Trevant Jermaine Hardson[3] (born October 5, 1970),[4] best known by his stage name Slimkid3 (sometimes stylized as SlimKid3), is an American hip hop recording artist and record producer from Los Angeles, California.[2] He is best known as one of the four original members of The Pharcyde.[5]


Tre Hardson began his career in the entertainment industry as a dancer and choreographer under the moniker Two for Two with his two high school friends Bootie Brown and Imani. Two for Two made numerous appearances in music videos, but had its most notable exposure with a short stint on the television show In Living Color.

As a member of The Pharcyde, he has contributed to Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde, as well as its follow-up release Labcabincalifornia. He also worked on the third album Plain Rap with the two remaining members of The Pharcyde after Fatlip's departure. After the release of Plain Rap, Tre also decided to leave the group to pursue a solo career.

Since his departure from The Pharcyde, Tre would also go by birth name of "Tre Hardson" as well as "Slimkid3". He has also formed a band Faqawi which has accompanied him with his solo career.

In 2000, Tre Hardson released a limited edition CD entitled The Legend of Phoenix, which was a name he shortly performed under. In 2002, Tre released a solo album, Liberation on his record label Flying Baboon. His second solo album Slimkid3's Cafe was released in 2006.

In 2011, he released Another Day Another Dollar, a collaborative EP with DJ Nu-Mark.[6]
