T-Kid started in the 1970s, tagging the name "King 13." He was a short lived member of a gang called the Bronx Enchanters and The Renegades of Harlem, where he learned how to paint trains.

He later became the president of TNB (The Nasty Boyz) and ex-president of TVS (The Vamp Squad), one of the most notorious New York graffiti crews. T-KID is still active and his work can be seen in the Bronx as well as around the world. He is also a member of MAC crew from Paris. T-Kid was originally asked to be the narrator for the Hip-Hop documentary Style Wars but he declined.

T-Kid has appeared in Marc Ecko's 2006 video game, Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure. Also in the book "The Terrible Nasty T-Kid 170," which chronicles the artist's life from childhood to the present and features pictures of his work by graffiti photographer Henry Chalfant. He also appeared in the Graffiti Documentary 'Bomb it' - directed by Jon Reiss.
