Three young guys just having a good time, straight out of Decatur, (GA) where it’s known to be “greater,” Travis Porter sat down with me and let me in on their style, swag, moves and inspiration. The three young men also known as “Three Live Crew, because of their rock star lifestyle,, has been in this music game for five years. Street Execs first signed artist, their unique sound can be attributed to their love for the 90’s music and artists such as Outkast, The Hotboys of Cash Money, Master P, and the No Limit crew.
“We are walking art canvases,” said group member, Ali; which I found to be profound especially since nowadays music, art and fashion are so intertwined. The group plans to venture into fashion, and is working on cultivating a look that is authentically their own. When asked what their favorite song was to perform, they replied, “Pretty much every song on our new album,” which was set to have already dropped. The sound of this new album has a lot of energy, which they are known to bring, but what make it extra special is that they believe this is the best body of work they have created thus far. “We have grown,” both Quez and Ali said, as Strap nodded in agreement. “We’ve gone from boys to men and this sound is more us than ever before.”
If they had to pick one favorite off of their current project, it would be “Damn,” featuring Bankroll Fresh, which can be heard on Soundcloud, along with their recently dropped song titled, “Turn Up.” The group talked about their tour experience and how they have visited every single state in the U.S. except Maine, which they plan to knock off their list soon. They have toured over sees to countries such as Germany, where they performed for the military troops. They also recently did a show with Young Jeezy and are looking forward to performing on the west coast again, in Cali, where their music is also widely popular and they receive a lot of love.
Despite their fame and success they are as cool and laid back as anyone else you would meet from Atlanta. In their spare time they still like to do regular things, like chill, play video games, go to Top Golf, and you may catch them one day at the drive thru at McDonald’s or Wendy’s, ordering a milkshake. Their musical diversity includes a feature with Diplo and some EDM.
“Turn Up” definitely displays their creativity and diversity, with that 90’s feel they are fans of. If you are looking for Travis Porter you can find them in Oregon next, and maybe they will perform their number one requested song, “Hey Ladies.”
