Dantae Tillman, a.k.a TCM Pain is a musician by profession and has brought to life his distinct sound in Modern Hip-Hop with his use of emotional verbiage in his unique melodies. He started making music at the age of 20 as an escape mechanism as he was suffering from heartbreak, depression and anxiety. He wanted to use music as a creative outlet for him to express his feelings in a healthy, positive way. His self-proclaimed alias, “9”, mainly generates from his deep connection with Numerology- the vibrations and meanings of numbers.
He was born on 18th April, 2000 and is 21 years old. He hails from New Orleans, Louisiana and follows christianity as his religion. His zodiac sign is Aries. Pain has a fairly lean body and stands at a height of 6ft 1inch (1.85m) and weighs around 86kg (190lbs). He has beautiful brown eyes and black hair.

He is best known for his debut hit-single “Ain’t Too Late” , which has accumulated nearly 10 thousand streams. He is also known for his single- “For My Heart Too” (December 2021), in which Pain tells the story of how he did it all for the person he loves and how everything he does is for that person. He believes it’s never enough because love is a rather unique illusion because what it means to one person is entirely different to another. Pain tells us in so many words that he can’t afford his love for her because he feels he’s giving his all to that person and they are playing along and not reciprocating.
Because Pain does not see any commitment to him, he feels he is better off alone. TCM Pain is seen expressing himself in his music video as he is in the bitter winter, outside by a lake where he can assure himself some peace. With only the melodic guitar rhythm, and his soothing emotional lyrics, he walks us through his prolonged heartbreak. “You had me down, now you asking for a wedding ring. Marriage mad overrated, I would rather be a king”. Pain gets into how his lover expects him to pledge loyalty to her and marry her when she broke his heart through manipulation. He breaks down how he would rather be a king and take care of himself.
He has also garnered around 3.5K followers on Instagram. Here is his Instagram handle- https://www.instagram.com/tcmpain/
