Tag Archives: Fat Trel

So our favorite DMV badman Fat Trel made a song about his favorite strip club. Apparently he’s not alone either, because the Stadium Club has over 20,000 twitter followers. With Lee Bannon behind the boards, Trel takes the “Bands A Make Her Dance” approach on “Make It Clap” in both subject matter and sonic qualities. This new brand of strip club music is based on a sort of attack and release philosophy, wherein your ratchet rapper of choice says gully, demeaning shit over time-stretched production (not actually time-stretched, but in a hip hop sense). It’s all about building and relieving stress, and while the MC isn’t necessarily expendable, any no fucks given Southern rapper can fit the archetype. That being said, Trel is no slouch on “Make It Clap”, ┬árunning through regional references as fast as he’s losing bands. So yeah, shouts out to Fat Trel. Shouts out to Lee Bannon. But most of all, shouts out to the Stadium Club. Stream and download below.


A few years ago, I remember listening to some Yelawolf mixtape with a Kane Beatz beat on it. I think Juelz Santana was also on the track. I bumped the track all the time for a few months. Then I realized Yelawolf kind of blows and Juelz and Kane were the only reasons why I liked the track. Anyways, Kane Beatz has some heaters beyond his Top 40 production, although I’ll admit “Right Above It” is hawt. Fat Trel is a Washington D.C. native who’s been attempting to fill the void left by Young Jeezy (he’s gone right?) and Clipse with snarling, rapid-fire crack anthems. Taking a break from writing crack rap for a moment (sort of), Trel gets all misogynistic on “Is It Chu” over Kane’s murderous backing. And sometimes you do just need a little misogyny in your hip hop. And yes I am a man so you can hate me for saying that. Stream and download below.
