Interscope Records/ Listen To The Kids artist YSB Tril looks to stampede his way into stardom with his new “HOTSHOT” mixtape. The 13-track project finds Tril, the melodic wunderkind floating through tracks with ease. And when he is not crooning, Tril looks to save the rap game with his steely wordplay, as proven on his sticky intro “Hero.” His confidence remains top-notch on the swaggering tune “Hot Shot.” The bouncy anthem captures Tril in his element: punching in a sure-fire hook with clever rhymes. Tril has garnered success with his previously released singles “Ain’t the Same” and “Touchdown,” featuring Bankrol Hayden as each record amassed over six million streams globally. The former became a popular song in the sports world after the NBA and Toronto Raptors used it before tip-off during the regular season. As part of his mixtape release, Tril will perform today “All Da Action” and “Hotshot” as part of the Toronto Ultra halftime show.
So far in his career, the rising rookie showcased his versatility and rock-solid work ethic, amassing his streaming totals to a whopping five million independently. Last year, Tril earned him a performance slot for NBA #2KFest celebration. Tri’s rapid ascension equally enthuses publications. GrungeCake lauded the young hyphenate for his “undeniably catchy, singsongy hook and fast-paced verses” on “Do It Most.” Flaunt Magazine highlighted Tril’s action-packed video “All Da Action” and dubbed him “a force to be reckoned with.” Lyrical Lemonade applauded Tril for having a “natural and effortless flow you cannot teach.”’
