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.
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 debuted on the
iTunes Turkey Top 200 Hip-Hop charts (peak position #45) with “Satisfied”, which
was originally released in May 2017.
Since the pandemic, he has kept consistent with fans with a series of virtual
performances along with diversifying his social media content with reels, skits
and live streams.
He is the winner for “Best Infused Hip-Hop Song” at the Indie Grind Music Awards
for his 2021 standalone single “Foolish Money”. With "Pas Idée" off his latest EP "Life A Life" (Spring 2022) currently on heavy rotation on SiriusXM, he has since followed up with the Deluxe Version of the EP (Winter 2023).
