A Moment with Trent the Hooligan
Atlanta-born, and raised in the church with his seven siblings, Trent is the son of a preacher that grew up listening to Christian rock, but can spit rhymes better than most. After two quick releases, 2018’s EP B4imetu: A Prelude to Medusa, followed by debut album Medusa in 2019, Trent took a moment to chat with Hidden Beats to celebrate his recent release which was three years in the making, ALLGASNOBRAKEZ!
A Creative Owl
Asked when he feels the most creative, “Night time definitely is when the juices start flowing. Usually right at night time, odd hours of the night… like four or five in the morning. Then I wake up the next day and record it.” Given his nomadic lifestyle -being born and spending his early years in Atlanta, stopping in Orlando before settling in Wilmington North Carolina, Trent describes himself a North Carolina artist. “I became a man there. Not only that, I started my musical journey there as well, and that’s where I found a lot of my identity. Although I have love for Atlanta and Florida, North Carolina is my home. That’s where my Mom and my Pops is, and all my brothers, and all my friends.”
Advice For Life
When it comes to the best piece of advice Trent has been given, Trent says “As generic as this is going to sound… just keep going, you feel me? I think there’s times as an artist that things can get frustrating and you want things to move faster. All the people around me that really love me and believe in what I’m doing, just constantly reminding me to keep going. It is *THE* best advice, and what I need. That’s the battery in my back, and if I didn’t have that, who knows?”
