Bronx-born / San Diego based rapper Joey Trap continues his hot streak with new single ‘BRACE’, out February 12th, with a video for the track soon to follow.
A maelstrom of pounding, rapid-fire trap beats and Joey’s commanding flow, ‘BRACE’ sees the fast-rising rapper at his most potent. ‘BRACE’ marks his second single release of the new year following January’s ‘BIRDIES’, with both tracks set to feature on Joey’s forthcoming album LOYALTY, out on March 15th.
“I’m gradually gaining exposure while I’ve watched people around me rise and fall so quickly,” Joey reflects. “I used to question why I haven’t blown up like other artists but now I know it’s because I wasn’t meant to burn out so quick either. So I will keep limping to the bands with my brace on taking my time, tortoise and the hare style.”
One of the most idiosyncratic artists in hip-hop, Joey Trap has drawn comparisons to the likes of Tyler, The Creator, XXXtentacion and Travis Scott. He dropped no fewer than four albums in 2020 alone, most recently the sprawling 22-track Playlist For The End Of The World (Deluxe), amassing hundreds of millions of streams in the process as his reputation continues to rise.
2021 is set to be a year with all eyes on Joey Trap, as he continues his rise into the upper echelon of hip hop.
