Back in September, StayUp.News editor-in-chief Roberto E. Alejandro had the opportunity to sit down with Baltimore emcee Tahmar (above, in a courtesy photo), who released his ‘Tahmar Tuesdays‘ mixtape last October. In our interview, Tahmar touches on his music, fatherhood, and the need for greater balance in today’s Hip-hop.
