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 debuted on the iTunes Turkey Top 200 Hip-Hop charts (peak position #45) with “Satisfied”, which was originally released in May 2017.
