Trippie Redd and Lil Yachty are the latest duo to tear into “Who Run It.”
Unexpectedly, rap moguls Trippie Redd and Lil Yachty are hopping onto the bandwagon, becoming the newest pair to tackle the classic Three 6 Mafia’s song “Who Run It,” with their own spin, proving they are forces to be reckoned with.
The trend ignited after G-Herbo made an appearance on Dallas’ radio show K104FM last month, where he dropped a mean freestyle over the instrumental for the Three 6 Mafia track. After giving it a listen, the popular Ontario rapper Drake made a request that Herbo release the freestyle as an official mix-tape, which he did.
Blowing up in numbers, the audio for his freestyle surpassed five million views, which then sparked attention among other rappers in the hip-hop scene to follow in his footsteps.
Just the other night, A$AP Rocky shared his version via Instagram, followed by the fiery free verse’s by Redd and Yachty, who also teased a snippet of their remix shortly before unveiling the entire track.
In return, the boys got applause from DJ Paul himself who tweeted:

Aside from the praise, Lil Yachty is also linking up with Migos and Gucci Mane for a side project dubbed the Glacier Boyz, scheduled to drop April 13, the collaboration will also include the newly-released song “Solitaire.”
Keep up with music at Salute.
