At the age of 13, T.P. moved out on his own in North East Washington D.C. He became involved in drug dealing, robbery, guns and street life. At 15, his street hunger was beginning to pay off. Struggle was a far cry with ownership of 6 vehicles, along with other things, being his proof. He was living the life. However, while on this road, T.P. received 6 gun charges in various cities.
His street credibility and curious "pimpy" mind then led him to a new chapter of life, the" Pimp Game". Known as a street-smart reputable pimp, T.P. once explained, if pimping had not come along, he doesn't know where he would be today. The pimp game paved a new road to success for him. Although he began pimping at the age of nineteen, T.P.'s thug mentality was not easily forgotten. It took T.P. to the age of 21 to completely get out of pullin capers and hustling drugs. The reputable T.P. got his name from when he first began pimping in D.C. His in-depth initials describe his development from a troublesome teen to a mature entrepreneur. T.P. explains it best himself: "The pimp game is a gentleman's game, thuggin' is not allowed. When I got in the game, I was so pimpy and so much of a thug, the old school pimps started calling me 'Thug Pimpin'. They knew I would leave the thuggin' alone like all good pimps do. When my pimpin' grew to a certain level, I didn't want pimps to think I would rob them or draw heat by thuggin' so I changed it to 'Truth and Power' ". The change in his mindset helped T.P. to move forward quickly in the Pimpin' World. He currently has chopped it up on 50+ plus tracks in multiple cities in 19 different states.
It's good to talk.
