The hip-hop contemporary rap jam #notawrapper was created in 2020 before the global pandemic and has been called Trippy T aka ART A Reasonable Truth’s best song yet as it includes heavy bass, a catchy chorus and a play on words with lyrics about being both a rapper and a wrapper.
The music video just dropped today, which features over 60 people showing some of their own talents from breakdancing, stripping, spinning fire, plus a lot more fun surprises. Just make sure to blast the bass while listening.
The music video, takes it to a whole new level, featuring talents from Los Angeles to Cincinnati, OH and beyond and it actually features some talented rappers like Kevy G, Adam Glevicky and Anthony Catanzarite who show their support for Anthony “Rory” Tran’s latest single. A sexy maid, a dojo stick spinner, poi spinning, goths, grandma, a gift for yo mama and more are all included in this colorful compilation as Truth’s style is shown with a hot red Honda R-Type car.
Anthony T. Tran has been working in Hollywood a lot more this year which included projects to help with Willow, Dua Lipa, Christopher Mintz-Plasse from Superbad, and many more talents and commercial work.
With the surge of Covid-19 and the new Delta Variant virus, it has been hard to want to update or showcase all the hard work that’s been happening behind the scenes. Trippy Tran Films has a lot more projects coming up and hope that we will be able to share them sooner than later. Keep it locked in with all of our projects at the links below.
(2021) A Trippy Tran Films Production ART A Reasonable Truth — “(W)Rapper” (Official Music Video)
Music can be hit or miss nowadays, especially in mainstream media, but there is a lot going on in the underground side that most people wouldn’t even know where to look to find hidden gems and hits.
Well look no further, Centerpiece artist ART A Reasonable Truth has teamed up with 7Fifty7 and Ravyyyy (as well as the Rory Man’s other artist name: Trippy T aka Tripp T) to make a bass banging catchy, yet fun – and funny at times – banger called “(W)Rapper”.
The track started after ART (Anthony “Rory” Tran) helped Frankie Mir and 7Fifty7 on the music video “Highway75” as part cinematographer and co-producer on an all night shoot. See that video below.
So whether you’re not a rapper or a “wrapper” wrapping gifts to yo mama – turn up the bass, get ready to start rapping and singing along as the new single from The Recipe artist celebrates his 32nd Birthday on the red carpet.
Tran will be media for the Gala event at Universal Studios for the Academy Awards event today. Tickets are now $1,000 to attend. He will be taking photos and videos with several others and will be submitting over 200 photos for the Hollywood stars event.

Lyrics: What we gonna do – the original way? Why we getting country in this bitch?
Y’all gloating about what you can do alright Need to humble yourself and tell the truth alright Tell me what you can but what you can’t do What are you not gonna do? I’m ready!
I’m not a rapper / Not a wrap, not a rap, not a wrapper
The only thing I’ve wrapped was a Christmas present The only thing I wrapped was a condom The only thing I wrapped was my friend’s Honda The only thing I wrapped was a gift for yo mama I go Amber Rose got no top in the summer Stuck in L.A. traffic but my life is not a bummer I’ve been getting smarter but my watch is getting dumber But my watch is getting dumber Nanananana Yeayeayeayeayea!
Where will I go All stops on these hoes Making them blow Because I’m So official Watching them bow No stopping us now Wearing the crown While Dancing on clouds
Rocking every day like my name is Superbass Making my own rules every time I get up in the place In search of morality It’s a formality Staying true and free That’s why they come for me Your disability I cross the Seven seas Keep on sharing the peace That’s the way I wanna be
The only thing I’ve wrapped was principle photography The only thing I’ve wrapped was a – bar on this bitch.. Get it because yea.. I’m a rapper!
