To send the song completely over the top, the Collab King lands one of his biggest features yet alongside the Queen Bee, Lil Kim.
Produced by Australia’s Dcypha, he blends eighties styled keys and synth strings all over simplistically laid drums. Taiyamo handles the first and third verse, speaking about what his definition of a “Fabulous Life” is. Lil Kim arrives in true high fashion status for the second verse, rapping the kind of braggadocios flows that earned her a spot among the top tier femcees. The Genius adds in the perfect amount of R&B pizzazz to give the “Fabulous Life” it’s appealing commercial allure.

Cypha Den Music and The Beatnuts combine forces to slay swag rap on their collab effort, “Stand Back”. Taiyamo Denku has been rhyming since before Tim Allen was Santa Clause and Psycho Les of The Beatnuts has been crafting beats since before many famous rappers of today learned how to crawl. With that said, it was only right that these two Hip Hop veterans team up for the die hard sounds behind this single found on Denku’s forthcoming album, “No Industry Standard”. The song now has an official video to back it and i comes from the mind of none other than, Wes Tank.
The video mixes Boom Bap, MMA, the northside of Milwaukee and ill silhouette edits to create a stunning Hip Hop presentation that any true backpacker will greatly appreciate. Denku spits a chorus in legendary, old school Hip Hop fashion. He kicks the hook off with, “stand back (back up), don’t come any closer / I set fire to any track I come close to”. Each verse is overflowing with rhymes and is sure to have you hitting the rewind button to decipher many times over. The video is available on YouTube and Facebook. “No Industry Standard” is set to arrive this coming June.
Taiyamo Denku and Conway The Machine smash the term “fake it to you make it” with their collaborative effort, “Be Who You Are”, produced by Dcypha
“Be Who You Are” is the lead off single from seasoned Milwaukee emcee Taiyamo Denku’s forthcoming album, “No Industry Standard”. To properly set the flame to the project’s wick, the collab king tag teams a moody Dcypha production with Griselda Records own, Conway. The pair speak on killing trends, keeping it all the way real and staying true to self, something both men have done thru their lengthy career stretch.
Not just another dope Hip Hop cut, Denku and Conway utilize the chorus to tell two separate, autobiographical stories of the streets. The revered Hall N’ Nash spittah kicks rhymes circling around his New York state of mind. Taiyamo approaches things from a semi-similar angle and rhymes about the cold streets of his hometown, Milwaukee. Denku goes in depth on his love for his city and never succumbing to the darker side of the area.
The single couldn’t have came at a better time when we have the next generation of Hip Hop brainwashed by prescription drugs, viral trends and the same old redundant auto-tuned music from the next Lil something or other. The message in the song is simple, no matter where you are or what you have going on, simple “Be Who You Are”.
Aside from the new single, Conway recently debuted the hard bodied, ten track “Blakk Tape” alongside producer, Daringer.
Taiyamo Denku’s “No Industry Standard” will feature some heavy duty features. You can catch him trading bars about the good life alongside Lil Kim on “Fabulous Life”, mass murdering emcees aside legendary artists such as KRS One, Chino XL, Royal Flush and Saukrates – among others. Make sure to stay tuned for upcoming singles, videos and the official album drop throughout the 2018 time span.
