The 1400 God gets a guest verse from La Flame on his Honorable C.N.O.T.E produced heater — a free.99 banger for fans to cap off the year as they await the release of Travis’ Astroworld.
SoundCloud may have been on the brink not too long ago, but there’s no denying that the sharing platform has allowed independent artistry to blossom before our eyes, in 2017 more than ever. With a somewhat colorful and inked-up renaissance presenting itself in the form of the modern day “SoundCloud rapper,” an archetype of artists have made headroom in a base genre of hip-hop that is truly now both popular music, and a modern day rock-and-roll of sorts.
And while the persona of SoundCloud rap has reached meme-level hilarity at times, one of the more successful cases of that aforementioned renaissance has been Canton, Ohio artist, Trippie Redd. With his first dominant hit “Love Scars” currently notching over 30 million plays on SoundCloud, and 21 million views on the track’s Pigeons & Planes premiered video, the 1400 representer has gone on to collaborate with other acts this year like DRAM, XXXTentacion, and Pierre Bourne.
This week, the eighteen year old decided to cap off his year with his biggest collaboration yet, releasing the track “Dark Knight Dummo” featuring Travis Scott.
If the cover art is any indication of how the Honorable C.N.O.T.E beat is received through your speakers, than it couldn’t be more accurate. A hellish organ loop runs through the background as a steady diet of bass and hi-hats join Trippie and Travis. La Flame takes careful note to name drop Bloody Mary, as well as his impending release of Astroworld, while Trippie kicks back to count his guap and admire his diamonds. Over C.N.O.T.E’s apocalyptic trap, Trippie’s hook is demented, all the while playful as he screams:
“Pull up in a drop top, she drop dead! / I pulled up in a drop top, she drop dead! / My diamonds dancing hopscotch, they holding hands / My diamonds dancing hopscotch, they holding hands”
“Dark Knight Dummo” has almost hit one-million plays already on Trippie’s SoundCloud. Listen to the track below, but also make sure you peep the ever-raucous crowd-reaction to the track at La Flame’s recent Houston homecoming. Based on fan response alone, it’s safe to say this track will be a heater that incites fans from all spaces within the Travis and Trippie spectrum.
