News: ART A Reasonable Truth to Release New Hip-Hop Music Video “The Recipe ft. Ayem”

It’s around the holidays nearing a close to 2018 and ART A Reasonable Truth (Anthony “Rory” Tran) is planning his new music video, second single to Centerpiece called “The Recipe ft. Ayem”. Though the subject matter doesn’t really have to do with food per se, the video itself showcases the lyrical undertones of one being such a “recipe”, one of the more parallel coorelations to the concept album.

In the video, ART states that a lot of medical issues happened to him while on this journey to the point of a sleep study. Scientists are shown taking samples of him and building “versions” of him to control as their own “recipes” and brainwashing them to adhere to technology and their “plan”.

The idea has similar relation to Anthony Tran’s latest directed short film QK-Hilltop (coming very soon) that deals with real-life government experiments in the 1950’s including MKULTRA, mind control, cloning and more.

Directed by Tyler Mason of Fallen Light Films in Ohio, the video is hoping for an end of year/early 2019 release.

ART A Reasonable Truth Premiers “SoCal Waves” as New Single With Upcoming Music Video

It’s about that time! Summer is in the air and the ‘Centerpiece’ has released another anthem, this time, showcasing beach and west coast vibes by the ocean that will take you away on a vacation. “SoCal Waves” originally premiered in February 2016 with the My Vacation In LA season 1 finale in a demo form.

ART A Reasonable Truth produced an album with Grammy board and multi-million dollar studio-taught mix and master Wendy Levin of D.M. Gremlin Studios with an instrumental by Billy Burton; the collaboration and oceanic sounds are dreamy and chillular.

Listen to “SoCal Waves”

After releasing 3 singles prior including “Centerpiece”, “Get Down With It!” and “Ready”, “SoCal Waves” is planned to be the first music video of a visual album, but unlike artists like Beyoncè and Todrick Hall who release it all at once, the “Trippy Tran Man” plans to release the videos out of order and at different times before all the pieces of the ‘Centerpiece’ concept is complete. Trippy.

Filmmaker Anthony “Rory” Tran on ‘Let’s Make A Deal’ Game Show the Day After Wayne Brady Wins Emmy

Director/Producer Anthony T. Tran

Welcome to the first day of May! Today, we have a mini-interview with Anthony “Rory” Tran, director/producer/writer of Trippy Tran Films, LLC. who also just released a debut pop/hip-hop/electro album under the name ART A Reasonable Truth.

Trippy T just made his TV network game show debut on Let’s Make A Deal hosted by Wayne Brady on CBS yesterday on 4/30/18 being the first episode to air after Mr. Brady took home an Emmy for best Game Show host. Talk about epic timing!

Watch the episode here: https://www.cbs.com/shows/lets_make_a_deal/video/f_YwUZ74_UBF26PWmF2YwZR4CVqrCLhJ/let-s-make-a-deal-4-30-2018/

Costume: Gladiator. Anthony Tran and Wayne Brady on CBS.

What was it like being called to play?

It was a rush! Knowing that once you’re called, you have to make your entrance down those stairs, grab the good luck from the people waving at you and then talk to someone you’ve grown up watching and laughing to (Wayne Brady; Whose Line Is It Anyway?), it was completely surreal. I still can’t believe it happened and I’ve seen it on the boob tube with my own eyes!

You recently had surgery?

Yes, I had Lasik eye surgery done just a few weeks prior. My right eye, which still is bothering me with only 10 feet of clarity in it, felt bruised and I was hoping after that I could still make the taping when I had audience tickets.

Have you seen this game ‘CA$H COUNTRY’ be played before?

Nope! And that’s even after all the episodes I have watched… so I don’t know if it was new, but it sure was new to me. When I was up there, my senses were all over the place because you want to show respect and kindness and also make quick decisions as people are shouting and telling you to do things. It’s nuts! In the end you have to go with your gut instinct.

I picked Tiffany because her face was on California where I have been for 4 years now and her name is also the same name as the main character of our short film Duality which later became Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown. So Tiffany it was for me, though now looking back, I maybe should have showed Ohio and Cat some love. It’s still awesome that I traveled across the country and it’s officially represented here on national television.

What was it like to see the prize you missed?

It was a really great prize and though I’ve been on a yacht every year for New Year’s these past 2 years, those sunglasses looked amazing and it sounded like a fun time. I just knew after paying for Lasik payments and producing my album and upcoming film works, that taking the money was the way to go, no matter how small. And it was a cool amount. I’m so fortunate to have been able to play with the #LMAD team! Wayne, Jonathan, Tiffany, Cat, Chris – everyone was so amazing.

Wayne Brady just won an Emmy for “Let’s Make A Deal” and the day after, your episode airs. Everyone is watching in the industry. How do you feel?

Funny thing is, I was driving to visit my friend Joe in Apple Valley (in the high desert) and a truck passed me with a map of the United States on it around the time the Emmys were airing. I felt a sense of something and forgot about it being scheduled to air the next day on the 30th of April since it was actually shot last September.

It feels legendary to be the last new contestant the day after everyone is talking about it and watching it. I hope someone out there is willing to take a chance with our team and help us achieve the goals we want with our films, music, media and art. Otherwise, we will continue to make our mark with Trippy Tran Films.

