ON THE RISE: TAFARANKING

Nemokush 98 is the sophomore and ultimate mixtape by teen artiste Tafari. It was recorded from April 2015 – April 2016. Although song writing primarily began in 2012. The mixtape mainly consists of dancehall vibes with a little bit of hip hop.

The expertly constructed mixtape was inspired by Tafari's willingness to come up with something better than his previous mixtape 'Principium' . Despite the incessant criticism, Tafari didn't relent in his work rather it made him more dedicated to releasing this incredible mixtape. check out his ON THE RISE interview and get to know him better......
