TREVONTE THE GREAT LP REVIEW!!!

Many of you may not know Trevonte the Great, a hip hop loving mc from Milwaukee, but he and I go way back and he wanted me to hear some of his new music. Here’s a review and some tracks for you to check out. I got the chance to hear some of his new stuff and I particularly like the following two tracks.

Dude I’m Great:This joint was a good one. The first verse was a lil off but it picked up in the second and third. I love the way he uses swing style (for all my jazz rookies that’s long, short, long) against the beat. That creates a very nice fit in any tune. The content is awesome because he talks about how great he is without using a drug influence.

She Aint: This was another tune that deserves mention. Tre talkes about his girlfriend and how she’s not his “bitch”, “hoe”, or any other words people try to make sound good for their woman. Another use of the long short style adds color to this poetic ode.

Shortcomings:There were a few short stops on this LP. Although Tre is from Milwaukee he currently resides in Arkansas so its natural for him to have a southern influence (not my taste but it works for most). Most of the beats include the claps and 808 bass which don’t do much for me personally. Tre also has a style similar to lil wayne (at least the way he pronounces certain words anyway). This can only go so far before it becomes a turn off.

Overall I thought the LP was good. Tre will get better with time and I’m excited to hear some more work from him. Check out his myspace page at myspace.com/theegrt

  1. I heard this guys music on myspace, and I couldn’t agree more with the review. However, I did also like the beats alot, but I guess that’s a matter of opinion.
