Explores the tragic contradictions of a society, hooked on instant gratification, that continues to struggle with its prospects for long-term prosperity.

2020 has been a busy year for T Dot Illdude. With heavy playlist support from both Spotify and Tik Tok, along with a feature on Monday Night Football, his star is on the rise. A signature style of mixing hard-hitting lyrics with Hip Hop grooves along with hints of RnB has connected with an audience that is hungry for more.

Behind the 'sudden' success is a story of dedication and perseverance - from Timbaland to Snoop Dogg to Meek Mill to G-Eazy, this New Jersey native is a walking testimony that hard work pays off. His first taste of success came when he was battle rapping in the local scene, marketing his rhymes and releasing numerous mixtapes over the years. After moving to LA, connecting with Charlie Heat and releasing "The Vibe Is Heavy 3" in 2017, fast-forward to 2020 and TDot Illdude is on his game. With a string of single releases to close out the year, "Ghetto Lullaby" is a preview from upcoming project "Dopamine Damage" that explores the tragic contradictions of a society, hooked on instant gratification, that continues to struggle with its prospects for long-term prosperity. Written and recorded while quarantined in Los Angeles, Tdot Illdude was able to observe the reality of a world where social media numbers and clout are stripped away. What does self-worth and self-love truly amount to when it’s just you?

Everyone is going through something. I want to let the people who look to me for inspiration know that they’re not alone. We’re all pushing through these times together, and we’re going to stay down till we come up. – Tdot Illdude
