Feeling a bit camera shy


An engaging and confident young man, full of wit and lip, Tafari – (who's name means "Fearless One") Buchanan, was born in Kingston Jamaica tomother Joan Porteous and Reggae vintage artiste Big Youth. Known for his unerring ability to see the truth of the matter and to speak it come what may. Tafari his other siblings at an early age
understood and enjoyed the life of an artist or musician. And so it was the norm for him and his brother Isat Buchannan to pursue a career
in this field. At age thirteen (13) Isat Buchanan formed the group THUG HYPE and they started making appearances at concerts and small
clubs. For four (4) years the demand on the teen circuit became enviable and customary, from then they knew they had created a base of
loyal fans.

Tafari became passionate about the music and decide to take it to another level. He braved the criticisms by living up to his very powerful birth name "fearless one" and entered the music world
professionally. He toured with his Dad two years ago, appearing on gigs in Europe, the United Kingdom and the United States as an opening
act. The experience gained from these performances has enhanced the ability to perform before a large audience. The enthusiastic
responses and encouraging reviews also motivated the young vibrant and energetic Hip Hop artist to work harder and so in January 2004 Tafari
took the decision to produce his own materials.

During this time Tafari collaborated with some of Jamaica's popular Dancehall Giants such as Lady Saw, Bounty Killer, Beenie Man, Vybz Kartel and Buju Banton. Working with these artists gave new meaning to Tafari's career and their encouragement further motivated the young
rapper to push on. His hunger for international recognition became his main focus and hence his decision to once again move on. He met multi-platinum Dancehall/Reggae Producer, Tony Kelly and started working with him out of his Florida studio. The combination gave birth to a more confident artist who would seem to have once again regained his composure and allow himself to comfortably settle down and just concentrated on making music.

The lyrical contents of his music sets him apart from his competition because a good story teller is one who speak about what they know.
