A native of Chester, MD, Tre was a skilled emcee, beating out 8,000 other rappers to win the Verizon #Freestyle50 contest. The victory earned him a single deal with 300 Entertainment, a $10,000 prize, and a chance to open for a 300 Entertainment artist at Hot 97’s Summer Jam in 2017. Tre da Kid was also a friend of the 92Q Family.
