Long Version:

Tehondi Hiatus Days Over Album Cover.png

Terrence Dillon, or as he is known in the industry, Tehondi (Teh-hon-dee), is a true poet and independent Hip-Hop artist based out of Chicago. Growing up in a rough neighborhood, Tehondi’s life was a constant barrage of combating bullies, escaping the gang-violence which poisoned the streets, and lamenting his poverty stricken community. The negativity and hatred he experienced every day sparked a dream within him. Tehondi wanted to find a way to build a social movement. He began to walk a new path and seek a better understanding of human nature and connectivity. He knew that one could not wait for a hero to save the day, he had to be the one to bring about the change he wanted to see.

So Tehondi turned to poetry to express his thoughts. It became his outlet, his tool, and his weapon. He competed twice in Chicago’s largest poetry competition “Louder Than A Bomb” and received rave feedback. After high school Tehondi turned to music to help enforce his art. Much like his poetry, his music was driven by the sorrow he felt and his desire to escape the violent world around him. But that negative desire grew into a beacon of hope. Tehondi decided to turn his pain into something positive; something that could help make the world a better place. His goal was to make music that let the people who feel unwanted and discarded know that they aren't alone. His movement’s main message it to encourage people to take action in their lives and not just be a victim of their circumstances.

In 2014 he released his debut album “Become The Savior”, an album focused on providing positive messages and abstract thoughts utilizing hard-hitting trap style beats. Notable tracks from the album include “Find A Reason”, “Won”, and “Die A King Not A Savage”. On July 7th, 2015 he released his single “Pain (I Wanna Live)”. Exactly 2 years later he released his latest single "Acquitted (No Justice)"; a song expressing his discomfort and conflictions with the police and justice system.

Tehondi is creating a solid musical catalog that mixes hard hitting beats and ear catching hooks, with his fast flowing and motivational lyrics to create truly uplifting hip-hop music. Being nearly 4 years since his 1st album release, Tehondi has finally announced that his sophomore album "Hiatus Days Over" will be released September 28th, 2018. An album he best describes as his journey of building a winner mentality & the struggles he faces trying to dominate the world. “It’s do or die” according to the performer. Leading up to the album, Tehondi released 4 singles: Tehondi-San, 95, Call You Later (with a lyric video) & The Jungle. HDO is available for Preorder now on iTunes, Bandcamp & Amazon!

Notable Media Mentions

This year alone, Tehondi has received press on RhymeHipHop, OK-Tho, Imagela Powers, The Music Butcher and Urban Vault UK

“This new song displays Tehondi’s skills on the mic. In all aspects of the track Tehondi has a great presence; his bars, his chorus, and his energy all are very impressive. The track is all about his grind and how badly he wants to be successful. He questions the listener if they are willing to pay the price to become successful like he has. If anything, you have to respect the hustle of this young artist. This latest track is a great listen and we are very excited to see what else Tehondi has in store for us next.” (RhymeHipHop in reference to Pay the Price single: http://rhymehiphop.com/tehondi-pay-price-stream/ )

" His verses tell his own stories of struggle and determination that has brought him to where he is today. This is a classic head-bobbing hip-hop track that can play in the streets, and also has deeper intellectual meaning." (The Music Butcher in reference to Pay the Price single: https://themusicbutcher.com/2018/03/07/tehondi-pay-the-price/)
