Born and raised in Johnstown, Pennsylvania in 2001, Eem Triplin started his career as a producer, creating and selling beats online while still at Greater Johnstown High School and producing songs for artists like $NOT and T9ine, including the former's fan favorite tracks “BENZO” and “Revenge.” Eem’s success as a producer fueled his desire to become a rapper in his own right in 2022. His career as an artist kicked into high gear when he shared “AWKWARD FREESTYLE,” a self-produced, personality-filled song that used elements of Tyler, The Creator’s 2013 song “Awkward.” The song quickly went viral, inspiring thousands of TikTok creations, generating millions of streams on all platforms, and eventually reaching the ears of Tyler himself, who gave the song his enthusiastic co-sign. Eem released multiple follow up hits in 2022, which caught the attention of superstars, Drake, Steve Lacy and Lil Yachty, who all publicly applauded Eem for his sound and recent success.
In 2023, Eem Triplin released his debut EP, STILL PRETTY, on July 9th – listen here. Over the project’s seven tracks, each produced by Eem, along with DJ Dahi (Kendrick Lamar, Vince Staples) and co-producer Charlie Myles, Eem showcases his gentle melodic delivery and soulful, hard-hitting production. He directly dialogues with the listener and offers updates on his life as a rising rap star, blending luxury-living flexes with relatable tales of romance. Highlights include the upbeat opener "FEEL ABOUT ME," a vulnerable break-up song called "WASTED TIMES," and the seductive single “TELL ME IM RIGHT."
