RVA/ATL gay rapper TRAPCRY releases live video from March Smatter show

GayRVA Staff | April 18, 2017

It’s been a few months since we heard from Richmond/Atlanta rapper and world-wide heartthrob TRAPCRY, but he’s back with a new video filmed at a show here in Richmond last month.

The video, seen below, was produced by GayRVA Editor Brad Kutner with help from local photogs Wes McQuillen  and Darian Hayes and the final product shows the raw sexuality TRAPCRY exudes naturally. Check it out below:

TRAPCRY dropped his last record, Blond Ambition, when we spoke with him last Fall. He describe the release, which features the two songs played in the video, as an alternative to the broader Black gay experience.

“There’s probably a regular amount of masculine or feminine guys, but people only see the feminine ones,” he said in that interview. “It’s extra important in the Black community because they don’t see a masculine guy being gay. They might see it more now cause of social media, but the stereotype needs to be challenged.”

While providing a different view point was a mission, it was also his natural state.

“I’m just being me and I’m hoping a younger gay Black guy will see me and say “oh, he’s just being himself” and they can do the same thing,” he said.
