THE BANDWAGON is primarily focused on independent artists, but at its core, its for every artist out there on the come up. Today, we will focus on a rapper who is on, but still looking to make it big on the national scene. That emcee is DC’s hardest artist, Fat Trel, who is signed to Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group/Atlantic Records. Fat Trel drops a solo mixtape every year, and has recently put out his latest, entitled “Georgetown” in honor of his hometown’s more affluent section.
Washington, DC is one of the most volatile areas in the United States but has a unique flavor all its own. DC residents rock clothes only found in the city. There are foods such as mambo sauce, which is only sold in DC Chinese spots. The most noticeable would be the music in DC. Go-Go reigns supreme. Fat Trel is no go-go artist, but he is infusing the genre of trap rap with that distinct DC flavor.
Repping NE DC and his Slutty Boys squad, Fat Trel has delivered a banger of a tape with “Georgetown.” With guest appearances from boss Rick Ross and label mate Wale, and production by some of the industry’s premier producers, such as Beat Billionaire, Cool & Dre, Young Chop and others, “Georgetown” rides from beginning to end. The songs would make even the most straight-laced civilian want to hop into the streets and get busy. Fat Trel definitely provides inspiration for folks coming from similar beginnings to go out and get it. While the majority of the tape is devoted to sex, drugs and money, Trel closes things out with a heartfelt tribute to his mother on his own version of “Dear Momma.”
If you need something to get you charged up or ride out to, Fat Trel has you covered with this one. You can listen below, or download it here. Be on the lookout for more fire.
