Q&A with Melodic Rapper, Trinn

Meet the Teen Lyricist from North Carolina who Writes Songs Inspired By Those Around Him


By Bridney C.

"Rapping is honestly the best thing in the world to do," says Trinn.

Trinn, also known as Tre, is an independent 18-year-old singer from Havelock, North Carolina. He, along with his older cousins, are the only artists in his family.


His clever, witty rhymes, along with trap-infused hip-hop instrumentals allow Trinn to show off his eclectic artistry. Influenced by other genres of music, it is not rare to hear a guitar or a piano playing in-between breaks of him rapping.


Trinn writes about his internal problems, inspired by real-life situations he experienced with former friends and ex-girlfriends. By singing or rapping about his problems, it makes him feel better by healthily expressing them.


In addition to singing, Trinn dances in his free time and participates in his high school marching band. Currently, a senior in high school, Trinn hopes to pursue a career in music full-time once he graduates.


In this edition of Q&A, Trinn opened up about the significance of his songs, what his sound reflects, and which important words inspire him.


BC: What is the significance of those songs, and what special meaning do they hold?

T: The majority of my songs are about someone who I held close to me and how they impacted me negatively, but also positively. Most of the time, you will see that my songs contradict each other.


BC: Describe your sound. What does it reflect?

T: I would describe it as versatile yet familiar, truthful, and Eden. Most of my music is emo rap/pop music that reflects on my mental health and how my life is going, but I spread my genre around from time to time.


BC: What are your top 3 favorite songs you have recorded and released?

T: I’d have to say Liquid Gold, Sweetdreams, and what do u want? Those three songs resemble different parts of my life when I was in a spot of feeling like I was not wanted. Luckily, I had my friends around me for that reassurance.


BC: What kind of advice would you give to someone who would like to start a music career?

T: Push forward. Only your opinions should matter to yourself, and then the support will come. Your biggest critic should be you and friends who aren’t afraid of telling you the truth. So you just got to grab life and use it as a mic, let the world hear your voice no matter how small it is.


BC: What are some important words that inspire you?

T: I love you son, and I support what you’re doing.
