Of course everyone has been keeping up with the on going saga between Birdman and Lil Wayne, namely this week Wayne getting the support of Rap-A-Lot’s J.Prince but Birdman quietly just announced a deal with Apple Music and then signed rising star Trev Rich.
Two weeks ago Trev was posting videos of him in the studio with Birdman and at CMR offices. It seems the hype has been sealed as Trev posted a video of him with a contract and his family and friends were cheering for him. There was also a heart-warming video of his mother flying from Texas to Colorado to surprise Trev with congratulations.
We previously reported on Trev with his Green Lantern assisted single “Wait A Minute,” and recently when Mike Zombie surprised the Hot97 staff naming Trev as a collaborator Rosenburg went on to give him a cocky shout-out, predicting his social media to explode.
Trev has been working in the scene for years releasing music consistently since as far back as 2010’s The Bar Code Series, then as Rockie, until this 2015’s The Way We Love. Eventually he was highlighted on Joe Budden‘s A Loose Quarter mixtape in 2012, leading touring with the MC, while being courted by several labels, ultimately landing with Cash Money Records it appears.
A label that is going through a new chapter with the departure of Lil Wayne with a roster of Jaquees, Caskey, Compton Menace, AR-ab and a once scored Juvenile. Obviously there is room for a budding talent and “Stunna” is looking for the next star to launch, Trev and his fans hope it’s him.
