posted by Tali November 15, 2016


One of my personal favorites out right now, the young rapper originally from Wisconsin, Trapo, has officially dropped his long awaited project Shade Trees and yes, it was most definitely worth the wait!

Trapo’s talented spirit and unique sound are exhibited perfectly. The way he can switch up his flow to prolong or match up with the beat is untouchable. The remarkable talent by this young and upcoming rapper has us way too excited for what else he has in mind next. The project also features the talented Skizzy Mars and Chicago’s very own Saba!

So, give a listen to one of the best up right now!
