Pierre Cadore — AKA Pierre the Gentleman, AKA PTG

Pierre the Gentleman, out of Guilford College and UNCG via Brooklyn, NY and Miami, comes to Page Three at the behest of his label, Isore Records, with which he’s been affiliated since 2003 as the flagship performer. His celebrity comes through the underground mixtape circuit, with The Mixtape Takeover, The Volcano and The Meltdown, and his new Official Mixtape, which contains the single “Watch Out.” He’s opened for such acts as Slick Rick, Nappy Roots and Little Brother, and you can hear him online on internet radio stations originating in 32 states and 10 countries, as well as his alma mater’s station WQFS. And he brings a decidedly literary bent to his rhymes. “Music is an open book,” sayeth the Gentleman. “I just write the chapters out.”
