Prince George, VA, rapper Trew is dropping some indie heat from his label, Clocked Out Records. Early on, he gained notoriety for writing songs for soundtracks on Sony Motion Pictures, as well as jingles — on top of modeling for [major] clothing companies such as ECKO, LAYOP, and Local celebrity. New York-based labels RockBoy & Roc-a-Blok records helped to release his debut album; however, shortly after, he took a self-imposed hiatus. Trew then found himself in a new phase of his career, featured in ads on HGTV, Ads for “Johnson and Johnson” and “Dollar General”, and television shows on the [highly rated] Discovery Network. He also hit multiple stages while touring with indie and pop acts “Kid is Qual”, “The Audition” “Valencia” and “Promise of Redemption.”
His latest project is about as hip-hop as it gets with features like the immortal Camp Lo [of “Luchini” fame], Wordsworth [from Lyricist Lounge fame], and Talib Kweli protégé, Jean Grae. Trew wants to bring the “fun back to music.” His first single from the release, “My T-Shirt (Remix), which features – amongst other – Geechi Suede [from Camp-Lo], is a great look at what to come.
Check it out below, and keep an ear to the street for the Wordsworth joint dropping soon.
