Bishop3rd000, birth name Adam Maurice Tatum, is a Houston-based MC who was born in Longview, Texas. Bishop3rd000 grew up in East Texas, a historical area that helped define the sounds of Blues, Ragtime and also birth Boogie Woogie in the early 20th century. On any given day, 3rd and his 2 sisters were enriched with a variety of musicians ranging from Parliament Funkadelic to Roy Ayers all the way down to Jodeci. At a very young age, Bishop was introduced to a phenomenal entertainer that would have a huge impact on him by way of a movie titled MoonWalker. Michael Jackson takes the throne for being one of 3rd’s biggest inspirations, but it was the raw and edgy sound of hip-hop that reeled young Bishop into the game of bars. 

Although Bishop was exposed to drugs, guns, violence, and prostitution living on the east side of Longview, his parents gave him an essential upbringing. His father expanded his mind with a Pan-African centered education and a profound knowledge of self. His parents helped create a Pan-African organization in Longview that assisted with historical preservation and self-awareness to neighborhoods in the city that were ignored by city officials. It was Pro Black activist and scholars that broadened his mindset tremendously and instilled self-pride and love for his people. His father also exposed him to comic books and anime so these elements combined with his love of music helped mold Bishop3rd000 into the artist he is today. While other kids his age were heavy into southern acts as UGK, Screwed Up Click and No Limit, Bishop was more drawn to artist outside of his region from the likes of east coast and west coast artist. If you were to compare him to someone in the industry to date, it would be Tech N9NE meets Ice Cube mixed with some DMX but tied in with Bishop3rd000 multi-eclectic style.
