Eem Triplin To Host ‘STILL PRETTY’ Release Concert In Johnstown, PA On August 18th
The Rising Rapper Will Celebrate The Success of His Debut EP In His Hometown Alongside His Family & Friends
Rising star Eem Triplin has been racking up millions of streams and performing sold-out dates across the country this year, but, no matter how much he grows, he’ll always keep his hometown of Johnstown, PA close to his heart. To celebrate the release of his debut project STILL PRETTY EP, Eem is returning home to host a release concert and share his success with his community with his first-ever headlining show at the Peoples Natural Gas Park in partnership with Johnstown Area Heritage Association.
“Doing this show in Johnstown means a lot to me because there were never many opportunities for me as an artist growing up here,” said Triplin. “I’m excited to be able to put a spotlight on my hometown and provide a fun event for the local community that made me who I am today.”
The concert will take place on Friday, August 18 from 6-11pm at Peoples Natural Gas Park. The event is free and open to all ages.

Born and raised in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, 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 has released multiple follow-ups hits, including his debut EP STILL PRETTY. Over the project’s seven tracks, each produced by Eem, along with DJ Dahi (Kendrick Lamar, Vince Staples) and regular 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.”
