WHO: The son of afro-funk superstar, Itadi Bonney, Tabiabuè Bonney, (better known as Tabi Bonney) couldn’t help but follow in his father’s famous footsteps and pursue his love of music. He says, “Music has always been a part of my life. I knew that I was going to be an entertainer at a very young age.”
Rapping since he was in high school, Tabi started refining his skills in college, forming a group, organized Rhyme with close friend, Haziq Ali and opening for well-known artists such as LL Cool J, Camron and OutKast. Recording a few independent singles and releasing the self-titled underground classic, Bonney & Carter.
WHY I LOVE IT: On the mic, Bonney is at his most unapologetically successful, letting the haters know that he sees them, but they can’t block his view of the future: “Self motivated / lyrically levitated / someone told me don’t look back until you know you’ve made it.” Terri Walker completes nicely with an angel-wing smooth hook.
