CT is officially recognized as an artist possessing certain qualifications or meeting certain standards in hip-hop/rap/music period. So essentially CT is CERTIFIED talent. The artist combines southern slang/accent with a northern flow, hot lyrics and cold truth to produce his brand of music. His life experiences and the things he has learned from being a juvenile diabetic from the age of three to his struggles in and out of college and growing up in the slums make up for a lot of the cold truth in his rhymes and his creativity, inspirations and ingenuity make up for his hot lyrics. No matter the mood or movement of a song, Ct Certified will be worth listening to.
