Artist: Shug Da Trappa
He’s from Clinton, Maryland and he’s one of the most bubbling artists out of the DMV music scene right now and he’s been putting the work in without a cosign.
Growing up his family struggled like many other people in his community but he doesn’t look back at the experience negatively because he was able to create a lot of good memories with great people such as his friends and family members.
He started rapping when his brother would just play beats off of his Macbook and they would both try to make music with the limited equipment that they had. For years they would go on making music this way and he was initially known as Young Shug. When he was in high school he dropped a tape called Since a Youngin, the entire school was running it up and he realized he had a lot of support to he started to take rap a lot more seriously.
In terms of the music this guy is very talented, I think he has a great ear for beats and I really like his flow as well. When putting together music he freestyles more than he writes. He also just dropped his 4Real project with my favorite song being World Is Yours, it’s a cool reflective track.
My favorite records from him:
Shug Da Trappa – World Is Yours
Shug Da Trappa – Kylie Jenner
hug Da Trappa – Shine
Shug Da Trappa – High Lo
