With artists rising on the hip-hop scene, it is easy to let one go unnoticed. HIP Video Promo introduces an artist that in fact won’t go unnoticed—I Am Triggy. True Stories Productions presents an individual who makes clear statements through the art of music with classical rap elements and R&B styles. His song “JFK” promotes I Am Triggy’s outlook on life, which is that power can sometimes make or break you. In his astounding video, which features him inside the shoes of the beloved president, sets forth an idea that I Am Triggy isn’t going anywhere.
Triggy started at an early age, getting bitten by the performance bug at the age of eight when he accompanied his father into a local recording studio and immediately impressed a room full of seasoned veterans. He was immediately dubbed Baby Trigg, and he’s been working hard since. His song “Ice Cream’’ has been played on his MySpace page over 1 million times along with over 70,000 spins on YouTube. Perhaps most notably he was a composer and performer in the viral sensation “My Jeans” by Jenna Rose which garnered him national exposure. Somewhere along the way, though, Baby Triggy began growing into a man, which is why he now goes by the name I Am Triggy as he enters his prime.
In his newest track, “JFK,” I Am Triggy introduces a balance between music and power. We see the artist dressed up and mimicking a president, much to the likes of JFK. In the beginning of the video, we are introduced to the song with an old picture reel and black and white images. What we can conclude from “JFK” is that to be a powerful hip-hop artist, you must follow in the footsteps of the greats. Overall, it is with evident influence that successful music is recorded, and I Am Triggy’s video is a perfect example for the power of words and lyrics.
In time, hip-hop artists create masterful flows of energetic beats and hypnotic lyrics that stand as poetry. I Am Triggy is a rising hip-hop star who captures and then possesses his major influences in ways that make his music stand out.
