Brandon Callender's interview with Atlanta's CEO Trayle, which we published at the end of 2020, was an illuminating read. You got a sense that Trayle had a sober vision of the industry and its pitfalls, what could help him and what could hold him back, and how he could best position himself to best benefit from his skills as a rapper. Eager to show the world there's more to him than his viral hit "Ok Cool," Trayle is back today with a new song "Sucka Free."
"Mr. Walk This Shit Down, I don't need no shooter" Trayle growls on the opening of "Sucka Free," displaying the independent streak he spoke on in his interview. The song is a classic cut of Atlanta street rap, greyscale and full of as many threats of violence as promises of continued success. For his part, Trayle sounds like he's just released an entire's lung's worth of smoke without ever losing his breath. It's ominous but engaging. Listen below.
