A lot of artists, when they start off, sort of emulate their influences,” Alsalman explained. “But [Taigenz’s] project resonated as genuine, it was definitely him.”

About Taigenz

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.

Journal du Hip-Hop

Cet artiste est l’une des plus belles découvertes de l’underground

Le hip hop c’est bien plus qu’une multitude de clashs et de conflits qui divertissent les masses. Le hip hop est une culture, une entité épanouissante qui se trouve sur une trajectoire de progression positive constante.

Plusieurs rappeurs indépendants tentent de se frayer un chemin et de capter l’attention de plus d’auditeurs possible. 

C’est pour cette raison que nous utilisons notre plateforme pour établir le catalogue des rappeurs à surveiller qui ont le potentiel de se bâtir des carrières formidables. Il est donc un honneur pour nous de côtoyer ces artistes dévoués qui cherchent à se faire valoir dans la scène. 

Aujourd’hui, la rédaction du JDHH vous présente le rappeur Taigenz. Le Québec est bourré de rappeurs capables de créer des bangers avec des couplets et des refrain percutants. Taigenz est l’un de ceux qui produit de la musique de qualité et qui se trace un chemin unique.
