He discovered his gift and it developed more while singing for the church choir. T-Rex decided to focus on having a music career and eventually moved to New York in 2003. His talent led him to an opportunity to sing background vocals for platinum-selling singer-songwriter/producer Lyfe Jennings. Being on the road with recording artist Lyfe Jennings, T-Rex learned how to navigate through the music industry. Once he got his feet wet, in 2015, T-Rex pursued his solo career. He teamed up with producers Lamar Casey and Burnie Stevenson, who helped executive produce and co-wrote his debut E.P. Together.

In 2020, T-Rex relationships open the door for collaborations with other artists. In 2021, he released his second project, The Package, which demonstrates his music growth and inspirational roots.
