Interview with Artist/Songwriter Tre Digga

How did you come by your stage name?

Well, they spelled my name wrong on my ID when I first came to Canada, instead of “Tri” they put “Tre”. Back in the day one of my deceased homie, God rest his soul, commented “he gets his girls by the 3’s big Tre ” as well my mixed black and Spanish heritage played a role so “Tre” stuck. I always used to find my self doing some kind of dirt with my homies and dig my way out so that’s where “Digga” came from. But now I’m older and out of dirt, I just Digg out the girl’s guts now lol.

When did you discover your love for your craft and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in it?

I have always had a passion for the arts, entertainment, for the music, for it all. It sort of just started because I knew all the words to the songs on the radio, I would even recite it better than most kids my age. Eventually, my classmates would ask me to do it for them and ever since then, I’ve been working on my music, putting it piece by piece until I was able to actually call it my career and have it reach what it is now.

To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?

Well, I have never been a follower but I’ve definitely been inspired by a wide range of environments, and cultures I’ve experienced throughout my life. It is also a menagerie of different artist ranging from mainstream, to underground, from local, to foreign. All of that goes into the melting pot and construction of the chimera that is Tre digga.

On your current project, how did you come up with the concept?

My last project was called Qworantine Muzik. Shortly after I released Qworantine Love Muzik, and well I don’t really think that needs much explanation. It’s just music made during quarantine, well some of them. I stay busy working on music, projects on projects lined up, so you never gotta worry about that.

What are some of your greatest challenges, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?

Coming from Canada specially Calgary, Alberta there isn’t too much of a hip hop scene here. That has been the greatest challenge trying to find a way to get my music out. Now when it comes to my work ethic, it is something incomparable. I always take pride in any task that is set before me and I always try to exceed and over Excel, it’s almost to a fault. Let’s just say I don’t get a lot of sleep #millionaire life #billionaire dreams.

Are you the best at what you do in your opinion?

Because I put my heart into this, I don’t do this for the money or the fame, you take that all the way and I’d still be doing this. ( any A&R record companies that might be seeing this don’t get any ideas now I still want to get paid) You only need to listen to my single “Change” to answer that question. The biggest compliment I’ve ever received was from an A&R who told me that I should be submitting my music because I’d make Tupac proud. I’m the best just it wasn’t a self-appointed title, but I always have been the shit, it doesn’t depend on who you ask.

What are your plans for the near future?

Nothing but success baby! God willing but more music, more money mo problems lol. I’ve started my own label recently so that’s going to be up and coming, watch out for that Digg it ENT. I got some hot new artists on there and you guys won’t believe your ears when you hear them when they drop, so stay tuned for that. All-in-all just to make this and when I say “this” I mean my career go further than its ever been, further than anybody could ever imagine, from a little boy from Trinidad who moved to Canada with these aspirations.

Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout outs?

First of all I’d like to thank God because without him nothing is possible, I’d like to thank my mother rest her soul, for bringing me up here and pushing me to follow my dreams and to be able to eventually know this was what I should be pursuing, and for giving me the opportunity to pursue it. As well to every last one of my fans and supporters because they make it worth it . Also my future wife, wherever she is at on the globe thanks in advance for marrying me and putting up with my ass lmao hopefully we meet soon.

How can fans find you?

You can find me on Spotify, iTunes, or really anywhere that’s streaming music. A shout out to they were the first ones who started streaming me. My Instagram is officialtredigga, my website is to be up and running soon or you can always just type my name in your trusty google search bar.

What suggestions do you have for other artist like yourself?

Work hard, don’t stop, and depend on no one but yourself and God.
