Lashawn Smith (born August 30, 1983) is an American multi-talented hip hop artist known as Tripsup is set to be the next big thing in the rap game. Tripsup has seen and been through a lot and has a lot to say. And because he has lived his life between Hartford, CT and Tallahassee, FL he has developed a style that combines the east coast swagger with the dirty south flow.
Those very different hip hop communities influenced Trips style. Not just your average rapper, Trip mastered both styles so well that he can give you either as if you are hearing different people. What makes him a triple threat is his unique lyrical presence and ability to change up his sound on every track. When he performs, look out, because he gives a much needed dose of entertainer to the hip hop game that is better heard than described.
Tripsup showcases his unique brand of hip hop that is sure to make him stand out. Featuring production from hit maker Dominic "Domwan" Durham (Joe Budden, Mos Def) and production genius Kilo Kidd. Trip has been given a sound that will have the club goers dancing for years to come. Having been compared to such artists as Outkast, Ludachris, and Busta Rhymes the bar has been set high for Trip, and he is more than ready to meet the challenge. You can expect to hear big things from Tripsup.
