Working to Build a More Positive World Through Rap and Engineering

On any given night, you might find Tyree Edwards in his closet, sleeping bag over the door to help with sound isolation, recording a new track. It will almost certainly be in the wee hours of the morning, when creativity peaks for the graduating Georgia Tech civil engineering student.

Edwards creates the beats, writes and raps the lyrics, and mixes and masters the finished tracks. Then his video production business — a partnership with his brother and best friend — creates the music videos.

He calls his music “Caribsoul” — a mix of hip-hop drums with Caribbean- and reggae-inspired rhythmic elements and a splash of melodies similar to R&B and soul. And it’s all focused on messages of positivity and love.
