Through a constant stream of releases and unflinching dedication to his craft, Tafia has set himself apart from the pack and is poised to have a breakout year in 2022. After catching the attention of Meek Mill with his authentic 2017 single “Street Fanci”, Tafia was extended an invitation to meet the Philadelphia artist and philanthropist on his yacht in Miami. Tafia and his crew pulled up on jet skis and were greeted personally by Meek who immediately started rapping all the words to Tafia’s song, showing an initial interest in signing him to Dream Chasers Records. In 2019, Meek inked a deal between Dream Chasers and Roc Nation, signing Tafia as the first artist to the label a year after the partnership went through. Tafia wasted no time once he was signed, dropping the conclusion to his Fanci mixtape series, Street Fanci 3 in May 2020, and then a joint EP with rising Florida rapper Major Nine, titled Fanci No. 9 in October of 2020. Last year, Tafia dropped a mixtape hosted by the iconic DJ DramaStreet Clarity: Gangsta Grillz, which featured acts such as Rick RossMeek Mill, and Bobby Fishscale. The tape not only showed the faith hip-hop superstars have in Tafia, but the natural presence he has on the mic. Standout records like “Benyhana”, the record with Ross & Bobby Fishscale, and “Break The Bank” featuring Meek Mill have set up Tafia perfectly leading into his debut album Mention My Name.

Fresh off the DNA World Tour with the Backstreet Boys, vara has teamed up with Timmons to disrupt the music industry with their style that can be described as an edgy mix of alternative/pop influenced by Billie Eilish and Avril Lavigne.

“Vara carries themself with such maturity, confidence, and poise, and possesses an emotional intelligence that’s quite indescribable,” says Jeff Timmons, who serves as a mentor/manager to vara.

“Vara has everything it takes to tackle the roller coaster ride of the entertainment industry, but it’s the other things they will do that excites me; the impact they will have on others with their music will undoubtedly be incredible, but the way they will empower and inspire others in their generation is something I hope to have the opportunity to witness.”

Putting his hometown on the map with his frank lyricism and heavy Lone Star State drawl, Wacotron is one of Texas’s most exciting rappers. Today, he shares Out The Blue, the highly-anticipated follow-up mixtape to his critically acclaimed 2021 project Smokin Texas. Highlighted by heavy trap production from Southside & 808 Mafia, among others, the 11-track effort establishes Wacotron’s status as the man in his city. He shares harrowing tales about life on the streets of Waco, weaving pearls of street wisdom and sly turns-of-phrase. 

Among project highlights are the dark Texas club anthem “Let Em Know,” as well as the heartfelt, guitar-laden “The Blues,” which finds the street veteran taking his sound in a new direction as he reckons with his past. Featuring appearances from Freebandz rapper Doe Boy and Atlanta mainstay Derez D’Shon and additional production from superstar artist/producer MarshmelloOut The Blue is available everywhere via Pick Six Records/808 Mafia.

Along with the new mixtape, Wacotron shares the video for “Game Time,” a highlight from the project produced by Project X of 808 Mafia. On top of a hauntingly hypnotic trap instrumental, Wacotron unleashes bar after bar as he warns his opps not to cross him: “I’m quarterback and I’m picking the blitz up,” he spits. In the DJ Black Messiah-directed video, Wacotron ignores ‘no trespassing’ signs as he proves he runs the streets of his hometown.

With Out The Blue, Wacotron plans to build on the success of his debut 2021 mixtape Smokin’ Texas, which received praise from ComplexHipHopDXDJ Booth, and more. He hasn’t been entirely quiet over the past year, though, as he’s made waves in the rap game with singles like “Raw” and “Free Mason” (each with over 4 million streams on Spotify). The Waco, TX native has also been an ambassador for central Texas rap, working alongside other Waco risers and boosting their careers while he becomes a star in his own right.

With the release of his sophomore project Out The Blue, Wacotron proves he’s an artist to watch in the bustling Texas rap scene. Stay tuned for much more from the young rapper in the near future.
