With his self-effacing charm and knack for going viral, Eem Triplin is one of rap’s hottest rising stars. Following a string of successful singles, Eem prepares for STILL PRETTY, his next EP. The upcoming EP is the latest evolution of Eem’s self-produced sounds, couching his irreverent humor and wistful reflections in immersive soundscapes. Rhyming in a gently melodic rasp, Eem weaves luxury-living flexes into his relatable tales of romance–he’s racking up millions of streams and performing sold out dates, but he still suffers from the same struggles that any 22-year-old faces. Eem’s first new EP since releasing his breakout “AWKWARD FREESTYLE” in 2022, STILL PRETTY arrives on July 9th.
The upcoming STILL PRETTY is home to the recent singles “WALKED IN” and “TELL ME IM RIGHT.” Originally released in January, “WALKED IN” is a confrontational, bass-heavy anthem, as Eem spits cold hard facts in a clipped cadence. The Johnstown City, PA native recently shared the video for “WALKED IN,” which shows behind the scenes footage from Eem’s time on tour with LUCKI earlier this year. Filmed in the scenic California countryside, Patterson, CA to be precise, the video for “TELL ME IM RIGHT” caused a stir, racking up thousands of retweets and featuring a sneak peak at a preview of a new song from STILL PRETTY.
The upcoming STILL PRETTY EP is the next step on Eem’s inevitable journey to stardom, fueled by a mixture of strong music and a knack for going viral. In 2022, Eem’s self-produced breakthrough hit “AWKWARD FREESTYLE“–sampling and co-signed by Tyler, The Creator–generated over 55 million streams across platforms, and fans intrigued by the song quickly found that Eem had a full catalog of similarly vibey highlights to choose from, including singles like “Louie V” (27+ million streams) and “JUST FRIENDS?” (34+ million streams since its early September release).
Eem has established himself as a standout live performer, killing his slots at festivals and as direct support for LUCKI’s sold out “Flawless Like Me: The Made Martian Tour.” Last Fall, Eem made his first festival performance at Rolling Loud New York, performing in front of a sparse crowd but making sure that the folks in the crowd would remember him forever (even if they forgot their own names in the process). This month, Eem made another Rolling Loud performance that illustrated how much he’s grown. He performed on the main stage at Rolling Loud California, drawing a much bigger crowd for his second performance at the hip-hop festival. Eem recently finished his tour with his good friend $NOT as a supporting performer on the “Get Busy Or Die Tour,” performed at Lyrical Lemonade Summer Smash over the weekend, and continues his streak of performances with his first European shows this July at festivals Rolling Loud Portugal, Rolling Loud Germany, Clout Festival, and Splash! Festival. Eem makes his debut at Rolling Loud Miami this July at Hard Rock Stadium, and continues his run this summer with a performance at Made In America.
With millions of streams on his catalog per week, the 22-year-old Eem Triplin’s potential is sky high. Stay tuned for more information about the STILL PRETTY EP.

Born and raised in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, a community of roughly 18,000 located near Pittsburgh, Eem started his career as a producer, creating and selling beats online, producing songs for artists like $NOT and T9ine, including the latter’s fan favorite tracks “BENZO” and “Revenge.” Eem’s success as a producer fueled his desire to become an artist in his own right. 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.
Since then, Eem scored follow-up hits like “JUST FRIENDS?” and “LOUIE V,” generated multiple viral moments at Rolling Loud Festival, and drew the attention of the Johnstown newspaper, The Tribune-Democrat, who profiled the local hero and captured his community’s excitement about his success. With millions of streams on his catalog per week, the 21-year-old Eem Triplin has a shot to become one of his generation’s biggest stars.
