AUSTIN, TX – Trae Mitchell – AKA Trae Boy the Prime Minister – never thought he’d have a career in music. In fact, it wasn’t until his best friend introduced him to the music-making side of life in 2000 that he even started exploring with his natural talent as a musician.“Back in the day we would freestyle in the high school lunch room or in the hallways,” he said. “Me and my friend grew up together in neighborhoods located in north Dallas, and it seemed like everyone in those neighborhoods were making music and spreading word around the city.”

For the most part their music was just something fun to do together. But when that friend was killed while serving time in a penitentiary, Trae Boy made a commitment to pursue music with a passion and live up to the expectations set by his late friend. Today – 16 years later – Trae Boy continues to pursue music with a passion. His most recent single, “Whole Lotta,” has received quite a bit of air play on radio stations, and fans all over the country are beginning to discover his unique sound and ability.

“Whatever you want to do in life, you can do it,” Trae Boy said. “Don’t give up on your dreams. I’m 30 and I still dream and I’m still trying to pursue the dream that me and my best friend would always talk about.” The single is one that Trae Boy describes as a club song that just lets the listener “feel good.”

“It’s nothing much more than a song to have a good time with,” he said. “I’m inspired by Three-Six Mafia, and that kind of served as the inspiration for this song. Ultimately it’s just a song to drink and smoke and have fun with.” The single was followed up with a new album called All Profits, which Trae Boy released in October of this year. The album features 14 songs, and the release was hosted by DJ Genius out of Atlanta, Georgia. The album features most of his originals, with some features from other hip-hop artists that he’s worked with over the years.

Trae Boy operates as part of an indie rap label called 635 Entertainment – based out of Dallas, Texas. He first gained notoriety in 2009 when he was featured on a number of indie mixtapes. In 2010 he was featured on DJ Young Cee’s mixtape “Turfwarz Vol. 4,” which gained him even more exposure nationwide. Over the past five years he has traveled all over the U.S. promoting his music and making a name for himself.

As Dante Swave prepares for the release of his upcoming EP, Take Your Soul, the introspective rapper delivers the lead single to the project dubbed, “Vibes” produced by Shhbang Records.

 

According to Dante the song is about energy, self love and the idea of being alive: “The way you can catch a vibe is through energy, any feeling that makes you feel good in any sort of way. Aesthetics within your visionary perception. Meeting people you connect with, having fun, and being comfortable with yourself is how you catch a vibe. It all starts with self-love and loving the idea of being alive,” Dante explained.

 

After taking his high school by storm rapping a diss record at the school talent show, Dante Swave became inspired to pursue rap seriously speaking on real life situations and violence that he witnessed in New York as a youth.

 

I started rapping when I was 13 years old because of life situations that made me put a pen to paper like violence in the streets of NYC and common teen depression,” Dante Swave explained. “I made a diss track towards someone at my old high school in retaliation for making a song about me. I  performed it at a school talent show which made my whole school go crazy, making me realize this is what I wanted to do”

 

Rolling into the Summer, Dante Swave is prepping for his Take Your Soul EP and encourages everyone to live their best life.”Be yourself and live your best life, this world is like an alternate reality just play it the best way you can and have fun.”
