Biography[edit]

Early life[edit]

Tasha was born in Fort Hood, Texas to a Korean mother and an African American father of Black and Scottish ancesty. She often faced discrimination because of her mixed heritage. Her father, Thomas J. Reid, was a DJ when she was young, so she naturally became acquainted with music. Tasha also lived in Fort Lewis, Washington for a while.

Career[edit]

In 1995, she started to organize members for the group that would become known as Uptown. They debuted in South Korea in early 1997, when Reid was just 17.[2][dubious ]

In 1999, she also formed Tashannie, a hip-hop and R&B project for which she was the primary vocalist, alongside Annie Lee. From there, her lyrics and bars started to gain her a lot of attention, and so her popularity grew.

After a scandal involving marijuana that forced Uptown to break up in 2000, Reid prepared to debut as solo artist. In 2001, she began her solo career under the moniker T. She worked with various producers on her 1st solo project including, John Earl Watley III from Los Angeles, now in Japan.

She was one of four judges for the third season of Superstar K, and as of October 2012, is also judge for the fourth season.

Personal life[edit]

Reid speaks Korean and English fluently, and is the ambassador and spokeswoman for a multi-cultural youth organization.

In June 2007, she married Tiger JK (member of Drunken Tiger).[3] They have one son named Jordan.[4]
