Mansion Music, the latest album from rapper Trippie Redd, is a disappointing and underwhelming release. From its lazy production to its boring and rather old lyrics, this album fails to live up to the hype and expectations set by Trippie Redd’s previous work.
Mansion Music lacks cohesion. The album bounces from genre to genre for no reason, leaving the listener perplexed and confused.
This lack of direction is incredibly frustrating, given the apparent talent and potential Trippie Redd’s seemed to have years ago as a musician.
The opening track, “Dreamer,” sets the tone for the album with a generic trap beat and Trippie’s signature auto-tuned vocals. The lyrics are nothing new, with Trippie rapping about his wealth and success.
“I’m Sorry” featuring Juice Wrld, is the worst track of the album. The beat is not original, and Juice Wrld’s verse is uninspired. It feels as though the song was only included to have Juice Wrld’s feature, and not much thought was put into the music.
“R.I.P.” featuring DaBaby, is a forgettable and uninspired song. The lyrics are generic, and the beat is nothing special. DaBaby’s verse is the only saving grace of the song.
The highlight of the album, “I Don’t Want Another Sorry” featuring DaBaby, is a rare moment of genuine emotion and vulnerability. Still, more is needed to save the album as a whole.
Mansion Music feels like a step backward for Trippie Redd. The album’s lack of creativity and meaning makes it challenging for the listener to connect with the artist. Mansion Music falls short of expectations and proves that the artist has hit a creative roadblock.
Trippie Redd relies too heavily on his past successes and needs to take more risks in his music. Unless he challenges himself creatively, he will become history in the rap game. Fans deserve better, and it’s time for Trippie Redd to step up and deliver on what could be his full potential.
