Trapo: The Lemonade Stand Interview

Decatur, Illinois artist Trapo is somebody who I have been a fan of for some years now. I first got familiar with Trapo in 2016 when I was put onto him by (I think) my older brother Eric, and I instantly was a fan of his unique sound + style. I met Trapo not too long after that and he eventually would crash at my apartment from time to time when he would record in Chicago, so we inevitably became better friends. Aside from that though, I was a huge fan of Trapo’s music for quite some time, he was easily one of my favorite artists out of the midwest. At some point a year or two ago, Trapo abruptly announced that he would be retiring from hip-hop, and he seemingly disappeared for about a year. He was off of social media platforms, a lot of his music was taken off of Soundcloud + other platforms, and plenty of Trapo fans like me were just left, confused. Earlier this summer, Trapo came to Chicago + I invited him to the Lyrical Lemonade headquarters for a brand new interview, his first interview in years. Obviously I had plenty of questions for Trapo, I asked him about many topics that I was curious about including the sudden disappearance, but I won’t spoil it for you here.
