Machine Gun Kelly and Trippie Redd are no strangers to collaborating, but they’ve decided to flesh out their thoughts into a full-length joint project.

MGK revealed on Wednesday (March 23) that he’s teaming up with his fellow Ohio native for Genre:Sadboy. The collab effort is slated to arrive next Friday (March 29), which is already a busy release day with Beyoncé unleashing Cowboy Carter.

Kells and Trip took to Instagram when announcing the project with accompanying footage of the genre-blending duo dishing out emo-raps in the studio. “genre:sadboy 3/29 a project by us,” MGK wrote.

“People won’t say how they feel about you until you die,” Kelly bluntly states over guitar-laden production.

Diplo was hyped up to hear about MGK and Trippie connecting as he chimed in under the comment section: “This is going to [be] f—–g good!”

Genre:Sadboy will serve as the first project offering of 2024 for both Machine Gun Kelly and Redd. The pair released solo singles earlier in March. They’ve proven to be a formidable duo in the past while collaborating over the years on tracks like Hotel Diablo‘s “Candy,” Tickets to My Downfall‘s “All I Know” as well as “Red Sky” and “Pill Breaker.”

The Cleveland native’s last rap album came in 2019 with Hotel Diablo following MGK’s lucrative two-album rock pivot. 2022’s Mainstream Sellout debuted at No. 1 atop the Billboard 200 with 93,000 album units sold.

Trippie had a busy 2023 feeding fans’ appetites with essentially three different projects between Mansion Musik, A Love Letter to You 5 and the Saint Michael V2 deluxe.

Find the Genre:Sadboy announcement below. Look for the project next Friday (March 29).
