Treyy G: Interview
Treyy G is an up and coming producer hailing from Colorado by way of Cali. He’s one half of the Hiphop duo TKG, which is how we first discovered him. One of his most recent mixes “Trumpsta” with Contiez has garnished him worldwide recognition which you have to admit is well deserved. From his catchy hooks to eclectic mixes, his reputation is that of a hit maker. To us it seemed like over night he was on every EDM flyer in Colorado, supporting some of the biggest names in the Trap game. We truly believe that it’s only a matter of time before he’ll be headlining shows all over the world. Actually…we’re willing to bet on it. Get to know him…
