Podcast Episode 185: Trajic Montalvo

Welcome Hip-Hop Artist, Trajic Montalvo (Andres Alexander Montalvo). He was born in Miami, Florida, and moved to New Bedford, Massachusetts because, as he says, he was, “surrounded by death by the time I was an early teen and found a way to get through my everyday struggles and pains.

Trajic fell in in love with music. He has continued to write and rap at every chance he is presented with. Today he is releasing music consistently on all platforms. He also provides music videos on YouTube & more. As of late, he has been donating clothes and merchandise from his We Attire By Trajic Montalvo (WABTM) brand at PACE (People Acting in Community Endeavors) in New Bedford, Massachusetts while hoping to be more involved with the city and the surrounding communities.

Trajic’s stage name is a testament to his early teenage years and is a testament to his immersion in hip-hop writing, rapping, and recording. His releases are found on YouTube, Spotify, and Apple Music. His journey which started in adversity and has brought him to secure a space in hip-hop has been embraced by his adopted community.

And although there have been challenges, his passion for music has never faltered. Trajic continues to be successful and carve out a niche in the South Coast’s vibrant and expanding hip-hop scene. He was recently featured on 24HIP-HOP. Trajic speaks with The Artists Index’s cofounder, documentarian, and podcast host, Ron Fortier, about his art, life, and journey. This episode was recorded with Zoom. The Artists Index uses Zoom to accommodate our guests’ schedules and to allow them to remain in the comfort of their homes, especially those who no longer live on the South Coast of Massachusetts.
