Tayfun is an upcoming rapper from Tottenham, North London, whose music video for trap banger ‘Figo’ just recently dropped via GRM Daily. The track takes influences from Tayfun’s Turkish background, with the grandioso trap production by SLVNG MAJOR and Patrick Osei (mastered by Chris Athens (Drake – Views), a juxtaposition of cultures, possessing a middle-eastern vibe on the chorus, accentuated by the genuine Turkish sounds of the Saz guitar, which Tayfun plays himself! Tayfun’s lyrics explore Tayfun’s unsettled upbringing, his captivating story telling lyricism honest and upfront about his troubled soul. The music video, courtesy of director Teeeezy C of Frankincense and Myrrh, is a compelling, cinematic visual in which Tayfun can be seen carrying himself like a star already.
Growing up in a family that was well known for crime, Tayfun slipped in to a number of situations that made him question which path to choose. Biding his time, he made the decision to travel Europe where Tayfun found salvation in music and subsequently acknowledged it as his true destiny. As well as the pride in his Turkish heritage, Tayfun is inspired to share his story and struggle with other young people, particularly the Turkish youth he feels will relate to him, and inspire them to fulfil their own destinies.
‘Figo’ is an impactive debut for Tayfun, and his cultural influences set him apart from his counterparts in the UK Rap Scene. Emerging from the North side of London, Tayfun may just be one to watch in 2017!
