The cool is back… On October 2 2007 Virginia Hip-Hop artist Trew will finally release his first album D/R Period presents The Big Chill on his own Inner Circle Entertainment Records with full worldwide internet distribution courtesy of Ingrooves and Rockboy Records.
Known for underground classics, such as "What It Is" with Lyricist Lounge Great WordsWorth and teaming up with Hip-Hop producer extraordinaire D/R Period, The Big Chill has been long awaited for many years, and now fans of all ages are finally able to witness the album that they have all wanted and need for so long. The Big Chill will boast of production from legendary Hip-Hop producer Skibeatz (Reasonable Doubt, Uptown Saturday Night) Nottz (Busta Rhymes, The Game, Snoop Doggy Dog) Kleph Dollars (BlackMoon, ODB, etc.), Dox-1 (Wordsworth, Mad Skillz, etc.) and new production genius Sickness Beatz.
Not only is Trew a diverse student of the arts that has been inducted to the who's who as a musician being trained in several instruments, but he has also been trained in acting, as well as recording commercials for Ecko clothes. Trew has also charted on almost every underground chart with his 12"s. Crowds in NY, NJ, CA, FL, NC, KY, OH and of course his home state of VA, have witnessed Trew's live microphone mastery and fans throughout the world have enjoyed his music.
There are now videos, an LP titled "The Big Chill" and a feature in the documentary "Hip Hop L'Amour" Directed by Derek Lucas. Trew also has two independent companies. One of the companies is Inertia Entertainment, which has gotten up and coming models into videos with himself and Hip-Hop heavyweights such as Nelly, which also lead into King Magazine. His second company, Inner Circle Entertainment works with Jacob Lotto, Simon P, CeZ, Rideout, and many other up and coming celebrities.
Trew has a certain swagger and is primarily about showing off his making abilities and as such has an amount of surpurflous lyrics, but at the same time crosses many of Hip Hops genres. So whilst he can do the slushy and the blinging type tracks he can also drop a good flow and impress on more serious offerings. Trew's rhymes endorse his own blue collar experiences: school, love, working the 9 to 5 and living the everyday struggle. Trew's patented gangsta lean is heard throughout every lyric he writes. His witty personality, along with his candor about every day life is not only brutally honest… but very refreshing.
