Taharqa - As The World Turns

When you press play on Taharqa’s new EP ‘As The World Turns‘ you know from the jump that you’re going to experience something special. The Illinois-born emcee is one of those artists who really pens meaningful thoughts and makes music with his poetry. This project has an unmissable West Coast vibe that is funky and smooth, and Taharqa has really done himself justice penning introspective bars and blending these with street narratives. You can tell his influences are artists such as Rakim, Biggie, Scarface, Cube and Pac.

All five tracks provide a different energy, making it a diverse and unique collection of high quality music and showcasing T’s ability to sound engaged and authentic on each and every instrumental that gets delivered. But, while the tracks all have a different angle, there is a cohesiveness to the project – it’s not just a handful of dope songs bundled together to give him something to release. If you’re a fan of that iconic West Coast sound, if Pac and Cube and even Kendrick are artists that you love to have in your headphones, then Taharqa’s ‘As The World Turns‘ is for you.
