About two weeks ago, I featured, in volume 45 of Quickies, a song by Trippij entitled “Bounty (F*** That N**** Freestyle).” Today, the song has officially released on DSPs such as Spotify and TIDAL. Below is a blurb I wrote for the song during Volume 45.
In a few words, the song is a futuristic-sounding song about toxic relationships and building oneself up after dealing with BS. Trippij’s track is simply about getting “shit off your chest while parting ways with trauma and baggage.” Sonically, think Tierra Whack meets Kendrick Lamar with the house-y vibes of an Azealia Banks. I also love the fact that the track becomes frantic as it goes on, meshing the anger Trippij feels while also discussing the pain that he’s letting going of.
I love that this one’s finally on other DSPs because it’s a powerful song. “Bounty” is one of those cuts that lets it be known that Trippij won’t settle for less than what he’s worth and won’t settle for toxicity, in any sense of the word. Regardless of who you are, you can feel and empathize with that sort of energy. Check out the track above and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
