Compellingly unpredictable, ! is doubtless part of the genre’s forward march – but it’s hard to get past the sense that White has sacrificed a coherent artistic identity in the name of progress.

On his journey to having a diverse sound, Trippie Redd has put out '!', a fitfully inspired album of soulful tracks that are a little rough around the edges.
Trippie Redd’s sprawling album is designed to show his versatility, but it’s not nearly wild enough to distract from its lack of coherent ideas.

! is more numbing than visceral. After it's done, it's hard to remember anything that was worth latching onto.

Me, jokingly, when the album started: trap died when the first kid said "trap's not dead!"

Me, when the album ended: curiosity killed the cat, thank GOD I'm not a cat.
The Carti song really wasn't anything special. Trippie Redd removing that song from the album is him accepting failure as an artist. At this point, he doesn't control his own albums, the fans do. I was never the biggest fan of Trippie, but with songs like Topanga I thought he showed real promise and could've brought some fresh new ideas to hip hop music.

If you want me to not kill myself so damn bad then dont make music that is so terrible it makes me contemplate suicide
Trippie Redd's "!" Managed to make me feel like I was high and floating which is pretty much all I ask for on an album like this, Production is a bit rough and lyrics are basic, but it has an aesthetic that is powerful. I felt good listening to this album and had no major issues with the album until "RIOT." It was a nice auto pilot drug trip.

The vocals are processed as all hell, and it just sounds nice. It is like a druggy dream.
This one time a few weeks ago I went up to TheSoundBinge and I was all like 'hey Amy gimme an artist to listen to rn' and she was like 'Trippie Redd'

So I listened to A Love Letter To You and it was alright, guy can actually kinda somewhat rap sometimes tbh I just think he sounds very shit when he sings in basically any context

Unfortunately tho, that is what this new album '!' consists of like 90% of the time, also hated the production on here, the way the kicks were obnoxiously mixed in all ... read more
