Biography

Teacher MC, T-Dome, is the rap artist every student has been waiting for. Known for his descriptive rap, T-Dome has been entertaining crowds since he developed a love for hip-hop in grade school.
While pursuing a degree to teach in college, T-Dome practiced his craft through several bands and hip-hop groups.

In 2009, he followed up with the Valentines Day sitcom, G-Lovah Saga.'
His head-knocking narrative led to a collaboration with the education company, Flocabulary, teaching several subjects through hip-hop. T-Dome performs several songs, along with fell Flocab artists, which teaches specific subjects to students. He has presented Flocabulary to many schools as a workshop facilitator. Flocabulary's success has led to interviews on NBC News and FoxNews, as well as the Brooklyn MC connecting with broadway playwright Arje Shaw, to become The Sonnet Man.
