"[Just hearing] the combination of lyrics, beats, instruments, and creativity made me want to be a part of the hip hop scene and I love everything Outkast puts their name to"
Throughout middle school, T-Rey performed in a number of talent shows and continued to work on his craft as not just a rapper/entertainer, but as a lyricist. Yet at this stage of T-Rey's life, hip hop was just a hobby, as he was also training very hard at his long boyhood dream to be a professional basketball player. But it was when he hooked up with aspiring Emcee/ Producer/ Ghostwriter/ Engineer/ Entrepreneur Kyle "Double" Lucas. Double soon signed T-Rey to his production company Double -Or- Nothing Entertainment and they both headed into the studio to work on T-Rey's debut "Reality".
"Working on the cd was the most fun/work I have ever done on anything" says Producer/Emcee Double, "We clicked immediately, throughout my career I have been involved in a number of groups, rappers and partnerships, but I have never created such a good product with someone. I am so proud of this record, that you would think it's mine rather than his."
Reality embodies the lyrics of a NY emcee with the production of a southern beat smith as for T-Rey finds joy and is passionate in the works of Nas, Outkast, Jay-Z, 50-Cent, Eminem, AZ and Canibus and appreciates the production of Juicy J and DJ Paul, Jazzy Pha, Timbaland, The Neptunes and Dr. Dre.
All Songs were produced and written by Double and T-Rey (Except for track #2 which was Co-Produced by Double and CPD, an aspiring production duo out of Atlanta). All songs were also Recorded, Mixed, and Engineered by Double.
The Deal That T-Rey and Double made with Atlanta Presents Entertainment didn't work out. T-Rey has gone off to school to play basketball and has been recording the ocassional track. Double has been hiting the mixtape circuit hard and released his first mixtape The Light Vol. 1 (if you would like a free copy of this mixtape please email KyleLSoprano1@WMconnect.com) Double has been working with local Atlanta Production company Soultaker Music. Be on the look out for Soultaker artist's Syd, Logic and Kinetic's album's and Double's second mixtape MR. FUCK EVERYBODY coming out in jan '04.
