Tam brings YEG to the World with Fundraiser Release Party [News]

Edmonton, AB – Edmontian rapper Tam is dropping his latest album, YEG to the World on Jun. 19. Though Tam has been around the globe during his career as a professional soccer player, he has nothing but love for his hometown. After travelling in Spain, Greece, Turkey, and beyond, Tam returned to Edmonton to dish out a banging new 13-track mixtape with some of Canada’s favourite music personalities. Make sure you peep the video for Tam’s stellar collaboration track with Choclair, “Brand New.” YEG to the World also includes collaborations with producers J Soul, Kaz Mega, BMoney Grenier as well as Drake’s producer, Snaz. Tam also teamed up with fellow Edmontonian MCs Muta, JoThrillz, Deuce Fantastick and Arlo from the Politic Live crew for an all-encompassing album that spotlights the creme de la creme of Edmonton’s hip-hop scene.
