Who Is Chucky Trill’s Father D of Trinity Garden Cartel?
Chucky Trill’s dad Darrell was the lead member of the boy band Trinity Garden Cartel.

He was quite active on it with his other members, Da Herb Man, Ice Water Slaughter, Sinister Sam, and Bigg Tyme.
Before Chucky passed away, he mentioned his father and his contribution to the rap scene before the 90s on a podcast. It was not really talked about then, but after his death, the curiosity around his father went ten folds. He explains his childhood in the particular video and how he was greatly influenced by both his parents.
Initially, Trill lived with his father on the north side of the country. However, he had to move his mother to the South due to his father’s legal case. Trill said that he still could recall how his father’s studio was across the street from his elementary. Even at the age of seven or eight, he called his father his favorite rapper. He further introduces his cousin Gator who was a singer. So, basically, he got to experience the best of both worlds.
Unfortunately, Chucky was murdered last year, due to which his family was left alone. He was shot early on March 5 along I-85 south close to Jimmy Carter Boulevard, according to Gwinnett Police.
During the morning commute that day, the shooting caused several hours’ worth of lane closures. The victim was discovered by the authorities inside a stopped car by the side of the highway. After being transferred to the hospital, he passed away. According to the police, Detiege was shot at least once. In the car with the victim were other passengers.
