Wild Sacramento, California hardcore revivalists Trash Talk had been playing together for two years before their debut recording, Plagues: Walking Disease, was released by Rumble Records in 2007. Taking influence from American hardcore and speed metal, the group included vocalist Lee Spielman, guitarist Garrett Stevenson, bassist Spencer Pollard, and drummer Sam Bosson. Steady touring and frantic shows won the guys a well-deserved buzz as friendships with the right people gave them another leg up on the competition. Prior to their next two albums (a self-titled 2008 outing and 2010’s Eyes & Nines on their own Trash Talk Collective label), they released a 7" that featured guest vocals from Keith Morris of Off! and Black Flag fame. A friendship with the fellow skaters and weed-heads in Cerebral Ballzy and Odd Future helped ensure the guys a home on Odd Future Records for 2012’s 119, which expanded their fan base significantly and made them the first non-hip-hop act on the OF label.
Antwon is one of the most promising artists to rise out of the Internet-oriented "cloud rap" pseudo-scene that's gotten a lot of online attention in the past few years. His trick is to make music that often feels inward-facing and borderline-myopic into a socially open, even joyous experience. In other words: His shit is just that much more fun than everybody else's.

There's retro-rap, and then there's rap that captures the exuberant spirit of the early '90s. Antwon differentiates himself by adopting a lo-fi m.o. On standout "Living Every Dream," it sounds as if De La and Q-Tip's "Roller Skating Jam Named Saturdays" was disintegrating. His rap style is casual, and not the most versatile or dexterous, but that's much to its benefit; he communicates his ideas in funny, punchy lines, which is more than enough.
