Artist Bio

Over the past decade the artistic flow and meaning behind hip hop has slowly died off. Mainstream artist filling bars with punch lines about flashy jewelry, naked women and Miscato; it is easy to say that the lyrical MC is far out dated.
Luckily for TRUE hip hop junkies, an MC by the name of TyQuan Thomas has breached the scene and has recaptured the sound of hip-hop through his musical story telling.
Born on April 15th, 1988 in the Southern parts of Sacramento, California, TyQuan was raised by his grandmother and mother Chepelle Thomas. Being the oldest of eight siblings in a fatherless home TyQuan faced adult responsibilities at a young age, and sought after writing music as an escape. His writing has since been influenced by the death of his cousin, Deantwan Thomas, and he has slowly transformed himself into a lyrical story teller.
“I really started taking my writing seriously after the death of my cousin Deantwan (De) Thomas. I had a talent and a voice and I realized that it could be snatched at the blink of an eye and I wanted to share my story with the world.” --- TyQuan Thomas
Also influenced by hip hop artist NAS, TyQuan Brands his musical flow on realism. Representing the struggle as he speaks on issues of importance in his home town of Meadowview, California where family and friends suffer from hardship.
“I feel that my music is more like the original hip hop, when lyrics really meant something, when videos and album covers were more than a picture or entertainment but a message. My music is for the blue collar hard working people because I am one of them.” ---- TyQuan Thomas
With all of the raw tools in place, TyQuan Thomas is patiently learning the ropes while waiting for his time to speak to the world. It has been a long time coming and the dedication and determination that were put in shows in his delivery and according to Buzz Hip-Hop magazine “He has the voice for hip-hop.”
