His face is familiar to most, tatted up with a blank stare. But behind the hard look lies the story of Trouble. His real life approach to his music helps fans embrace the journey behind it.
Rapper, Trouble grew up in Zone 6, the Eastside of Atlanta. He grew independent from his parents early in life and turned to the street for guidance. Headed down a troubled path, Trouble was offered the opportunity to put his experiences into music. Big Bank Black recruited Trouble to join the Duct Tape Entertainment family.
While Trouble was working on some music for the label, he was arrested and locked up for two years. Although this put a pause in his music career, when he got out, he got right back in the booth to record his debut mixtape. December 17th gave Trouble a name in the game and soon he was dropping mixtape after mixtape. In only two-years time, he already had 4 mixtapes under his belt.
Trouble has 8 mixtapes so far and has collabed with many notable artists such as Fetty Wap, Pusha T, Yo Gotti, YFN Lucci and more. In one of his more notable collaborations, Thief of the Night with Young Thug, he was able to reach a wider audience and gain recognition beyond Atlanta.
He has a “refuse to lose” attitude and an honest approach to music. Trouble has gotten this far as an underground rapper and he continues to climb to the top. He’s not afraid to share his thoughts and actions to inspire people to do things differently than he did. “I’d rather see young people make it, rather than go through the things I did,” said rapper Trouble, “you don’t have to go through the streets to be respected. It’s about being real with yourself.”
Trouble embraces his past and looks forward to the future. His music tells the story of who he is and he doesn’t hold back. This year, he’ll share this story to the guests at A3C.
