[With his long-awaited Gangsta Grillz: Guerilla mixtape finally available, Memphis rapper Don Trip dishes out his top five reasons to download (not buy) his latest project.]
1. The Big Picture
The number one reason is because I feel like this is something hip-hop needs. Of course I'm a fairly new artist and this is new music, but if you're a fan of Don Trip, you know I put out honest music and I put out quality music. I'm real excited about getting this out. This is the first project I've done with an established deejay and then you have DJ Drama too? I feel like this is something the game needs. It takes all kinds of music for hip-hop to keep pumping and I feel like my music, which is honest music, I feel like it's needed. I feel like it helps fulfill the whole hip-hop picture.
2. Bring The Drama
Reason number two has to be because it's hosted by DJ Drama. If you're a fan of hip-hop, period, the name DJ Drama and Gangsta Grillz means a lot to you. You're certified once you got that Gangsta Grillz album. Of course when you see a Gangsta Grillz album, it has all the prestige and Drama puts out tremendous work. The fact that I'm at a point in my career where I've worked with Drama, that was an accomplishment on my behalf. I went from hosting my own mixtapes to having DJ Drama on here. That's a good look.
3. The Greatest Story Ever Told
Number three would be because I feel like this is some of my greatest work. I haven't put out a tape since around last September and it's for the fans and the people that have been supporting me since day one. I haven't put out no new music from then to now, just to build up to this release. I feel like it's some of my greatest work because I'm in a different point in my career than I was before. Even back in September to right now, I'm in a different space. I've been doing this since I was 16, so from 16 to now, I've seen a lot of things, done a lot of things and experienced a lot of things. In the music business, I've grown a lot.
4. Born & Raised
The next reason is because I'm bringing another look for Memphis. This is for people that are fans of Memphis and for the people in Memphis. We're a fan of our own music. This is something for us and I opened the door for all of us and this environment. For the most part, I wanted to make sure Memphis was on here. Whether I want it or not, I have it on my back. It's my responsibility to push it. It's my responsibility as well as 8Ball & MJG, Three 6 Maifa and all of us. That's why I really stepped it up and reached out to people in our city. I wanted to show our unity and prove to people we can unite and do what we do. This is what we love best.
5. You Gotta Love It
The last reason is because it's great music, period. If you're a fan of great music, you're going to enjoy this. No matter whether you're a hip-hop head or into trap music, whatever kind of music you rock out to, I just make honest music and you can hear all of that.
