This is some ish, Trek Life is one of the hardest MC’s but talent get overlooked now days. But its cool cause what we called real hip hop its on the way back. Shout out to BeatsnCrates for the footage.
So Jasmin (TakingYouOver) & I went to Trek Life’s album listening party. The performance was very energetic. The whole West Cov was on board: J Bizness, Jansport J, Hawdwerk + Basicali, Tommy Blak, etc. We then interviewed the man himself and were able to admire Jansport J’s natural ability as a host. Trek Life goes in deep about his album, mad tour stories, Soulja Boy, how & why he got into the game, his relationship with producers Oddisse & J Biz, etc. Basically you get to spend ten minutes with the West Cov legend himself. COP HIS NEW ALBUM EVERYTHING CHANGED NOTHING that dropped yesterday. Don’t forget to check the rant above enthused by the “Biz rants on Twitter” – L.A Stereo T.V
The beat-tape also feat two full tracks, “Get In Touch,” feat Richard Wright, Belvi & J.Bizness and “So Supreme,” show how the blending of Oddisee’s beats back up Trek Life’s lyrical flow. Even though “Get In Touch” will not be on the full LP, it embraces the same theme as the album and is a good indication, along with “So Supreme” of the high quality of the music Trek Life and Oddisee have been making together.
Trek Life – Before Everything Changed mixtape mixed by Tommy Blak and hosted by J. Bizness. The mixtape features rare material and plenty of collabs with other indie artists. Something for us until he drops his album Everything Changed Nothing.
