Coca Vango released his Motivational Purposes Only mixtape earlier this year and now he’s back with an official music video for his “Yesterday” remix featuring Trouble and Jacquees. Directed by BPace Productions.
Trouble Is On A Roll
After creating one of the best projects of 2016, Trouble has spent most of the year promoting his superb standout Skoobzilla mixtape. Consistently releasing videos and performing his high energy live shows throughout the southeast, it seemed like Trouble was simply riding the wave of well-earned success. That couldn’t be farther from the truth.
Trouble has been working with everyone from Shawty Fresh to Metro Boomin; C4 to Mike Will Made It and more. While Skoobzilla made many aware of Trouble, he’s been an established street artist in the south for a few years. His 2015 project #ZayDidIt – which was Executive Produced by Zaytoven – sparked the current growth spurt for the Atlanta street artist and saw him developing a sound beyond the stark haunting music he’d created in his first mixtapes.
Now we have the latest work from Troub & Zay titled “Who You Kiddin“. The uptempo bass-heavy bouncing track frames the portrait Trouble paints with the lyrics. Menacing & witty; celebratory & lesson giving – it all sounds like fun if you’re not paying attention as Trouble snarls: “I went from a chain-gang cell to a f***** jet/Went from talking bout it to bringing my Mom a check. I went from showing love and a n**** being unappreciated/To saying f*** a n**** he got a hoe heart and you’ll never make it. P****!”
The streets of the Atlanta underworld are ruthless and dirty and grimy. Trouble is a diamond shining among the refuse.
Look for the full project #BIGGTROUBLE to drop before the year’s out. Right now enjoy the latest from one of the most authentic voices in rap today.

Keemotion & MI Visions are back behind the cameras on this Spiffy produced track, as Trouble speaks on the ups & downs of his everyday life.
Never afraid to share his own struggles, Trouble raps about the love & support of relatives, along with the stress of providing for family, snitches taking friends down, malicious rumors that he has to ignore and more.
Trouble is one of those rare artists that can truly channel his pain & emotions through his music. It’s not just one big party, there are responsibilities that come with being a breadwinner and provider. I’m sure many of us can relate.
2016 could be Trouble’s year
The veteran Atlanta rapper has had the streets’ attention for a while now. An unapologetic product of Atlanta’s criminal underbelly, Trouble has risen above his circumstances while keeping both feet planted firmly in position as a representative of his environment. Never one to sugarcoat life’s harsh realities, Trouble uses this video to show what many do for survival or in the name of flossing.
This visual, shot by Keemotion and The Picture Man captures a robbery in progress as Trouble enlists fellow Atlantan & street poet Spodee for backup literally & lyrically. Spodee has been building up his own momentum with his Trench Music series after a not so amicable split with Grand Hustle last year. In true fighting spirit, Spodee hasn’t looked back to wonder what might have been, instead rushing forward towards his future the same way they rush towards the money in this robbery/video.
Showcasing a classic back & forth flow, the pace of the music is in perfect stride with the video as we move through the Atlanta streets with Trouble & Spodee to hit this lick. The high energy and fast paced song is from this May’s ‘Skoobzilla’ project . “Traffic“ will definitely appeal to those who are fans of gritty street tales, a topic that both Trouble & Spodee know all too well.
