Last year Trippie Redd and Swae Lee released the cut "TR666," and since then Trippie has been using the term heavily. So it's not surprising that people have accused him of worshipping the devil, which he addressed on social media.
In short, the 18-year-old said that 666 has to do with science, as well as black pride and that everyone is confused.
"They be telling you 666 is the mark of the beast, explain it's a dark entity with wooly hair and all this other shit, that's black people," he explained. "Six protons, six neutrons, six electrons. Do your research ... Don't try to knock a black successful man and say I'm satanic or Illuminati. I be trolling. But this is not no troll, this is black power shit."
The rapper SahBabii also broke down his philosophy when people accused him of worshipping the devil. Rappers like Lil Uzi Vert and XXXTentacion have been accused of the same thing.
Why do you think there seems to be a fascination with 666 and upside down crosses with some of the newer rappers? You can see Trippe's video below.
