At long last, Trippie Redd‘s debut album,Life’s a Trip, has arrived. And as you should have been expected, it’s filled with melodious bangers. It’s also got several showcases of strong rhymes from Trippie, who’s known more for his genre-meshing than outright bars.

Over the course of 14 tracks, the 2018 XXL Freshman delivers plenty of quotable flexes and some lyrics that capture the pain of heartbreak. The strongest section of lyrics comes from “Missing My Idols,” one of the best tracks on the new LP. On the song, the Ohio artist distills a rush of anxiety as he delivers a stanza that feels like the walls closing in on him.

“I don’t know why I feel like nobody loves me/Or why they feel like my intention’s something ugly/Or why I feel like everyone needs something from me/Or why I feel like everyone just saying fuck me/Or why I feel like the opposition gon’ buss me/If I gave you my heart would you still love me/Lately baby I feel like nobody trust me,” he spits on the track.

Elsewhere on the album, Trippie keeps things more surface-level, flaunting his luxurious lifestyle while letting loose some classic rap bravado. “Steady causing havoc, yeah (yeah)/Bitch, I’m balling hard just like a Maverick (yeah)/Money stretch long, lil’ bitch, like elastic (yeah)Now that bitch steady calling me Mr. Fantastic, yeah, ayy/Know I keep a ratchet (alright),” he spits on his Travis Scott-assisted single “Dark Knight Dummo.”
