Still riding the success of his DJ Drama-hosted Guerilla mixtape, Memphis rapper, Don Trip, turns his rhymes into reality in the SOHH exclusive premiere of his “I’ma Mess” record.
In the record’s music video, Don, alongside rap cohorts Starlito and Wale, warn various video vixens of his inability to commit.
Memphis rapper Don Trip continues to build off the buzz from his new Guerilla mixtape with the new Fat Katz-presented “I’ma Mess” music video. The G. Visuals film uses a soft, warm tone as Trip is seen rapping in a luxurious home, showing off his pick-up game to a scantly dressed video vixen who he reminds despite their hot and steamy hook-up, it is nothing more than sex. Starlito follows suit decked in glasses and an Orioles fitted cap, surrounded by a handful of ladies. Wale later ends the track lounged with a woman fiddling with his braided hair as he reminds her he is not up for a longterm relationship. (VEVO)
Trip recently hit up SOHH and spoke about his new Guerilla mixtape.
“The number one reason [you should download it] is because I feel like this is something hip-hop needs. Of course I’m a fairly new artist and this is new music, but if you’re a fan of Don Trip, you know I put out honest music and I put out quality music. I’m real excited about getting this out. This is the first project I’ve done with an established deejay and then you have DJ Drama too? I feel like this is something the game needs. It takes all kinds of music for hip-hop to keep pumping and I feel like my music, which is honest music, I feel like it’s needed. I feel like it helps fulfill the whole hip-hop picture.” (SOHH 5 Reasons)
Along with “I’ma Mess,” Trip said the project as a whole is some of his best music to date.
“I feel like this is some of my greatest work. I haven’t put out a tape since around last September and it’s for the fans and the people that have been supporting me since day one. I haven’t put out no new music from then to now, just to build up to this release. I feel like it’s some of my greatest work because I’m in a different point in my career than I was before. Even back in September to right now, I’m in a different space. I’ve been doing this since I was 16, so from 16 to now, I’ve seen a lot of things, done a lot of things and experienced a lot of things. In the music business, I’ve grown a lot.” (SOHH 5 Reasons)
The rapper recently told SOHH about coming up and swaying from the Memphis rap comparisons.
“If I would have came out and said I’m from Memphis, the first thing you would have looked at was the people from Memphis that came out before me,” Trip explained to SOHH. “That’s not what I’m showing. I’m showing that I can do this, this is something I’m great at. If I let you know who I am first, you get to develop your opinion off that and not where I’m from and what I came from. You don’t got this expectation of who I’m supposed to be.” (SOHH)
