Music Monday 2.18.13 Evan Trent a.k.a. E. Trent

Up-and-coming artist E. Trent is storming the scene with his creative blend of R&B and Hip-Hop. This 24-year-old Virginia native hopes to inspire others with his beats and his bars. The UxU team had a chance to catch up with him to discuss his music and his grind.

Trent’s love for music and art started at an early age. Before he was writing ciphers, he was an artist and even began classes at the Art Institute of Washington. However, he found his way to the studio and incorporated pen and paper in a different craft. Since then, it’s been history.

As a singer, rapper, and songwriter, E. Trent values the importance of great lyricism and makes it a point to emphasize it within his own lyrics. He looks up to the artists Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, and Biggie for their words and creativity in their music.

His mixtape  Let Inspiration Find Everyone (L.I.F.E.) is Trent’s introduction to the world. His lyrics are honest, original, and play the foreground to an array of laid-back beats.

Trent’s hard work and perfectionism limits the amount of singles he releases at a time, but all of them are gold! Don’t expect too much from this artist anytime soon. He is a firm believer that greatness can never be rushed. Until then, listen and download  Let Inspiration Find Everyone (L.I.F.E.)  at

E. Trent will be performing March 2, 2013 in D.C. at the Turntable Restaurant & Disco. If you are in the DMV area, definitely check him out and show some love. He’s also on InstaGram and Twitter UxU fans, so #follow #follow #follow ASAP.
