Despite them divorcing, TRAETWOTHREE’s parents both imparted spirituality on their son while also encouraging music. Throughout middle school, he followed in his father’s footsteps by learning to play the saxophone. As such, he listened to everyone from Gerald Albright, David Sunborn, and Candy Dulfer to Tank, Tyrese, Erykah Badu and of course, The Isley Brothers. At 16 years old, after discovering Drake, J. Cole and Nipsey Hussle, he picked up his first used microphone and downloaded Pro Tools. Although he spent countless hours writing and recording in his bedroom, it was a chance encounter that eventually changed everything.
While working a part-time job at Dick’s Sporting Goods, TRAETWOTHREE helped out some members of team Ncredible with Air Jordans and sparked conversation. After listening to his demos, they invited him to the studio. Fast forward three months and he met Ncredible Entertainment founder Nick Cannon, who eventually brought him into the fold. A series of tracks including “4am In The District” and “High Tec” caught the attention of [email protected] label head, James McMillan which led to the current deal he has.
He pays homage to Los Angeles, where he was raised through both his music and his name (TRAE = 3, TWOTHREE = 23: 323 LA area code). He presents an unheard and unseen vision of his hometown with a combination of dusky R&B , hip hop swagger and West Coast spirit which will be heard on his forthcoming 2022 Ncredible / [email protected] / Atlantic Records debut, ‘Out The District.’
