Battle for the Block’s just wrapped up, we saw mad love for local artists, ya’ll showed up! We’re excited to announce the winner of Battle for the Block….*DRUMROLL* Triip!!
Triiip (with 3 i’s) is a storyteller whose confidence and attention to detail create a standout lane for the Colorado based MC originally from Decatur, Illinois. Using music as a major form of expression is the ultimate formula for dynamic hip-hop, and Triiip exemplifies that inspiring energy. She raps about her life experiences with an authentic and relatable voice, all while crafting rhymes around production that speak to her true influences.
Artists like Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Nipsey Hussle, Jay-Z, Big Sean and Rapsody are some of Triiip’s influences as she hones and refines her craft as an MC. In addition to being a microphone slayer, she says it’s important to remain connected to the big picture of the world and using her voice to make a difference.
“With music I’m able to give back, help others achieve their own goals, help them feel better about themselves, and face my demons and encourage my listeners to do the same. My goal is to embrace all of my journey, face life despite any fear or pain, embrace love and all that it is, motivate and have faith while doing it,” she says.
Triiip is raw talent, undeniable hustle, and charisma. It’s the rush of crafting clever punchlines and original metaphors that keeps Triiip married to the rap game. She’s about bucking the norm, being brave, and creating music that gives a voice to the voiceless and drives all within ear shot to action.
