Man We Love: Tabi Bonney

Written By: Nani Hapa—The son of afro-funk superstar, Itadi Bonney, Tabiabuè Bonney, (better known as Tabi Bonney) couldn’t help but follow in his father's famous footsteps and pursue his love of music. He says, "Music has always been a part of my life. I knew that I was going to be an entertainer at a very young age."

Rapping since he was in high school, Tabi started refining his skills in college, forming a group, organized Rhyme with close friend, Haziq Ali and opening for well-known artists such as LL Cool J, Camron and OutKast. Recording a few independent singles and releasing the self-titled underground classic, Bonney & Carter, Tabi has been a mainstay of Washington, DC's hip-hop scene, since. In his most recent video for Nuthin But A Hero Tabi is on the hunt for his super-girl, any takers MIMI-istas?
