Big Tray Deee Facts
- Before joining the music industry, Big Tray Deee was an active gang member. He had been a member of the Insane Crips gang in Long Beach, California. The Crips, of which Insane Crips was a member, was an alliance of street gangs based in the coastal regions of southern California. It was founded in Los Angeles in 1969.
- He was featured for the first time on Snoop Dogg‘s Murder Was the Case soundtrack in 1994, guest-starring on the track 21 Jumpstreet. He had also been featured on the artist’s 2nd studio album, titled Tha Doggfather, in 1996.
- In 1999, he had joined the Platinum-selling hip-hop group Tha Eastsidaz. The group had released 2 albums – Tha Eastsidaz (2000) and Duces ‘n Trayz: The Old Fashioned Way (2001). Around the same time, he was also affiliated with car club-street band The IV Life Family. He had later signed up with their record label IV Life Records.
- In February 2005, he had been sentenced to 12 years in prison on charges of attempted murder. The charges had pertained to a violent incident in 2003 wherein he was alleged to have fired at members of a rival gang. After the hearing over the incident had been completed and the sentence had been announced, he was imprisoned at California Men’s Colony, a male-only state prison located northwest of the city of San Luis Obispo, in San Luis Obispo County, California. After serving about 9 years of his 12 years jail sentence, he had been released in April 2014.
- In 2014, having released just 1 solo album thus far in his career (The General’s List (2002)), he had announced that he would be releasing his next studio album in 2016 – The 3rd Coming (2016). In this period, he had released 3 mixtapes – Long Beach State of Mind Vol. I: The Mixtape (2014), That’s My Work Vol. 4 (2014), and Long Beach State of Mind Vol. II: Street Officials (2016).
- The first of these mixtapes, Long Beach State of Mind Vol. I: The Mixtape (2014), was recorded while he was still incarcerated, on a phone, in a makeshift vocal booth made from blankets and boxes in his prison cell. He had continued to write songs and record some other material during his 9-year jail term which was released after he had been freed in April 2014.
