[Monroe Country, PA] Making his return on NikkiSiixx.com, we have hip-hop artist Uncle Trey bringing us his project nostalgianticipation. We recently just featured his singles for MOJO & JUST A SUMMER LOVE, and doing a reaction video to those visuals as well. Uncle TreY has been working non-stop to perfect his latest project. And within the first listen I was already hooked, the thirteen track journey takes us in the perspective of TreY growing up and dealing with obstacles. nostalgianticipation contains a slew of 90’s samples that gives you that nostalgic feel to it.
Here’s a bit of his backstory before we get into the review. Uncle TreY is a Bronx born rapper currently residing in Monroe County, PA. Avoiding being conformed to a specific hip hop genre, he bases his music off of everyday life experiences and creates songs using profound & anomalous concepts. Having garnered a strong buzz on the internet & the local underground scene, he’s now looking to take the next step in hopes of reaching a larger audience… the world.
For nostalgianticipation, I’ll be reviewing my favorite and most stand out tracks on the project. Uncle TreY made it difficult, considering there’s a lot of solid work on it. So far my choices are: Uncle Hyde, Acknowledgement, Lost Cause, Mojo, Just A Summer Love, Excuses, and Just Living.
[01. UNCLE HYDE] Instantly, I would say this was the best song on the project and the best way to start it off. With Uncle TreY dealing with his dark side, it sounds like it got the best of him. From the choice of production by TreAces, and the flow Uncle TreY presents. It’s hard not to jam out to this one.
[02. ACKNOWLEDGEMENT] Its time to take notice, Uncle TreY has been working hard towards making it in his music career. People will be hating, and be more in disbelief considering his making it on his own. This track was produced by The Chase.
[05. LOST CAUSE] Even though this track has two songs in it. But I’m really feeling the beginning of it with Lost Cause. Straightjackits is cool, but Lost Cause really caught my attention. Uncle TreY talks on topics about Black Lives Matter and the disruption of politics. Lost Cause has this hard-hitting bass with smooth flow by Uncle TreY.
[08. MOJO] is perfect for the summer time. Uncle TreY talks about how he got his confidence back. He tells us a story how things started and how it turns out, with a specific girl. And how they even try to come back in his life after so long of not communicating with them. The hook is catchy, and has me singing along.
[Nikki Hears It First] Episode Nine:
[09. JUST A SUMMER LOVE] takes us back on a summer love he’s reminiscing about someone he hooked up with. Throughout the track Uncle TreY kinda focus on a specific listener, the one who he experienced that love affair with. Uncle TreY’s flow is on point and the content is very descriptive.
[11. EXCUSES] This song blew my mind. The hint of R&B by singer Ballad on the vocals, and Uncle TreY opening up about relationships and some stories. Really gives that 90’s R&B vibe, that you gotta vibe out to this one. I find this track might be a favorite for the lady listeners.
[13. JUST LIVING] Uncle TreY sounds amazing on this track. He’s able to maintain his flow on beat, and is super real with his lyrics. At the moment he’ll be interested but then lose interest. The women may feel confused but those are how things are. With Uncle TreY main focus is his music, the women he’s with might get it twisted. This track gives you a funky late-night production by Gold Haze and Rich Rescigno. Harmonies and hook by the beautiful Mariam.
This concludes my review of Uncle TreY’s nostalgianticipation. For the thirteen track journey, Uncle TreY took us on a ride. The project contains a lot of solid material, good vibes, and tough topics. What did you guys think about nostalgianticipation? Which were your favorite tracks?
