At the age of 7, under the supervision of her uncles, Brianna Perry made her first recording at the Poe Boy Music Group studios. Her frequent visits to the studio would accumulate the attention of rappers Trina and Trick Daddy, the former who would grant Perry a recording deal with Diva Records (Diva Enterprises/DP Entertainment). From there, Perry guest starred on BET's Rap City and made her rapping debut on Trina's Diamond Princess on the track "Kandi", which would attract the attention of Missy Elliott. Elliott would go on to sign Perry to her label, The Goldmind Inc., and feature the young rapper in various promotional concerts with her and Timbaland. Additionally, Perry would also make cameo appearances in a few of Elliott's work such as the music video to "Pass That Dutch" and her short-lived reality series, The Road to Stardom with Missy Elliott. In between cameo work, Perry would work extensively on an untitled debut album which tentatively comprised forty tracks and sole production from Elliott and Timbaland; however, the project was never released. In 2006, due to creative differences, Perry parted ways with Elliott on good terms.
In 2007, Perry readied a mixtape, Princess of Miami, with Slip-N-Slide recording affiliates and former mentor Missy Elliott. In 2008, Perry announced work on a debut album tentatively titled Girl Talk, alongside a film project with Malcolm in the Middle actor Frankie Muniz, however neither project was released. In 2009, Perry was shuffled to Flo Rida's label International Music Group, where she materialized a mixtape, The Graduation, and an underground single, "Boom Shacka", that failed to serve as a commercial release.
In 2011, Perry departed from Flo Rida's camp and went on to do further work with longtime family label, Poe Boy Music Group. That same year, Perry released the single, "Fly Kicks", alongside an accompanying music video. Its visual premiere on BET's 106 & Park would earn her a contract deal with Atlantic Records, and accumulate enough buzz to compose the mixtape Face Off. On December 20, 2011, Perry released the single "Marilyn Monroe", which featured production by frequent Missy Elliott co-producer, Cainon Lamb. The song would generally meet favorable reception from musical peers like Beyoncé, who featured the song on her official website. In 2012, Perry collaborated with SWV ("Do Ya"), Pusha T ("Red Cup"), and Victoria Monet ("Hate Ya Past"); the latter being featured on Perry's mixtape, Symphony No. 9: The B Collection. Additionally, Perry would go on to collaborate with Trina on a visual titled "Girl Talk".
In June 2014, Perry starred as a regular cast-member for the Oxygen reality series Sisterhood of Hip Hop, where a portion of her promotional material ("I'm That B.I.T.C.H.", "Since U Left") was previewed via various episodes. In 2016 she released T.O.B (Them Other Bitches)” that featured her co-star Lee Mazin, while she also featured in a series featuring Live Squad. In August 2016 she released the single Something To Live For that featured Stacy Barthe.

Greetings everyone, My name is Anthony Jones also known as GT3MP. I am a 32 year old Los Angeles rap artist. Music is definitely my passion and I wouldn’t rather do anything else.
I spent almost 12 years of my life behind bars due to decisions I made as a young adult. Since, I’ve truly buckled down and really started focusing on my music and honing in my craft.
I have music on all platforms as well as several videos on YouTube. Over the past year I’ve been working on my debut EP entitled “Under Oath & Tha Influence”, which is scheduled to be released earlier next year. This project is the epitome of where I come from, where I am now, and and where it is that I am going. My latest single “Dreamin bout Dollas ”continues to gain traction on all platforms with over 4,000 plays on Spotify alone.
As an artist I’ve continued to grow my fan base since I’ve gotten released from prison in 2018. I’ve been doing numerous features and continuing to grow as an artist.
Growing up I was always into music. I started off rapping at the tender age of 8 years young, and was introduced to the industry by two older cousins of mine. Since then, I pretty much haven’t looked back and continue to get better and better as not just an artist, but also as a man. Music truly inspires me to be better, to be the best version of my self. I feel like when it comes to being musically talented, it is my strong suit.
Outside of music, my passion is my family and God, and they both keep me both grounded and motivated. I don’t have many friends now days if any, just tons and tons of family, and I actually have a lot of family members that are industry and we all Feed off eacthother and motivate one another.
At one point in time I wanted to be a Gangster rapper. I compartentalized myself in a box for over 10 years, and once and I broke out of that, I started to grow as an artists. If I had one piece of advice to my fellow up and coming artists it would be, once as an artist, you recognize that there’s always room for improvement, then you will continue to improve. Never give up. I went to prison not long after my nineteenth birthday until I was almost 31 years old. When I first went off to prison, I thought my music career was over. Thankfully the game continues to evolve and I continue to evolve with it. Relevance is the key in this industry. For example, E-40, how has been able to keep up with the times? Relevance.
