Triple Play - Prodigal Son
Texas born, from humble beginnings in San Benito, TX Triple Play found himself faced with the perils of society growing up. Raised by his grandmother while his mother worked and attended school, he spent his youth in the streets surrounded by an abundance of drugs and questionable influences. In 1993 Triple Play relocated to Dallas, where his lifestyle continued a downward spiral. After dropping out of high school, it was the birth of his daughter in 1996 that got Triple Play off of the streets and working towards a better lifestyle.
Always fascinated by music with a dream of becoming an artist, Triple Play began working various low paying jobs, enrolled in college courses majoring in business and started focusing on his career. In 1999 Triple Play and his wife welcomed their son, and found further motivation for success in his family. It was at this point that Triple Play decided he wanted to become a business owner and began learning the ins-and-outs of the music business while fine-tuning his lyrical skills.
