"Latest Toughs: Spray Paint, Tele Novella, Kydd and More"

Lil T isn’t as prominent as Kydd yet but he’s a sign of how an increasing number of Austin hip hop acts aren’t that far behind Kydd in terms of national-ready talent. T’s new track “All I Know” is a hit in waiting thanks to the double assault of Boz’s cataclysmic beat and T’s impressively limber flow. Musically, “All I Know” is proof of the power of simplicity, sticking mainly to a hyper addictive piano hook sample and forceful percussion that expands and contracts. Lil T turns in a ferocious vocal performance, though, hitting the verses with antagonistic fervor before moving into a lilting, sing song style for the chorus. Every element of “All I Know” is explosive and leaves little doubt that Codeine Margaritas, the album it teases, is going to hit the scene hard. - Ovrld


With the country and rock music scenes often saturating the Live Music Capital, it is the local hip hop community that is about to explode, and it will gain a much larger audience due to artists such as Lil’ T, an emcee who recently dropped the single “All I Know.”

Local blog Ovrld featured the track in its Latest Toughs section, where the site highlights new tracks from local musicians. While Lil’ T, whose real name is Tony Bergara, isn’t on the rise as fast as fellow Austin emcee Kydd Jones, his rhyming abilities will bring him much needed attention.

Sticking to a piano sample that plays in the background as Lil’ T spews razor-sharp lyrics, the cut will remind hardcore hip hop fans of Chicago rapper Twista‘s slick timing. “All I Know,” produced by Boz and Rapaid Ric, will appear on Lil T’s upcoming record Codeine Margaritas. -


Still working on that hot first release.



Austin native Tony Bergara, aka Lil T, blends intricate rhythms with Texas flavor to create a sound that is truly unique. Bergara pulls elements from real life experiences and applies them to his own brand of Austin Hip Hop.

Bergara began composing rhymes at a young age, and was a frequent emcee on “Boys Beat Box” where teens and young adults called into the local radio station to battle over beats. Bergara started recording his rhymes a few years after graduating high school, and released his first mixtape, Live From Austin, in 2009, with former high school classmate, Andrew Moreno with Trac Sounds. Bergara put out subsequent projects with Trac Sounds in 2011 and 2013 releasing mixtapes, Silver and Gold, respectively. Bergara released Gold’s follow-up, Platinum, in 2014.

Shortly after Platinum’s release, Bergara opened for Doughbeezy at a show in Austin, TX, where he met DJ Rapid Ric. The two released, Lil To The T, a seven track EP in 2015. Lil T and DJ Rapid Ric are currently working on a second project together, which is scheduled to release in 2016.
