Trippie Redd has given fans a look at a pair of horn-laced headphones he’s collaborated on with Beats by Dre — which he said has been a dream of his.
On Thursday (January 26), the rapper shared a video of himself wearing the new headphones while smoking a blunt on his Instagram Story. The headphones come in a red colorway with white “222” and crucifix markings. The most eye-catching detail is the two horns protruding out the top of the headphones.
“One of my dreams came true @beatsbydre @apple #ALLTY5 #MM,” Trippie wrote in the caption of his post.
There’s no word on whether the headphones will be made available to the public; however, some of Trippie’s friends were sent a pair and posed with them in their individual IG Stories, which the rapper shared.

The collaboration comes after Trippie Redd returned with his star-studded Mansion Musik album last week. The project, which was also executive produced by Chief Keef, boasts features from Future, Travis Scott, Lil Baby, Kodak Black, Lil Durk, Juice WRLD, DaBaby, G Herbo and many more.
Lil Baby’s feature on “Fully Loaded” received quite a reaction from fans, especially viral streamer Kai Cenat. K.C. had a few things to say during his livestream while listening to Trippie’s latest album and he didn’t believe Baby’s effort lived up to the expectations he’s set throughout his decorated career.
“Nah, man, what the fuck? Bro, what the fuck? You’re held here with priorities, right? You know my expectations is here, right?” he said with his hand raised above his head. “Did you just moan in the mic?”
Kai Cenat wasn’t the only angry fan critical of Baby’s performance as plenty of Akademiks’ followers flooded his comment section under Cenat’s viral reaction.
“Dead thought my phone was glitching,” one person wrote while another betrayed fan added: “By far baby worse verse ever!” Some others said that Trippie needed to get his refund for the verses or he hopefully got two for the price of one.
Speaking of refunds, fans in Richmond, Virginia, were calling for Trippie to give them one after he showed up late to a recent concert and only performed a handful of songs. Fans jumped on social media to voice their frustration at allegedly having to wait outside the venue for hours — and then even longer inside until he showed up to perform just “3-4” songs.
“Trippie redd at the concert in Richmond was absolutely ass,” one attendee wrote on Twitter. “The venue didn’t know how to treat its customers. Trippie love him to death but 3 hours late. Unless the venue lied and said he was showing up at 10. A lot of people left.”
Another said: “Idk what happened at the trippie redd concert in Richmond but… waiting in the freezing cold rain and waiting till 3 am for him to show up was not the move.”
Fans booed the promoters and chanted “refund” during the DJ’s warm-up set while waiting for Trippie to hit the stage. Various clips from the concert show a lack of energy inside the venue as the rapper reportedly showed up at 3 a.m., despite the flyer saying doors opened at 10 p.m.
