Rapper Name at birth: Gerald Sandor Yusuf

Bronx, New York, the birthplace of Hip Hop, is where TAG spent the first decade of his life and developed his passion for Hip Hop. His parents were Guyanese immigrants who taught him how to survive in the world around him, while still maintaining his heritage. At the age of 11, TAG and family relocated to Fort Lauderdale, FL, where he was exposed to a diverse culture that enhanced his appreciation for music and performing arts.

TAG first started out writing poetry, but that wasn't enough. He wanted to be heard, so he began free-styling and battling with other talented individuals at his high school. It was there where he developed the skill to put together clever rhymes and thought provoking lyrics.TAG shined with his unique lyrics about current events and his life experiences. This helped him grow into the dynamic rap artist he is today. Like majority of his peers, TAG held a full time job, and went to school at night, and managed to fit studio time into his hectic schedule. Then, also like many of his peers became one of the growing statistics hit by unemployment. He saw this as an opportunity to immerse himself completely into his music to follow his dream. He knew it was going to be difficult to put off school and work temporarily, but he was determined to prove to himself, and his fans that he was focused on his success.

With music icons like Michael Jackson, Tupac Shakur, LL Cool J, Eminem, Nas, Kanye West, and Jay-Z to influence him, TAG develop rhymes into a unique sound. He released his debut compilation, “The Antagonist” in March 2009, displaying his song writing abilities with clever use of witty wordplay. He then later released is 2nd studio album “Tag The World” in April 2012, which bridged his thought provoking lyrics with a mainstream sound. TAG’s received much attention from this album; performing well over 100 shows throughout Fort Lauderdale, Miami and West Palm Beach, and being featured in a couple of industry magazines.

Being recognized and respected in the South is just the beginning. Being open minded to new concepts and ideas, and the changing world around him, makes TAG’s creativity and talent limitless in the studio, allowing him to continuously challenge himself to be better and to reach listeners of others genres. TAG is inspirational and enjoys working with others he can learn from as well as help; his ingenious qualities allow him to create his own successful path. He continues to learn more about himself through his music and his experiences, and is allowing these life lessons to fuel him while recording his 3rd studio album.
