Southern “Hip Hop” music, frequently referred to as ‘Trap Music‘ is a genre of America “HipHop” music, that emerged in the Southern United State, especially in Atlanta, Houston, New Orleans, Memphis and Miami.
It has been termed as a third major American “HipHop” after East Coast and West Coast “HipHop”.
Trap music is a genre that has gained much momentum through the ever growing sub-genres of “HipHop” music culture.
Trap music often consists of this typical instruments, Synthesizer, drum machine (Roland TR-808), turntables, rapping, sequencer, digital audio work station, woodwinds, sampler.
This has also reflected to the south south part of Nigeria in the early 20s, having heavy massive air and club play.
According to a popular Trap disc jockey Dj BLINK who frequently preached the gospel of southern “Hip Hop” music among his colleagues and aspiring Trap “Hip Hop” artists.
It was motivated in 2014 among Niger Delta”Hip Hop” artistes when Trapper , Rapper ASARAMONTANA returned to Nigeria from London, where he Studied “Environmental Management “, in Hertfordshire University (Hartfield, London).
ASARAMONTANA met with DJ Blink in a Popular Estate, in Yenagoa , the Bayelsa State Capital called ( Azikoro Estate), where he visited his siblings in his Late mother’s residence and TheBlue Mixtape was discussed and immediately put into work.
About ‘The Blue’ Mixtape
“The Blue” mixtape is 10 tracker mixtape which features guest appearances by Jake Robinson, Lemon Black, High Technix and was hosted by Dj Blink.
All Credits of Production, mixing and mastering of songs is master-minded by Yenagoa’s top music Producers in persons of Abiri and Slimkelz.
ASARAMONTANA, who happens to be the CEO of world famous music Label in Nigeria (BIG MONEY GANG) “BMG”, has been tirelessly working on the super southern Trap Hip-Hop mixtape titled (TheBlue) for over 2 years and has finally fixed a date for the mixtape release. On a phone interview by Trapperkoni Empire media team, the prince haired of famous southern top politician “HRH” Asara A Asara, a monarch of Akipilai community in Ogbia Local Government Area of Oil Rich Bayelsa State, has promised to drop “TheBlue” mixtape by 30th Sep” 2017.
However, two songs from the mixtape which includes “theBlue intro” and “cash cash cash”, has been leaked before now and is currently on blog sites nationwide.
“Hip Hop” artists, “On Air Personalities”, Twerkers, Comedians, others has felicitated in advance to the release of “TheBlue” mixtape by ASARAMONTANA.
Trap music has succeeded in creating an ecosystem that makes the world turn up, but people are scared of the young black creative. This has also resulted to the private sector refusal to Empower “HipHop” artist on a civic or global level because they feel like it’s too dirty or too street or uplifts criminal activities.
Moreover, Southern Nigeria “HipHop” artists have done a good job at making this a constructive movement.
Lastly, I believe Trap music is the true sound of “HipHop”. People are usually aware of such genre of music, but wait around for someone to take the Lead.
