Terry Odds (b. October 5, 1980), known as I.T.C., is a rapper from the Bay Area, Berkeley, California. He was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana yet this Cajun native migrated young to the West Coast in the late eighties with his mother to start a new life. From there, he was introduced to the taste of hip- hop and the culture that it entails. It didn't take long for him to start writing his own lyrics for which his close friends and acquaintances consider him one of the best lyricists around.
“Both my parents are into music. My father was the minister of music at the church I was raised in and my mother is a singer/dancer so I was always surrounded by music. The thing that attracted me to hip-hop was the influence that music has had on me and my generation.”
