After the rapper died, people in the hip-hop community, like Mike Will Made-It, Gucci Mane, Rae Sremmurd, Meek Mill, T.I., and Jermaine Dupri, paid tribute to him.
Trouble, whose real name was Mariel Semonte Orr, exploded onto the hip-hop scene in 2011 when Duct Tape Entertainment released his December 17th mixtape. The music video for the project’s most popular song, “Bussin,” which showed the horrors of rapper from Atlanta Zone 6, gave most people in the United States the chills.
Trouble went to jail from 2008 to 2011 and again from 2017 to 2018. When he got out, he signed a deal with Mike Will Made-Ear It’s Drummers Records and Interscope. In March 2018, he put out his first album with a major label, Edgewood. Drake, The Weeknd, Quavo, Fetty Wap, Low Down Dirty Black, and other artists all took part in the project.
Trouble told Billboard in 2018 that his music is about him. “That’s all the stories from my life. Most of the time, it doesn’t matter to me if the n—a just got into the game and is smoking hot. I won’t get on any bandwagons. I’d rather have a real relationship with someone before we make music together.”
