Seattle artist and a recent Bloc Star Entertainment signee Macntaj releases his long-awaited debut album, Trappy Gilmore 2.
A follow up to the fan-favorite mixtape Trappy Gilmore, Macntaj continues to deliver hard-hitting bars and crisp delivery over trap-influenced production. First breaking onto the scene with his collaboration with Bassnectar, Macntaj has since been killing stages all over the country, all while building up a cult-like following in the Northwest region. Originally hailing from Sacramento, Macntaj has received praise and love from the regions OGs such as X-Raided, C-Bo, Brotha Lynch Hung, and more. Last week Macntaj dropped the captivating visuals for his single Ochit Wally, featured by The Source Magazine, and this week he returns with 10-track album titled “Trappy Gilmore 2.” TG2 is a hard-hitting, unorthodox approach to modern-day trap music, much like Adam Sandler’s golfing technique in the movie, Happy Gilmore. If you had to put a label on Taj’s sound “Intelligent Street Rap” might fit well, as Macntaj past pain leaks through his music as a man who is today trying to better himself and his community around him. With features from XXL, 2Dopeboyz, and more for his work with Gunplay – the sky is the limit from this young artist breaking out on the West Coast.

More Information on Macntaj
Seattle-based rapper and vocalist, Macntaj, has lived in two worlds since early childhood. The son of a broken marriage, Taj bounced between his mother’s toxic household in south Seattle and his Ghanian father’s spiritual lifestyle on Seattle’s affluent Mercer Island.
At 15, gang life beckoned and offered Taj the respect he hoped would be an antidote to his anger and the negativity that formed the fabric of his home life. What it did offer was an initiation into a brotherhood that spanned Seattle and the notorious Garden Blocc neighborhood in Sacramento.
In his 20s, Macntaj found that the psychology of gang life no longer interested him. But he knew that he would never leave the relationships he had built. With the full support of his brothers in Seattle and Sac, Macntaj has focused his efforts and energy fully on music.
