Trouble also wasn’t afraid to be transparent and “raw” with his emotions, as he told The FADER in 2018.
When dishing on his Edgewood project, he acknowledged how “Hurt Real Bad” was “the deepest song [he] recorded on that mother**ker.”
“I really was crying tears in there doing that song. I’m in that motherf**ker with my shirt off, I’m off the cognac. And as soon as he played the beat, that shit just hit me off gate. I just went on in the booth, I locked in that b***h, put this s**t in drive, and for real couldn’t even stop.”
Regarding getting vulnerable with his music, Trouble said, “It’s always been like that with me. I don’t give a f**k—it is what it is.”
“I’m going to tell folk whatever I’ve been going through, bruh. That ain’t hard for me at all. I talk about my life. Respect me for how I’m coming, and if you don’t, then that’s on you. At the end of the day, I came straight raw.”
