Earlier this month, Buddy announced via Twitter that his debut album, Harlan & Alondra, would be out on July 20. To kick off this week, the Compton native teams up with rising R&B star Khalid for the psychedelic new single “Trippin’.” The intoxicating tune serves as Buddy’s fourth single in four months and is the latest cut from his forthcoming album.
The 24-year-old MC drowns in his drug-laced raps throughout the opening verse. “Take one shot then evolve/ Put the tab on your tongue let it dissolve/ And you got something to share you can get involved/ Listen to Grateful Dead and I’m tripping balls,” he rhymes.
“Trippin'” follows up a slew of successful previously released singles from Buddy, including “Trouble on Central,” the Ty Dolla $ign-assisted “Hey Up There” and “Black” featuring A$AP Ferg. Catch the RCA artist on the remaining dates of the Mad Man tour running throughout August alongside Ferg as well.
