Biography

THEOLOGY 3 BIO

Have you ever listened to a song and stopped everything you’re doing? Time becomes a mere formality and life’s immediacy filters away as you transcend into a state of musically induced bliss. Emcee Theology 3 never snapped out of that inspired comfort provided by the likes of blues legends Bobby Bland, Buddy Guy and Albert Collins alongside Hip Hop storytellers like Big Daddy Kane, Boogie Down Productions and Rakim. Those vivid compositions laid the foundation for the free flowing and reality driven brand of lyricism which Theo 3 invokes to this day.

Toronto emcee Theology 3 burst onto the Canadian Hip hop landscape with his first 12" release,"It's Ovah" distributed by Arlington ave. entertainment. Having climbed the independent vinyl charts in Toronto and Montreal respectively, the 2000 release gained critical acclaim in Peace and Pound magazine while propelling Theology 3 into soundtrack work (Concrete Wave on OLN), t.v. appearances (U8tv.com, Much on Demand) and a host of successful showcases in Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa and Buffalo. Unforgettable appearances on several Canada wide compilations from 2002 onwards laid the groundwork for the plethora of releases and critical praise that was to follow.

Fast forward to 2004, with the independent release of "the Screwface Capital mix c.d." and various releases alongside world renowned d.j. and producer Dj Serious, Theology 3 continued to elevate beats and rhymes beyond the status quo with his innovative style of "conscious battling". Easily able to mix unbelievable punch lines with potent social commentary in a unique and ever changing flow, Theology 3 has earned worldwide praise from the likes of Urb magazine, Allhiphop.com, Exclaim, Hip Hop Connection (U.K.) and Hiphopsite.com to name a few. Theo3’s feature on the Dj Serious produced double A side 12" with hip hop legend Masta Ace charted for extended periods of time (ughh.com, earshot college radio charts) and propelled Theology 3 into the Worldwide marketplace with 3 critically acclaimed songs on the 2005 DJ Serious/ Maple music distributed album COLD TEA.

In 2006, a highly anticipated collaboration with the phenomenal production team TONE MASON (Fantasia, Talib Kweli, Rochester, Choclair, Brass Munk) produced the first single off of the renowned “TIME ep.” Fully mixed and mastered by Michael “Blaow” Plante from World Rydah studios (Mayhem Morearty, Rochester), the sharp lyrics and lavish soundscapes took the listener on an auditory ride not to be missed. With a #6 chart placement in NOW magazine’s year end “BEST of 2006” Toronto music rundown and fantastic reviews of the TIME EP in Pound, Exclaim and various other national publications, there’s never been a better TIME to shine. Theology 3 is ready to take Canadian Hip Hop to the next level with respect, knowledge and raw talent to match. It’s TIME!
