Following the post, Redd then shared a photo of his own copy of Prince's 1979 self-titled album with the back cover featuring His Royal Badness sitting naked on the back of a pegasus. Redd revealed that Prince is the inspiration behind his forthcoming album, saying, "3 days left .... so to tell u the truth prince was my true inspiration for the album 💜💜💜."
'Pegasus' was initially announced by Trippie Redd on his Instagram Stories back in March, and some fans began to lose heart that it would see the light of day. Later in June, Redd had also announced the album would get a deluxe version, and that it would be his long-awaited rock project that he teased in March 2019. So, for fans, all the hype over 'Pegasus' is real, although the rapper has kept fans up-to-date with info and teasers since his initial announcement.
'Pegasus' will mark Redd's third studio album and follows '!' (pronounced 'Exclamation Mark'). His upcoming record will feature appearances by numerous musical heavyweights including Myiah Lynnae, Yung LB, PartyNextDoor, Chris Brown, Rich the Kid, Young Thug, Future, Quavo, Lil Mosey, Busta Rhymes, Sean Kingston, Doe Boy, Lil Wayne, HoodyBaby and Swae Lee. Considering that the LP consists of a generous and massive 26 tracks, it is understandable that Redd is carefully building up anticipation and promotion before its momentous release.
