Fresh off signing with Mike WiLL Made-It's Ear Drummer imprint, Trouble pulls up with a new visual for "Real Is Rare," a cut from his forthcoming Edgewood project.
The new video is a black and white one that finds Trouble, who recently spent some time behind bars for drug possession, rocking his bandana Tupac style as he stands in what looks like a vacant lot in a rural area—possibly a basketball court. Just before the song itself begins, we're greeted with the words, "We used to kill and die for money. Or respect."
From there, we see a group of bandana-rocking men engaging in some target practice as Trouble's new song acts as the soundtrack."Fuck niggas, I can't fuck with them/Real is rare, so I'd rather fuck with niggas/Real is rare so I'd rather fuck with niggas," he spits on the song.
"Real Is Rare" is yet another sign of Trouble coming up big throughout the rest of 2018. Speaking on the Peach State rapper after signing him to his imprint, Mike WiLL made it clear he expects big things.
"No other producer x artist combo can pull off what Trouble and I are about to do," he said. "Edgewood is only the beginning. I really felt like it was time for a level up for Trouble."
Mike Will continued, "I’ve been watching his grind for years now, since we were young as fuck, coming up in Atlanta on the music scene, trying to make something out of nothing. Trouble is the only person from the city who’s going to give you that raw, pure, honest, real rap, mixed with originality, new flavor, new flows and new lingo. He has the grind, work ethic, and dedication to back it up and the city knows.” Word.
