Tramel Gates also known as Tre'Gator has freestyles on mix tapes and hooks that are original, addictive and he can make even the most average of beats extraordinary with his skills. This is what separates him from the average rapper. His heart is the stage and gives his all to his fans and audience at every show he does. The source of his inspiration comes from a heart ruled by tragedy and triumph. His father introduced music to Tre' Gator at a very young age. Mr. Gates was in a band which Tre' Gator would go and see them rehearse and do any performances. Tre' Gator has always had a passion for music. In college he started as a backup dancer for a girl's group that was signed to a New Indie. Not to long after him dancing for them, did the manager find out Tre' Gators talent in rapping and signed him to N2SOUL Ent in St. Louis, Mo. Tre' Gator also was pursuing a career in professional football in college at Kansas State University. His professor claimed he possessed a gift and could excel as a song writer, although she had no clue at the time of his aspirations. He was later discovered and signed to Rap-A-Lot in House producer, Lemoyne "LA" Alexander. He was later introduced to a very unique group called 17th Floor also known as Chicagoland Hip-Hop/R&B band, which has been credited as the 1 touring hip hop group in the country. He has toured with them as a front male rap vocalist for the past 3 years, performing at more then 200 shows per year, such as TV-Good Morning America. 17th Floor band also worked with Usher on tour and TLC. Tre' Gator has now decided to go solo. With that being said he began working with Twista's in house production team, Chyna White, which has recently produced the likes of Keyshia Cole and Monica. Tre' Gator has also adopted a new style to his music that he calls "RAP ROCK" with this comes his newly established mind blowing band "ANIMAL". Pushing the envelope of what you may think conventional hip hop should sound like. In his own words "IF ANIMAL AINT DOING THE SHOW THEN THAT MEANS TRE' GATOR AINT DOING THE SHOW"

In the past Tre' Gator has opened for Outkast, JA Rule, Ludacris, Family force 5 (Rock band signed to Maverick) and has also performed for Ruff Ryders "Ride or Die" Party in New York City. There is no such thing as not being on point for Tre'Gator. He is, without a question, at the top of his game, being an artist of multiple talents. He aspires for a deal with a major or HOT Indie label or a distribution agreement. Confident but not cocky, he knows he has exactly what it takes to make it in the music industry and then some. True to the artistry, he writes all of his own material, will freestyle about anything at the drop of a hat, and produces some of his own beats. To put it loosely, he does it all, and he is not afraid to show and prove.
