Tre-Ski is a rapper/producer who has been a fan of music for as long
as he can remember. Born in 1980 in Richmond, VA, and raised in the
gritty streets of Brooklyn, NY, Tre-Ski grew up alongside both the Crack
Epidemic and the emergence of Hip-Hop. The hardships of ghetto life
directly influenced his style, which is considered “Grimey East Cost Hip-

He notes that the one thing that kept him from falling victim to the streets at
an early age was his fascination with his Mother’s 200+ record collection.
Growing up, he was the one who got called out of bed to perform for
company—his favorite things were dancing to Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean
and playing, “Name That Tune”.

In 1987, at the age of 7, Tre-Ski began mimicking the rap songs that
were playing on the radio, the same way he did to the classics from his
Mom’s collection. His older brother, who was rapping himself, saw this as
an opportunity to mold one of the “Greatest MCs that ever chose to spit
rhymes.” As the years passed on, he grew, both, physically, as well as,
lyrically. Heralded as a battle champion among his peers, and some older
cats, Tre-Ski, then going by the name Unknown Specimen, was a force to
be reckoned with.
