Outta San Francisco, California, Bailey got started as a part of the group FULLY LOADED which spanned the albums Millenium Attitude and Reloaded ’99 -’04. Also appeared on Tha Done Deal Fam Album, Tha Rompilation 2, Heated Speaches, I Give You My Word and many others.
Dropping his first mix tape, “Livin Da Dream” in 2005, Bailey showed from the start he was a forceful talent from the streets. His club anthem “F*ck Yo Couch” quickly became a catch phrase during the summer of 2005. Known as one of the most lyrically gifted artists to come along, combined with a street savvy and playboy swagger.
With a strive to be original, Bailey made sure he showed himself from all angles, especially his player side with heaters like “Hey Lil Breezy”, “Stay Down” (Forever) feat. Keyshia Cole and the sure fire hit “Get 2 Know Ya” feat. Shawn Stockman of the super group Boyz II Men.
Bailey started his own label perfectly named P.A.I.D Ent. (Patience And Intense Dedication) Bailey feelshonored & blessed for what he has learned & the chances he is given to be creative musically.
The state of Hip Hop is at a turning point. With many artists attempting to take over the internet with the next popular hook, very few are focusing on the soul of Hip Hop. As an upcoming artist, the Oakland, CA native T-Ran (born Ta'Darrell Randolph) plans to bring the essence back.
He describes his music as raw emotion and expression; it is a pure reflection of him. "Never was a sand box kid used that time to dream/Knew the power of them before I knew of Dr. King/ Look now I am living one/ and imma live it up until my livings done," T-Ran spits over "The Intro" track. At the age of 21, he wakes up every day with a musical mindset. He takes pride in being a lyricist who refuses to conform to society. T-Ran will continue to dream, believe and execute to change the unbalanced state of Hip Hop to an industry filled with love, passion and substance.
