Trev Case and P-Lo drop off a Bay Area slapper with “5 Star Telly”.
The Bay Area’s Trev Case is one of hip-hop’s best kept secrets.
With a legendary track record in the Bay, including multiple collaborations with Bobby Brackins and production credits on some of the most influential records to come out of the area, Trev Case has all the tools necessary to break out as a solo artist in 2017. With pipes reminiscent of a more developed Post Malone and the ability to write/produce smash records, the Alameda native has a unique talent set that recently gained the attention of T.I., prompting the legendary emcee to tap Case for his standout single “Switchin’ Lanes”, also featuring Mississippi rapper Big K.R.I.T.. Though you’ll be hearing his infectious hook and exceptional production all over the radio thanks to TIP, the best offerings from Trev lay in “Buffet”: his brand new, 4-track EP.
Despite all four tracks being worthy of your listen, the P-Lo assisted “5 Star Telly” is a standout and should be added to your weekend playlist immediately. The D. Brooks Exclusive instrumental provides a boomin’ blueprint for Trev Case to flex about his lavish lifestyle, delivering an unforgettable, braggadocios hook that sets the tone for the record. Case boasts about the amenities of a 5-star hotel while keeping it real on the flip side, explaining his come up “from the pimps” and the constant “plotting on a move to make us rich“. The intricate chorus blends flawlessly with the stellar verses, giving the Bay Area yet another potential hit.
