Artist: TJ Tucker
Project: F R E E
London rapper/producer TJ Tucker is a creative that will not be boxed in. Bringing forth his brand of playful, fun-loving, rebellious alternative rap, the charismatic young man and surreal cartoon fan has all the tools to blow. Today, he releases his debut EP, F R E E.
The four track opus includes forward thinking, trap flavoured sounds that may harken back to the best of the movement on the other side of the pond, but Tucker makes it his own with endless wordplay and confidence.
Speaking to Viper about the project via email, Tucker said: “It represents the place where I’m at in my journey right now. Our collective VibesONLY is completely independent and we are just having fun being free creating with no boundaries. F R E E is just me outputting my personality, from the artwork to the production.
“I was inspired by the sound that artists like Playboi Carti and Madeintyo are creating in the United States, so why not bring it to the UK but make it ours? I hope people just let go and have as much fun listening as we did making this EP.”
