Trippie Redd is not having it neither and got rid of his $2.250 pair of Adidas Yeezy Boost 750 “Light Brown”. In the video, Trippie and Kodie shane can be seen chillin on the balcony of what seems to be the 1400 rapper’s appartment, when he suddenly decided to throw the pair of shoes of the balcony.
