THN-THUG HOPE NATION / Bio
"Rap is somn you do Hip hop is somn you live"
THN is not a hip hop group. We don't necessarily live the culture. We do rap tho.
And we are damn good at it! Real, because we were born and raised in one of the realest neighborhoods, and seen what life has to offer at its worst. *Dayton St. Projects* In Newark NJ.
(Uknown to some, Well known by many). We used to say that when you got to DSP, you were at the end of th earth. And once you got there, you will not make it out the same.
None did! Drugs, guns, stolen cars, you name it! We witnessed it! Which is one of the main reasons that we feel no need to express that reality through our music. Been there and done that. And you've already heard it, over and over. Yet through the graces of God Himself. We made it out. Survivors.. The whole hood of Dayton St. representatives feel the same way.
As we grew, music was always a big part of our lives. From old school club music. To slow jams like, The Whispers, Stylelistics, Blue Majic ect. Jazz, Funk.. James Brown,
BB King. We watched Soul Train faithfully.

But when we started out rapping we had no indentity. Still don't more than a decade later. Just realness, with a mean twist of skillz, truth, and originality. A blessed group of family members. Not a made up crew.

Thas real. If u ask us, Anyone can pop shyte!
Thas easy. We did that all day in the hood.
The question is, about what?! And does it have a point? If not! To us, its just creative banter. So we vowed to be true, real, honest, and original. From the base to the vocal. We expect to be new. We know YOU,
have never heard anything like us before. And
thas the way God preffered it. So we hope you enjoy our new breed of rap skillz and sounds. And pray that God keeps you all in His greatest of favors.. 1 love. From the entire THN- THUG HOPE NATION Family. Bless!!
