Trent The Hooligan Is Back With GL!M
Trent The Hooligan, the son of a pastor, was born in Atlanta but was raised between Florida and North Carolina. Trent is living proof that the South still has something to say. OutKast and UGK expanded his imagination, and Trent turned his natural knack for words to make influential rap music that speaks to the world’s complex truths without ever preaching to the listener (like his father does). Trent leads by example, sharing stories of injustice and adversity to create music that inspires a new generation of listeners.
His first musical appearance came in 2017 when he appeared on the south Korean-born Raleigh native Sangstaa track titled “YeaiKno.” He made his solo debut shortly after releasing “Purple People,” featuring MIA Gladstone. The music video for the single was his first ever, and since then, it has received +17k views on it. Ever since the video, Trent has released 18 singles and has a successful debut project called Medusa. Before his debut was released, he dropped an EP, “B4imetu: A Prelude to Medusa”, in 2018. After a positive response from his fans and peers, “Medusa” was finally released in 2019 and was a great display of Trent’s musical ceiling, which shows to be very high. He stands out, whether it’s his appearance, lyrical content, or beat choice. I’m a massive fan of his beat choice and how he significantly tailors his flow to each instrumental he uses. I would love to see a collaboration with Trent and someone like Isaiah Rashad or West$ide Boogie.
The newest Varick Street (Def Jam affiliate) signee Trent The Hooligan announced he would be dropping a new album on April 18th, and he would be calling it “AllGasNoBrakez”. The first song to be released from the album was “GL!M”, and it features NyBanga. His distinctive style and voice- a (southern accent) — is a highlight of his sound, but it truly stands out on “GL!M”. Another highlight of the single happens to be NyBanga, who happens to be singing and composing the song’s hook. He showcases his lyrical ability on this track and shows why he is next up.
