Check out TrusB

Today we’d like to introduce you to TrusB.

TrusB, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
Attending an arts High school, all types of different artist surrounded me. Being a visual artist, I never thought about creating music, but I always had an ear for good music. As a junior, there were two of my peers that were rappers. They would always record new songs after school on garage band and post their songs on myspace. On day one of the two had to leave right after school, so I was asked to step in and record. At first, I felt as though I couldn’t because I didn’t know what I was doing, but then I was told: “it’s easy all you do is press a button.” Once we got going and I realized how easy and fun it was, I said: “so we recording tomorrow too?” Eventually, I began to ask daily, and the day came where both of them weren’t recording. So I took it upon my self to make my own song. After that, it was all she wrote I’ve never turned back. From viral jerk videos to now creating some dope art; it’s been a long journey, and honestly, it’s just beginning.

We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
Life is art and art is life; I feel as though my music speaks through different contexts. The ability to capture all different sides and forms of the ways people connect with music is exciting. I tell everyone that my sound is Catered. The reason I say that is because there are so many different forms of music that I can create, although my main style is, of course, west coast hip hop. Not just hardcore west coast hip hop but also funk and groovy west coast styles. I love creating music because I feel that through music, we can help people feel good, get through struggles, motivate them, etc. My music speaks along the lines of a young man out here trying to make thing s happen for his self “By Any Means;” even though there are things in life that consistently want to push us towards the wrong direction. The biggest takeaway message within my music would be; “people will always see you a certain way, but until you realize your greatness, you’ll never be able to walk in your light.”

PS. I’m also a visual artist; so I’m working on creating some paintings that tie into my music for current and future projects.

Artists face many challenges, but what do you feel is the most pressing among them?
The biggest challenges facing artist today is everyone else opinion. Honestly, I struggled with this badly for a long time I can’t say I’m 100% over it but the more and more I shake it off the better and better I get. Realizing that for that one person that doesn’t like your art, there are 20 people that love it. Plus their opinion has no value to your life, and it changes nothing. So don’t worry about all the extra bull shit and create your art, the right people will come to you, and those are the people you need behind you electrifying your energy.

Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
My music is currently out on all music streaming sites as long as you search “TRUSB” I should pop up and for every current with me feel free to follow me on Instagram: @TrusB. As for my visual art pieces, they are not currently viewable, but I am working on a visual art Instagram page so stay tuned on my main Instagram page.
