ASMR Takes The World—And Now Hip-Hop By Storm?
ASMR is a surprising trend that has become a part of an everyday routine for some. Lately celebrities like Cardi B. (who says she watches ASMR daily), have been giving the viral trend a try. Now, other hip-hop artist like Trippie Redd, Bhad Bhabie, Famous Dex, MadeinTYO, Father, and Too Short are giving it a shot too.
If you’ve been living under a rock and you still don’t know what ASMR is, it stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, here how Urban Dictionary defines it:
Basically the videos can be anything from eating (the most popular), playing with random objects and toys or just simply whispering into a mic; all with the goal of sending a little chill down your spine.

Now Wav Media has launched the series,”Dreamscapes ASMR”, their own brand of euphoria-inducing videos that combine different vibey production sets with some familiar faces—or should we say voices. Their upcoming episodes are set to feature other hip-hop artists like Bhad Bhabie, Famous Dex, MadeinTYO, Father, and Too Short. The first episode is titled “Sweet Nightmares” and stars Trippie Redd. It might be more hilarious than sleep inducing though. The rapper can be seen holding a blunt while playing with wind-up toys, slime, and some fiber optic lights; all a part of the dreamy theme. The short five minute video is still pretty entertaining though and worth the watch. Check it out:
