Bio

TYRONE is a gifted artist. There is not a comparison to his style. TYRONE is not your ordinary conscious rapper. No other Hip Hop artist has blessed the microphone with deep intellectual lyrics combined with a good delivery. TYRONE writes about world issues that affect every individual and breaks them down to the street level. He hits home with all listeners crossing the generation gap. In a genre that is explicit with references to women, parties and drugs, TYRONE is explosive talking about religion and politics. Basically, TYRONE is a Hip Hop activist.
TYRONE records his music with show performances in mind. His performance is a must see and will increase his album sales. Fellow MC’s say they enjoy the energy of his performance. TYRONE thinks the performance should make your lyrics come alive. It does not matter if he does a 15 minute set to 60-minute set; he puts the crowd into frenzy. A 15-minute set leaves the crowd begging for more and the 60-minute set raises the bar for performers who follow his set.
TYRONE is releasing his debut album Aug 20th. The title of the CD is called “Little Devils Don’t go to Heaven.” TYRONE will be on a promotional tour this fall. His tour will target colleges and clubs in California. He will be performing at the annual Cedar Park Fair September 18th in Philadelphia. He will continue to perform in local clubs in Kansas City preparing for his west coast tour.
TYRONE, birth name Tyrone Harvey Brown Jr. is 32 years. Born in Brunswick, Ga. and moved to Alameda, Ca. after 3 months. He was raised in San Diego Ca. from age 4 to 23. He graduated from Kearny High School and received an Associates Degree from San Diego Mesa Community College in 1996.
TYRONE went to his first rap concert at the age of ten. His mother was his chaperone. At the end of the show she took him to the back of the arena to meet Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five and get autographs from the “Godfathers of Rap.” This was just the beginning. TYRONE started immediately performing in school talent shows usually break dancing. At a young age TYRONE knew how to keep the crowd into the show.
TYRONE has been writing since his sophomore year in high school. Good friend Steven Huff inspired him to start a rap group called Trio Image. The group did not last many semesters. TYRONE did not go directly to college after high school. He lived the basic young rebellious teenage life in California. Never holding a job and losing friendships, TYRONE kept writing songs. After two years of being in darkness, ended when he drove to Brunswick, Ga with his sister and then lived with his cousin. Life did not seem so dark when comparing his problems with those of his cousins. Although, TYRONE only visited for 3 months, this is where he found his soul and pathway for his writing.
TYRONE changed his focus and enrolled in San Diego Mesa Community College. This was the only way he felt he could make a difference and open doors. July of 1995 TYRONE made his first studio recording “Keep It Real”. The song was never released. The next month he flew to Philadelphia and enrolled in Temple University majoring in Economics. TYRONE attended Temple from 1995-1998. Artistically he collaborated with many independent artist and producers but did not record much music.
After years of unsigned work with independent producers and labels, TYRONE decided to release his own record label. Uprising Records is TYRONE’S contribution to a concept conceived to form a student organization. This was done in the spirit of the Million Man March. TYRONE attended the march his first semester at Temple. Being inspired by the march he took his pledge to do his part contributing to the black community. TYRONE and three other classmates founded a student organization that addressed social issues and solutions called Uprising. College enabled TYRONE to grow and let his leadership skills blossom.
TYRONE moved to Kansas City, Mo Memorial Day weekend of 2000. He has developed into a complete artist. TYRONE is releasing his debut album “Little Devils don’t go to Heaven.” He worked with some of Kansas City’s best well known Hip Hop producers. Everything happens for a reason in it’s own season. After the years of keeping faith, TYRONE will be a career artist. The time has come for the next level.
