Tamani Joy is a 22 year old artist from Baltimore, Maryland. Using a mix of hip-hop and indie music as a base, Tamani continues to experiment and grow with his sound so listeners can never be quite sure what to expect. Tamani brings us his emotion-filled music not only because it’s fun, but also because he feels it gives him a way to bring his perspectives and emotions to the masses. As a person who is mainly an introvert, music gives him a way to tell others what’s on his mind and how he’s feeling, hopefully giving them ways to know their feelings as well. Taking influence from the likes of Lauryn Hill, Kid Cudi, Crywank, Pharrell, J Dilla and MF DOOM, Tamani has a variety of worlds to pull from when working on new tunes. Originally a member of the RICH TOMMY Gang under the name rico rich, Tamani has managed to mature in his sound and continues to bring us new and exciting stuff to hear.
