Trippie Redd surprised everyone early this week by announcing that a fellow artist named hnrzhunter will be releasing his newest mixtape, which is titled Hate Is Dead (or hα†ε ïš dεαd). It was followed by a mixtape featuring nine tracks and guest appearances from K Suave and Zello Ocho. The first track on the album, “Fire In My Heart,” immediately demonstrates why the Canton, Ohio performer holds his position as one of the best of his generation. The track delivers harmonies discussing women, violence, vices, and more over a production by Supah Mario and Loesoe:
Trippie Redd released his fourth studio album, Trip At Knight, in August, and it contained 18 songs as well as performances from Drake, SoFaygo, Playboi Carti, Lil Uzi Vert, Ski Mask The Slump God, XXXTentacion, Juice WRLD, Polo G, Lil Durk, Icewear Vezzo, Sada Baby, and Babyface Ray.
