CEO Trayle gets the spooky season vibes more than most and he’s keeping up with the theme with a slasher film inspired video for his new single, “I Love You, But…”.Produced by DiorMadeIt, Evrgrn, and A3, “I Love You But…” is a slinky and aqueous trap instrumental, combining fluttering synths and skittering hi-hats to provide the atmosphere for Trayle’s real talk.”I Love You, But…” is the latest single off his upcoming tape, HH5, the fifth installment of his popular Happy Halloween mixtape series, which drops on 10/31 via Do What You Love, LLC/10K Projects. See below for more info on the project. After singing with Gunna‘s label earlier this year, Trayle continues to turn heads with impressive releases. Check out his latest down below.
The upcoming mixtape features some of Trayle’s most expansive production to date, with contributions from Dun Deal, OG Parker, Go Grizzly, Trauma Tone, and Trayle’s frequent collaborator Stribb, among many others. On his fifth annual Trayle keeps the Halloween theme going on his songs, using his sly wit to present himself as a nightmarish figure to haters and opps across the globe. Featuring a guest appearance from FastMoney Ant, HH5 arrives on October 31st via Do What You Love, LLC / 10K Projects.
“I Love You But…” and HH5 continue a busy year for CEO Trayle, arriving weeks after Vier, a four-track EP released in July alongside a Q&A with The FADER. The title of the EP translates into the number four in German, a number with mythical and historical significance in Trayle’s life–beyond being the source for his explosive nickname C4. Nine years ago, on July 4th, Trayle suffered seven gunshot wounds as he successfully fought off an attempted home invasion. Trayle survived, but he suffered emotional scars that he still processes every day. The rapper explored his trauma and expressed gratitude for the little things on his recent single “July The Fourth,” the EP’s closing track. Vier followed in the wake of Trayle’s 8-song mixtape The Collection, home to highlights like “Of Course,” the tape’s closing track.
