Tuesday, October 15, 2013 – Los Angeles – Chicago native and emerging rapper Trevor the Trashman has released the first single off his upcoming album (TBA, winter 2013).
The obscenely inappropriate “Genius Penius” single is a delightfully childish and funny track. It introduces the world to a multi-talented lyricist, DJ and music producer who has cultivated his career by using an uncensored sense of humor and embracing indifference. The new track hints at what’s to come from his much anticipated forthcoming album and is available for download on SoundCloud.
“When this beat came together the very first thing that popped in my head was ‘genius penius’,” says Trevor the Trashman. “Sometimes a song just comes to you. It’s probably the funniest song on the album, I crack up every time I hear it.”
Trevor enlisted Brooklyn production collective The Vamp to lend a hand in producing the new track. “We make beautiful music together,” he said. “We wanted to make something gritty and filthy and true to hip hop and that’s how Genius Penius was born.” Trevor worked with The Vamp extensively on the forthcoming album.
“Genius Penius” is an authentic reflection of Trevor’s unapologetic style as an artist and allows his story telling skills to shine. Known for his raunchy lyrics and witty rhymes, he influences a fan culture that feeds off the weird and extraordinary. An artist heavily involved in every aspect of his music: writing, arranging and producing, Trevor self-produced his debut EP, Embrace The Weird [March 2013] and also co-produced, The Classicial Movement Mixtape [May 2012] along with Benny Nice and SmR. Now located in Brooklyn, Trevor the Trashman is putting the finishing touches on his new album. Look for the official music video for “Genius Penius” in the coming days.
