Terrance Wayne Anthony (born June 8, 1978) better know by his stage name J. Tripper, is an African American and Native American rap artist from Oakland, California.
Terrance was born in Berkeley, California, and later moved with his single mother to North Oakland, California.
Attending Golden Gate Elementary School.
He enjoyed drawing and sports as a child, and began rapping at age 12 over old 33 & 45 records.
Mostly slowed down instruments of old school funk classics. Chiefly inspired by funk and soul artist. Such as James Brown, Curtis Mayfield, George Clinton & Rick James
Seeing rap artist Big Daddy Kane aka Antonio Hardy on Hip hop shows such as Yo! MTV Raps created a monster.
Heavily influenced by Oakland's own Too Short aka Todd Shaw and a young rapper named Ice Cube aka O'shea Jackson from South Central, Los Angeles, California and Scarface aka Brad Jordan of the Houston, Texas super group The Geto Boys in the early 80's and 90's aka the golden age of Gangsta Rap.
From a lack of guidance in Wayne's life he began hanging with the wrong crowd and started to deal drugs, vandalize and steal.
At the age of 18 he began making songs with a group called T.o.p aka Tru Oakland Playaz in the late 90's.
After countless home studios and garage studio recording session, nothing was ever released. The members all went there separate ways. Wayne started to into more trouble with the law because of his I don't give a fuck attitude and lack of respect for others. After being incarcerated several times, he knew his life had to change.
Meanwhile with only $200 Wayne moved to Jacksonville, Florida and started working in the day and robbing at night. He began to put money into small studio equipment such as drum machines and four track recorders from local pawn shops.
He debuted in 2007 with a self-released compilation untitled Stars, Stripes, Eagles and Bars and followed with street albums such as Stars, Stripes, Eagles and Bars (The Album) in 2010, Supreme Hustle in 2011, his highly anticipated debut studio The Colossus of Clout in 2011 - 2013
