(AllHipHop News) Recent projects by Chris Brown (Heartbreak on a Full Moon), Migos (Culture II), and Rae Sremmurd (SR3MM) have attempted to take advantage of the streaming era by delivering albums packed with over 20 songs. While the extra-long LPs have produced mixed results, the trend doesn't seem to be ending any time soon.
Up next is Ohio newcomer Trippie Redd. The 18-year-old rhymer celebrated collecting over 1 billion streams with an Instagram post, and the video included one of his supporters saying "one-third of the world seen my little brother."
An IG user questioned the math on 1 billion streams equating to 1/3 of the planet. Trippie responded by writing, “Because technically I have 2 billion and Im bouta to drop a 22-song album which will put me at 4 bill in total."
Redd released his A Love Letter to You mixtape in 2017. The set featured acts such as Lil Tracy, UnoTheActivist, Famous Dex, and Tekashi69. A Love Letter to You 2 arrived a few months later.
Since that time, Trippie Redd and 6ix9ine have been feuding on social media. The frenemies/labelmates quarreled over who was really responsible for Tekashi's success in the music business. 6ix9ine also called out Trippie for teaming with Tadoe for the "I Kill People" record after Cuban Doll accused Tadoe of assaulting her during their time as a couple.
