Trouble is on a roll. After creating one of the best projects of 2016, Trouble has spent most of the year promoting his superb standout Skoobzilla mixtape. Consistently releasing videos and performing his high energy live shows throughout the southeast, it seemed like Trouble was simply riding the wave of well-earned success. That couldn’t be farther from the truth.
Trouble has been working with everyone from Shawty Fresh to Metro Boomin; C4 to Mike Will Made It and more. While Skoobzilla made many aware of Trouble, he’s been an established street artist in the south for a few years. His 2015 project #ZayDidIt – which was Executive Produced by Zaytoven – sparked the current growth spurt for the Atlanta street artist and saw him developing a sound beyond the stark haunting music he’d created in his first mixtapes.
The latest work from Troub & Zay titled “Who YouKiddin“. The uptempo bass-heavy bouncing track frames the portrait Trouble paints with the lyrics. Menacing & witty; celebratory & lesson giving – it all sounds like fun if you’re not paying attention as Trouble snarls:
“I went from a chain-gang cell to a fuckin jet/Went from talkin bout it to bringin my Mom a check. I went from showin love and a nigga being unappreciated/To saying fuck a nigga he got a hoe heart and you’ll never make it. P*ssy!”
The streets of the Atlanta underworld are ruthless and dirty and grimy. Trouble is a diamond shining among the refuse.
Look for the full project #BIGGTROUBLE to drop before the year’s out. Right now enjoy the latest from one of the most authentic voices in rap today.
