Music: Bout That Life by Young Trajik and B. Rich – Warren, OH

Young TrajikWe had a chance to meet Young Trajik last year when we traveled to Warren, OH to film his ArtistATWork feature. This dude has a loyal following that is growing bigger and bigger by the second. The day of the filming Young Trajik was putting on a show in Warren. The show was such a success that the crowd kept asking for an encore, the place was packed from wall to wall. This is probably the most support I have ever seen for a local artist that is not as yet on a major stage. Young put the whole town on #BANGMODE.
Young recent released a new track and yes we had to place it. Take a sec and read the little interview we did with Trajik about, “Bout that Life”
Why did you select this song as your current single?
Well, this song (Bout That Life feat B.Rich) is one of the favorites on my new EP. The fan feedback we got back from the track was remarkable and it was a no-brainer that it had to be a lead single. I really dig the song too. It just brings the “Grit and Griminess” out of my music! Very edgy but a pure club banger!
How does this single relate to the rest of the Album, EP or Mix-tape?
The “Bangmode Music EP” is just a collection of new material along with some of my biggest songs to date.  I thought that not only current supporters of my music deserved everything in one package but music lovers that have no idea who Trizzle is could get hip to my sound as well. This single embodies all parts of me along with the EP. The edginess, witty flow and banging beats! It’s all heard on “Bout That Life”.
What was the writing process for the song?
It kind of fell in place; I got the beat and the chorus just pour out! Once I got the format for the song, I dropped my two verses and sent it to my homie B.Rich and the rest was history. The beat was so nasty I had to say “UGH!!” during the chorus (Laughs)·
What does this song’s lyric mean to you?
“Bout That Life” doesn’t mean what most people think. If you bout making money, YOU BOUT THAT LIFE! If you going to college and aiming towards success, YOU BOUT THAT LIFE! If you like to stay fresh and fly, YOU BOUT THAT LIFE! And so on. Whatever you take pride in doing well, YOU ABOUT THAT LIFE, simple as that.
What would it be like to see you in person performing this song?
We actually performed the song LIVE for the first time over a week ago and the footage is in the official video! It was a dope performance with a lot of energy from me and B.Rich! The crowd was definitely on BANGMODE and singing along with the chorus. When you hear that beat and those rhymes over it, you have NO choice!
Could your fans summarize who you are as an artist by this song?
I think I’m so complex it would be hard to summarize me by one song but if you want to get a good introduction to me, this song would be a great start.
Is there a video planned and or completed and if so, what was the idea behind the video?
Yea the video is done and ready for viewing online as we speak! The idea for the video was directed by da homie D.Brick (@prodbyDBrick) along with my vision. It was basically all about a fun “Kick It” atmosphere and putting on a great show because we are definitely BOUT THAT LIFE!   The song is also AVAILABLE on iTunes NOW!!!
One last question, what is your motivation behind your music?
My motivation is just making good music for people to enjoy and receive some form of therapy from it.  I want everybody to feel like their problems are non-existent for those couple of minutes they’re listening to a Trizzle track! It’s all about the people and if nobody appreciated what I did as an artist, I probably wouldn’t be doing music.  At the end of the day I just love creating!
