President T (formerly Prez T) started his career as a jungle/drum N bass, MC before joining legendary crew Meridian in the early 21st century. With his singular flow, deep-bodied tone, and gripping narratives, the rapper found equal success in solo and collaborative work: in addition to being a key member of both Meridian and Bloodline, President T's solo efforts included the classic mixtape Back Inna My Face (2008) as well as a collection of well-received albums throughout the 2010s.
Born in Birmingham but raised in Tottenham, London, President T found his footing on the live circuit, perfecting his flow and delivery in drum N bass sets through the '90s.
As these performances transitioned into garage, two-step, and eventually grime, the rapper found himself at the core of the emerging scene, linking up with local MCs to form the now-legendary Meridian crew. The group, taking its name from Tottenham's Meridian Estate, brought much of London's young talent under one banner, its roster including artists like Skepta, JME, and Big H (President T's brother).
