Seel Fresh Trife Life
- Words: Max Herman
- Label: Rapstar
- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
The Trife Life LP has been circulating the streets for over a year now but still serves as a solid representation of Seel Fresh, the “unemployed rapper kid” from the southwest side of Chicago. While this MC doesn’t have the most distinct voice, his personality pops on animated anthems about his inability to keep a job (“Employee of the Month”) and uncontrollable alcohol consumption (“Drinkalot”). Beyond just making upbeat joints about his vices, though, Seel ably breaks down his unstable persona on the funky Memo-produced cut “Psychosis.” Until Seel’s new album drops later this year, Trife Life remains worthy of rotation.
