Train Wrecka Biography

Train Wrecka was born and raised in the JVL area of North St. Louis, MO with his older brother, young sister and parents.  At the age of five, Train started tap dancing with his uncle, Mr. Wallace Robinson, and that was the start of a very innovative entertainment career. At the age of 9, Train did multiple tap dance performances throughout the Midwest with Mr. Robinson and the St. Louis Jazz Tappers Inc. including The Fabulous Fox Theater located in St. Louis. Other Missouri cities include Cuba, Kansas City, Mexico, Jefferson City, and Mound City. Train went from a beginner in dance straight to an advanced dancer in only 2 years and then went on to become a Master's Apprentice at the age of 14. Growing up in the JVL he was exposed to gang-related activities and drugs. Train wanted to help support his family so he began selling drugs. He saw the effect of his product and didn't want to continue live that lifestyle. Train attended Central Visual Performing Arts, and Vashon High School. In high school he was quite the athlete he played basketball, baseball, football and also boxed for Gamble Community Center.

Upon his graduation from high school, Train entered the United States Air Force to better himself mentally and physically which he managed to do very well. He earned the nickname "Phantom" from his mysterious ways, multiple personalities and ability to bounce back from any obstacle, but due to a very dangerous knee injury that happened during a military drill on a mountain. Due to his injury, Train was released from the military in 2001. Train was determined to overcome this obstacle and he stepped back on stage, after knee surgery and only 7 weeks of rehabilitation, to continue performing and amazing people with his slick dance moves.

In the later months of 2000, Train began to listen to more and more music including jazz, dance, country, western, hip-hop, and r & b. Train was influenced to write his first rap entitled "Dear Sue", in remembrance of his aunt, who passed away in 1999 from breast cancer, and the response that he received from his peers was overwhelming. Train began writing lyrics and songs every day, sometimes for 9 or 10 hours straight. Train was determined to express his feeling and thoughts through his lyrics, which he did and still does today.

Train is a very emotional and versatile artist, spitting lyrics about his life, family, friends, dreams, and emotions. Some of his performances include opening up for Strange Music Inc., Nelly, Dirty Boys, T.I., Lil Wayne, Hot Boys, C- Murder, Mystikal, Ludacris, Chris Brown, Tyga, Chingy, Eminem, and many more established artists. "Train Wrecka" is an alter ego to the stage name "Phantom", this alter ego describes his style, state of emotion, and the amount of adrenaline he brings in the studio and on stage. Train's mixtape "Nuttin' Left to Lose" hosted by Blood Raw of Blood Raw Entertainment and DJ Jamil was released on February 25th 2012.

Train released his debut album "Dark Dayz Bright Nightz" on April 13, 2013 and he is currently working on his second album entitled "Rail Yard" which is scheduled to be released in July 2014.Train would like the music industry to get ready or get off the tracks, because‌
