Hate If U Want
Born and raised in Texas, Trey aka Trepaper grew up listening to a variety of hip hop. Among the artists that influenced the future rapper were Big Daddy Kane, UGK, Too Short and NWA. Surrounding him were a lot of his friends who, like him, wanted to rap. But without the money to buy any beats or to pay for a studio to record in Trey decided stack his money and purchase his own studio equipment. At age 18, Trey moved to California. Settled in the Bay Area. Armed with a Triton keyboard, a MPC 2000 beat machine, Pro Tools, and a microphone Trey, released his first album "Tha Way I See It Iz How I Spit It" in 2003. Illustrating tales of sex, drama, drugs and women, TrePaper was able to showcase his skills on the board by producing 12 out of 14 tracks on the album. Later on that year Trey, through a mutual friend, linked up with a bay area artist by the name NUMP. Nump was an engineer who had heard Trey's music and wanted to begin working with him. In the beginning Trepaper's passion was making beats, but that transitioned into something more. Rapping. Together, Trepaper and Nump formed a group called "Them SuperVillians" and in 2005 they released the album "Thiz Iz How It's Supposed To Be Dun". Later that year Trey was also featured on Nump's solo album "The NumpYard". In 2007, he released his sophomore album entitled "Hate If U Want". Influenced by Rap greats such as Nas, TI, 50 Cent and Jay Z, "Hate If U Want" is sure to give his audience the sound they've been waiting for.
