President T

AKA: Pres T and Prez T

About President T

President T is a true veteran of the UK underground scene, beginning as a DnB/Jungle MC in the late 1990s before joining Manchester’s Darkside Crew around the turn of the century. Born in Birmingham and raised in Tottenham, he was a member of one of grime’s most legendary and influential crews, Meridian Crew, in the mid 2000s. After Skepta and Jme departed to form Boy Better Know, President T formed Bloodline alongside his brothers Big H and Paper Pabs, his cousin Bossman Birdie, Milli Major, and Meridian Dan. The theme of family runs strong through the group and President T still closely works with these MCs, alongside Bloodline producer Doeboy.

His long-awaited 15 track debut mixtape, Back Inna My Face was released in February 2008 as a free download. The next few years were relatively quiet in terms of music for President T as he spent time focusing on other parts of his life. Arguably his most notable moment in the scene during these years was his beef with Trim during 2011.

Since 2014, President T has been far more active in the UK grime scene. After appearing on hits such as Skepta’s “That’s Not Me (Remix)” and Sir Spyro’sSide By Side”, he released the mixtape Greatest To Ever Touch Down in December 2015.

A strong 2016 included the singles “House and Pop and ”Thug Life, which preceded the December release of his T On The Wing album. The album’s title track has racked up over 900k views on YouTube, which is his most viewed video.

Back Inna My Face was remastered and re-released in early 2017, and although the pattern of December releases didn’t continue for a third year, the album Stranger Returns was announced on Christmas Day. Having been in anticipation for the best part of 10 years, leading to comparisons with Dr Dre’s mythical Detox album, it was released in March 2018.

A second album of 2018 dropped in October, There’s Only One, a drill influenced ten track release. The album Kill Off Killy is expected to be released during 2019.
