Ottawa, Canada, 20th Nov 2021, ZEXPRWIRE, Trevah born Trevor Ndopu in 1998, took an interest in rapping at an early age. Growing up listening to artists like 50 Cent, Lil Wayne, and Tupac, Trevah has said that he tried rapping as a hobby at first. But by the time he reached high school, almost everyone noticed he had a real talent. Trevah offers what is missing in today’s rap music. He offers an alternative to traditional rap music consistently delivering melodic sounds, personal displays of vulnerability and truthful storytelling . The macho alpha male stereotype that rappers often embrace is exactly what this niche of artists is fighting against, often showcasing deep emotion and openness. He also represents a growing trend amongst young artists of not signing to major labels and choosing to remain independent.
Trevah proudly represents his home city of Ottawa. He has the word loyalty tattooed on his face which represents the strong feeling of support and allegiance in his city. He explains that in Canada he believes that the winter forces you to get to know yourself better and that he prefers the slower pace of the city as opposed to other major cities like Toronto or Los Angeles. Trevah explains that his father is writer and publisher as well supporting Trevah throughout his early stages in his career, encouraging him and reassuring him that his music was exceptional.
Since 2019 , Trevah has been consistently refining and polishing his sound with each song. His approach to conceptualizing his music and his projects is what makes him stand out. We are living in an age where every rapper is releasing projects as “albums” when they are really glorified mixtapes or compilations of different singles with no cohesion. His most recent album is called Beat The Odds. It dropped in 2021 and is undoubtedly his best work. Trevah explained that the album represents his will to accomplish things that most would deem impossible and succeed in the music industry despite all the odds that are against him.
His most recent single “Maintain ” has amassed an impressive 50 thousand plus streams in November , 2021. Trevah touch’s on the common theme in hip hop doing what it takes to obtain status , power and material success. It’s something millions of people around the world can relate to, and something Trevah witnessed in his community starting at a young age.“
