Trippie Redd’s new single, “I Got You,” features none other than Busta Rhymes, and it also draws from the legendary rapper’s catalog. The song is produced by Wheezy, and its chorus finds Trippie interpolating one of Busta’s classic hits with Mariah Carey: “I Know What You Want.”
Trippie’s “I Got You” video even pays tribute to Busta’s original, beginning with a meet-up skit in the backseat of a car. Soon after, Busta appears to drop references to Titanic and Boston Market:
Yeah, baby girl, you know you hit the target
Beautiful and sweeter than a box of Boston Markets
Put a stone on you like the diamond was once lost in the Arctic
She know you whipped the Bugatti in the way that you parked it
“I Know What You Want” stands as one of the biggest hits of Busta’s career. The 2003 song peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It served as a single for his sixth album, It Ain’t Safe No More, and eventually went Gold.
Trippie Redd was set to drop his new album, Pegasus, this year, but the status of the project is currently in flux following its leak last month. He released the deluxe edition of his 2019 album, A Love Letter To You 4, back in February.
