Ready to take the game by storm after a brief hiatus, music artist Trel Mack is back. For those that might remember Trel Mack, was an artist that built a solid following back in 07-08 being featured all over major outlets in the industry. With the release of fan favorite projects such as “The Mack of The Year” and “The New Dynasty”, Trel Mack’s support in the industry was highly cosigned by industry professionals and music fans.
Trel’s past music/projects was featured in top publications such as HIPHOPDX, YORAPS, ALLHIPHOP, DJBooth, & and even played on Philadelphia’s commercial radio station Power 99. Falling back from music, after some personal life situations, Trel Mack knows his talent is destined to be heard and to be the next music superstar. “I’m so hungry now to get back into the game after this break, my music has evolved on such a higher level”.
Trel Mack has co-founded his own label SKE records as well with popular journalist/publicist Quinton Hatfield, Q The Question. The two formed their partnership back in 2006 and with the great feedback gained from the past music, things this time around are ready to move. “Me and Q, have some big things coming and we have a very huge movement in store. Brand new videos, chart-topping music and a movement with SKE records, what we going to bring will be unstoppable.”
As far as the music, Trel Mack has been working on a new project which excites many fans and industry pros who are fired up to see him back. Great feedback has been shown from the music business with records such as “Dreams of a Winner” ft. Shaun Chrisjohn, also “I’m Still Here” ft. R&B singer Kenji Morris. “Those records show my real life story which in order to be a top stellar artist your music has to connect to the fans. Trel continues that is the huge difference with the new music coming compared to the past ones.”
With a new project coming in store, untitled as of now, Trel Mack and SKE RECORDS are next to make a run in the music business, with hit records as Trel Mack says “Inspired by Greatness”
Reverse: First off I want to congratulate you on your success and progress with “Inspired By Greatness” EP. How has your buzz been since the release of it last September?
Trel: Man it has been phenomenal, with two great videos “Dreams of a Winner” and also “No Holding Back” it’s been crazy that my music is getting exposed at a high level. From the constant love on The Source and Allhiphop.com, I’m so excited. Taking a break from music and to come back with such a great response, I thank all my fans for the love. It has me even hungrier and the work load indeed has been tuned up. Doing interviews with magazines and radio every other day, constantly in studio, daily business meetings, but at least it shows the music made an impact for all this to happen.
Reverse:What was your favorite song from it?
Trel: My favorite songs personally are “Dreams of a Winner” ft. Shaun Chrisjohn and “Still Here” ft. Kenji Morris. Those are my favorite two for sure. I love the whole EP as this project has received the most positive feedback ever in my career.
Reverse: For those who have not heard your single “No Holding Back”, summarize up your lyrics and the meaning behind the words.
Trel: The meaning behind my record “No Holding Back” is basically not letting anything hold me back in life, the whole point is no matter what happens, you got to make something happen and go hard. Which is why I said “Finally made a way for me and I dare you to try to take it from me” hahah. The song has been getting incredible feedback from the fans and even some big name people in the industry. They loved the video as well, shot and edited by Philly Spielberg, it is definitely a fan favorite from the “Inspired By Greatness” EP.
Reverse: You have been featured internationally like in Columbia, Venezuela, Spain ,Italy, and many more foreign countries, what has that done as a whole for your career?
Trel: It’s been phenomenal that my music has been recognized all over the world. A lot of that is from my partner and best friend Q The Question who I started SKE Records. Q is fluent in Spanish and with that being said he was able to have many ties in many Spanish speaking countries. Puerto Rico, Spain, Dominican Republic, Argentina, Colombia, Venezuela Q has ties in them all. Our DJ, DJ YRS Jerzy he handles a lot of international promo for us as well as he is the lead DJ for SKE Records promotional department. He has ties in France, Nigeria, Ghana, all over the world. So with Q The Question & DJ YRS Jerzy it gets insane. That’s the beauty of the network you can reach people all over the world. It feels so good to wake up and find out my song is playing on the radio in Italy or Venezuela.
Reverse: How well orientated are you with your fans?
Trel: Great, when they tweet me it makes me happy that my music is appreciated. When I have to time I thank them the ones who message me that they love my music and more. I keep up with my fans on twitter, instagram and facebook.com/trelmack. Without the fans we are nothing so it’s only right to show appreciation.
Reverse: Can you give us a leak on what projects are to come from you in the future?
Trel: Well right now, I’m working on more music and I’m working on my next project “The Mack of the Year” 2. We have gained some interest from some major labels so now it is really time to get to work. But yeah more videos is well, the next video will definitely be the intro from the “Inspired By Greatness” EP.
Reverse: What words of encouragement can you give to artist wanting to reach the levels you have?
Trel: Stay positive and WORK ON YOUR CRAFT! Also realize this is not going to happen overnight and it is a grind. This game is no joke and you have to remain consistent and be patient! Always do research as well.
Reverse: Do you have any final shoutouts?
Trel: Sure, definitely shout out the whole SKE team, my boy Q The Question, my manager Rob, also Petter Jones his mixtape “Super Saiyan” coming soon and also DJ YRS Jerzy working on more mixtapes to keep us hot, all that.