ART Premieres Hip-Hop Anthem “Ready”

When a tracks bangs such an anthem that could easily hype any sports event, be a song for going out – or even chillen, and just relating to being ready for whatever comes next, this “j-amthem” will make you want to hit that repeat button and the vocals will indefinitely get stuck in your head.

In contrast to the previous 2 singles released by ART A Reasonable Truth so far, “Ready” is a bouncy hip-hop jam with such flare and pizzazz that it stands out with a self-confidence motivational message:

“Check your back, I’ll attack/Yeah I’m ready for it/From the bottom to the top/Yeah I’m ready for it/When you know what you do/Yeah I’m ready for it/Yeah – ‘Cause I’m ready for it”

Artist Anthony Rory Tran is ready to show the world what he can do with music and talent with another banger by Aaron Byrd – the man behind the beat of the “Centerpiece”single. Tran surprisingly let the mix into an Instagram advertised mixing house in New York for this track in particular wanting to collaborate with different engineers on the album for a sense of diversity. The track was mastered in Long Beach by D.M. Gremlin Studios who also worked on a majority of the tracks for the debut album Centerpiece – which is coming to all music major platforms February 9, 2018.

“Ready for something bigger than you can see/Something that can take you and believe”

Is this the new 2K18 banger? Comment your thoughts below and be sure to let everyone know – who’s ready.

“Gotta Be Free ft. ART” Music Video Releases Today

A wild ride was in store after Master T.C. & The Visitors collaborated with director Anthony “Rory” Tran (ART A Reasonable Truth aka Trippy T) on his upcoming psychological thriller Obliquity: Imagery of the Unknown in 2011 by contributing the thematic single “La Dee Dah”. When other songs like “Gotta Be Free” were also submitted, ART felt like something could enhance the intro. He wrote a rap, recorded it and submitted it to the band who then liked it so much, that they got it mixed and mastered by a music connection at Atlantic Records – and soon after announced it as their newest single with the music video premiere here on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. 

The video was shot at the infamous Ohio State Reformatory prison where Hollywood movies like Shawshank Redemption, Air Force One and the new Sylvester Stallone movie Escape Plan 3 was filmed right after MTCATV. Lil Wayne’s “Go DJ” music video was also filmed there. ART flew from Los Angeles back to his home state to perform his part last August. The video features Victorian costumes and a jailbreaking storyline.

ART Premieres Club Song “Get Down With It!”

Happy New Year’s Eve everyone! The new club banger by ART is sure to make lovers of dance music go wild as we bring in 2K18 with “Get Down With It!” Put on your dancing shoes and get ready to get down with it!

Stream/Download “Get Down With It!”

The instrumental beat is produced by Sonanze and has “Centerpiece” singer ART on the track laying some dirty vocals chanting:

“Get down with an altered feeling/It comes and goes on/Get down with a “won’t-stop” feeling/I know I can lose control/Get down with a monster feeling/Get down and let it go/When we begin the chain/You gotta get down on the dance floor!” 

“Get Down With It!” is a party anthem for those who like high energy dance tracks with smooth breakdowns and wild sounds that you can’t help but jump up and down to. I mean, at least my friends and I can’t stop listening. And we like “Centerpiece” but damn – this may be even better. It’s that good. 

A Reasonable Truth AKA Anthony “Rory” Tran has worked with (and plans on working with more on the an already planned second album) musician Sonanze AKA Mikhail Sinenko on this EDM anthem who also created the music tracks to “Unfreeze (2012)” and “Shimmer Of Longing” amongst many others – unlike the recent release of “Centerpiece” who was made by beatmaker A-Rhyme also known as Aaron Byrd.

ART Premieres New Single “Centerpiece”

The new single just dropped – and it went right down your chimney. Happy holidays! With the current state of pop music, just like the film industry, there’s been a lot of hit and misses with overplayed reboots and lackluster content (and lyrics) that seems to cater to the American dollar rather than the beauty and craft of art with the real gems lying in the underground. A new surprise has arrived: introducing ART.

Play and get the new single “Centerpiece”.

Here at Trippy Tran Films, we believe in inspiring, motivating and making positive moves in mainstream media. We are pleased to present the new single from singer, rapper, lyricist, multi-genre artist Anthony Rory Tran who goes by the name of ART – which also stands for A Reasonable Truth, and has originally released music under the pseudonym Trippy T

Fans of pop, hip-hop, cruising-style, electronic infused music will be pleased to know a song called “Centerpiece”  is a life-jam calling everyone a centerpiece with lyrics: “Look now you’re the centerpiece/Saying everybody get like me”.

ART’s debut album CENTERPIECE is set for an early 2018 release and will have 11 original songs.

The music industry is mentioned in verse 2: “Octacables wrapped around me like a label/When it takes hold own the heart and let go” stating that octopus tentacles acting as cables can hold the ‘centerpiece’ tight and you may even go to the degree of interpreting those lyrics as people being constricted by the idea of money rather than the craft.


ART’s debut album of the same name is set to drop early 2018 with more singles to be released. What are your thoughts on “Centerpiece” as a new hit song? ART will also be featured on the new Master T.C. and the Visitors “Gotta Be Free” video set to drop in January. Hear that song here.
