Trek Life will be rocking the Dues Paid stage at the seventh annual Paid Dues festival! A mainstay of the LA Hip-Hop scene, Trek makes music with many talented names: Babu, Evidence, Oddisee, Kev Brown, Bishop Lamont, Khalil & J Bizness to cite a few. The road to Paid Dues for the West Covina, CA native began with high school freestyle battles in Shadow Oak Park, stints with several group acts and a healthy accumulation of personal hours spent on stage and in the studio. From challenging Myka-9 as a teenager to a battle at Project Blowed, coming of age rocking the local circuit and as an ambassador of the West Coast sound from Hawaii to Heidelberg, Trek is an energetic tour de force every time he touches a mic.
2010’s Everything Changed Nothing paired Trek‘s engaging delivery and thought-provoking lyrics with a heavy-hitting sonic landscape created by DC native Oddisee. A notable placement on ESPN for his single So Supreme, along with accolades in the LA Times and other media outlets pushed his career in a positive direction, setting the stage for the successful remix project Wouldn’t Change Nothing and 2012’s highly anticipated Hometown Foreigner project with Duke Westlake. His upcoming performance at Paid Dues acknowleges the effort that he has put into every rhyme and every show.
