Tarrance Brown will be the first to tell you that his childhood in Memphis was not much of a childhood. Bouncing from home to home, Tarrance’s earlier years can be described as unstable. The tumultuous times would have a profound effect on his schooling as his missed his dad turned to anger would cause him to lash out. In effort to channel these emotions he would use sports as an outlet. Becoming a top athlete in track, basketball and football before joining the Marines later on,
“Beside sports, I would invest a lot of time into writing poems as well as reading the business & money sections of the newspaper. My upbringing was hard but I did not let that stop me from living life to its fullest. Failure was not an option.”
Ultimately music was the real saving grace for Tarrance. Hanging out with his childhood friend Christopher Forest aka K-le in his grandmother’s living room one day, the duo began to record music on a 4-track. Realizing his potential and pushing himself he began to see many doors of opportunity opening for him. Envisioning a career for himself he stepped into his alter ego Archangel.
“As archangel I felt like I could spread my wings. Archangel became my truth for all to see and hear. A new found image if you will, presence that I fully embodied.”
Finding inspiration in hometown heroes such as Three 6 Mafia and Indo G as well as legends like Rakim and the figureheads of No Limit RecordsFar Tarrance would develop an in-depth understanding of the art of Hip Hop.
