Although the original trap sound is rooted in southern hip-hop, when it comes to the current wave of trap music, all bets are off. Rell the Soundbender and Far East Movement collaborated to synthesize an old school g-funk flavor into a new-school trap heater. “Inglewood” brings together a Dr. Dre-esque West Coast rap melody over trunk-rattling bass, accented with a Doctor P-esque lead. The track is sure to get crowds going and according to Rell its been doing that for a while now.
The track is the first on the upcoming Murder Was The BASS EP. Rell tells DAD that the EP is a “West Coast-influenced project,” that the EP is being sponsored by Fatal Clothing, and that there will be a limited run of t-shirts available on the West Coast and online. Rell also mentioned the project would have some “dope guests” and that we can expect to hear the project either by the end of this month or early May.
