Multi-platinum selling rapper Trippie Redd, who began his career as one of the first signings to 10K Projects, one of the most successful independent record labels in the world, has signed a long-term deal that will keep him at the label for years to come.
Since his groundbreaking 2017 debut album, A Love Letter to You, Trippie Redd has continually defied genre boundaries, embedding his melodic take on rap with frenetic elements of rock-and-roll and heavy metal. In just five years, the artist has set a new standard for prolificness, releasing 4 studio albums, 6 mixtapes, 8 EPs and almost 3 dozen singles, amassing 15 Platinum and 8 Gold certifications in the process.
“We launched 10K Projects as a label where artists have complete creative freedom and the support to realize their vision,” said the label’s founder and CEO, Elliot Grainge. “Trippie Redd has thrived under these conditions, releasing a lifetime’s worth of music in just five short years and becoming a singular voice in contemporary music. I know I speak for everyone at the label when I say I am so honored and humbled to be able to continue our extraordinary partnership with Trippie for years to come.”
Trippie Redd commented, “Elliot signed me when I was 16. From the start he’s always pushed me to do everything on my own terms which is the most important thing to me. I’m grateful to have had him as a partner for this long and excited to make more hits with 10K and keep growing together.”
Current 10K Projects Co-Presidents Zach Friedman and Tony Talamo commented, “Trippie Redd is that very rare artist who is always pushing the boundaries of music genres, always surprising, always challenging. The fact that his unique approach has also been highly successful on a commercial level, just highlights what an exceptionally rare creative force he is.”
Peter Jideonwo, Trippie Redd’s manager, on the signing; “We’re grateful to continue to make history with Elliot and the 10K team, Zach, Tony, Molly, Sam & Hannah, through Trippie’s upcoming releases. Super proud of everything we’ve accomplished so far and I can’t wait for the unbelievable years to come.”