Hook – Repeats
Candy coated bars Tell me how bizarre Mission from afar In your speakers to the stars
Happy Birthday Anthony ‘Rory’ Tran aka ART A Reasonable Truth who just released his new music video, second single to Centerpiece called “The Recipe ft. Ayem”. Although the subject matter doesn’t really have to do with food per se, the video itself showcases lyrical undertones of one being such a “recipe”, one of the more parallel coorelations to the concept album as it showcases a look at our world with catatonic behavior. Featuring Ayem with a sick verse, we also celebrate Black History Month with our team.
In the video, ART states that a lot of medical issues happened to him while on this journey to the point of a sleep study. Scientists are shown taking samples of him and building “versions” of him to control as their own “recipes” and brainwashing them to adhere to technology.
The idea has similar relation to Anthony Tran’s latest short film QK-Hilltop (coming very soon) that deals with real-life government experiments in the 1950’s.
What do you think of the new hip-pop video and song for 2019? Here is also a behind the scenes look at filming it via the rory-man’s snapchat story.
Support local and independent artists and be the recipe yourself! ART says he plans on starting performance runs this year. For his next music video “Get Down With It!” we are looking for extras and dancers. Email AReasonableTruth@gmail.com with picture and why and how you want to be involved.
It’s around the holidays nearing a close to 2018 and ART A Reasonable Truth (Anthony “Rory” Tran) is planning his new music video, second single to Centerpiece called “The Recipe ft. Ayem”. Though the subject matter doesn’t really have to do with food per se, the video itself showcases the lyrical undertones of one being such a “recipe”, one of the more parallel coorelations to the concept album.
ART A Reasonable Truth in New Music Video “The Recipe ft. Ayem”
In the video, ART states that a lot of medical issues happened to him while on this journey to the point of a sleep study. Scientists are shown taking samples of him and building “versions” of him to control as their own “recipes” and brainwashing them to adhere to technology and their “plan”.
The idea has similar relation to Anthony Tran’s latest directed short film QK-Hilltop (coming very soon) that deals with real-life government experiments in the 1950’s including MKULTRA, mind control, cloning and more.
Directed by Tyler Mason of Fallen Light Films in Ohio, the video is hoping for an end of year/early 2019 release.

It’s about that time! Summer is in the air and the ‘Centerpiece’ has released another anthem, this time, showcasing beach and west coast vibes by the ocean that will take you away on a vacation. “SoCal Waves” originally premiered in February 2016 with the My Vacation In LA season 1 finale in a demo form.
ART A Reasonable Truth produced an album with Grammy board and multi-million dollar studio-taught mix and master Wendy Levin of D.M. Gremlin Studios with an instrumental by Billy Burton; the collaboration and oceanic sounds are dreamy and chillular.
After releasing 3 singles prior including “Centerpiece”, “Get Down With It!” and “Ready”, “SoCal Waves” is planned to be the first music video of a visual album, but unlike artists like Beyoncè and Todrick Hall who release it all at once, the “Trippy Tran Man” plans to release the videos out of order and at different times before all the pieces of the ‘Centerpiece’ concept is complete. Trippy.
Want to be in the upcoming music videos? Trippy Tran Films and team are looking for background, actors, dancers and more to be a part of this project. Copy/credit will be provided and there will be meals on set for those who are needed more than 5 hours. Email TrippyTranFilms@gmail.com subject: Centerpiece.
What are your favorite songs from the album and what songs are you excited to see as music videos? What do you think the story is? Comment below, share the waves and get ready for a brand new music video by Trippy T.
See ART in “Gotta Be Free” by Master T.C. and The Visitors.Their album Visitation Rights releases on July 4th.
Enjoy a throwback to the first music video by Tripp T “2012 (Unfreeze)/Shimmer of Longing” released on the expiration of the Mayan Calendar 12.21.12.
Happy New Year’s Eve everyone! The new club banger by ART is sure to make lovers of dance music go wild as we bring in 2K18 with “Get Down With It!” Put on your dancing shoes and get ready to get down with it!
