TT the Artist is a force. She’s a multigenre rapper, covering hip-hop, Baltimore club, and Miami bass. She’s queer, and though she doesn’t like labels, she understands their importance. And she’s here as a leader to help all queer women of colour break into the industry.
TT is in town performing at The Rude Collective’s second anniversary, a party by and for queers of colour. When I explain that Black queers from all over the diaspora will be there, she says, “That sounds beautiful. I can’t wait.”
Whether she's running a feminist record label or painting 'Black pop art,' TT won't be confined to one discipline.
TT the Artist strides on-stage at Warehouse on Watts in Philadelphia wearing a Melody Ehsani x Lauryn Hill suit and an enormous gold chain that swamps her petite frame. She looks like she’s done this a hundred times – and she has, but this one feels special. The club queen recently started splitting time between Los Angeles and Baltimore, but she’s back on the East Coast to perform at Red Bull Music Presents: United States of Bass, with other sub-loving trail-blazers from Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New Jersey.
TT The Artist “Black Pop,” is a collection of pop art paintings, referencing commercial consumption and influence of black culture in America. The body of work borrows from advertising, meme and popular culture. TT The Artist confronts, deconstructs and challenges archetypes of black women and people of color in media by rendering and creating new images that highlight meaningful artifacts within in Black culture.
Following the “Club Queens EP,” debut music release from her new label Club Queen Records, TT The Artist is back with another feature song on HBO’s hit series Insecure Season 3. “Click Bait,” produced by Baltimore club music hero Mighty Mark will be available on digital retailers Sept 30, 2018 out via Club Queen Records .
Her name may not be a household one just yet — but TT The Artist has been here this whole time as our actual queen of Hip hop. Though others have tried to claim the crown, one listen to her newest release and one glance at the video for “Payroll” (ft. Starrz) will have you wondering why we ever even questioned her royalty.
