IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What city and state are you from?
T-DUBB-O: I am from St. Louis, MO. The Northside of St. Louis, MO to be exact.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What is your music background?
T-DUBB-O: My musical beginnings were extremely humble. I was introduced to hip-hop as a toddler by my Mom and fell in love with it. In the 90’s my family would gather for holidays and my older male cousins would go into the basement and freestyle all night. I was about 4 years old watching this and thinking it was the most exciting thing I have ever seen. Since that moment, I knew I wanted to rap.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Why do you want to record and release your own music?
T-DUBB-O: I love music. I will always write and be involved with music for the rest of my life. I enjoy touching people and influencing the young boys out here to be better than we were. It makes me the happiest person in the world when someone tweets or sends me a Facebook message saying one of my songs helped them get through something. The world will enjoy the music from T-Dubb-O.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What are your songs about?
T-Dubb-O: My songs come from life, experiences, and anything that inspires me. They are deeply rooted from the streets because that was my past, but also never lacks creativity. I give you the view on the world from a young man from St.Louis, MO where there is no way out. There is no way to be special.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Who is your fan base directed towards?
T-DUBB-O: A fan of T-Dubb-O can be anyone from a 14 year old kid to a 45 year old man who loves hip-hop. I have been told I am one of the only rappers who can reach the backpackers and the streets simultaneously.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: Who are your musical influences?
T-DUBB-O: I listen to the greats. People like 2pac, Jay-Z, Lil Wayne from the squad days, Scarface, UGK, NWA, Ball and G, Dipset, G-Unit, etc. I like the music from the time where it still mattered what you said.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: How would you describe your music to people?
T-DUBB-O: My music is that feeling you get when you’ve gone without eating for two days. My music is the motivation that makes a single mother or father work 2-3 jobs to make sure her children never experience the hardships they have. My music is the struggle. Its pain and triumph.
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What makes you stand out from other artists?
