Trippie Redd – “Pegasus” review

This is the 3rd full-length album from Ohio superstar Trippie Redd. Blowing up a few years ago off the first 2 installments of his A Love Letter to You mixtape series, he would go on to release a solid debut album LIFE’S A TRIP in 2018 & then a subpar sophomore effort ! last summer. This followed up in November with A Love Letter to You 4 but as Halloween approaches, Trippie is finally coming through with Pegasus.

The opener “Let It Out” is a mediocre duet with Myiah Lynnae about 2 partners expressing their feelings of loving one another over a spacious beat whereas the next song “Moonlight” talks about being a helping hand to his partner over a moody instrumental. The track “Love Scars 4” tries to convince his lover to trust him over a woozy beat while “The Nether” talks about how it’s impossible for him to get this woman off his mind over a cloudy instrumental.

The song “So Stressed” with Yung LB sees the 2 telling their significant others about why they’re blessings to them over a skeletal beat while the track “Excitement” with PARTYNEXTDOOR finds the 2 singing about how their lovers make them feel over an atmospheric instrumental. The song “Mood” tries to find out why his bitch is mad at him over a cavernous beat while the title track talks about where he’s at right now over a glamorous instrumental.

The song “Weeeeee” talks about being the big dog over a psychedelic beat while the track “Personal Favorite” with Rich the Kid sees the 2 talking about how their lovers deserve the throne over a generic instrumental. The song “V-12” talks about expensive cars over a piano-inflicted trap beat while the track “Spaceships” with Young Thug finds the 2 talking about being trapped in their own heads over a dystopian-sounding instrumental.

The song “Never Change” talks about staying true to himself over angelic beat while the track “Good Morning” talks about spoiling his girlfriend over a bland instrumental. The song “No Honorable Mention” with Lil Mosey & Quavo sees the 2 talking about their wealth over a comatose beat while “I Got You” is pretty much a Busta Rhymes joint as Trippie only handles the hook & the 2 get romantic over a calming acoustic instrumental from Wheezy.

The song “Too Fly” gets braggadocious over an airy beat & much like “I Got You”, the track “Red Beam” sees Trippie once again appearing solely on the hook as Sean Kingston spits about him going to places you can’t go to over a druggy instrumental. The song “Oomp’s Revenge, Pt. 2” talks about never living unemployed again over a vibrant beat while the track “Take 1” is essentially Trippie doing his best Future impersonation.

The song “Sleepy Hollow” compares himself to Ichigo Kurosaki over a sinister beat while the track “Kid That Didd” with Future & Doe Boy finds the trio talking about his crew pullin’ up in your city over a bass-heavy instrumental. The song “Don” is an ode to the champagne brand Don Pérignon over a minimal beat while the track “Hell Rain” with Lil Wayne finds the 2 talking about them fucking up over an instrumental with a Godly feel to it. The Swae Lee dominated “TR666” talks about his 3rd eye being open over a gorgeous Scott Storch beat & then the closer “Sun God” discusses the cons of being in a relationship over a drab instrumental.

Can’t really think of anything else to say about this album other that than, it’s just such a mess in comparison to everything he’s put out in the last. It’s way too bloated, mostly 1-dimensional, poorly produced, the features are just ok & Trippie’s painting himself in a corner with his style at this point.

Score: 1.5/5
