TBC is an up and coming hip-hop crew from the Midwest that refreshes audiences with creative lyrics, a sick flow, and original beats (manufactured by TBC In-House Producer Triple CCC). The crew’s name is an acronym for Thorough Bread Clique and refers to the pure bond between these brothers. The group operates like a family, mainly because it is one. Most of the band members are actually related, and those who aren’t are kindred spirits that are treated with the same respect and loyalty of a brother. The true essence of hip-hop is the art of spoken word, put to 808s and bass. It is meant to take listeners on a voyage through storytelling and deposit them in an alternate reality. The band is influenced by artists such as Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Ludacris, Eminem, Nas, and Andre 3000. Although they respect the talent, drive, and business sense of these artists; the group has its own unique flavor that can’t be compared to many other acts. Their tracks explore the journey from boyhood to manhood and draw from their experiences as young men in a bachelor pad. It is the hip-hop equivalent of Animal House. TBC does not make tracks that are nothing but mindless chatter hidden behind sick bass lines; rather, they tell stories and use the music to light the path. Members of the group include Triple CCC (rap artist and producer), Tee-C (rap artist), JD (rap artist), ADot (rap artist), Ethrax (manager and assistant producer), Lil Pacino (rap artist), RaRa (rap artist), and Kelo (rap artist). Members of the group have been close since childhood and grew up almost as brothers. TBC has recorded many tracks; but finally decided to make music a priority in early 2010. Since that point, it has been music non-stop- Beats with cereal, lyrics with lunch, and recording sessions with dinner. It has been a long time coming and now TBC is finally ready to make its debut to the world. There is no doubt that this phenomenon will catch like wildfire, and it could start here.
