Prizing lyricism and realism, Queens rapper Trav blends the aesthetic of New York street rap with a strong sense of melody. Floating over ethereal vocal samples with an infectious auto-tune, Trav shares one for the smokers with “Rolled Up,” his latest single. Featuring a soaring hook from Tory Lanez and a scene-stealing appearance from Belly, “Rolled Up” proves that Trav can make bangers of every shape, size, and flavor. Premiered by HYPEBEAST, “Rolled Up” is the latest single from QRAK (Queens Raised A King), Trav’s upcoming album. Featuring appearances from Meek Mill, Lil Durk, Jim Jones, Blac Youngsta, Don Q, and Vory, QRAK hits stores on December 8th. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.
Born and raised in Jamaica, Queens, Trav started rapping at the age of 16, catching the attention of NYC tastemakers, including DJ Whookid and DJ Green Lantern. Trav credits his first big break to DJ Green Lantern’s radio show on Sirius XM. In 2009, Trav linked up with 50 Cent, who brought the young rapper into his network of G-Unit affialiates. Trav released his first solo tape The Way I See It, and then released Follow Me, hosted by DJ Whookid, which featured the single “Ride The Wave,” which made a splash on urban radio. Since “Ride The Wave,” Trav has collaborated with Lloyd Banks and Juelz Santana, and he recently opened for Sean Kingston and Jim Jones on the “Red Bull Presents: Vamp Life Tour.” Earlier this month, Trav shared “Laying Low” an urgent, head-nodding anthem with appearances from Don Q and Blac Youngsta.
