Emerging Atlanta based artist TTO K.T. releases his anticipated project Vibes after a successful run of shows this past week down in Austin for SXSW, where Trinidad James brought K.T. out as a special guest alongside Texas legend Trae tha Truth.
Premiering in Billboard Magazine, Vibes is a breath of fresh air for music listeners alike. 11 tracks in length, this project has features with longtime collaborator Trippie Redd on “Yeah X3”, CarlDontKillem on “U” and Yakki on “Hateful World”.
Since meeting each other through mutual friends in Columbus, OH, Trippie has featured K.T. on his previous records like “Purple Vibes” and “On Point”. TTO K.T. told Billboard Magazine,
“I knew Trippie was special ever since we first met in 2015. Recently, he and I were in the studio together, and we recorded like 5 joints. One of them was “Yeah 3x” which the homie Elliot Trent (i.e. “Love Scars”) produced and we made a certified smash. We tested it out on Shade 45 with DJ Whoo Kid and Hot 97 with Hip Hop Mike and the reaction was crazy, so we knew we had something. We’re working on getting the video done next, once Trippie gets off of the “Beautiful & Damned Tour.”
Throughout this year TTO K.T. looks to really break out as a recording artist. There are tons of gems contained within his catalog including projects like “Phone Ringing Diamonds” (Part 1 & 2), which both are produced primarily by Pi’erre Bourne. “Vibes” will be the catalyst for that, and hopefully you agree.
About TTO K.T.
Kerry “K.T.” Hardy, known as TTO K.T. was born in Birmingham, AL and raised in Atlanta, GA, where both cultural areas molded him creatively into the artist he is today. The young heavy hitter with a ferocious bar to bar singing combo, experienced a lot of pain and anguish growing up. From losing his father to prison, then moving back to Birmingham shortly after his release was a very challenging transition. That’s when at the age of 15, K.T. started to use music as a form of expression.
Upon graduating high school, K.T. enrolled to the prestigious HBCU Moorehouse College, where his first three projects were recorded. During his time at Moorehouse, K.T. was taken under the wing of Mercy, known for his work with “Jumping Like Jordan” for Rich The Kid, “Rich Than Famous” for Migos, “Aye” for Dae Dae and “Dirty Sprite” for Future.
Then after the sudden and tragic loss of his father to murder in 2014, K.T. experienced a dark and depressing time. This motivated him to kick into another gear and take his music to the next level. Since the loss of his father K.T. has worked with Timbaland, Aaron Reid, Kodie Shane, Trippie Redd, Que, Elliot Trent, Pi’erre Bourne, BBOD, Kash Doll, and more. With his diverse style and love of making music, this ‘Superstar on the Rise’ genre is yet to be categorized.
