Raised in the rolling hills of Chattanooga, Tennessee – YGTUT is an established singer/songwriter specializing in neo-soul and southern bounce. After co-founding “theHouse” with TDE’s Isaiah Rashad, Tut released his debut and critically acclaimed project Preacher’s Son. The project received glowing reviews and a firm Pitchfork score of 7.3. Since releasing his debut project, YGTUT consistently performs at venues throughout the United States, often times with a live band.
Born Kevin Adams, his stage name, T-U-T, is an acronym for “The Understood Truth.” In 2010 while attending MTSU, YGTUT and Isaiah Rashad formed a collective of musicians called theHouse. Filled with talented in-house producers, diverse MC’s, and a shared love for southern hip hop, theHouse has established itself as an immensely talented creative collective with an international following. Members of theHouse include TDE signee Isaiah Rashad, Michael DaVinci, Chris P, and Brian Brown – in addition to producers Ktoven, Black Metaphor, and D. Sanders.
Since Preacher’s Son released in 2015, YGTUT has fostered a devoted cult following that actively engages with his music across all streaming platforms and social media. With his heavily anticipated follow up project near completion, TUT, aims to expand upon the unique southern bounce sound he has established.
