As a child of 11 in Fayette, Alabama, 6 Tre G’s cousins brought him a Slick Rick and Doug E. Fresh record, La Di Da Di. As a direct result of that record, Tre became fully immersed in beats and rhymes.
“I learned La Di Da Di because it was the only record I had,” he says. “When I came home from school, I played that. It got to the point where I knew it so well that I just played the instrumental and I’d say the words.” Tre’s musical influences have come full circle with “Fresh.” The track samples and revolves around the line “Fresh dressed / like a million bucks” from La Di Da Di, the song that made Tre want to rap in the first place.[youtube IyzV9Q1LIKI nolink]
