New York artist, the quintessential Hood Gospel whisperer, Trav sets a staggering tone for the month with the release of his official music video to “Cain” via Money Bag Boyz Records / Team Eighty Productions. The music video premiered earlier today via YouTube and is available to watch above.
“Cain” finds the Jamaica, Queens-born artist in his element, displaying his signature melodic style. The mind-bending music video calls on the city of dreams to act as a background as Trav is backed by a close circle, including a cameo from his fellow East-coast confidant Meek Mill.
Produced by Juvy Catcher and Reon, “Cain” commands attention with his infectious flow and unleashes a chantable anthem for the streets as he sets the stage for his forthcoming new project set for a 2022 release. The single released a few short weeks ago and acts as a follow-up to his rising track “Toxic,” featuring Rowdy Rebel.
Ten years since first emerging in 2009, Trav comes into his own as not only a rapper, but also as a mogul, businessman, and force of nature for the culture. Following millions of streams and mixtape downloads and collaborations alongside everyone from Travis Scott to Young Thug, the Queens, NY favorite makes a powerful personal statement going into his budding most acclaimed year.
Rising up from the Borough, he initially attracted the endorsement of fellow Queens hero 50 Cent and G-Unit, which led to subsequent touring throughout 2010. Meanwhile, his debut solo mixtape, The Way I See It, put up numbers with half-a-million downloads. Follow Me spawned the breakout “Ride The Wave,” which got the remix treatment from Juelz Santana and Lloyd Banks. He joined Sean Kingston on tour with Justin Bieber, and Kingston featured on the single “Up and Down.” 2017’s Qrak racked up over 2 million cumulative streams and boasted bangers like “Blow My High” [feat. Meek Mill], “Rolled Up” [feat. Belly & Tory Lanez], “Counted Me Out” [feat. Jim Jones], and “Bando” [feat. Lil Durk]. He teased his next chapter with the 2019 anthem “Called It” [feat. Nav]. Not only did it rack up 1 million-plus streams, but it also attracted looks from Medium, Karen Civil, HotNewHipHop, and Hip-Hop-N-More, to name a few. In 2020, Trav released Nothing Happens Overnight under the partnership between his own Money Bag Boyz label, Team Eighty Productions Inc., and EMPIRE with key singles “Geed U” [feat. Young Thug] and “You Choose” [feat. Tory Lanez], as acclaim for his next effort arrives as the right time for Trav.
