3rd Degree is a very hot up and coming rapper from Kansas City, MO. Coming from a town that has a thriving underground rap scene, 3rd has positioned himself in front of the rest in his movement to the top. Through his childhood he grew an appreciation and love for all kinds of music. This passion came full circle when at the age of 16 he began rapping. Rapping was a way for him to channel his energy into something more positive than continuing to run the streets. Since then he has steadily been perfecting his craft and today at the age of 25 he has built a sizeable fan base in Kansas City and the Midwest.
The debut album from 3rd Degree, 'It's All Bad' was released in early May and quickly moving off the shelves and out of the trunk in Missouri and Kansas. With the release of his upcoming compilation, Red Plastic Cup Exclusives, in September 3rd will seek national distribution. Both of these albums have created quite a buzz with Internet sales increasing daily.
As promotion for 'It's All Bad' continues and begins for Red Plastic Cup Exclusives 3rd will be hitting the road performing all over the Midwest. Dates and locations are currently being locked for this fall and will include cities such as Kansas City, St Louis, Des Moines, Quad Cities, Minneapolis, Tulsa, Oklahoma City, Indianapolis, Cleveland, and Toledo.
With the completion and release of these projects 3rd has also started to design his own apparel which will hit the market on the Internet and at shows this fall. This will include shirts, jeans, hoodies, hats, etc…
With all this going on 3rd Degree is set to make a run for the top in 2006 and 2007.
