Today, Nov. 4 is the birthday of Atlanta's own Trouble, who now turns 31.

Trouble made a name for himself regionally when he signed to rapper Big Bank Black's record label, Duct Tape Ent. Just as he was starting to come up, Trouble got locked up for two years. Determined to make it in hip-hop once he got out, Trouble began to release a string of mixtapes, like the Zaytoven-produced and streets-approved ZayDidIt that got him noticed by big names like Killer Mike and Pusha T.

In 2016, Trouble came back with a vengeance. The Southern spitter dropped his highly anticipated Skoobzilla mixtape and once again worked with big names to get it done. Trouble, Big Bank Black, Young Thug and Young Dolph all linked up for the "Ready (Remix)", and Trouble collaborated with Quavo, Thug and Skippa da Flippa on “Whatchu Doin." He also tapped Fetty Wap for “Anyway/Everyday." So despite the minor setback of being arrested in late June of last year, Trouble seems to be on his way up once again.

Last year, the rapper dropped his anticipated mixtape 16, which features collabs with Skippa, Boosie BadAzz, Peewee Longway and T.I. The "Private" rapper was featured in a trailer for Birds of a Feather 2, which stars him alongside producer Zaytoven and Detroit rapper Kash Doll.

Taking his momentum into 2018, Trouble dropped off his Edgewood album this past March. Featuring the typically top-notch production from Mike WiLL Made-IT, Trouble's authoritative voice and a feature from Drake, the LP marked another step in the rapper's journey toward rap superstardom.

Happy Birthday, Trouble!
