Triple Seis

Triple Seis

Triple Seis (born in 1972) is a rapper of Dominican descent from The Bronx, New York, who was a formerly the member of the Hip hop group "the Terror Squad". Prior to his involvement in Terror Squad, Garcia was a member of the Full-A-Clips-Crew rap crew along with artists Big Pun and Cuban Link.[1]

Career

Triple Seis began originally as a member of Ruff & Ragged with Big Pun (aka "Big Moon Dog") and Cuban Link (aka "Lyrical Assassin"). After a while, they were joined by Prospect (aka "Toom"), the four became Full-A-Clips Crew[4]. They ended up performing at all the local shows, strip joints, wherever they could get a show.[3]

Then, they did a contest, and got hooked up with Fat Joe to form Terror Squad. Triple Seis also featured on the solo albums of fellow Squad members, Fat Joe and Big Pun. In '87, Pun came out with the single "You Ain't A Killa," and from then on, they were just on their way up the ladder of success with the run.

Triple Seis left Terror Squad shortly after the death of Big Pun in 2000, eventually signing to Madd Records, who released his debut album, "Time'll Tell" in 2004. Triple Seis has also worked with The Beatnuts, M-Boogie and DJ Honda.[3] Also, He has been played on NTS shows including Ted Draws, with Beatnuts Forever first played on 10 April 2018.[5]

Triple Seis Leave Terror Squad

Triple Seis left the Terror Squad after the death of Pun because he felt he had to sort things out on his own with no affiliates:

As soon as Pun passed away, I decided to leave Terror Squad.

So I sat down with Joe, and told him why I was leaving — well I didn't really tell him why, but I just told him basically that I wanted out.

His response was that if I do leave, I can't use anybody from Terror Squad to try to make it, I've gotta do it on my own, no affiliates.

That's what happened between us, and I left like a week after Pun passed away.

Even before Cuban did the song "Flowers for the Dead," before all of that recognition they got after Pun passed away, I wasn't involved.

And if you do the history and look at the videos, or any shows, I wasn't there.[2]

Albums

  • Only Time Will Tell

  • Capital Punishment (Explicit Version)

  • Y2k The Album (Deluxe Version)

Personal Life

He goes by the name of Triple Seis because he claims to be a beast, playing off the idea of the "mark of the beast", 666.

He is driven by ambition.

As an old school dude, he doesn't really listen to rap songs but loves the likes of Rakim and Big Daddy Kane.[2]
