The R&B music scene is currently expanding and making room for all kinds of artist to express themselves more freely in the R&B world. We have many artists pushing new boundaries and expanding their idea of what R&B music is. We here at Music & Other Drugs like artist that push the boundaries, and artist that don’t sound cliché. Today upon our discovery, we found someone unique and someone that is not the most conventional in this genre. He goes by Tama Gucci, and he has been on the music scene for about a year now. Producing short covers and quick snippets, but it’s just enough to see the raw talent that lies within the singers voice. He brings along with the nostalgia of the 90’s using Windows 95 clipart, Tommy Hilfiger apparel, and things we all remember growing up in the 90’s. His beautiful heart wrenching song, “I NEEDED YOU” , is raw and authentic. It’s something that sounds painful yet beautiful and takes you to a place with the singer. You feel his emotion and you feel his words. Be sure to check out more of his music on his soundcloud. Press play to the singers, acoustic melody below.
