Tae has dropped countless songs and has recently begun making his way into streaming platforms. Inspired by early 2000’s R&B and soul, he mixes his love of Hip/Hop and rap music. Resulting in a unique blend of natural melodies and cadence, screaming versatility, additional to his use of storytelling from reflecting upon his upbringing. Mainly, he seeks inspiration from artists such as Drake, YNM Melly, Young Thug, and Future.
