Heralded as one of North Carolina’s most promising rap artists to date, Hip Hop trailblazer T-LYRIQ is establishing himself as one of the South’s most talented artists in the industry. Born Torrey Farrar, LYRIQ is quickly emerging as a fierce lyricist whose dreams of becoming a rap superstar is quickly becoming a reality.

Although LYRIQ is making waves with his music and continues to squash the competition, he has not always enjoyed good fortune and success. As a young black male living in a poverty-stricken neighborhood, LYRIQ became the witness of violence, crime and drugs. Angered by his limited circumstances and resources, he became a street hustler to provide for himself.

Determined to rise above his disempowering environment, he focused on making fast money. His plan to get ahead quickly unraveled when a close friend was tragically killed. To mourn the loss of his friend, LYRIQ found solace in writing poetry, and began to realize his gift for writing.

After honing his writing and rhyming skills, LYRIQ began spittin’ wherever there was a live audience, including at his high school. His freestyles were so electrifying that he continually attracted massive crowds, and received numerous accolades for his rhyming capabilities.

Seemingly overnight, the one-time street hustler from N.C. found a new love, and a new quest for life. LYRIQ credits music for making him the man he is today. Rhyming has served him well, and has taken him from the tortuous streets of North Carolina, to being one of Hip Hop’s celebrated MCs.

Eager to make a name for himself and spread his music to the masses, LYRIQ contacted Tayvon and John Smith of Yungsta Entertainment. Tayvon and John, two of the South’s most prominent Hip Hop music moguls, founded Yungsta Entertainment, and quickly established it as a thriving, full-service entertainment company dedicated to providing top notch hip hop to the urban culture.

Upon hearing LYRIQ’s uncanny rap skills, Tayvon was immediately impressed, and was committed to working with the young, up and coming star. In 2004, LYRIQ became Yungsta Entertainment’s first signed artist and released his debut EP, “Southern Charm.” Its hypnotic beats and raw lyrics were well-received by Hip Hop lovers in the U.S. and beyond.

“Burn it Down,” LYRIQ’s release, was even hotter, and showed his controversial, yet impressive spine-chilling rhymes that he presents with relentless vigor. Since dropping his first EP, LYRIQ is recognized as an up and coming Hip Hop hit-maker whose lyrical prowess continues to mesmerize rap fans from around the world.

His hot single, “Paper Boy”, garnered mass attention from rappers and Hip Hop fans alike on both coasts-and shows that his lyrical prowess cannot be denied.

Since his debut, LYRIQ is back on the grind. His hot, new single, “Spotlight”, featuring Dustin Tavella is sure to be an international party anthem. With a new, highly anticipated album on the way, the incomparable lyrical genius is in a league of his own, and is well on his way to extinguish all who cross his path.

As the new heavyweight rap sensation, T-LYRIQ is confirming that he is second to none. Like all of the major players in the rap industry, such as 50 Cent, Kanye West, and T.I., LYRIQ is carving his own niche in the Hip Hop world. Destined for greatness, T-LYRIQ is proving that he can stand with the top players in the rap game, and is here to stay.
