He is also the head of many Memphis rap groups including The Manson Family and Ten Wanted Men. Tommy is considered one of the creators of trap music and has greatly influenced today’s underground sound. His music has been sampled by A$AP Rocky, Suicideboys, Three 6 Mafia, Lil B, and more. He has headlined a tour with Lil Ugly Mane, a festival in Moscow, as well as other festivals in the States sponsored by the likes of Thrasher, Red Bull and other major companies.  His long standing relationship with underground skate communities has made him a beloved figure

 

Club Music is EBM with a strong taste of New Beat, swirled around in one rather cavernous cauldron. The bass lines march, evil, cold, precise, punctuated by textures so familiar they seem to burst more from the collective pop id than any vintage electronic hardware- handclaps, record scratches, whistles, delay-soaked barks, et al. 

This is a vision of a dark, calculated 80’s, a vision that feels truer to the real 80’s-esque hell world we currently endure than any imagined past.

From Best of Bandcamp, August 2019: “This music is hard, like new wave’s seedy underbelly. It’s industrial punk that seeks to alienate the listener, not draw them in.”
