This mini-doc takes you into a day in the life of T.R.3 as he introduces himself and members of IMG, and prepares for a show later in the night. This is just a first glimpse into his world and the IMG family. Shot, directed and edited through the talented eyes of Quite Frankly, scored and produced by Ariano for Popular Nobody LLC, this day is just the beginning for T.R.3 and IMG as they prepare to blow open the doors for the next generation of music. Welcome to the world of T.R.3 and IMG.
Every movement has a visionary and T.R.3 assumes that role with a humble, yet strong confidence. In a collective of equals, T.R.3 has been creating waves and garnering attention over the past year, not only for his own movement, but for the entire IMG crew. To boot, his recent single, “Statistics” off his most recent body of work,The Prelude EP, has been very well received, garnering over 90k streams to date. The well-deserved hype is only growing while T.R.3 prepares for his first official studio release with SoCal Hip Hop veteran, Ariano.
IMG (Instrumentalist Music Group) started in June of 2013. They are not solely a group, but more so a collective of young, optimistic artists ready to take on the world. Consisting of Naomi The Goddess, Creatrix, Lazaria, Amari Shakur, FatherPoet, Deshane Bankhead, FrankDex, JanuaryHigh and the leader of the ever-growing movement, T.R.3.

Atlanta artist T.R.3’s stirring new video for “Budget” perfectly captures the emotional mayhem of a romantic relationship hitting its breaking point. It also further proves that this is a young lyricist the world needs to keep an eye on.
The all-too-relatable frenzy of feelings and contemplation seen in these visuals is brought to life by director Malik Miller, who follows T.R.3 (of hip-hop collective IMG) as he pens his kiss-off letter and delivers it to his soon-to-be ex. And clocking in at just over two and a half minutes, the video is an absolute whirlwind, emphasized in part by the rapper’s straining vocals as he comes to terms with what’s happening.
For T.R.3, the “Budget” he’s talking about is a mental and emotional one tied to a lost relationship that’s no longer worth the toll it’s taking. It’s a realization he makes throughout his stream-of-consciousness verse, which hits especially hard when he raps, “Relationship fading/ I see the lies in your eyes/ When I look for your spirit, it’s vacant.”
