The only way to describe “IMMORTAL HU$$LE”, the debut album from Ohio native, Trauma The Alpha, officially dropping 10/28/20, is that it represents a big moment in his career. All eyes will be on him for an impressive launch, and the Cincinnati spitter looks set to deliver. Trauma The Alpha is fixated on separating himself from his peers, notably by embracing his continual growth as delineated on the tracks “Lets Get Paid” and “Head Huntin” ft. Pete Millións.

The twist in the tale is that Trauma, takes those facts and weaves them into mesmerizing narratives with jaw-dropping flows and killer one-liners: “I’m sick with the flow, like I’m sick with the flu”.
“Lets Get Paid” is a stylistic extension of what Trauma The Alpha has been doing for a while – breaking simple rap bars into entangled and hard-hitting metaphors and complicated punchlines running on uneven flows. “The streets left me with bullet wounds and battle scars. I jumped up in that truck like an Avatar. Pockets filled with paper like a catalog. My trunk up in the front like an elephant.”
It’s a mix of fiery street braggadocio and conscious lyrical sophistication. It’s the introduction to an artistic explosion.

Overflowing with melodic sing-song flourishes, and a banging beat, the track capitalizes on almost every moment the rappers spend on it. Every verse on the track is peppered with sharp imagery and wavy, twisted mellifluous flows, as Trauma The Alpha and Pete Millións flex their skills while exchanging bars.
