Rap may be (as Chuck D once famously remarked) “CNN for black people,” but that description far from exhausts its potential; on new single Due West, presented in a remixed form courtesy of Has-Lo, Cali repper Trek Life demonstrates that it can also be the History Channel, dropping some serious knowledge regarding black migration patterns in and around the Los Angeles area. Digging this edu-taining remix? You can find the original version of this cut and much more on Trek’s Wouldn’t Change Nothing, out now via Mello Music Group.
