie casually flexed his plaques on Instagram, showcasing the 43 gold and platinum certifications he’s received from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) throughout his career. Many of the plaques derived from his 2019 album A Love Letter To You 4, which itself is certified platinum.
The Ohio native wasn’t alone in his assertion, with CyHi The Prynce and IDK among those applauding Trippie’s success in DJ Akademiks’ Instagram comments section.
“We launched 10K Projects as a label where artists have complete creative freedom and the support to realize their vision,” 10K Projects founder Elliot Grainge said in March. “Trippie Redd has thrived under these conditions, releasing a lifetime’s worth of music in just five short years and becoming a singular voice in contemporary music. I know I speak for everyone at the label when I say I am so honored and humbled to be able to continue our extraordinary partnership with Trippie for years to come.”
Trippie Redd added, “Elliot signed me when I was 16. From the start, he’s always pushed me to do everything on my own terms which is the most important thing to me. I’m grateful to have had him as a partner for this long and excited to make more hits with 10K and keep growing together.”