The instrumental beat is produced by Sonanze and has “Centerpiece” singer ART on the track laying some dirty vocals chanting:
“Get down with an altered feeling/It comes and goes on/Get down with a “won’t-stop” feeling/I know I can lose control/Get down with a monster feeling/Get down and let it go/When we begin the chain/You gotta get down on the dance floor!”
“Get Down With It!” is a party anthem for those who like high energy dance tracks with smooth breakdowns and wild sounds that you can’t help but jump up and down to. I mean, at least my friends and I can’t stop listening. And we like “Centerpiece” but damn – this may be even better. It’s that good.
A Reasonable Truth AKA Anthony “Rory” Tran has worked with (and plans on working with more on the an already planned second album) musician Sonanze AKA Mikhail Sinenko on this EDM anthem who also created the music tracks to “Unfreeze (2012)” and “Shimmer Of Longing” amongst many others – unlike the recent release of “Centerpiece” who was made by beatmaker A-Rhyme also known as Aaron Byrd.
The new single just dropped – and it went right down your chimney. Happy holidays! With the current state of pop music, just like the film industry, there’s been a lot of hit and misses with overplayed reboots and lackluster content (and lyrics) that seems to cater to the American dollar rather than the beauty and craft of art with the real gems lying in the underground. A new surprise has arrived: introducing ART.

Here at Trippy Tran Films, we believe in inspiring, motivating and making positive moves in mainstream media. We are pleased to present the new single from singer, rapper, lyricist, multi-genre artist Anthony Rory Tran who goes by the name of ART – which also stands for A Reasonable Truth, and has originally released music under the pseudonym Trippy T.
Fans of pop, hip-hop, cruising-style, electronic infused music will be pleased to know a song called “Centerpiece” is a life-jam calling everyone a centerpiece with lyrics: “Look now you’re the centerpiece/Saying everybody get like me”.
ART’s debut album CENTERPIECE is set for an early 2018 release and will have 11 original songs.
The music industry is mentioned in verse 2: “Octacables wrapped around me like a label/When it takes hold own the heart and let go” stating that octopus tentacles acting as cables can hold the ‘centerpiece’ tight and you may even go to the degree of interpreting those lyrics as people being constricted by the idea of money rather than the craft.
ART’s debut album of the same name is set to drop early 2018 with more singles to be released. What are your thoughts on “Centerpiece” as a new hit song? ART will also be featured on the new Master T.C. and the Visitors “Gotta Be Free” video set to drop in January.Hear that song here.

There is no doubt that Derrick Barry looks just like Britney Spears or that comedic parody impersonator Titney Spears raises plenty of glances from the size of her “ladies”. Both fabulous in their own way, we compare and contrast how “Britney” these gals are.
Last week, we listed 10 skits that have tummy tickling moments and we even listed all related videos including the future soon-to-be PocaHeyHey official, the reincarnate of Pocahontas in today’s society, plus character parodies like Titney Spears, Selena Stop!mez, Marie AntoiNOT!, the MSI “Prom” music video, the hilarious radio spot “Leatherware” and more. Well, you didn’t think it would stop there, did you!? Trippy Tran and Trippy Tran Films have been making professional videos and zany comedy skits since 2007 (and owner/operator Anthony Rory Tran has been writing since he was an itty bitty wittle kid.) Here’s 10 more skits! And look! You don’t have to worry about annoying ads all over the page (besides a select few of our own which we implore you to check up on it.) Also, you don’t have to click a Next page button constantly just to finish the article! It’s all listed below!
#1 Do The Apple Turnover! (Churry Churry)
In 2011, Arby’s was having a Cast Calling contest and Anthony “Rory” Tran aka artist Trippy T was on it. In less than a week, he called his local Arby’s (one with the original cowboy hat – those come few, far and between nowadays!) a flash mob of diverse folks, a killer food rap, a hot beat from Greg Durham aka Godtchie (who collaborated with Tran on the song “Mind ArC” for the COEXIST movie soundtrack – see our movies), the mixing style of Michail Sinenko aka Sonanze and the writing collaboration with Hapless aka J.B. Luckett of Eazy World Entertainment (see his debut music video) who also stars in the video as Tran’s hype man.
