Biography

Growing up in the slums of Detroit wasn’t always easy for T3; but some odd years later, the word Slum couldn’t sound more beautiful to the seasoned rapper.

As a freshman in high school, T3 free styled everywhere from the cafeteria to his grandmother’s basement, with his friends Jay Dee and Baatin. There they found a unique chemistry and later formed the hip hop group Slum Village.

After putting together a 22 song demo called Fantastic Volume 1 that landed in the hands of Q-Tip, The Roots, D’Angelo, and other industry leaders, Slum Village signed their first record deal with A&M Re-cords in 1998.

Shortly after their first official album, “Fantastic Vol. 2,” was finished, A&M’s rap department was closed and Slum Village was back to square one. But T3 was kept busy, by learning how to make beats, after being urged by group member Jay Dee. With an SP1200, an S950, and an MPC3000 beat machine, T3 sat down and learned the fundamentals.
By 2000, Slum Village had run into a series of group and label transitions and was down to just T3 and Baatin. T3 was still determined that this was only the beginning of his career, so he began work-ing on side projects managing the young rapper Elzhi, creating the compilation album “Dirty District,” and still working hard at perfecting his production skills.
