Oakland’s Trey Coastal Use A Video Game To Show How Real Life’s Consequences Are (Video)
The Oakland, California trio known as Trey Coastal have a knack for storytelling. For their “R1 R2 L1 L2” visuals, the West Coast collective get pixelated and take us through a retro video-game journey through their hometown.
Producer Rye Mann, plus MCs Philip Bank$ (a Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reference) and Cam Moss have taken in 2017 with their latest offering to the music scene with two EPs, No Lay-Ups (Side A) and No Lay-Ups (Side B) (embedded below). The projects include their singles “Polynesian Sand” which see’s the group cruise down the dirty Lake Merritt in their hometown and their animated video for “R1 R2 L1 L2.”
The Cali’ collective formed their crew after they connected in high school and pursued their career under the name “StoryTelling Records,” inspired by Outkast’s late ’90s single. As the trio enhanced their craft, they held tight. They began to hone in on their first project and took on a new alias, Trey Coastal.
They’ve begun to work on their third EP which they plan on releasing before the end of the year.
