Head strong, determined and talented is just some words to describe, who we promise will be your favorite artist sooner than you think.
Introducing T Savage — born and raised on the west side of Baltimore City, MD, T Savage was groomed and cultivated by two self proclaimed hustlers, her mother and father. Her parents lived and provided for their family, by any means necessary. This provided the soundtrack of T Savage’s youth, against a sobering tapestry of drugs, street life and survival, a virtual witches brew for a young girl growing up in the violent, drug-riddled streets of Baltimore.
Growing up, Savage used household legends like Notorious B.I.G, Jay-Z, AZ, The Hot Boyz, Lil Kim and Eve to shape her artistry. Fueled by sheer grit and passion, at an early age T Savage would memorize lyrics from her favorites, giving them her own flavor and eventually developing her own inimitable style and flow, over popular beats.
Savage knew early on that she wanted to perform. From a tragic Halloween that ended in the murder of her father, right in front of her eyes, to literally watching her mother hustle to make ends meet rap was a means to an end for T Savage.
“The only way I kept my sanity was to write” she states. “Truthfully, it was the only way I could be controlled. The only thing that deterred me from fighting, almost every day, was to put pen and paper to write. I let my pain out on that paper,” says the rapper.
Driven by inherited hustle, T.Savage’s mantra is “Nothing is out of reach,” and this Baltimore City brute turned female MC’s got NEXT!
You can catch T Savage’s headlining performance for Cardi B, Da Baby and Blue Face on May 24th for 92Q’s Spring Bling concert at Royal Farms Arena.
