3TG cut his teeth early on, and was fortunate to be taken under the wing of Krayzie Bone (Bone Thugs n Harmony) at the age of 21. Dealing with Krayzie Bone’s record label Thugline Records, he quickly became a promising act with rhymes fully showcasing the determination of a hungry artist who wouldn’t rest until he reached the very top. Crossing over into the wrong side of the jail-bars after a race-related incident landed him in prison in Virginia; Krayzie Bone was the one who ended up bailing him out and encouraging him to never quit on his music dreams.
Since then, 3TG hasn’t had an ounce of rest. Supported by his affiliates Crawla the Goon, Banks the Goon, Sack the Goon, and 54 Honyo, 3 The Goon has an incredible team of talent surrounding him from the studio to the stage and material that brings the crowd right to their feet demanding more.
