It’s been a minute since we’ve heard anything from Trav Williams; 11 months to the day, to be exact. That’s when Trav dropped his controversial Illmatic tribute album, IllTravis. Now signed to HiPNOTT Records, Trav Williams is ready to make up for his absence in 2010 starting today with the release of his 6 track EP with producer Moonchild called Better Late Than Never.
Presented for free download by Potholes In My Blog and KevinNottingham.com, Better Late Than Never showcases Trav’s lyrical skills in a way that we haven’t seen since debut album, The Trickle Down. As heard in the EP’s first leak, “Hometown Heroes,” Williams shows a passion for his hometown of Ft. Lauderdale, FL. The EP pairs Williams and producer Moonchild for the first time and the chemistry definitely works.
In other news:
Trav plans to release one more free EP, as well as the followup to his 2008 mixtape, The Learning Curve, before his official HiPNOTT Records release, The Elixir, in November.
