Artist On The Rise: Anthony "TNT" Ross
On The 6th Presents: Anthony "TNT" Ross, An Artist On The Rise
Take a minute and get to know this up and coming California artist
In his own words:
I'm a rapper, but I would rather be known as a artist.
For the people that don't know me, my name is Anthony Ross also known as TNT which is my stage name. Born in Marin general hospital raised in Richmond, Ca. I moved to Sacramento and I rep Sac to the fullest now. I started rapping when I was 14, I started a rap group with my boy TJ Baker & my boys called me Tee so we formed a group called TNT.
I was a star on the field, a lot of people knew me for my speed and now in this game people know me for the realness,soulful music that I make. It feels good to know that people bump my music that I work hard on.
Up next for me is my new album titled "No U-Turnz" meaning no turning back because the past is the past. Also new music will always be dropping on www.facebook.com/thisistnt & also on www.reverbnation.com/thisistnt and video's will be dropping on www.YouTube.com/thisistnt
My proudest moment is everyday I wake up & knowing I'm able to make music and also make friends, I love networking.
I want to travel the world and let everybody and they mamma hear my music haha. Nah all jokes aside I would like to travel the world.
Well I'm going to let you into my personal life, I have no regrets in my life because if I never went through it I would never learn and grow as a person. But I do regret selling guns which was a dumb yet selfish moment of my life. Which I would never advise anyone to get mix up in the street life, there's nothing good out in the streets but death and life changing moments.
My personality is about having fun and living in the moment. Smiling everyday and creating a better lifestyle for my future kids. I really don't have any dislikes about myself. Everyday I make changes in my life to make everybody around me happy, I'm happy when my loved ones are happy!
The best advice I have ever received was from my dad, he always says "lessons are learn & trust is earned!" it always sticks with me and my lifestyle because there's always somebody claiming there real when there really fake.
Advice I would give somebody in this game is, keep GRINDING it's ruff, Keep your head up and don't get involved with drugs that change you as a person. Don't get caught up in the hype and don't pay attention to haters.
My project is done "No U-Turnz" will be coming out in Nov. Of 2011. I always got unreleased tracks and videos dropping all the time. Im currently doing a lot of features with other rappers/singers. I love collaborating with different artists.
In five years I should be kicking my feet up laughing about the past & how much hard work it took to get here.
