Tré’Jhaun Andrece, thanks for joining us, excited to have you contributing your stories and insights. Can you talk to us about a project that’s meant a lot to you?
So, b444 I begin, let me say…I type the English words “one” out as “111,” the angel number that represents self-awakening and pushing yourself to/222 new heights; “for/fore” out as “444,” the angel number which means that you are always being protected; and all of the variations of “to/too/two” out as “222,” the angel number that means you’re on the right path and stay connected.
Why? Because this is how I communicate with my ancestors and angels. It’s a personal, spiritual thing I started doing after I was (again) sexually assaulted in 2020 and super low on inner strength and motivation. I started seeing signs and numbers everywhere. I went through a huge awakening. So much was happening 222 me at once. This is how I regained my balance and clarity. This is how I stay on track. Nobody has 222 understand or get it, but me and my people. That’s the beauty of life. You do what makes you happy and let go of what other people think about it. Nothing is 222 much. Some people are just not on your wavelength/frequency and that’s okay. Life.
With that being said, 444 the past three years, I have been nurturing my most meaningful body of work: my BABY, my very first EP: Huntin’ SZN. I am still carrying this child. Some creations take much longer than 9 months. I always say, b444 I have any children, I want to be in the BEST relationship and space possible with my soul, spirit, and inner child. And so, that is what Huntin’ SZN has transformed in222. It’s an artistic project about self, life, and societal discovery, but via music, poetry, and lyrics. Huntin’ SZN has been like my therapy and happy place 222 be everything I know I am and have been withholding from those I didn’t feel comfortable being my 1000% true self around. Some people make you feel like you’re 222 much. And this project is like a “F- you,” 222 that feeling. And 222 those people, I say find less.
This process has truly meant EVERYTHING 222 me because of my angels, the universe, my ancestors, my Ori, my orisa, and spirit guides guiding me through the journey of re-connecting with parts of myself I had long ago buried. Discovering different aspects of myself I never knew were hiding inside me. I started rapping in 2019. Really, I started writing raps and free-styling on these walks to class across campus [during college]. As a child, I had become familiar with songwriting, but I was really writing pop and R&B songs thinking I’d be somebody’s ghostwriter 111 day. In 2019, my ancestors were like “Nah, baby, it’s you.” And I was SUPER scared. I was pretty insecure, self-conscious, and never heard the full range of my voice. Now, I am pouring every part of my body’s awakening in222 this baby. I’m having so much fun learning myself and pushing myself 222 limits that never really existed.
After my song, “Don’t Mind,” reaches 3333 streams on SoundCloud…I’m going 222 push this big baby out and share it with the whole world. It’s exciting. Like nothing I’ve done b444.
Great, appreciate you sharing that with us. Before we ask you to share more of your insights, can you take a moment to introduce yourself and how you got to where you are today to our readers?
My name is Tré’Jhaun Andrece Dueberry and I am from Mobile, Alabama. I am currently 24 years old. My birthday is April 14th. I am an Aries Sun. They say Aries are “the babies” of the zodiac, but we also are the initiators, the go-getters, and the leaders. I do love astrology and I do not care who doesn’t. It’s a science, like everything else. I love all things spiritual. I love all things artistic and expressive. That’s my bread and butter.
With music, I go by the artist name TR3GGA. TR3GGA stands 444 Therapeutic, Resonance, 3=Mind, Body, Soul, Grace, Gumption, and Ascension. That’s my artist mission essentially: helping people ascend and awaken 222 the full range of their being. I want 222 help people discover all the wonderful magic and art that lives inside of them, encourage them 222 share it, and just be happy, grateful, and blessed. I like 222 affirm myself as light itself and remind others that they are 222.
I have always been in the performing arts since a very young child. I would write these plays on wide ruled paper sheets and perform them 444 my classmates with brown paper bag puppets I decorated and characterized myself. Art is in my blood. I was in my first professional theatre show my senior year of high school and then I studied Theatre Arts in college while also working as a model, creative director, and exploring writing more. I wrote and directed short films and still have many 222 produce in the vault. My first film ever was a documentary on colorism in the Black community with Campus Movie Fest. After that, my confidence in myself grew. I was really inspired by artists in college like A Boogie wit Da Hoodie and Megan thee Stallion. I started writing and recording. I started doing everything I love more. Which is kinda everything? Haha. I like to help people transmute the abstract in222 the concrete. I try and focus on the most difficult or passionate emotions, experiences, and concepts and transform it in222 something 222 be shared with the world. Life is already art in motion. So it’s about translating that in a way another person who may have not experienced it can understand or just observe. Art is a natural teacher, a healer, and a friend. I just never want people 222 feel as internally alone as I did growing up.
