Trippie Redd Says Hackers Demanded A Ransom Of $1 Million for His Music, Watch Video Below
While speaking with Apple Music 1’s Zane Lowe, the Ohio-born rapper, Trippie Redd, opened up about his recently released album Mansion Musik and his unfinished sound. Lowe specifically pointed to the mix of “Krzy Train,” a Travis Scott assisted track that drew mixed reactions.
Watch the interview below:
“Every time I read people talking about this album, and they’re complimentary, but they’re like, ‘What’s up with the mix on ‘Krzy Train?’ I don’t understand why it sounds like that,’”
The Rapper explains in the video.
He went on to admit that the sound was unintentional, because he didn’t have proper time to mix the record. The blamed all to the fact that he’s been targeted by Hackers.
“I ain’t really speak on it, but I’m going to speak on it. I was held for ransom on my project. They wanted me to pay them a million dollars because they had all my records. Every single last one. All the features. Some hackers, they had all my songs, so I had to rush the project out.”
He further stated that the final version of “Krzy Train” was mostly what Scott sent him, as his engineer never mixed it. Trippie admitted that he felt compelled to release the album as soon as possible, fearing the hackers would beat him to it.
“I had to run with it because if I didn’t, the whole project was going to release and it would’ve been a big thing. And this has been a big thing. They have been hacking and leaking shit like crazy, at least my last two, three albums. I don’t know how they do it. I was like, ‘If I don’t drop it now, then it’s going to be out there and they’re going to hear it regardless. They’re going to hear the bad mix regardless, so I’m going to put it out unmixed and see what they think.’ ”
He then went ahead to assure his fans that the album would be fixed and each track would be worked on.
“Yeah, the album did leak, actually, too. I work through anything. Got got the last laugh, you feel me? Like the devil going to throw so much at you, you can’t really let it bother you. Just take the bruises, you’ll heal eventually.”
