Fat Trel Talks D.C., The Slutty Boyz And Working With MMG

Fat Trel

Another one of D.C.’s sons is on the cusp of breaking out as an artist—Fat Trel, a longtime affiliate of Wale (another D.C. representer) has reportedly inked deals to become the latest member of Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group and is set to be managed by Roc Nation.

While there’s plenty on the horizon for Trel, his rise brings up an interesting question. With plenty of other cities and regions (Chicago, the Bay Area, Atlanta, etc.) getting their shine in recent years, why hasn’t the DMV (D.C., Maryland, Virginia) had its own run? Wale may be the major voice of the region, but he isn’t the only one. After all, the DMV is a melting pot of cultures, filled with a multitude of talented artists and distinct voices.

In an effort to build on the city’s strong foundation, Trel, who’s the leader of the Slutty Boyz crew, wants to not only put on for his city but also for the team he came up with. Last week, he stopped by XXL‘s offices to discuss the industry’s passive slighting of DMV artists, the origins of the Slutty Boyz movement and his new mixtape.—Emmanuel C.M. (@ECM_LP)
