Eem Triplin Continues Rapid Rise with Tough-Talking “WALKED IN”
Winning fans with his playful personality and self-produced soundscapes, Eem Triplin is one of rap music’s most promising rising stars.

Eem swims through the hazy atmosphere with his signature rasp, piecing together flexes into infectious earworms: “I went from rags to riches/B*tches you had, I had them b*tches/I’m the only n***** from my f*ckin’ city runnin’ up a milli on my business.” “Walked In” continues a heroic run of singles from the 21-year-old artist, most recently following “LET YOU KNOW,” a Pitchfork-praised collaboration with his close friend $NOT.
“Konse” is a nyanja word that means everywhere, its a praise song that highlights gratitude to God. The inspiration comes from a place of thanksgiving in moments when the Lord has delivered us from places, situations, and circumstances that seemed impossible to overcome.
Despite the fact that we often flee or hide from God’s companionship, Paul Payne837 reminds us to express deep gratitude and praise for God’s presence that moves with us everywhere we go on a daily basis. He is always pursuing our hearts, showing us the way forward in love, grace, and mercy.
