New Album: Trey Lane “Here Goes Nothing”

Local rapper and all-around-great-guy, Trey Lane, has recently released his newest CD, Here Goes Nothing. The album showcases eight tracks with some of the best beats I’ve heard on his albums, and features from the likes of locals V the Noble One and A.Def, and national artist, Glasses Malone (among other).

Trey has been busy hustling lately, spinning heads while touring the region with Young Jeezy, inking a sponsorship with Jagermeister, and landing distribution through UMG. The guy has been traveling relentlessly pushing his music and I am really excited to see what great things are yet to happen for him.

 You can check out clips from the songs on his website, or go to his CD release show this Saturday (August 27) at the Orpheum Theater in downtown Sioux Falls with additional performances from Midwest Blessed, Trife Mack, and The Sound Insurgent. Doors for the all ages show open at 7pm.  Tickets are $10 in advance or $15 the day of. Physical tickets can be purchased at Ernie November’s on 41st street, both Last Stop CD Shops, and online through The CEU.

The night kicks off at 7 pm with 5-piece Jazz group, Polyphase. But the real fun kicks in at 8 pm with We All Have Hooks For Hands. I’ve been told there would be the infamous Jackson 5 cover (if only Eli could learn those dance moves), and I’m keeping my fingers crossed to hear the OMC song again. Continue reading
