PREMIERE: Trapo “She Moved On” Video

Nuance and intimacy are two things that are sometimes difficult to grasp; both come with age and experience. But for 18-year-old rapper Trapo, neither are out of his scope of understanding—he takes to both very well—and it’s refreshing and reassuring. The Madison, Wisconsin, native’s latest project, SHE, which he calls “a complete therapy session,” is authentically his, an unfiltered journey through the highs and lows of his relationships with women. SHE also already shows Trapo’s growth: While his vocals keep the same aggressive flow, he aesthetically shifts toward more upbeat pieces, rather than some of the darker sonic motifs he’s clung to before.

Today, we’re premiering the first video from that project, for the aptly titled track “She Moved On,” a song about heartbreak. “A boy loses his girl to another guy, a guy who is richer and can provide whatever she needs. So instead of fighting for her, I put together an organized home invasion,” Trapo says. It’s a pretty identifiable storyline, to say the least.

In the video, by videographer Cody LaPlant, we see the young emcee gathering his friends to rob the house, or as Trapo sings, “The perfect night to call the guys, I’m thinking hit a stain.” The four of them don black masks and slip in through an open window. Trapo, gun poised, searches the house for what ends up being a safe. He picks it up and all four run for the getaway car, just as the homeowner pulls up.

Indeed, with this storyline, Trapo might be revealing his youth—robbing a house seems like something a naive person might do—but sometimes you go to extremes when your heart is broken. And that’s something we can all relate to.
