After making a name for himself while attending the historical Grambling State University and releasing FREE Barabbas and Trilliam
in 2015 and 2016, respectively, Aha signed with Reach Records and released his first mixtape, Trilliam 2
. It peaked at #3 on the iTunes Hip-Hop/Rap charts and cemented Aha as one to watch. “Momma House
” turned heads everywhere, taking social media by storm, entering Spotify’s US Viral Top 50 chart and receiving airplay on BET Jams. Put simply, Aha did what he came to do: capture our attention with a message of hope, strength, and non-conformity.
Enter Trilliam 3, Aha’s highly anticipated 2017 mixtape to complete the Trilliam trilogy. From start to finish, there’s a passion that shines through and arrests the listener’s mind and heart as Aha grapples with questions of faith, equality, social justice, and his role as an artist with a growing platform. “Trilliam 3 is the climax of how I've been feeling about multiple things over the last couple of years,” Aha says. “Especially the politics of being a successful black male under 25 in America. It's something I've been digesting lately and it's definitely spilling into the music.”
