Unique, dif­fer­ent, and rare, ‘Ma Story of Trap’ is the new single to come from Lon­don­er RARE8-EEN. Writ­ten about the effect that pris­on had on his life, ‘Ma Story of Trap’ is bru­tally hon­est and explores lost oppor­tun­it­ies. RARE8-EEN’s optim­ism shines through in this track as he reaches for the top with a new found lazer focus and drive. RARE8-EEN explains the thought pro­cess behind this track and his new approach to music, “I knew it was time to sit and face my demons and make a con­scious decision to change because I really did hate jail. I looked happy but it took a lot out of me. It took how I was treated in the last pris­on I was sent to, to real­ize that this life­style ain’t for me.” ‘Ma Story of Trap’ has the char­ac­ter sound of RARE8-EEN’s quick and artic­u­late flow backed by a simple beat that lets the words speak for them­selves.
Grow­ing up in Lew­isham in Lon­don, RARE8-EEN describes his upbring­ing as tough but that music was a con­stant. Leav­ing home at 15, he found him­self sur­roun­ded by new music and star­ted to rap but did­n’t back him­self for quite some years. When he con­sidered his music along­side the work of oth­er people, RARE8-EEN com­ments “Every­one thinks that life is about money, their image or even them­selves. I real­ised that’s non­sense and that’s when life dra­mat­ic­ally changed for me.” This turn­ing point of real­isa­tion gave birth to RARE8-EEN’s elo­quent and intro­spect­ive lyr­ics and has giv­en him the renewed focus to make his music a suc­cess after com­ing out of a harsh pris­on sen­tence.
