Tray Tray is an emerging artist from Chicago, Illinois. Debuting in the late 2010s, he established his presence in the local hip hop scene by showcasing numerous guest talents throughout his two full-length albums, 2018’s Born Legend, and its sequel, 2019’s Born Legend II. This year, Tray Tray steadily released a handful of singles, with the latest being perhaps his most noteworthy of all – “Blow Some Down,” featuring Billboard-charting hip hop star Future.
Released on Future’s Freebandz label, the single begins with his chorus, which includes a shout-out to Tray Tray and a slew of the label’s other acts. Tray’s smooth, yet direct vocal tonality takes charge on the verses, with allusions to aggressive, gun violence-laden imagery that was popular with contemporary hip hop of the past decade. The percussion from the instrumental accompaniment emits similar throwback vibes as well, featuring jagged, snappy hi-hats and kicks that support a dynamic, reverb-tinged synth melody. While this track may seem much more condensed as compared to his other material, its substance is still present, and the guest spot from Future has earned the song its well-deserved traction.
