After dropping his first release of the new year, a Lil Durk assisted track called Real Ni**a Party,” Trav comes back with another powerful record. “Mexico” starts off with Trav just south of the border. The cameras follow the EMPIRE signee as he finds love in foreign lands in a Romeo and Juliet type plot. Trav falls hard for the leading lady who happens to be the daughter of his plug. Needless to say, once he finds out, the plug is not too happy with the new found romance and is outraged wrapping up with a to be continued story ending.
Ten years since first emerging in 2009, Trav comes into his own as not only a rapper, but also as a mogul, businessman, and force of nature for the culture. The Queens, NY native has collaborations with everyone from Travis Scott to Meek Mill. Rising up from the Borough, he initially attracted the endorsement of fellow Queens hero 50 Cent and G-Unit, which led to subsequent touring throughout 2010. Meanwhile, his debut solo mixtape, The Way I See It, put up numbers with half-a-million downloads. Follow Me spawned the breakout “Ride The Wave,” which got the remix treatment from Juelz Santana and Lloyd Banks. He joined Sean Kingston on tour with Justin Bieber, and Kingston featured on the single “Up and Down.” 2017’s Qrak racked up over 2 million cumulative streams and boasted bangers like “Blow My High” [feat. Meek Mill], “Rolled Up” [feat. Belly & Tory Lanez], “Counted Me Out” [feat. Jim Jones], and “Bando” [feat. Lil Durk]. He teased his next chapter with the 2019 anthem “Called It” [feat. Nav] which racked up 1 million-plus streams.
