Review: Trap Dreams – Dreams From The Trap
Trap Dreams – Dreams From The Trap
By: Mark Anthony Harris
I cannot find anything about this crew named Trap Dreams. I went to a Soundcloud page. However, it had music. I was looking for an explanation about this group and what inspires their music. But, I came up short. Thus, I know nothing about a group whom I’m doing a review about.
I have listened to this album numerous times and I have grown to fully enjoy it.
What I did enjoy was the bounce of the production and focus of the songs. With tracks like “Loyalty”, “Finesse”, and “Day by Day”, the lyrics keep things grounded with topics of struggle, success, and diligent work efforts. Meanwhile, the beats keep things both bouncy and bass heavy. While there are samples here and there, most of the production is virtually sample free and allows for nuances to occur. With that understood, the music is pretty good because of the mesh between the words and the sounds.
However, the only real drawback is that the group hasn’t developed their own distinct personalities/styles just yet. This is the only real thing keeping them from becoming bigger now. Once they develop that aspect, then they will have nothing to worry about. However, many won’t catch on because their ears won’t readily distinguish them among other rappers of their ilk. In short, Trap Dreams just need to develop their style to keep people aware and wanting.
Dream From The Trap is a nice album/EP to get the attention of listeners but it may not be enough to keep them invested. However, the great news is that they have what it takes to be bigger. All it takes is some tweaking, growth, and development. Once they become a group of musical distinction, then they will gain plenty of traction. Until then, any dreams happening in the trap may not be enough to take them beyond their impressive potential.
