    Jelly Roll

    Southern Rap

    Checking in at six feet one inches and over 350 pounds, not to mention covered in tattoos, it’s impossible to ignore Jason “Jelly Roll” DeFord in a room. And that’s before his booming country-twanged voice enters the conversation. “I’m just a regular fat piece of white trash with some real people that relate,” he loudly explains with a wide grin, sending everyone else within earshot into riotous laughter. For the 27-year-old Jelly, a nickname he picked up from his mother and kept to honor an incarcerated friend, humor has always been a way to cope with the struggle he would go through in life. Growing up in the rougher areas of Nashville, TN, particularly the Southside city known as Antioch, Jelly got an early taste for street life and fast cash. “I’ve always joked that Antioch is the cultural melting pot the government uses to test how different ethnicities live together in a lower and middle class area,” He laughs referring to the city’s racially diverse, albeit economically bleak make up.Captivated by the gritty rhymes of local legends such as Pistol, Quanie Cash, Haystak, and Kool Daddy Fresh, it wasn’t long before the music would mirror Jelly Roll’s personal life. Catching his first case at age 14, Jelly would endure an ongoing cycle of incarceration until 2009 which would include intent to distribute cocaine charges and multiple probation violations.Continuing to soak up the sounds from southern artists such as UGK, 8ball & MJG, Three 6 Mafia, Chamillionare and Paul Wall, it was during these particularly dark times that Jelly would turn to crafting his own rhymes as a therapeutic means to deal with his trials and tribulations: “My music is all based on emotions and stories from my life as well as people around me. I want to convey to people the power of faith and perseverance and I hope that it helps them to find a light in whatever darkness they may be going through in there life.” In the summer of 2010, Jelly Roll’s “Pop Another Pill” collaboration with Memphis luminary Lil Wyte would go on to garner over 1 million YouTube views. This viral sensation lead to the SNO group album Year-Round released on Hypnotized Minds in April 2011, a project executive-produced by Oscar winners DJ Paul and Juicy J. Jelly continued his successful 2011 campaign by releasing Gambling On A Whiteboy 4 during the summer and combining his talents with Haystak for the successful Strictly Business joint-album in November. His unique combination of introspection, melody, and punchlines has struck a chord with an ever-growing nationwide fan base and continues to impress. In between new projects, Jelly still finds time to volunteer at and provide financial backing for the local SuCO Boxing & MMA gym to help provide disadvantaged youth with a place to take part in positive activities. “My ultimate goal is to touch and reach people and have a voice of influence with the youth of today, he reveals. “I know that sounds like the opposite of what I’m aiming for by the content of some of my bigger songs, but the real purpose will shine through in the end. Helping people and life in general is a marathon, not a 40-yard-dash.” Spoken like someone who has truly been through the fire, its evident Jelly Roll is on a path to even greater acclaim- and that means a greater change for the world

    Underground Rap

    Bringing massive dynamics and versatility to rap & hip-hop music, underground superstar & independent solo-artist Trenton P has become a major player in the St. Louis scene. Through years spent dedicated to refining his craft and taking control of his career with smart moves and swift lyrics, Trenton has just released his third album So ILL to an incredibly solidified, supportive & encouraging fan-base in addition to a whole ton of brand-new fans worldwide.

    Born in 1991, it wouldn’t be long before Trenton would go on to discover a deep connection and natural talent for music at an early age. Listening to some of the best-of-the best and gaining influence from artists & bands like Eminem, Tech N9ne, Luda and Maroon 5, young Trenton P began to create his own rhythms & rhymes and put his mind to pursuing a dream of a lifelong career in entertainment & music.

    Testing his skills where it matters most - right on stage in front of the fans; Trenton established a reputation of excellence in front of concert attendees in St. Louis that spread larger with every performance. His charismatic & electrifying performances and his lyrical-flows & intense freestyles stunned local crowds - and it was their support and confirmation that led Trenton P to take it all to the next level and bring the music straight to the people.

    First entering the studio in the winter of 2011 at twenty years old, Trenton P grabbed the mic and began to immediately feel at home. Comfortable and professional but always hungry to learn and be the best, he was already recording solo records by 2012 and had released his first project "Can You Hear Me Now" and the hit single “I’ll Be The Best”. The instant buzz surrounding his new music hit the streets hard and word began to spread even more quickly about the intensity, passion and all-out entertainment you could find in Trenton’s music & live shows. By 2013 his fan-base had massively expanded in growing support for his creative and clever twist on rap & hip-hop - and by 2014 he started breaking into new markets with the release of his second solo project, Remember The Name.

    And according to internet music-charts and reactions from all over the globe, the people DID Remember The Name; they did through the music and they did through his video-work. Involved in all-aspects of his music & career and driving his music forward with full-speed, Trenton took on a ton of radio-interviews and continued a long-time collaboration with filmmaker/videographer HollowWear. The result of his hard-work & effort showed itself once again with videos from Trenton P racking up tens-of-thousands of hits and finding a staggering nearly quarter million views in total online. The buzz and impact of Trenton P was undeniable.

    In full-on beast-mode - Trenton P has just put out his most incredible set of tracks to-date with the release of his third album So ILL. With his signature style, approach and edgy, thought-provoking lyricism he’s become a sonic-force in the rap-game armed with an unstoppable work-ethic determined to be the best by outworking the rest. So ILL has since gone on to quickly impress critics and fans alike through the intensity of the vocals and the massively-dynamic beats Trenton P put out on his new record. Continually challenging himself and pushing himself to be the absolute best around - Trenton P makes sure that his best work is his current work each time out, and So ILL is the sickest set yet.

His message is that no matter how low you can get, if you remain positive good stuff will come back tenfold. He decided to go public with his music after the passing of his mother, she had always believed in it, so he figured it was a way to continue her legacy. He started doing local dive bar shows around the southside at the beginning of March 2015, he later took 3 shows back to his hometown as well as doing showcases around central Missouri. That December he released "The ComeUp" his first 5 original track cd. Where the buzz got him to open for artists such as Lil Wyte and soon to be Krayzie bone. His inspirations range from tupac to breaking Benjamin, from the St Lunatics to Machine Gun Kelly, hopsin, Chris Webby, and yelawolf... This list could seriously go on for days... Having said that this is only the beginning of his career and looks forward to his future in this industry. Music is meant to be felt not just heard. The is his #thecomeup
