Thoroughly educated. Metaphorically sound. Lyrical prowess. These are the words we would use to describe Mega Trife, a new member to the Undr.Grnd. Originally submitted for his single & video “The Backspin”, a collaboration with producer & band mate Nonsense (which is dope BTW, but we’ll get back to that), we visited his Soundcloud and listened to music. Stumbling upon a song called “World Traveler” brought us here to call the emcee our newest FREESound Artist.
World Traveler brings you on a journey through history, with details of events such as the JFK & Malcolm X assassinations and the discovery of America, while giving his interpretation of his travels around the world. His opinions and metaphors are what gives his song and sound our FREESound title.
I could try to explain the song, but it’s always better to experience good music for yourself. CLICK PLAY & then keep reading for “The Backspin”, off of the MC/Producer duo Mega Trife & Nonsense recently released project “2095”.
Spoke to the man himself and he informed us of the visuals for World Traveler. Check it out.
The Backspin x Mega Trife & Nonsense
Brockton, Massachusetts rapper Mega Trife presents the Rose Glen-directed music video for “The Backspin”, the new single from 2095, his album produced entirely by his long-term partner Nonsense and featuring cuts from Statik Selektah and Rain. Trife has collaborated with M.O.P., Termanology, Nature, Von Pea, Blu and more. Trife and Nonsense’s last release was 2012’s Full Circle (click here to listen to “Anything You Heard About” featuring Termanology). Following Trife’s collaborative effort with Nonsense will be a solo album featuring production from Statik Selektah, Ski, and Khrysis. Trife says “The Backspin” was chosen as the lead single “because it encapsulates the entire essence of what 2095 is; hard rhymes over a classic breakbeat. Just because a beat may have an old school sound to it, doesn’t mean the lyrical content is or has to be old school as well.”
