The Social Experience......Helping the Unsigned Artist Get Heard!!!
Inking his first deal at the age of 19, TC’s career started with independent record label, No Category Entertainment (NCE), under the mentorship of its Chief Executive Officer and Baltimore native rapper, Da Ster. New on the rap scene, as an up and coming artist, TC featured on The Comp, a mixtape released by NCE in the early 2000s. Following his tenure with NCE, TC teamed up with close friend, Sandman Negus, to start their own independent record label, Rebel Kings Entertainment. While studio hopping through Hollywood, this Crenshaw District duo met and began working with rapper, singer, producer and music engineer, Excel Beats. In collaboration with Excel Beats, the duo started recording a mixtape titled, Extras Vol. 1.
Unfortunately, before finishing their mixtape, both TC and Sandman Negus were shot and hospitalized, putting their project on hold. The following year, with momentum rapidly building around Extras Vol.1, TC was arrested and sentenced to six years in prison. While incarcerated, TC lost his father, his grandmother, and his close friend, Sandman Negus. The losses threw fuel on TC’s already burning desire to become a legendary rapper. He immersed himself in studies of Philosophy, English, History and various disciplines of Science to enhance his scope of content and his songwriting skills. After being released, determined to master the craft, TC enrolled in the Independent Artist Program at Musicians Institute in Hollywood.
Regaining his freedom and claiming his independence, TC started his own record label, becoming Chief Executive Officer and the first artist of EarHustle Entertainment.
