Born, Theo O. Smith, one of three children, has spent most of his musical life in the Garrison of Flankers located in Montego Bay, Jamaica’s second city.
After coming to live in Flankers in 2003, Theo entered into an atmosphere where music and aspiring artiste were everywhere such as the now popular group Merrital (My Money Ha Ha). Being a youngster without much guidance or help to pursue a traditional career Theo fooled around with a few rhymes, and after getting a favorable response from friends and family, Tall P was born. He then proceeded to record a few demo tracks for Kendah Entertainment in 2006, due to the fact that the label was busy with other projects Tall P was placed on the back bench. But Tall P did not stop writing new songs. The label heard a few fresh materials from Tall P in October 2009, and decided that it is now time to place much more emphasis on him, so music fans can now look out for a shockwave across the island of Jamaica.
Tall P and his management team are now in the process of shooting a video for his latest release "Everyday" which is slowly becoming a radio favourite. This track will definitely have dancehall lovers shouting "Everyday".
Tall P sights Buju, Sizzla, I Wayne, Taurus Riley, and Idonia as his mentors. His goal is to become one of the biggest if not the best artiste out of Jamaica by the year 2015. With an accomplishment like that Tall P vows to give back to the less fortunate and to help youths who don't have much opportunities, to achieve their goals in life.
