To promote the upcoming release of Happy Belated, Trap Beckham just dropped a brand-new twerk-a-licious video for the single “Classy N Ratchet,” which was directed by Motion Minds. Earlier today, Hype Off Life premiered the new video (watch here) and said, “Laying its foundation on a popular classical music sample, the “Birthday B*tch” artist rips the track with fun flows of modern day ladies in the streets, but freaks in the sheets, i.e. “Classy N Rachet”women.”
For her 52nd birthday, famed actress Halle Berry had a cake fight with two of her best friends. The video on her Instagram sees her excited, celebrating with Trap Beckham‘s hit single “Birthday Bitch.” She isn’t the first celebrity to celebrate their born day with Beckham’s biggest song: names like LeBron James, Kylie Jenner, actress/singer Zendaya, and comedian Leslie Jones have also spent their birthday dancing to the track. Since the release of his 2016 single, Beckham has been on a roll. He dropped another single that garnered serious attention in “Lil Booties Matter,” and released his 8-song debut EP titled Life Is Lit. Most recently, he shared Evil Emoji, a mixtape that has already helped to legitimatize his growing buzz. Evil Emoji is out now on MyMixtapez and SoundCloud.
Premiered by Hip Hop Weekly, Trap Beckham is back with visuals for his new track “Fake.” Best known for his bass-filled, club-oriented bangers like “Birthday Bitch” and “Lil Booties Matter,” he shows off his sincerity and artistry on “Fake.” This is undeniably one of his most personal and honest songs to date. The record sees him utilize a light autotune to discuss his rise to success and all of the struggles that come along with it. The Motion Minds-directed music video is fittingly simple, but complements the song well; Trap Beckham is featured both on a rooftop and in front of a mic singing to the viewer. “Fake” shows a new, more authentic side to Trap Beckham that is sure to draw fans in.
Jacksonville native Trap Beckham has made a lane for himself with his unique, energetic approach to dancefloor hits.

Reminiscent of the Miami bass movement, Trap Beckham‘s new video, “Work It For Me,” is certainly putting a new spin on the subgenre. Directed by Jon J Visuals& Dre Films, the seductive visual complete with strippers & raining cash premiered exclusively on HotNewHipHop yesterday afternoon. About the DJ Luke Nasty-assisted release, HotNewHipHop declared, “the record itself is a smash but with the release of the video, it should definitely make people pay more attention to what he’s up to.“