The video has gained the most fans and views for on a video for the Trippy Tran Films channel up until recently, now being the 2nd highest video with over 4 thousand views on the Trippy Tran Films channel with the highest count of views being our #2 video… (see below)
#2 SIPPY BEARS Juice Bar, Smoothies & Wheat Grass Lemonade
Chef Dan immediately called Anthony Tran about filming commercials for his new business Panda Chefs. He hired Tran to film and edit his commercials from Sushi Bears to Bolly Bears (Indian Cuisine) to the Panda Chefs Shark Tank audition tape sent to ABC as he was being considered, Classy Beading (jewelry making) to Sippy Bears at Findlay Market in downtown Cincinnati, OH. Together, they made promos and tutorial videos to all the delicious exotic ethnic options including the emerging hype of wheatgrass being a new health trend. For some odd reason (that our market research hasn’t full grasped) the Sippy Bears is the most viewed promo and is officially now the most viewed video on the Trippy Tran Films channel at over 6 thousand views! Why do you think that is? Comment and see all the promos below!
Panda Chefs – ABC’s Shark Tank Audition (Cooking Kits Promo) (coming soon)
Basil Bears (Thai Food)- (Coming soon!)
Tran also shot Chef Dan’s sister’s wedding and made a music video to Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin'” for her wedding video out of the footage and choreography they performed at that wedding. Click the link and keep following your dreams people!
Music by Sonanze.

#3 CONAN! Please Blow Up My Car
In 2010, Conan O’Brien had a contest for everyone in the US to submit their crappiest vehicle video and submit it to NBC for the Conan O’Brien Show. The winner was in the same town the studio was in, Los Angeles, CA where Tran now resides. Too bad his car wasn’t in LA so they could blow it up on site. We might have won!
The selection description on their site mentions:
Working in conjunction with the writers of “The Tonight Show with Conan O’brien” we created this fun promo for the launch of the Lexus HS. From over 3,000 video submissions, Conan picked a winner of the worst car in America who would win the Lexus HS in exchange for his car being blown to bits.
Actor Bobby Long approached Tran about doing a Dorito’s contest entry for the Super Bowl. Always game to collaborate, Tran united a team of people to create a video, and the resources included MMA fighter Chad Hinton and his own daughter in the video! Dorito’s bags spinning around his head by graphic/VFX artist Dan Hollandsworth made this video extremely memorable and a tummy tickler for sure, even if it didn’t win the contest (like most our vids – sad face !) There’s competition out there for sure, but isn’t it really about creating and collaborating to make unique and original videos? MMA fighter Chad Hinton thinks so!
See director/writer Anthony Tran’s “COEXIST” starring Bobby Long – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N8PqUbrTaCw coming soon to The Official Trippy Tran Films Shorts Collection 2008-2015. Read about the epic DVD release here. Future articles about the double-disc set coming soon.
Bobby Long also hired Tran for a Russian wedding for the Abduganiev’s. Promo video coming soon!
(Here’s hoping everyone’s still married!)
#5 Ke$ha at LA Pride 2015
Well Ke$ha made a comeback that Saturday night at LA Pride this past year. Tran attended the aftermath and went to the parade; but when we stepped through the gates, there was a lot of trash. Needless to say, it made a funny Kesha’s “glitter trash” parody.
In 2007, Tran started at Brown Mackie College and graduated with an Associate’s of Applied Science degree in Audio/Video technology in 2009. The first storyboard project had to be done right, Tran said to himself – and even though the “Object of the Game” assignment was to film an angle, cut the camera and repeat to complete the project, Tran took it upon himself to do a small amount of editing so he could “disappear” from the pimp cups, which when premiered in front of his class, wowed the crowd.
See Tran’s “Drug Deal” featuring Izal Mane and Rel for a DP assignment he lead after he was recovering from being sick for the end of the month for a lighting class project – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oB6gQ0zNpo8 and the next video features them as well!
