St.Louis area artist Tremier is no Stranger to the Midwest Best competition being affiliated with the 1st winner ever of the competition and current host for the Midwest Best “Zamm 2 Turnt.” Knowing the rules of the event & seeing 1st hand what it takes Tremier was determined to leave Studio 618 with $1000.00 promoting the event everyday through various social networks.
His Midwest Best Journey was filmed by his cousin & camera man Loud Bass Productions watch his Midwest Best journey, performance, and behind the scenes footage and commentary from the young artist.
