Meet Lil Trunk

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lil Trunk.

Hi Lil, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
My name is Lil Trunk. The way I started rapping was as a joke by freestyling in the school cafeteria during lunch my junior year in high school. I realized that I really enjoyed it and it brought me a good feeling. Music started to become my version of therapy. I started off with zero equipment. So I decided to get a job as a busboy and get paid minimum wage. All of the money that I earned I used towards basic equipment that I needed to pursue music. One day I sent a message on Instagram to a rapper with around 50 thousand followers asking for a feature. He responded by saying contact my manager. His manager just happened to realize the potential I had and decided that he wanted to help me with my music. His name is Versatile G. He has helped me get to the place I am today. And I also have to thank God for all of opportunities he has given me in my life up until now.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
My career so far has been a struggle with a budget. I was in high school and I played soccer after school everyday. So it was hard to find a job to earn money for music. I had to use money that I would get from birthdays and holidays.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I make music. I specialize in hip-hop and rap. I’m known as Lil Trunk all over New Jersey. The thing I am most proud of is my song getting an article on THISIS50. What separates me from others is my determination to prove haters wrong. My whole life people have been doubting me, I’m here to prove them wrong that I can make it in the music industry and I won’t stop until I do.

Any advice for finding a mentor or networking in general?
The best advice I can give is for finding a mentor is to DM @versatileg1 on Instagram. He knows everything about the industry and has the tools to get you to where you wanna be. Versatile G is my mentor and manager; he has helped me with building connections and creating music.
