Video: Tigga T “Cross Ova”

In Music

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”.
