Many artists struggle to find their identity in the rap game, and TC is no exception. Coming from San Diego, a city not known for its musical stature, TC has been grinding since the age of 18. Known for his witty punchlines and story telling, his goal is to help push San Diego to the forefront of hip hop. With his new project “Blacc Sheep” coming soon, he hopes to do just that. “There’s too much talent out here for the town to keep getting overlooked. All we need is a little more unification and support and I know we could do big things as a city. Everyone needs to just put the bs to the side and get it moving” he says.
What started off as all fun and games in class back in the fourth grade, ended up becoming a passion for TC. “I remember in class we were supposed to be doing work, I’d be writing verses for fun. Then i realized like damn, this sounds straight so i kept at it. It wasn’t till i was like 16 when i finally jumped in a cypher tho, and everyone liked it. So i recorded my first song and never looked back” he says.
In 2006, when TC moved back to his hometown from Chicago, he linked up with a group of friends which would then become the rap group, M.T.E., Mecca Town Entertainment. Then in 2008, after their high school graduation, they began to perform and make appearances at local bars and clubs. Due to their popularity and packed shows, the group started opening for well known artists including; Nipsey Hussle, Glasses Malone, Dorrough Music, andTrey Songz, to name a few. But, Because most of these performances were held at at 21+ venues, the group was often unable to stay after their set.
After a few successful years with MTE, the members decided to begin their solo careers. Still reppin MTE, in 2012, Tc dropped his debut mixtape “New Beginnings Volume 1”. Over the years of building and refining his stance as a solo artist, Tc dropped Volume 2 & 3. Now working on his 4th project, “Blacc Sheep”, he hopes to put his team on the map and show the game what they’ve been missing.
