Hailing from Brownsville, Brooklyn Taphari got his start in the underground queer club scenes of Bushwick.

His live performances are explosive dance parties and an aggressive call to action. Truly charismatic on stage, music is Taphari’s most efficient means of communication. He writes of his struggles as a young loner from the hood seeking asylum in laughter, queer expression, hip-hop, and the internet On 'Blind obedience' we find Taphari on a journey of self-actualization, transcending suffering through the power of self-love and authentic musical expression. this hard-hitting,confident debut centers the skilled rapper's syllable hopscotchover mutating beats. staying in a lane he's forged himself, the rap alien's rage is explosive out the gate. on lead single "Table42" featuring seasoned rapper pink siifu, taphari sings of lost love and the end of the world over drum 'N Bass beats. "Backsoon" featuring label mate Benét is a generous breath from this kinetic collection of bangers. // "brooklyn's best rap alien" – Noisey // “...bars of pure venom over a dark ambient beat produced by pH thatsounds like a buffering stream of a summoning ritual.” - the FADER.
