Trippie Redd and Lil Uzi Vert have brought their talent together for new single, ‘Holy Smokes’.

The track seemingly will appear on Redd’s upcoming new album, Trip At Knight. Although there still isn’t a release date for the record, the rapper has promised to keep the tracklist to himself until it gets 100,000 pre-saves on streaming services. It is believed the album will drop before his tour next month.

It does feel as though the pair have toned themselves down a notch to make the track have as much mainstream appeal as possible. However, the cartoonish production is stellar, and the beat is ridiculously catchy, with Trippie and Uzi delivering the watered-down goods on top of it.

In a recent interview with XXL, Redd discussed how Uzi inspired him during his early days. “Listening to Uzi’s shit back in 2015-16, that shit was different.”

Adding: “And [Playboi] Carti, at that time. They was on some other shit for the young niggas. They did some crazy shit for us. They really opened doors for us to do a lot of shit that we do.

“You know, the niggas from the SoundCloud era might not say it too much, but definitely, they some of the G.O.A.T.s from our era.”
