New York rapper Trav showcases his harmonious vocalized bars on latest release, “CAIN.” The accompanying music video takes place in the late night streets of the city featuring a brief cameo from fellow rapper, Meek Mill. A red-haired woman plays the song’s piano melody as Trav lays each verse with an effortless charisma.
“CAIN” has a mellow tempo consisting of bass and piano keys. The hip-hop beat fills the gap between the rapper’s crisp staggered bars. Each verse follows one right after the other. He references the biblical story of Cain and Abel to convey deceit amongst brothers as he raps, “You ain’t hear what Abel did to Cain.” Despite the heavy autotune of his voice, the rapper’s lyrics contain substance and perspective. Using metaphorical lyricism, Trav creates a gospel for the streets.
Boasting co-signs from major names in the industry, Trav continues to make waves in hip-hop. Emerging from the Queens borough, he is the next heavy hitter out of the east coast and it is only a matter of time before Trav is a mainstream name in rap rotations.
