Tafia, the North Miami-born introductory signee of Meek Mill’s Dream Chasers/Roc Nation label, has just shared his new single “Na Na”. Tafia’s skills on the mic were self-taught while serving a 7-year sentence in federal prison where he encountered the legendary Fat Joe, whose high praise gave him the confidence to take his craft seriously. Since his release in 2015, Tafia has been flooding the streets with music and making some serious waves, including with last year’s DJ Drama hosted tape Street Clarity: Gangsta Grillz. Tafia is continuing that momentum with his braggadocios new track “Na Na”, putting his calculated cadence, unique flow, and knack for crafting memorable hooks on full display. The accompanying visuals for the song show Tafia playing the role of a gangster––single-handedly taking on his enemies and ending his night on a luxurious yacht, surrounded by women, jewelry & cash. “Na Na” is a clear-cut example of why Tafia has been hailed as one of the most exciting artists coming out of the South.
Through a constant stream of releases and unflinching dedication to his craft, Tafia has set himself apart from the pack and is poised to have a breakout year in 2022. After catching the attention of Meek Mill with his authentic 2017 single “Street Fanci”, Tafia was extended an invitation to meet the Philadelphia artist and philanthropist on his yacht in Miami. Tafia and his crew pulled up on Jetski’s and were greeted personally by Meek who immediately started rapping all the words to Tafia’s song, showing an initial interest in signing him to Dream Chasers Records. In 2019, Meek inked a deal between Dream Chasers and Roc Nation, signing Tafia as the first artist to the label a year after the partnership went through. Tafia wasted no time once he was signed, dropping the conclusion to his Fanci mixtape series, Street Fanci 3 in May 2020 and then a joint EP with rising Florida rapper Major Nine, titled Fanci No. 9 in October of 2020. Last year, Tafia dropped a mixtape hosted by the iconic DJ Drama, Street Clarity: Gangsta Grillz, which featured acts such as Rick Ross, Meek Mill, and Bobby Fishscale. The tape not only showed the faith hip-hop superstars have in Tafia, but the natural presence he has on the mic. Standout records like “Benyhana”, the record with Ross & Bobby Fishscale, and “Break The Bank” featuring Meek Mill have set up Tafia perfectly leading into his next project in 2022.
