 Once a secular rapper, born in Chicago, Trent's first rap was in his south side community (EDEN GREEN 
HOMES), neighbors with the infamous housing project (ALTGELD GARDENS), both areas were known for 
gangs, drugs, etc. At the age of 8 years old, he was rapping to older kids, and other kids his own age 
within the area. His inspiration came from a rap group called "BONE THUGS IN HARMONY". As time 
proceeded, Trent went on to high school where he joined a rap group, competed in talent shows, won 
1st place trophies, and graced the stage with artist like "DA BRAT", "TWISTA", "COMMON", and more. 
Now living with his father, Trent - G was very gang affiliated, and still involved in the street life, yet 
pursuing his music career. After submitting a tape to THE STEVE HARVEY'S BIG TIME TV SHOW, Trent - G 
appeared on the show and competed, and he won, winning $10,000 as the fastest rapper in the world. 

Trent-G surely thought this would not appeal to his crowd of interest, but one day God told Trent to pick up the bible and read 
"PSALMS", and he came across PSALMS 34/18, which reads THE LORD IS CLOSE TO THE BROKEN 
HEARTED AND SAVES THOSE WHO ARE CRUSHED IN SPIRIT, and that summed it up. Today, Trent - G is 
an award nominated gospel rapper that has graced the stage of several TV shows, and radio shows to 
share his story, and to inspire others, especially young people headed down the wrong path.Trent-G then went on to be a special guest on Good Morning America, written up in many Chicago newspaper articles, radio appearances, etc