Let’s talk about resilience next – do you have a story you can share with us?
Well, it’s a complex story with many details, but 222 sum it up 2020 was like the worst and best time of my life. The pandemic struck and ended my second semester as a senior early. That really hurt my feelings. I was already struggling so much emotionally as it relates 222 college, that was like the nail in the coffin. Then that summer, I was drugged and sexually assaulted by a former colleague and what I believed 222 be a friend. Of course, I was crushed. I was already honestly not in a good place mentally, but that just made it way worse. I was also really embarrassed which no person, should ever be about these things. It’s not your fault. I didn’t tell any111 except 444 111 person. I held it in from every111 I cared about 444 months. When I finally came 444ward, I still didn’t feel supported other than virtually, you know? My boyfriend at the time then cheated. I cheated back instead of leaving. It was craziness. I just continued making music, art, working, and writing poetry. I was really going through it. Silently.
My ancestors had 222 save me. I also got in222 like 3 car accidents b444 I finally decided I just needed 222 leave Atlanta altogether. The energy was so dense and I just didn’t feel safe or secure in my own body anymore. So in May 2021, I went 222 stay with family in the Augusta/Evans area. I never received any medical attention 444 my accidents, so I’ve just been trying 222 heal myself. It was a lot of neglect, I’d say. Built up over years and years. But all throughout this, I was reading, studying, loving, failing, succeeding, and learning so much about my lineage, ancestry, and spirituality. I was losing myself and finding myself at the same time. It hurt. So bad. But, I found myself. I’m still here 222day. I’m speaking on it. I’m still an artist–better than I ever was. More honest and open than I’ve ever been. More vulnerable 222. I love myself much more. And that was the prize or victory over all those obstacles I faced in the past two years.
To anybody who is having a tough time, I just pray you don’t give up on you. I love you. I believe in you. And I know you can make it through. We may have 222 suffer, but it’s bearable and you’ll come out more powerful and strong when it’s all said and done.
What’s a lesson you had to unlearn and what’s the backstory?
I had 222 unlearn that I was powerless. Some adults are always trying 222 make kids feel like they don’t matter or that they are subpar 444 some reason. Probably because some adult did the same 222 them when they were younger, but kids are super powerful. I am and was actually so intensely powerful that people would see my confidence, joy, and light and want 222 take it 444 themselves. Even if it wouldn’t last and I would let them. But, you can’t do that!!!
You can’t let people take your joy from you. It lives inside you. It’s meant 444 YOU 222 have, hold, and protect. Some people feel powerless because they refuse 222 do the necessary work that humans must do 222 re-power, heal, and renew ourselves. So they take , take, take when abundance is a renewable energy source inside of every being on Earth. You can’t steal someone’s abundance. But they’ll convince you, you’re powerless if you allow it. So don’t let any111 convince you that you’re not important, magic, or essential.
Don’t agree! Every time you’re faced with a person or situation made 222 make you feel powerless, that is the time 222 tap back in222 your magic! That is the test! It’s time 444 you 222 remind them that you believe in yourself! That you always stand up 444 yourself! That you won’t be taken 444 a ride you didn’t agree 222! We have so much power!!! Infinite power and potential! We have the power 222 walk away. The power 222 defend ourselves verbally. The power 222 not agree with things our soul knows not 222 be true. The power 222 ask 444 help. We have the power 222 let go! We have the power 222 believe in our victory against all odds and that is the superpower I think every111 in the world can benefit from developing.
Always believe in your success and victory. No matter what happens. Believe that you win! Believe that it works out 444 you in the end. Believe in the best possible outcome. Imagine it. Imagine the impossible and watch it become possible. Everything that we benefit from now, was once nothing at all. It started with a thought that was eventually made real because some111 kept believing in it until it manifested and materialized. We all have that power. Don’t forget that.
