Admittedly, I had never heard of Amir Tripp before today. Yet, when his newest single, “Slide On Ya”, blessed my Twitter timeline earlier today, I was pulled in within seconds by charismatic, triumphant rhymes and a certain inimitable energy that has drawn me to click repeat over and again since my first listen. Add these elements up with two guest spots from Saba and Trapo, and you have something special on your hands. “Slide On Ya” is undoubtedly the kind of song to pull anyone out of a bad day, and thanks to stellar, luxurious production via Zay Rock, the radiation of positive energy coming out of this song surely separates it from the pack. With that being said, I suppose I learned my lesson for the day: don’t sleep on Amir Tripp. Since discovering “Slide On Ya”, I have started to sift through the Chicago native’s catalog and I must say there is some can’t-miss material there for the people to enjoy. But don’t take my word for it, listen to this victory lap of a single below and let us know what you think in the comments.
