It’s been exactly a year since D.C. rapper Fat Trel released his Gleesh mixtape, and after suffering from a broken leg via a motorcycle accident, the “Respect With The Teck” rapper is back with a brand new tape titled Georgetown.
Centered around ’80s nostalgia, Georgetown will be Fat Trel’s attempt at bringing back the period of time when D.C. was “different.”
We caught up with the Maybach Music rapper to discuss his forthcoming mixtape and his time down at the SXSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas.
During our interview, I addressed the division amongst D.C. emcees and Fat Trel quickly set the record straight about his issues with “fake” rappers misrepresenting the city he loves. The 24-year-old rapper also broke down what it means to be a “Slutty Boy” and bringing his own gogo-inspired showcase down to Austin.
Fat Trel’s forthcoming Georgetown mixtape is due out April 20 and will feature guest appearances by Rick Ross, Wale, Troy Ave, N.O.R.E., and many more of your hip-hop favorites.
