Rapper, public speaker, podcast host, and founding member of the 116 Movement, Tedashii, releases a new EP, This Time Around 2, available today on music streaming platforms. The body of work features Jon Keith, Big Breeze, Zach Paradis, and Reach Records label mates: Lecrae, Trip Lee, and 1K Phew.
“This Time Around 2 is the outcome of deep self-reflection, a new beginning, and a call to listeners to witness the transformation that is available on the other side if you’re willing to do the work and surrender yourself to God,” shares Tedashii.
TEdashii’s unique style and capacity to translate suffering into moving music are what make him extraordinary. The Texas-born and raised emcee known by his stage moniker TDot has been mesmerizing audiences for almost 20 years with his upbeat style and commanding voice. His most recent album, This Time Around 2, continues where the first, published in 2016, left off, and this time he incorporates even more insight from hard-learned lessons learnt into his music.
“I talk about what I have lived and not what I’ve learned from reading. As a result, I have a renewed sense of awareness and am constantly working on loving myself and pushing forward through insecurities.”
In advance of This Time Around 2, Tedashii has released several singles and music videos including: “Mirror Talk,” “OBJ,” and “Respect My Team” featuring label mates, Lecrae and Trip Lee, and the latest “Holy Ground” directed by Dustbrandfilms.
“Wherever I go, God is with me! As a matter of fact, as someone who is made in the image of God, and one who believes that God is the Creator of everything, where I step because he is with me is Holy Ground so I treat life and the world as such. I walk in and show up as my true self knowing I’m on Holy Ground,” shares Tedashii.
