Tre Redeau-Harris was born and raised in northeast Portland, OR. As a child, growing up in two homes and seeing two very different ways of life was motivational for him, and inspired him to strive for something better. At his mother’s house, there was structure and lots of support. The fridge was always full, and bills were paid on time. At his dad’s house, things were a bit different. There, he was exposed to family members who used drugs, gang banged and there were a lot of inconsistencies, but one thing that he could always count on, was the rapping in his dad’s basement. Tre’s older brother LC was often in the basement with his cousin Eddie Barnett, writing songs and spitting rhymes. They used the basement to record.
On February 23rd 2005 during a high school basketball game, his cousin Eddie suddenly collapsed. The high school junior died on the spot of heart failure. Tre and the rest of the family took the loss extremely hard. Soon after, through reminiscing of his cousin Eddie and his big brother LC writing rapping and recording in his dad’s basement, Tre began to write rhymes of his own.
In high school, through a studio production class, he was able to strengthen his music skills and expand his knowledge of the music business. This motivated Tre to begin recording the many songs he had written, up to that point. During this time, he also met other young rappers who were eager to get their feet wet in the music game. One of these young rappers was Manny, a talented lyricist who often worked to help guide and teach Tre what he knew. Manny later moved to Atlanta to attend Morehouse but kept in touch with Tre and the two continued to pursue music on both sides of the country. Shortly after, Tre joined USA La Familia, a Portland hip-hop group, but quickly parted ways with them and decided to go solo, in order to make the type of music he wanted to. Tre began rockin’ local parties in 2008 and started polishing his live show, all of this before graduating high school.
Now as a college freshmen, we see another side of Tre. His debut mixtape titled Room and Board, depicts the life of a college student who likes to party, is addicted to fashion, has expensive habits that he can't afford on his financial aid. We follow Tre as he tries to get attention from the ladies, struggles in school and feels the pressure of society to get a college degree, while pursuing his real dream of blowing up in the music industry.
Room and Board is saturated with radio ready hooks, catchy party anthems, and clever story-telling, which bring you into the world of a northeast Portland boy turned, young, business savvy and charismatic MC. The mixtape has been released as a free digital download on www.livewireforever.com and features some up and coming Portland talent such as Cassow, Vinnie Dewayne, Manny, Peadi Ecks, Luck-One, also LA’s Monica Olivera and Ice Cube’s son OMG.
