Conversations with Tri Tri

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tri Tri. 

Hi Tri, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
I’m an artist. I’m from Chicago, and my grandfather was a HUGE lover of music. He played piano, and jazz lived at the core of his heart. Music has been a part of my life since I was little, and so has writing. I used to write poetry and short stories. Somehow that transitioned over to lyrics for songs. I went from an R&B songwriter to a rapper! I’ve made music privately forever but I didn’t bring it to the public until the end of 2019. Here we are now. Lol 

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It definitely hasn’t been an easy road, but I wouldn’t change the travel. They are so many musicians, so there’s a hefty playing field. However, you just have to stay true to your heart of why you do this. This is also an expensive business, so you have to work even harder when you’re self-funded. My biggest setbacks came from doing business with the wrong people… When you are new to the industry, people will definitely take advantage of you If you’re not knowledgeable. I had some major issues with the release of my first project in the people I put my trust in and it came with some failures. However, every lesson learned has made the project I’m releasing this year that much better. You just have to stay positive and keep growing! 

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
My words are everything to me. I’ve been blessed with a gift to illuminate sentences into pictures in your mind. I can provide you the words to express things you couldn’t fully formulate yourself. I can give you outlooks on things you may not have thought of. Those of us who make music are the voices of emotion. I take pride in being a Lyrical rapper. I enjoy twisting ideas and meanings of words. I enjoy touching my audience emotionally and meaningfully. I’m proud that I’m doing it because for so long, I never thought people would listen. I’m proud that people can tell me one of my songs helps them get through something. That it made them happy. I have a way with words that others don’t. My animated delivery and rhythm patterns have always separated me from others. I can slow it down and speed it up. I am a lyricist. It took a minute, but I’m really starting to believe I’m something special. 

Where we are in life is often partly because of others. Who/what else deserves credit for how your story turned out?
Honestly, music is so personal for me; I’ve never really involved others until it turned into the business portion for me. I can say the biggest thing that has kept me going is the support from the few select people who have been with me from day one. Others have always seen a vision for my talent that I didn’t. They knew I was special, and I’m so grateful they never let me forget. They have literally helped build the artist in me without even knowing. They are a big part of this!
