“We’ve been discovering stars for decades at Block Entertainment, all the way back to Yung Joc and Jeezy,” shared Big Block. “I definitely see that star quality in J. Lock, so when Hugh Neil from Stoner Road Music Empire brought him to me, I knew we had to get to it. Our motto is ‘rebuilding hip hop block by block’, and J. Lock has all the tools to go all the way.”

Finesse2Tymes follows R&B legend RL (Next), who was featured on J. Lock’s “Selfish,” which reached the top of Urban Radio’s Top 40 charts. “Selfish” has garnered over 200k streams on Apple and Spotify to date. “Selfish” and “Money” prepare fans for J. Lock’s full-length formal introduction project, currently under development and set for a late 2023/early 2024 release. “Money” is J.

Fat Trel & Millyz Drops “Airplane Mode”

Published

on

DMV titan Fat Trel goes on “Airplane Mode” with help from Beantown barsmith Millyz. Accompanied by a matching music video, the Kidd Slopes produced collaboration from the east coast emcees follows Trel’s previous releases “Right Or Wrong” featuring Kash Doll’s husband Tracy T and Sada Baby assisted single “Steppa.” Serving as the latest leak from his forthcoming album ‘Boosa’s Keeper,’ expected to be released towards the end of the Summer, the HD-clip finds the pair trading verses about everything from loyalty to downside of fame.

Fat Trel has nurtured and grown his organic storytelling ability with creative word play and pulverizing flow. Taking a raw approach to music, some would say as graphic and grimy as the streets of DC, but equally memorable and captivating nonetheless. He holds no punches and tells each story with such relativity they appear verbatim, in a matter of fact nature, that illustrates he is genuinely home grown and not caught up in the idea of being from the streets.

Martrel Reeves PKA Fat Trel was a child far more ambitious and cognizant of his surroundings than the norm. At age seven, he professed ambitions to be a rapper, while peers delivered the proverbial “I have a Dream” Speech about aspirations to be nurses, doctors, lawyers, and fire fighters. As peers sat excited by the endless possibilities of the future, Fat Trel sat perplexed by the harsh realities of DC; the place he called home. Fat Trel exited high school at age 15, caught up in the lure and necessity of street life; a road more traveled when the have-nots impose an immediate call to action. Unconvinced high school education would support his family or cultivate his ambitions, Fat Trel hit the ground running in pursuit of being an emcee and has not stopped running since.
