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.”
