Trill Cut’s story is a familiar sounding one, because it is a too often recurring account of a childhood spent in a broken home, with separated parents, witnessing abusive relationships, living in a tough, crime ridden neighborhood and growing up in the care of family member, in this case , Albert, his eldest male cousin.
Albert, a underground producer, introduced Trill to hip-hop greats such as Tupac, Notorious B.I.G., Scarface and many more which had a major influence in molding him as an artist.
Growing up, Trill Cut attended the University of Florida, and subsequently became the father of two kids, which obviously impeded both his course work and artistic ambition. After working a number of dead end jobs to support his family, Trill Cut choose to pursue what he calls ‘Money Dreams’.
Trill has since won a music award for his track, “On My Way” and also made his big screen debut in the film, “Room 236: Unlawful Justice.”
Not least, Trill has launched the #MoneyDreams movement as well as Money Dreams Records and Immaculate Media Group. Trill Cut is currently working on crafting his upcoming album “Money Dreaming”, and has dropped the title track as a single in the meantime.
I am glad to say that Trill Cut hits a home run with this track. “Money Dreaming” sounds like a future classic with an epic cinematic production riding on a soul driven beat. Running through his catalog and witnessing the evolution of Trill from “Rush Hour” to this latest track, has truly been a pleasurable experience.
Sure, apart from some diverse themes he constantly raps about making money, but that’s part of his ‘Money Dreams’ theory, which he made clear from the outset? His lyrical content has evolved by leaps and bounds since he first hit the scene, and his lyrical content takes a side-by-side seat to the near flawless production.
Not only has Trill Cut improved his song writing, technique, and content but he has smoothened out his flow drastically, which has now become a major factor in his repertoire, to my mind.
Getting back to the production on this track, it is almost historic and that’s no exaggeration. It makes Trill Cut sound like a fully grown artist with an epic feel. The strings, especially, fill the track with life. It really is a sophisticated sound. The featured guest, Hi-Def, who will catch your attention, also does everything possible to compliment the track, and fits the whole concept well.
This dude has got his mind on the money…and his really serious about it too!
