There's palm trees, gangbangin, and the best smoke, but there's so much more to the West Coast – Cali's elite emcee Trek Life opens a new realm in Golden State Hiphop.
Today the first single, What It Is (Apollo Brown Remix), was released from his upcoming project Wouldn't Change Nothing. Detroit producer Apollo Brown approached the track by trying to craft an entirely new sound from the Oddisee original in an effort to compliment Trek's agressive flow. Trek Life commented after hearing the finished track: "What It Is is one of the rawest tracks I ever recorded, it's crazy that Apollo made it even MORE RAW!"
The upcoming album is a remix project that gives new producers a take on last summer's Oddisee collaboration "Everything Changed Nothing". The new project contains production from Apollo Brown, J Bizness, ST/MiC, MarvWon, Has-Lo, Captain, Slimkat78, Duke Westlake, A3, Bombay, and of course long time friend and collaborator Oddisee. Look for the new album at itunes next Tuesday July 12th!

"Here's a demo of a song we made about a year and a half ago at my east coast studio '36 East'. It's featuring Kosha Dillz, one of the rawest Jewish kids I know proving again that hip-hop comes in all shapes, sizes, forms and races... I thought I'd show him some love. The very special guest featured on this track is one of the illest of all time Kool G Rap."
