Biography

Troy Garland, better known by his stage name Tito-6, is rapper/producer and Chairman and CEO of SoSay International. Born and raise in Flint, MI on March 28, he grew up in an impoverished neighborhood known as the “Pierson Hood”. The youngest of five children to Motown songwriter/ music producer Regional Garland and his wife Gloria, the budding artist flourished in a household full of musicians and singers which sparked his interest in numerous genres of music. At a young age, Troy discovered his love for music and ability to create it as he and his father spent time learning to play instruments and write music.

At the age of seven, Troy’s parents divorced and without a positive male influence in the home, he started to become intrigued by the streets. By age 14, like many around him, he succumbed to trafficking and distributing illegal substances. In hopes of saving her son’s life, Troy’s mother began to send him away for periods of time to Long Island to visit family.

It was during these trips that Troy fell in love with Hip-Hop and with the help of his oldest brother, he began to write his first rhymes. But even with a natural talent for sophisticated wordplay and rhyme schemes, he did not forgo his “Tony Montana” aspirations and continued to get more involved in the drug game.

While engaging in his illegal activities, Troy still found time to connect with his father to produce and record his first demo which found its way to legendary Hip-Hop artist Rakim.
