It’s an enjoyable cut from start to finish, and has us looking forward to more from him soon. - Elevator

"HillTop HYPE | Artist Spotlight: Meet ‘The Thr33’"

The DMV area holds a handful of notable hip-hop artists from Wale, D.R.A.M, Lightshow, Fat Trel, and Shy Glizzy just to name a few.
Now we get a breath of fresh air with this rising collective, The Thr33.

The unique rapping style of The Three is evident. They incorporate their East Coast roots, all the while finding ways to intertwine all styles of rap that appeals to the whole hip-hop culture.

Here to build an empire of their own… Meet, The Three:

1. How did the dope collective of The Thr33 come about?

– “We originally started as a group of 8 in 2006… overtime the groups vibe just narrowed itself down to the three of us as of last year. Of course that wasn’t our name when we first started, but when it ended up being just the three of us and because we rep the 301 (DMV) we changed our name to The Thr33.”
2. It’s pretty easy to decipher an East Coast sound given the lyrical flow of the artist(s) and the general feel of the music (v.s. West Coast or down South hip-hop)… How would you say your music differs from the typical East Coast vibe of Hip-Hop?

– “We give a little bit of everything… from down south vibes, trap, soul, to chill music you can smoke to.”

3. Who are your top 3 music influences of all time? – If you had to make the difficult decision to choose 1 of those artists to work with as a collective who would you choose and why?

– Jahlike: Pharrell
Deemo: Wiz Kahlifa
Nabu: Kid Cudi
“We would choose Pharrell because he’s also from the DMV area. We all grew up listening to him. We look at him as inspiration because he can be in whatever lane of music and still be comfortable… something we’re trying to lock down as a group also.”

4. What has been one of the groups most memorable / favorite projects thus far and why?

– “My single, “Got That.” It got a lot of love once it was released, but while we were working on it, it was still a group effort… we all wanted it to be and knew it was gonna be a hit.” – Deemo

5. How do you guys manage to work successfully and productively on your music as a group, but still focus on your craft as an individuals?

– “It’s all about balance and finding time for everything we’re doing. We spend a lot of time together but we also get time to ourselves. That gives us time to gather our individual thoughts and figure out what direction we wanna take for our solo careers.”

6. Top 3 adjectives to describe your groups style of music.

– “Smooth. Creative. Lit.”
“We take our time with everything we do.”

7. I know one of your groups ventures is to create an entertainment platform for rising creatives like yourselves… What would be your groups mission statement for that company / the overall goal?

– “The DMV is an untapped market that no major label has paid attention to. We wanna show these labels and everybody else that there’s hella talent here and that it’s worth putting the money behind it. There’s really a lot of dope artists here that whole rap game is slept on.”

8. As 3 individual creatives, is it easier to create authentic music by combining your skills? – Or do you guys tend to struggle to fit together everyone’s individual styles when creating music?
– “We fam before anything. We already have that vibe, it’s always there. We just go into the studio and make it happen… We vibe, we talk, come up with ideas, we always end up making something dope.”

9. Top 3 goals as a collective you guys hope to accomplish within the next year?

– “We definitely want to get our company off the ground. We wanna be seen on tv and start doing more festivals and performances outside the DMV. Basically we just wanna get the ball rolling and become a household name.”
As you can see, The Thr33, is here to make a wave of their own. The talented collective undoubtably has the drive, the creativeness, and the hustle to make it happen in no time. As the group strives to shine light on the DMV, there’s no telling how much further the set will go beyond that. Let’s just sit back, wait, and see.

Don’t sleep on The Thr33 as they’re working on an upcoming EP, more shows, and some dope new merch to share with their fans.

In the meantime, listen to, The Thr33, via SoundCloud.

Still working on that hot first release.



Growing up, Jahlike’s mom was a singer and a huge Bad Boy fan; a lot of Diddy, a lot of Jadakiss, a lot of New York. This piqued his interest in music, and when he was 14 he started making songs about his own life. Being brought up on good quality albums even comedy albums influenced him heavily. He reminisces on artists like Ludacris, who have big catalogs and even bigger personalities that shine through in their music.

Likewise, he’s looking to do everything in his music from having fun to delivering a

message. A well-rounded artist whose name anyone from the DMV can relate to and his

Trinidadian roots lend a secondary meaning to his moniker, God-like. Jahlike wants to bring back skits that make you laugh, adlibs with weird noises, and all of the other entertaining aspects of hip-hop music that have gone by the wayside. Like Biggie Smalls, Busta Rhymes, ODB, and Lil’ Wayne, he is eager to experiment and sees the value in constantly reinventing oneself artistically. Evolution and touching on all aspects of hip-hop is his goal.

Jahlike’s musical presence is being felt online through his debut single, “Mental (Break),” a song he credits with opening him back up to the world after finding himself in a really dark place. “Mental (break)” has been played nearly 48,000 times on Soundcloud. He also has “Cyber Grinding,” a smooth and groovy track with harmonization.

Though he’s working on a project to be released sooner than later, Jahlike wants to drop a few more singles. Doing what he loves and gaining as many eyes and ears as possible is his top priority. While he’s chill and laid back, music is serious business for the Maryland native. That’s why he plans on dropping music nonstop and helping to bring others’ creative visions to life. A years ago, Jahlike and his brothers, Nabu and Deemo formed a music collective known as ‘The Thr33’ whose purpose is to do just that. Together, they intend to open an entertainment company that provides a space for artists to create freely; whether producing, recording, or shooting videos. Through this venture, they’ll be putting on for themselves and the entire DMV.
