Hey The Official T.N.T! Can you start by telling us more about yourselves and your upbringing into music?
Each of us have been attached to music in different ways throughout our lives, whether it was writing it, listening to it, studying it etc. We all came together at the end of 2018 figuring out similarities such as our age, our family structure, our goals, and also, when we came together we realized we had not only potential, but talent, in the same category. Music. In which was exciting, challenging, fun, therapeutic, keeping us out of trouble and was bringing some attention we never would've thought to us.
How did you create your stage name?
We figured out our own names individually. As for a group, we were all in the studio writing out our track spots, and had out names abbreviated to (T.N.T) to shorten. As we said it out loud we all realized that could be our name. And ever since then we liked it and have been The Official T.N.T.

What’s the meaning behind your track “Whoa”?
We seen the results off Bad Boy, and kind of realized what things could really be. What this could really become. Like "Whoa". Awakening in a way. Then, next track came out as "Whoa."
What’s your favorite lyric in “Whoa”? Why?
Beginning of each verse: Nonymous's - "Get the f*** up out the way, I can hit it any day"
This is when Nonymous hit the ground running and got his sort of savageness to his style and really stuck.
& TC100's- "Lost Trevor but he's back and better, black sweater bolt action lever."
This symbolized TC100's sense of refining himself when the music started up, fitting perfectly with Nonymous's savageness, and the whole production and background, meaning wise, of Whoa.
What can we expect from The Official T.N.T next?
There are a lot of things being brew'd right now. But what's next next? "L.A. To OAK"
