Trippie Redd States That Hackers Attempted To Extort Him For $1m For "Mansion Musik"

According to Trippie Redd, hackers tried to extort $1 million from him in exchange for his most recent album, Mansion Musik.

In an interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, the Ohio native talked about how hackers were “holding” his project “to ransom” and threatening to expose it if he didn’t pay them the money.

Trippie stated he “rushed” the album’s release to defy the hackers and avoid having to pay seven figures, which explains some of the mixing difficulties on the finished product, rather than giving in to their demands.

“I was held for ransom with my project,” he explained. “They wanted me to pay them $1 million ’cause they had all my records. Every single last one, all the features. They had all my songs so I had to rush the project out.

“On top of that, the Travis [Scott] song, I had it, but I didn’t have the session. So that’s what Travis sent to me. I didn’t mix it — my engineer didn’t mix it. I had to run with it because if I didn’t, the whole project was gonna release and it would’ve been a big thing.”

He added: “I was like, ‘If I don’t drop it now, then it’s gonna be out there and they’re gonna hear it regardless and they’re gonna hear the bad mix regardless. I’ma put it out unmixed and see what they think.’”

The 23-year-old claimed that he intended to post Mansion Musik again to streaming providers with a fresh mix.
