Taigenz (pronounced Tayg-enz) is a Montreal born and based Hip-Hop recording artist/performer. His African heritage (Cameroonian parents) blended with the North American culture is the primary influence behind his artistic expressions. Sonically, he ranges from Trap to R&B to Afro-beat. His vocal tone is reminiscent of a young 50 Cent. Lyrically and visually, he is often compared to a Wale and a Burna Boy, respectively.
In fall 2019, he released the album, Life Ain't Free, via a distribution deal with Slammin Media/Believe Distribution Services. "The message behind this project was that nothing in life happens for nothing," he says. "All the work I put in will come back to me in some way, shape or form, I just need to recognize when it happens."
Standout singles from the album such as "Lemme Ball" and " Speak The Truth" have allowed him to reach an international audience with over 100,000+ streams coming from countries like Brazil, Turkey and Spain. In 2019, he dubted on the iTunes Turkey Top 200 Hip-Hop charts (peak position #45) with "Satisfied", which was originally released in May 2017.
