Hometown: Washington, DC by way of Togo, West Africa
Essential Listening: The Summer Years
Hailing from the District's Northwest, Tabi Bonney is one of several hometown heroes gracing the Trillectro stage. After breaking out in '06 with his DC anthem “The Pocket,” Tabi’s kickback style and sharp humor have established him as a staple in the city’s ever–growing independent scene, culminating in a deal with DD172 to release his flagship project The Summer Years. He combines Lupe’s consciousness with Wiz Khalifa’s hazy flow, and is known to have the baddest jawns co-starring in his self-directed videos.
