“Miss The Rage” by Trippie Redd and Playboi Carti
The chorus of “Miss the Rage” features primarily Trippie Redd, first of all, stating his focus on generating “guap”, i.e. cash. And considering that he’s whippin’ a Lamborghini truck and all, we know he’s not talking about the type achievable via your everyday job. That may be why, as alluded to in the first verse, he sometimes robs strangers who pass through the ‘hood on top of, we have to presume, other grimy acts.
The chorus concludes with Redd referring to a particular female who is a “b**ch like Mya” and “ho like Mimi”. It has been ascertained that he is perhaps referring to the singers who operate under those monikers, i.e. Mya and Mariah Carey.
And if such is actually the case, well, we’re not sure why he would go about labeling Mariah Carey, whose been married a couple of times, as a ho. But as far as Mya goes, she has long been considered one of the sexiest women in R&B, despite having been professionally active from even before Trippie Redd was born.
The aforementioned first verse, which Redd holds down, is highlighted by a bunch of gun talk, with the rapper even claiming that he and his homeys “shoot out helicopters” “like GTA”, i.e. the ultra-violent Grand Theft Auto videogame series.
In fact it reaches a certain point when reviewing albums largely based on such themes, like Trip at Knight, where analysts may come to the conclusion that rappers fantasize about perpetuating gun violence quite a lot.
But in the second verse, Playboy Carti takes the song in a different direction. He rather focuses on a particular ho(s) whom he has become infatuated with. And whereas he doesn’t use any words that are NSFW in and of themselves, the way the narrative plays out is definitely mature-minded and adult-oriented, as to be expected.
Final Thoughts on “Miss the Rage”
And with that said, putting this entire piece together we can say that Playboy Carti and Trippie Redd are about their money, b*tches and gang life. But as far as the title goes, what it actually alludes to is how Trippie Redd has ‘missed’ performing live – with “the rage” being a metaphor for revelous partying – due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, this is not a subject touched upon in the song.
