Trill Cut has a really diverse catalogue of music. Trill Cut's music talks about ambition, community struggles, life lessons, and pain. However his single, "Trill," really jumped out and was the highlight of his songs. Trill is hard. Everything from production to the hook to Trill Cut's vocals; this song is a very well constructed song coming from Daytona Beach.
Bop: Trill Cut came onto this track with a plan to rock this shit, and he did just that. This song is hype, the ad-libs are so well placed, and the beat is JOMPIN. To be quite honest, this is a nostalgic bop; it reminds me of when Lil Scrappy came on the scene over Lil Jon's beats. Trill Cut has an energetic delivery, it is soulful and proud. "Trill" is the song you check out when you want to fully experience an artist; Trill Cut brought his personality and his vibe to this song.
Airpods Quality: As mentioned before, the production quality of this song is really incredible.

Trill Cut's vocals lay perfectly over this beat. He doesn't sound pitchy or muffled. The drops within the beat give the verses so much personality and play really well out of your speakers. The hook of this song along with the synth sounds make for such a fun chorus between verses. This is such a clean song to listen to.
Knock Value: "Trill" KNOCKS. Put this on and turn it AHP! The 808s, the snare, the synths, all make for a really entertaining song. I will admit that the song is a bit long at 4 minutes and 44 seconds, but it is still a full and powerful song with a lot of knock. If you're looking for a song to make your speakers bounce, "Trill" is the song for you.
Misogyny Meter: There are a few "b*tches" that get thrown around this song, so be mindful. Much like most song where male artists identify themselves as "kings" or "bosses," it is often at the expense of somebody being called a "b*tch" here and there. And while we still have work to do within the hip-hop community, what can be said about "Trill" is the meat of the song is not dehumanizing to women or other demographics. The song is about self-empowerment, which we all deserve to experience and amplify. This is a pretty standard song with a phenomenal feel. The energy in this song is pretty addictive and easy to get into.
