Biography

Between Inglewood & Rancho Cucamonga lies the Los Angeles suburb of West Covina, the 626, current home of West Coast emcee Trek Life. But as a kid, Trek grew up running the streets of Southern California’s most notorious areas, rolling out like most his age to pull chicks and hit parties. Dress codes were strict as gang banging was in full fledge war mode and police brutality was at its worst. It was then that his Pops moved East to West Covina to protect his family and Trek had his first experience with culture shock - mixing with Mexicans, Chinese, White folks and Philipinos. From ‘96-‘99 Trek got caught up in the typical bad decisions of youth and decided to raise up and progress.

Throughout school, rap had played a prominent part of Trek’s Life, along with those he grew up with, and so he began to move toward a serious career in rap. By 2004 he had released his first official single on vinyl, Hardwork b/w Maintain Excellence via Timeless Music. Then he dropped “Mind Right” produced by Evidence of Dilated Peoples b/w “All Times” produced by DJ Rhettmatic on ABB. In May of 2006 he released his debut album “Price I Paid” and garnered glowing reviews from industry standards like OkayPlayer which rated his project a well earned 89 saying that Trek delivered “feel-good soulful Hip-hop with an energetic and confident flow similar to that of Black Thought .” His project was also filled with a who’s who of up and coming producers including Babu, Kev Sakoda, and DJ Khalil.
