Eem Triplin doubles up on “Awkward Freestyle” success with new music video

Last month, Eem Triplin scored his first viral hit when he dropped his super catchy, ultra-chill self-produced “Awkward Freestyle” — following it up with a Declan Kyle-directed music video.

Produced by Eem himself, “Awkward Freestyle” is built around a sample of Tyler the Creator’s “Awkward” off his 2013 album, Wolf — which quickly gained wider attention after Tyler himself co-signed his Eem’s version under a post on our Instagram page.

The “Awkward” visual opens with an image of Eem tied up at gunpoint as an unknown assailant appears to pistol-whip him unconscious and drive off with his girl. From there, the bulk of the video is made up of mostly artfully arranged performance-based shots — so much so that viewers almost forget the original plot, which makes it doubly impactful when Eem finally gets his revenge at the conclusion.

“Awkward Freestyle” is by far Eem Triplin’s biggest song to date as an artist, who’s mostly known as a producer with over 115,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel dedicated mostly to type beats and risqué thumbnails. Behind the boards, he is best known for being a frequent collaborator of underground mainstay $NOT — producing multiple songs off his recent project, Ethereal as well as his 2020 hit “Revenge,” which received its own Cole Bennett-directed visual.

Given his obvious talent on both sides of the ball — not to mention deep ties to the underground — it’s very likely that this is only the start of something much bigger for Eem Triplin.

Sometimes you have to take the wok somewhere they told you it would never go to realize your true potential
