XXL Freshman Trippie Redd has explained why he choose to skip out on the XXL Freshman Cypher.
"So fuck all that shit. I wasn't left off the cypher or none of that shit. I just didn't want to do it. I chose not to do it because I knew the beat was going to be trash,” he said. “Nothing against XXL or them people, but I just didn’t want to be a part of that. I wanted to do my freestyle, you feel me? That’s all I cared about, that’s all I wanted to do was show y’all what I can do.”
Trippie then paused and addressed someone who didn't like that as an excuse.
"How's that a stupid excuse?" Trippie then asked. "Because I didn't want to get in front of a camera with a bunch of other niggas that I don't feel is like me at all and rap over a little sorry ass beat?"
What do you think about Trippie's excuse? You can listen to it below.
