Trippie Redd announces his 2023 Take Me Away Tour across North America this fall in support of his upcoming album A Love Letter To You 5. Special guest LUCKI will join across all dates on the tour, along with D.Savage, Ekkstacy, and K Sauve. Jean Dawson will also join on select dates.
The news of the tour comes on the heels of Trippie’s latest single, “Took My Breath Away,” featuring Skye Morales, which was released June 16, 2023 via 10K Projects. The single follows the release of his Mansion Musik mixtape, which dropped earlier this year featuring Travis Scott, Future, Chief Keef and JuiceWRLD debuting at #1 on Billboard’s Rap Albums Chart and #2 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart. It also debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart marking Trippie’s seventh consecutive Top 5 debut on the list. Additionally, the project saw 7 songs debut on the US Spotify Chart bringing Trippie’s total career entries to 143 songs – the 6th most of any artist.
LUCKI is still enjoying the success of his most recent album, FLAWLESS LIKE ME, which dropped in late 2022 with features from Future and Babyface Ray. To support the album’s release, LUCKI embarked on a sold out 25-date tour that crossed the country in early 2023, and included sold out shows in London and Canada.
One of the most versatile and creatively daring artists in hip-hop today, Trippie Redd makes music that’s both wildly experimental and massively appealing. Since delivering his debut mixtape A Love Letter to You in 2017, the multi-platinum-selling, chart-topping rapper, singer/songwriter has continually defied genre boundaries, embedding his melodic take on rap with frenetic elements of rock-and-roll and heavy metal. And with his penetrating lyrics and nuanced but hard-hitting vocal performance, the 23-year-old Ohio native matches that endless ingenuity with a powerfully raw emotional impact.
Racking up over 30 billion streams to date and having seven consecutive projects land in the Top 5 of the Billboard 200 Albums Chart, Trippie Redd has evolved from budding Soundcloud rapper to a global powerhouse. Not only has he collaborated with some of today’s biggest names in music including Drake, Future, Travis Scott, XXXTENTACION, Juice WRLD, Travis Barker, Illenium, Marshmello and more, but he also made his acting debut during an episode of Lil Dicky’s critically acclaimed DAVE followed by an appearance on Machine Gun Kelly’s Good Mourning. His 2021 album, Trip At Knight featuring single “Miss The Rage” featuring Playboi Carti, brought a #1 debut on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and went on to amass over 3 billion streams, while his Mansion Musik mixtape followed, earlier this year, landing a #1 debut on the same chart. Named one of the ‘Top 50 Most Streamed Rappers on Spotify,’ Trippie Redd plans to continue to break boundaries and cement his status as one of the best in the game.
LUCKI separated himself from the pack years ago. He built a devoted fan following by creating songs packed with vulnerability and experience. His lyrics proved to be far more personal than preachy. In 2022, the same year the 26-year-old rapper released his debut album, FLAWLESS LIKE ME, the Chicago native achieved over 25,000 sales first week and reached #12 on the charts.
LUCKI showed growth, maturity, and perspective—without losing the soul that made him relatable. “Super Urus” and “New Drank” are recent massive reminders, with over 50 million streams each, that a versatile artist who had a powerful introduction during the mid-2010s is still on the ascent.
LC Camel, Jr. hails from Chicago’s storied West Side. Now a father, LUCKI has credited his parents for their dedication. In 2013, roughly a year into recording, the budding artist self-released Alternative Trap inspired by an array of sounds. The free mixtape arrived amid a Chicago Rap Renaissance that thoughtful and innovative young people helmed. At just 17, the rapper, then known as Lucki Eck$, captured the angst and confusion of his peer group with a streak for the wild side. The Chicago Reader credited him as the city’s “best conscious rapper” not long after. He became a sought-out collaborator across styles, working with FKA Twigs, Danny Brown, Future, Playboi Carti, and Earl Sweatshirt. The project caught on, earning critical acclaim and putting LUCKI on the international map. In the years that followed, LUCKI abbreviated his moniker to match his given name. He also launched the Freewave EP series, a display of quantity without compromising quality. Despite the expanding catalog, in mid-2016, 20-year-old LUCKI stepped out of the spotlight for nearly a year to be a proper father and self-care. In lyrics and interviews, the artist has been transparent about bouts with depression, prescription drug addiction, and a social disconnect.
By 2017, LUCKI returned to form, releasing a slew of projects. “Sunset” reached a new peak, streaming over 40 million times to date, with an enchanting beat and confessional lyrics. In 2019, Lucki’s Days B4 III built on that momentum, powered by anthems like “4 The Betta” and “Randomly.” Raps about relationships, hopelessness, and isolation resonated alongside messages from an independent artist who was clearly thriving on his own terms.
In 2022, LUCKI upped the ante. Future and EMPIRE label-mate Babyface Ray guest on the FLAWLESS LIKE ME album that finds the 26-year-old more comfortable with himself but still admittedly growing. A leading voice in Rap, LUCKI commands the 24-track album, which he considers his debut. To support the album, which nearly entered the Top 10, LUCKI performed sold-out concerts in London and Canada, as well as a sold out 25 city tour in the beginning of 2023. As he prepares to celebrate a decade of originality, authenticity, and consistent growth, LUCKI has cemented an incredible legacy, even if he is still writing it in real-time.
