Southern MC Trent the Hooligan is a recent gem on our radar, dripping in undeniable talent and unique style influenced by Outkast, Goodie Mob, and UGK.
Introduced to hip-hop by his brother, Trent realized it was his calling and released his EP B4imetu: A Prelude to Medusa in 2018, followed by his debut album Medusa in 2019. Now, he’s back with a new single and video for “GLiM!” and an album announcement for ALLGASNOBRAKEZ! set to release on 4-18-23.
“I wrote my verse for ‘GLiM’ in my head while I was driving around LA. The lyrics play on the idea that we were all made in a creator’s image. Everything’s a reflection of the creator, right? So I’m like God looking in the mirror” is an eternally empowering statement. NyBanga agreeing to rap over a soul chop beat with me is unorthodox on paper, but works so well. As soon as I heard the beat I knew his tone would sit beautifully on it. This song is as North Carolina as it gets; it highlights our spirit and natural charisma.”trent the hooligan
