“Fine your truth, discover ours…”

Trew Culture is a culture collective of musicians, artists and producers. Founded by BD3, FKAjazz & Justin Swiney, we are bridging the gap between Hiphop & Jazz bringing to the forefront everything “trew” (true) to the culture, from the production of music, fashion, and the arts. Stay tuned & connected for updates and upcoming events here, on our social media platforms and by signing up for our newsletter.


FKAjazz/Noah MacNeil JAPAN Tour


Spanning 14 days with 6 major performances throughout Japan (Tokyo, Nagoya, Yokkaichi & Kobe), FKAjazz, Noah MacNeil & Yoshiki Yamada take the Trew Culture sound to the other side of the globe. The trio spent the major of the tour collaborating with various local & international artists in Japan, including percussionist Oswald Kouame (in the above pic) and drummer Ryo Noritake. This marked the first tour of FKAjazz in the area and a bridge to soon bringing the whole Trew Culture collective to Japan and the greater Asian region in the future. - TC Team

Take A Sip Of BD3’s ‘Green Juice’

2019 will be here before we know it, and everyone will soon be on their "new year, new me" vibe resolving to get their lives together. But why wait until then? Emcee BD3  has the soundtrack to get you right together right now with his song "Green Juice" featuring Edson Sean. Taken from his latest album Time.Era.Period, as the title suggests, "Green Juice" is all about living healthy but it's about loving healthy, too…

"Put your body on this green fast," BD3 raps on the chorus, encouraging us to drink our veggies. "Wheatgrass shot going down it's a booster / Cucumber nine inch put it in / And drink it down so it's good for your skin," Edson Sean spits on one particularly flirty verse. He continues to entice with his words, rapping, "I got the best thing on earth right here / It's for your body and your soul, my dear."

There's more heat where "Green Juice" came from to be found on BD3's Time.Era.Period, which dropped in September and is produced entirely by Justin Swiney. BD3 and Swiney not only collaborated together on this project but together with FKA Jazz they've founded Trew Culture, described as a culture collective of musicians, artists and producers. Their mission is to bridge the gap between hip-hop and jazz and bring everything “trew” to the culture to the forefront. READ FULL ARTICLE
