Artist: T.R.3 Ft. Self Provoked & Jon Swaii
Genre: Hip Hop, Rap
Location: Atlanta, GA
Magnetic Atlanta-based rapper and artist, T.R.3 is back at it, dropping a new single and video for “Vices & Devices.” It’s the latest single is string of bangers with long-time collaborator, respected SoCal producer Ariano.
“Vices & Devices” is a true East meets West joint, with T.R.3 teaming up with Bronx’s Jon Swaii and SoCal’s Self Provoked. The three artists are kindred spirits, each harnessing a lyricism heavy with intellect and purpose far beyond their years. Aptly named, “Vices & Devices” sees the trio reflect on the power of their own vices and the inner will to control them. T.R.3 flexes his singing chops on the hook, reminiscent of his previous single, “Light Harvest.” Self Provoked dishes his verse with the effortless flow and polished rawness that have garnered him a fierce following among fans, while Jon Swaii’s delivery channels the same versatility and unfiltered passion that landed him a spot on Red Bill Music Studios’, “The Cut.”
Backed by Ariano’s stripped down production of simple drums and ethereal sounds, “Vices & Devices” is a track that draws the listener in and doesn’t let go until the final bar.
Directed by T.R.3, the video for “Vices & Devices” is evidence of the multi-faceted artist’s growth and coming into his own aesthetic. The visuals have a stripped back simplicity which allow the words to penetrate the listener’s mind without being a distraction. There’s a slight cosmic vibe to the video, almost like a reflection of what it may feel like to be caught in the high. The of the video focus falls directly on T.R.3., Self Provoked and Swaii, each of them channeling their own vices is some small physical way.
