About Rich Ennis “Trippy Trip”
Richard Ennis, AKA Trippy Trip, is a rapper from South Jersey. He was born in
Cape May Courthouse, but primarily raised in the small Island town of Wildwood
NJ. Richard started his passion at just age 11 writing simple raps as a way of
venting his frustrations. At that age he used his music as retaliation and
stress relief from heavy bullying he received in middle school. By the time he
was 15 Rich realized that his talent was way more than a hobby and decided to
take it more serious. From age 15 to 18 Rich began releasing karaoke and cheaply
recorded mix tape CDs to his friends. After high school he attended Rowan
University and in his freshman year joined the club Lyrical Alliance which
helped him really improve his song writing and performance skills. After a few
more minor mix tapes that were recorded by himself and in dorm rooms Rich
realized he had to make a change.
In 2013 through a friend and fellow artist Rich Ennis met Tommy Capuano of
Resilient Studios and recorded his first official full length Mix tape, Music
You Can Nod To. This new project helped Rich get the attention of his peers and
many other artists in the Philadelphia and Jersey regions. After doing live
shows and releasing a music video Rich then released his second project
Translucent in October of 2016. From this project Rich has received even more
acclaim and has been on radio shows and more. His hit single Memory Lane has
over 1500 listens on Sound cloud and its music video has over 500 views. Now
Rich is working on an album and pushing Translucent any way he can. Rich is a
humble rapper and considers his music to be conscious hip hop. He writes to
inspire others and because he loves the culture of hip hop immensely. Because of
the highly drug and crime influenced mainstream media Rich strongly advocates
for a drug free and positive life. Rich graduated from Rowan University in 2015
with a BA in Psychology.
Rich Ennis’ motto in life is that there is no such thing as failure. Every
choice or move in life is either a success or a stepping stone to success.
