T.B. is a CEO, rapper, songwriter, and founder of Fire Proof 1 Records.

Tell us a bit about yourself and your various projects.
I'm a Christian, father, gospel rapper from North Memphis, Tennessee, and I go by the name T.B., which means Truly Blessed. I have come out with 2 projects, Sinner 2 A Saint 1, and currently promoting my second project, Sinner 2 A Saint 2, with over 20,000 units sold.

You recently were honored by receiving the President’s Volunteer Service Award from President Obama. Can you tell us a bit about this award and what you were honored for?
This awarded is given  to those who have made an positive impact in there communities by making a better tomorrow. I feel it is my duty to give back to the community and I was very elated to get honored for my call to service.

How did becoming an MTV artist impact your career?
It has given me more exposure with the various media outlets.

You’ve shared the stage with a lot of talented artists, from Canton Jones to Mr. Del to K-drama, just to name a few. Is there a dream artist you’d like to share the stage with?
I  would love to share the stage with a secular artist to be able to spread the gospel with their fan base.

You recently landed on the front cover of the Time Magazine Promo Run. Can you tell us a bit about this?
This was one of the perks of becoming an MTV artist. This was such an awesome experience for me. It was a blast working on this project and I look forward to being on the cover of Time in the future.

How has the Internet and social media influenced how listeners experience music? Is radio play as important as it used to be?
The internet and social media helps artist expand their fan base and makes music more accessible for the fans to support. Radio play will always be important in getting music to its audience, but it is not as important in this day and time because of all the other technologies that are available to help an artist get her/his music heard.

What are your goals for the next 10 years?
In the next  10 years I see myself still doing ministry to impact the Kingdom of God by influencing the youth.

What’s the next project you’re working on?
I'm currently working on my third mix tape: Sinner 2 A Saint 3, which is expected to come out summer 2016.

Anything else you’d like to add?
I'm very grateful and thankful for the opportunity God has given me to help people through my music.
