"Video: Tigga T “Cross Ova”"

For the last couple of years, local emcee Tigga T, aka Tamba McCarthy, has been working tirelessly to get his music heard. Since 2011, he’s released three Mixtapes: Fundamentals (2011), Visionary (2012) and African Boi (2012), and has shot several videos for songs on each release.

With each mixtape, he’s gradually gotten a little better, and has managed to incorporate more eclectic elements. His latest mixtape, African Boi, a reference to his West Africa origins, shows off some world beat flair, along with dancehall and Afro-pop, while still keeping one foot solidly planted in classic hip-hop. These elements are demonstrated best on his new video “Cross Ova”. - Metro Active


Still working on that hot first release.



         Tamba means the second born of the mother, is a name from the Kono tribe of Sierra Leone, West Africa, Tamba's homeland. Growing up in San Jose, California Tamba recalls getting his love of music from his father who would blast music early in the morning as a wake up call for the household, and would do so from his massive collection of music from many different genres. Being from a very close family, when family conflicts began during his freshman year of high school Tamba turned to the only thing that always represented fun, love, comfort, and happiness in his family, which was music. During this time Tamba started a movement called Forty Eight(48 Hour Hustle), which means hard work, all day and all night until you fully achieve your dreams. In this state of my mind, Tamba set up a home studio, where he began recording his own songs plus directing and editing his own music videos, in chase of that dream. At age 16 Tamba was given the opportunity to perform his original material on stages, he stated that it was a "life changing experience", and from that show he knew this is what he wanted to do for the rest of his lyfe. Music is where Tamba's heart is. In 2011 he dropped his first project Fundamentals The Mixtape, and in 2012 Visionary. Tamba has performed in over 50 shows in Northern California, and continues to expand his resume. In 2012 Tamba joined the Dance Hall group Wild Afri which has afforded him great experiences and opportunities. Currently in college while pursuing his dreams of internationally stardom, Tamba states I just thank god every day and stay on my 48 Hour Hustle... With not being able to tell the future you just have to believe and pray for the best. Writer, rapper, performer, and director, Tamba the young, ambitious, and passionate artist continues down a road to one day be as great as his most influential musical legends Michael Jackson and Bob Marley. #48HrHustla
