To kick off the first Music Monday Artist Spotlight we have a rapper from the city of Detroit who goes by the name T Villa. He has been acknowledged by Maybach Music Group and NBA player Jamal Crawford. People are recognizing his talents and he is doing it all without a major record deal. Inspired by his hard work and determination, he has coined the phrase G.M.A.O (Grinding My Ass Off). With over 5,500 Twitter followers and 352 YouTube subscribers, he has created a hot buzz in the streets. Check out more about T Villa below.
T Villa is an independent artist from the west side of Detroit, MI. He was raised primarily between the two neighborhoods of Schoolcraft Ave and 7 mile Rd, where he learned a lot of life’s lessons the hard way. The lack of a consistent male figure put the burden of being the man of the household on his shoulders at an early age. Due to his frequent moving and trouble in the street and in school, Villa has attended various schools in the city, state, and country where he met and interacted with various types of people in and from different places of the world. Overcoming the obstacles in his life, Villa is able to put his thoughts and experiences in to words, and make progress in his passion for writing music that he had since the tender age of 8. In Dec 2011
T Villa made it official that a career in music was what he wanted to pursue by launching his independent label Heavy Made Ent, and shortly thereafter in Feb 2012 he released his first independent mix tape “Detroit Made” hosted by Dj BJ. Since then T. Villa has released 3 more independent mix tapes “Paper View” hosted by Dj Bj which made Dj Tampa Mystics “Desert Storm Radio’s Top 10 mix tapes” after just four days of being released. Paper View also provided his hard hitting single “Count It Up” that caught fire in Detroit and over Charlotte airwaves. After a brief 4 month stint in the county jail he released his 3rd project “Say No Apologiez” hosted by Big Dog Blast and The Missin Link. Most recently in 2014 T. Villa released G.M.A.O “Grindin’ My Ass Off” hosted by The Missin Link and Dj Cassius Cain.