#7 “Get Looney On ‘Em!”
Whilst Tran attended Brown Mackie, they helped film videos for a whole bunch of local Cincinnati artists including big time Showtime music vid (we shot the Goonies video which never was released) as well as Izal Mane and Rel’s old group Cincinnati’s Most Wanted. The students all got to help production, but each student was given the chance to do their own edit for a grade. Above is Tran’s edit. Honestly, Tran got a C+, but looking back at it now, if we had more time, we would perfect the video, but shoot, this is a Looney Tunes anthem for real! How hot is their take on being “looney”. Fresh. Dope. Real. Why are we so underground homies?! Ha.
Once again, another school project makes its way on our list. This hilarious video removed the original commercial’s audio for an assignment to redub the entire commercial. Thinking outside the box, Tran not only wanted to redo all the sound effects, music and voice overs, but instead, rematch it with a lip sync parody vid having Howie from Radio Shack say “can you transfer this cute white pussy to all my friends and family”. Yeah. We went there. See for yourself how well we matched lips and recreated the audio of a popular commercial. Featuring the voice announcer of Jeff Winkelman of Who Productions, Anthony’s main instructor at Brown Mackie College-Cincinnati.
On July 16, 2015, Tran worked did more for sports as a P.A. on Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Sports awards post party event! Due to a knee injury from a serving job in SoCal, he wasn’t able to do as much as he wanted, but being at UCLA helping the team at the Lost Child Meet-Up Point and Lost and Found. With film makers Kimbra McCaul and Dustin Young.
#9 A Suphero Birthday Party!
Filming our debut feature Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown came with connecting with our cast and crew, and in this case, actress Tia Casey and members of the rock band The Upset Victory. Together, we celebrated Tia’s birthday wearing superhero costumes made from table cloths and styrofoam masks.
Unfortunately, later in the evening, Tran was jumped by two guys near the band mates car. Tran said “what’s up” to them and the next thing you know, was beaten to the temple with pounding fists for over a minute until his friends left the bar and realized what was going on. It was like a black out. The attack occurred at Bellevue Vets in which there were security cameras and was by a main street off of the Newport exit, but the officer let the attacker go right in front of everyone and didn’t do anything for the ruthless attack. Luckily, only the good memories were captured above and one might call The Upset Victory including the guitarist’s heroic brother for being a superhero at the end of the night.
#10 ACTV Special featuring German Commercial parody, The Dumbest Horror Flick Ever Behind The Scenes, Music Videos and more!
Let’s time travel back to when Tran was a senior in high school and was still (and still is) very passionate about film work. He took 2 years of German and was finishing some scenes for The Dumbest Horror Flick Ever after making the MSI “Prom” cover video before and after his Junior Prom and was asked to submit to public broadcasting featuring his works. This special is about 25 minutes and includes a lot of Tran’s earlier work.
A few years later, ACTV in Anderson Township, banned Anthony Tran from airing videos on their public broadcasting saying our work was “too commercial”. When Tran released “COEXIST” after 10pm on public broadcasting, there were some concerns about the majority of elderly people residing and watching the program that the film was so horrific that it might give them a heart attack, said by the chairman. We don’t think our stuff is that explicit, but to each their own! Now Tran is in California and will be making a new special for Long Beach and LA residents to check out his work going along with The Official Trippy Tran Films Shorts Collection 2008-2015.

The idea has spawned multiple side videos including SunnyGayGay and a list of ideas we hope to bring to our channel in the near future!
Short and sweet. The middle is a tummy tickler for sure!
#10 “Prom” Mindless Self Indulgence (Cover Video feat. A.Ro Tran)
After creating The Dumbest Horror Flick Ever, cast and crew members were featured for their Junior Prom video filmed right before their actual prom! This made one of the most entertaining and hilarious videos that Tran did in high school. The video was so explicit with drinking, masturbation references and cussing that it practically got banned from his school.
