Trapo – “The Black Beverly Hills” EP
Madison, Wisconsin raised Trapo dropped his highly anticipated debut tape today (November 11, 2015). According to the artist’s SC, TBBH is “A Short Project About Black Prosperity.”
Trapo has a way of his own. He was raised in a town with many problems yet he’s found a way to rise above and create a sound that only he can maintain. The trap-blues singer has had some issues with alcohol too. I know how that goes… The new wave soul singer has a pain in his voice when he talks the trap talk. He’ll go from verbal assault to deep wailing in a way that makes him seem more sincere than most modern rappers.
Premiered by Pigeons & Planes, the TBBH album was originally set to feature both Allan Kingdom and Max Wonders. The emcee changed up the tracklist last minute, though. He’s mainly using leased beats on TBBH, which makes sense. Trapo needs certain elements in his music – a sound that most producers ain’t on yet. The young’n has a great ear for particular production and I’m sure many producers are cooking up for him at this very moment.
