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.
