It's The TruthFat Trel: If you gave me one answer, I would say every single song is the truth. I was the one to over exaggerate in my lyrics and my lifestyle. It’s a perfect story from a young nigga who ain’t never have shit to come up.  I think that’s what my story is. I just want to express the lifestyle of a young black teenager coming from Washington D.C., who is coming from the opposite train tracks of Wale. 

A lot of people look at Wale and they think that’s the vision and that’s how they are. You know, he’s not from my side. He didn’t grow up doing the things that I did. I didn’t graduate high school. I wasn’t thinking about college. I didn’t think about the Jordan IIIs or the Sabado bucket hats. Balenciaga jackets. That wasn’t my lifestyle. I just want people to see the truth coming out of Washington D.C. How we rock, how we roll. 

The truth is I am a young savage who comes from the worst streets of Washington D.C. But, I also have a heart. I’m a family man. I’m a cancer so I love a lot. I’m sensitive about my music. I care about what people think about me. I just want people to know that this is a genuine rapper. I’m not a nigga looking for a check. Checks and money don’t excite me. I’ve been homeless and been happy before. I just want people to see the authenticity of the artist versus another nigga who just signed to Maybach.

Fat Trel’s 5 Reasons To Download His New Mixtape ‘Gleesh’

"Get Down"
Artist: Cam'ron
Producer: Chad Hamilton
Release Year: 2004
Song Sampled: "Life's Opera"
Sample Release Year: 1985
Sample Effect: Dipset was always surprisingly effective at looping a quick, seconds-long sample and building an entire song out of it, and that's exactly what Killa does here.
Why The Song Is Dope: There will always be a debate about which album was Cam'ron's best, but for my money it's gotta be Purple Haze, and I don't care what the rest of y'all think. The track is so simple, and that's exactly what makes it so perfect; all you really need at the end of the day is something to ring in the beat, and let Killa do the rest. One of the standouts of his career, and a Dipset classic. It's, for better or for worse, the Diplomats' version of Jay's "Hard Knock Life," but it samples a much less annoying track. —DR
