LA-based rapper HoodTrophy Bino, who is signed to Soulja Boy’s Stacks On Deck Money Gang (S.O.D.M.G.) label, has released a new video for his track “Lavish Spazzin” featuring Spank Nitti James.
HoodTrophy Bino is a full circle rapper who blends his childhood experience growing up in the South Central LA projects into the music he writes today. He met Soulja Boy while serving time together, and the two quickly developed a friendship which later led to his signing. Spank Nitti James is a rapper from Hemet, in the Inland Empire of California, who works closely with producer Hit Boy and was featured on his recent album Surf or Drown.
From the very first notes, “Lavish Spazzin” grabs your attention with an iconic piano riff that seizes the ear. Its production is masterfully cool, a seamless sound that unfolds with an air of nonchalant brilliance. The track skillfully pays homage to a prolific era’s timeless elements, while boldly charting a course for the future. Complete with deep-cut vocals, layers of subtle yet distinctive sonics, and an addictive hook, the track is steeped in decadence. In the accompanying music video, HoodTrophy Bino and Spank Nitti are surrounded by stunning women and reveling in the rappers’ emblems of success.
Hoodtrophy Bino and Spank Nitti James met performing shows with Soulja Boy. They went on tour together recently with Blue Bucks Clan and continue to work many sessions in the studio. “Lavish Spazzin” is their latest release.
Los Angeles based rapper HoodTrophy Bino (Tadashi Sayres) creates empowering music about overcoming hardships and leveling up in life. Raised by a single mother in a house with fourteen brothers and sisters under one roof in Palmdale, California and later the crime ridden projects of South Central LA, HoodTrophy Bino (“Bino”) succumbed to the gang life that surrounded him. Finding an important outlet in music when violence surrounded him, Bino began rapping himself – first being exposed to freestyle through his older brother.
Due to gang involvement and a father serving a life-sentence in San Quentin, Bino began repeating a doomed path that found him circulating in and out of jail. During one of his short stints, he met Soulja Boy who was also serving time. The two developed a friendship after Bino wrote him a letter and gave him a bag of Hot Cheetos. Shortly after his release from jail, Big Draco reached out and signed Bino to his S.O.D.M.G. (Stacks on Deck Money Gang) label having been impressed by his determination and musical talent. Venturing into the studio soon after, they recorded their first song “Racing In Traffic” in 2021.
Bino’s music discusses his life and what he’s been through; from hard-hitting bangers like “Thuggin” to melodic, soulful ballads, like “Project Baby.” Bino’s single “Dripped in Designer” was released in 2021 featuring Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em. It’s a muted, melancholy rap saga celebrating luxurious dreams of distant islands and designer drip. “Most Wanted” is a potent powerhouse that shows off Bino’s quick-witted flow and upbeat tempo. Songs like “Project Baby” is HoodTrophy Bino’s raw, reflective look at his past growing up in the projects while “What You Got On” exudes the extravagant, lush energy that is a part of Bino’s post-fame reality. His latest single “Lavish Spazzin” ft. Spank Nitti James is steeped in decadence and skillfully pays homage to a significant era’s timeless elements, while boldly charting a course for the future.
The respect and love Bino has received from music has given him hope and encouraged him to show a better life to his young children.By reducing his sentence from 13 years to a 7 year joint suspension for good behavior, HoodTrophy Bino is a standout example of someone who has overcome insurmountable obstacles, escaped gang life, and created a better future for himself and his family. Today, he is an advocate for gang members who grow up in the hood and witness death every other day with seemingly no way out. Developing his own PTSD, anxiety, and depression, Bino knows many young people are overlooked without an outlet for therapy or a way to express themselves.
HoodTrophy Bino has opened for Soulja Boy, Tee Grizzley, Bow Wow, Snoop Dogg, Chris Brown, Omarion, Flo Malcom, Skinnyfromthe9, YN Jay, and Ohgeesy. With a new album on the horizon, HoodTrophy Bino is a prolific rapper and motivator for his generation. “I’m not here because I’m the best, I’m here because they tried to break me and they couldn’t.”
