Tampa, Fl rap collective Atoss Dacco are longstanding members of the PALM Tree. This October, Traplan of the underground crew has put forth his debut solo EP Don’t Play Me. With just five tracks and 14 minutes of flavor, the Florida native uses his melodic vocals over vibrant beats. Inspired by the singing styles of Lil Peep, Kid Cudi, and Drake, Traplan has manifested his talent into a strong debut solo project.

Traplan Don't Play Me

The stand alone difference between previous Atoss Dacco releases and Don’t Play Me is how Traplan sings feel good love songs rather than the hardcore underground sound Atoss has already showcased. It’s a sweet short and to the point project and can be streamed right here. The closing track “Burn Roses” features the same instrumental used by Vaboh on his single “I Never Thought You’d be My Enemy.”

Donald Trump likely does not care for or about black people. It is evident in his policies, the way he set up his administration, and the way he is currently exploiting the lunacy of Kanye “Koonye Worst” West.

You would think that his overt disdain for people of the darker hue would keep him from trying to use their intellectual property for his own nefarious purposes, but you would be wrong.

Apparently, Trump has been playing Prince’s “Purple Rain” at his rallies around the country, and it’s gotten to the point that the Purple One’s estate has reached out and asked him to knock it off.

Because really, knock it the fuck off, you orange buffoon. How dare you sully the beauty that is “Purple Rain” by using it your hate rallies that only serve the purpose of riling up your rabid, racist base, with their ignorant, non-reading asses.

TMZ reports that Prince’s half-brother, Omarr Baker, said on behalf of the artist’s estate: “The Prince Estate has never given permission to President Trump or the White House to use Prince’s song and have requested that they cease all use immediately.”

Apparently, Trump played the song at his rally in Mississippi last week, and he has played it at other rallies as well.

Trump seems to be on the bad side of other artists, who have also asked him to stop using their music at his idiocracy gatherings.

TMZ reports that Steven Tyler and the Rolling Stones have asked Trump not to use their music.

Because honestly, no one wants their work associated with this dumbass.

No one.
