†rouble ∆ndrew linked up with Mike of UZi and Drew Toonz to create an actual work of art for the video, "Wasting My Time." The track is off of Trouble's upcoming Gucci Ghost EP which drops sometime next month, and the video takes place in "1985, No Work City" where Trouble Andy and Samol' Toonz battle it out in the ring.
The illustrator Drew Toonz said Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat are two of the world's biggests art icons and that this was just his way of getting in the ring with them. Uzi is a art collective (music x video) made up of myself Mike of Uzi and Gabe of Uzi are Uzi, an art collective who have been working with Trouble for a few years. They recently came to NYC to do some music and visuals for his Gucci Ghost project.
"I been working on this new Gucci solo project at home in Brooklyn in between doing shows, creating my signature sunglass line "MAGS" for Electric Visual, collaborating/curating for other artists projects (Theophilus London, Gangsta Boo, Riff Raff), designing, working on a animation series with Drew Toonz called "No Work City", running TRBLEGVNG ent and walking my dog," Trouble told us in an email.
"I wanted to wait till I had a solid body of work and visuals before I released any of my own new material, so me and Mike of Uzi teamed up and worked pretty much every day for a year building out new ideas and tweaking existing stuff I had on deck," he said. "I just kept putting it all on ice and stock piling so I could drop new shit all year long.. The Gucci Ghost project is a three part EP coming early Jan 2014. Its Gucci Time!"
