Trillville: Making Them Cuts
The alternative? Keeping it trill. At least thats what Atlantas own Trillviile believes. Instead of keepin it real, Don P. aka Corleone, Dirty Mouth aka The Gucci Man, and Lil LA aka Lil Atlanta...Keep it Trill: a culmination of whats truth and whats real.
Being from the ATL where everybody is doing it...Howd you guys hook up?
DON: Dirty Mouth was writing raps in the 9th grade and I liked his raps
DM: Keeping it Trill in the city, the hood and in the state. I got my name from spittin dirty rhymesMusic has always been a part of what I do. Even in Morris Brown college where I majored in music production. I was doing mixtapes and my thang and then I hooked up with Don Phe was producing and such and such in the ATLLA was doing shows, promoting and we just clicked.
DON: Right, rightthats basically it know what Im saying, I went to Clark-Atlanta UniversityI was working on a Mass Communications major.
LA: I met both of them in the 9th grade tooI started promoting for themthen Don found out I could rapand we been trill ever since.
Howd you get your deal?
DM: We was like underground and people was feeling us and they knew it, but it was hard. Then Warner Brothers came into the picture and we did a show for Vincent Phillips the CEO of BME.
DON: I called Vincent and we set up a meet, got the CD in his hands which he passed on and they saw us perform and we cut the deal. Thats a little shortwe put in mad work, but, thats basically how it went down.
LA, you were promoting parties right?
LA: Yeah, we was doing "hood rich shit"you know passing out flyers, throwing parties errywhere, grinding and getting our shit out. Whatever we did it was packed houses, cause we worked and we gave the people what they wanted Trillville is a voice for anarchy and rebellion. Our focus was and is on the movement of young people in high school and college. Trillville is like Black heavy metal.
DM: We all (pronounced: ahwl) been about the grind since we was yea highlil kids off the block, jumping off the porch young and puttin in work, you feel me.
Where did you obtain your tracks when you first started out?
DON: I was doing all the trackssee, Trillville wasnt even a group at the time
DM: We were working together and in the studio, but
DON: Errybody at the time was working on they own solo albumIt was just my label at the timeTrillville Entertainment and Dirty Mouth was our lead artistLA had a solo album tooBut, I did all the tracks and we came together to do Neva Eva and thats how Trillville was basically born with that cut.
LA: Trillville started because everybody else was being real, so we decided to be three times as real. Trillville is any city, any hood, land any state thats trill about representin they shit!
How did Neva Eva come to be?
DON: When we hooked up with Lil Jon and we worked Neva Eva it just clicked and we realized what we had
LA: We just clicked and when we did showsit showed!
