Born in Lomé Togo, West Africa, and based in Washington, D.C., rapper Tabi Bonney -- the son of musician Itady Bonney -- began rhyming in high school and formed the group Organized Rhyme while in college.
The group released material independently and opened for several big-name acts. Maintaining his affinity for the likes of the Native Tongues camp and other forms of non-hardcore rap, Bonney released his first album, A Fly Guy's Theme, on the Organized Rhyme label in late 2006. One track featured an appearance from Raheem DeVaughn. He has also maintained a fashion line called Bonney Runway. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
