Baton Rouge’s Sherwood Marty released his latest mixtape, Stuck In The Trenches 1.5 via My Mixtapes.
The project consists of 9 tracks along with a two-part documentary that reflects on and reveals Sherwood’s roots directly through his eyes. In Part One, Marty talks about his personal feelings on his infamous hometown, saying “Everywhere I go around the country, Baton Rouge in Louisiana, they just look at us like we’re the worst people ever. I don’t feel what they feel; yeah there’s a lot of hate here, but they got hate everywhere, you feel me, but there’s a lot of love here too though.”
Stuck In The Trenches 1.5 includes features from artists such as TrapboyFreddy, Yung Mal, Lil Quill, and Sherwood Flame. He reveals his struggles to break out from his tough past and sacrifices for success in stand out bangers like, “We Outchea” and “Way Up,” which video premiered on Noisey last week. Marty highlights aspects of his complicated personal life, but also takes a lighter note with love songs like “Chanel.”
Sherwood Marty first bursted onto the scene in 2016 with his breakthrough mixtape, Stuck In The Trenches: Self Made Vol. 1, which featured an appearance from the late, Da Real Gee Money. Sherwood’s uncompromising rawness garnered him over 2 million views for his “Sherwood Baby” music video, 1 million+ streams for his single “Ride,” and a popular remix to fellow Baton Rouge rapper, YoungBoy Never Broke Again‘s hit single “Untouchable.” Just last month, Sherwood teamed up with breakout Bay Area/Alabama lyricist, OMB Peezy for their joint Young and Reckless mixtape, that received praise from Pitchfork, Pigeons and Planes, Hypebeast, XXL, Hot New Hip-Hop, and other outlets.
