In the midst of joining Roy Woods SayLess tour, TRIPSIXX hits the net with some new music titled ‘Mind Right’.
Toronto artist TRIPSIXX teams up with New York underground prince Gab3 & sharp shooter Jake Money to put together visuals for the Prezident Jeff-produced track “Team Rocket” from his first project We Own The Night.
It’s about that time again! Keeping up with Toronto, TRIPSIXX was last seen turning up the scene with his single “Casino”. Now he’s back at it again, announcing a brand new tape called Metal Gear Tape via his Instagram.
“Casino” did numbers and had the hipsters in the city turnt up with its boastful rhymes about flexing on his frenemies letting them know that he pretty much does his own thang. But it is hardly new to him, his project We Own The Knight included some of his best work. He also dropped a mosh-pit anthem “Y-3” featuring his fellow label boss Roy Woods.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/267826445″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]
It would be an understatement to say TRIPSIXX is one of the more promising artists on the rise right now. Last year, Hypebeast aptly labeled him the Hood Bryson Tiller & HNHH compared his music to Travi$ Scott and Young Thug.
Look out for his project coming soon. Judging from the timing of this news, probably sooner than later.
FRESHMILK LAB is a movement that highlights rare, new and unconventional trends in Fashion, Art & Music. The creative studio provides exposure and a platform for underground artists. “FRESHMILKLAB 001” is the latest offering from the brand. With the multi-talented Odalys at the Creative Director helm (VOGUE, Yeezy Season, i-D, VFILES, The Weeknd, Boiler Room) the studio chose Toronto’s DATA-X to curate their second mix, one that’s sonically in the “Future R&B” genre. No stranger to the sound, he’s played alongside Chase B, Soulection’s Da-P and CYBER69 along with being featured on Hypebeast for his remix work.
To be sure, the mix is filled with rare gems from an underground culture that continues to heavily influence mainstream Hip-Hop, Pop and R&B. Boston’s Che Ecru is first on the mix with “Satisfied,” a fireball of a track with Cardo crushing the instrumental, inevitably setting the mood for a stress-free listening session: Drew Howard & Birthday Boy’s “Benny & Lil’ Ze”and Aidan O’Brien’s unreleased “New Fuzz” form a lush mini-bridge, a nihilistic rev up for a seductive vibe dictated by the rest of the artists that follow: Roy Woods, Derek Wise, Sha Hustle, Majid Jordan, Plaza, TRIPSIXX, Black Atlass and a host of Canadian youth you’ve probably never heard of. Don’t end the mix without a significant other though as seduction takes a sonically deeper turn. Listen above or on Soundcloud.
Keeping up with Toronto this week, Toronto’s TRIPSIXX is one of the many young talented artists rising from the 6.
