Two of hearts
The power of a quality team-up can’t be understated. From the Hart Foundation to Jordan and Pippen, putting together a cohesive unit can help an individual achieve greater success than on his or her own. Two amazing rappers who have not found the mainstream audience they probably deserve have taken note of this and combined their efforts. Starlito (who briefly was affiliated with Cash Money Records) and Don Trip (2012 XXL mag freshman who until recently was signed to Interscope) first united in 2011 for “Step Brothers” (inspired by the Will Ferrell/John C. Reilly film). The tape proved the two to be a classic tag team, with Trip playing the bruiser and Lito injecting humor and personality. RedEye emailed with the guys to get an insight into the life of an independent act and to get some advice for young rappers of today.
