Tasha the Amazon

NOISEY "Fearless and peerless" http://noisey.vice.com/en_ca/read/tasha-the-amazon-fearless-and-peerless

COMPLEX “Tasha The Amazon absolutely murders the beat, spitting like an AK-47 to keep up with the production” http://ca.complex.com/music/2014/10/cubby-steady-now-karman-remix-feat-tasha-the-amazon

BLOGTO (TORONTO) "She sounds like...quite frankly Tasha has a sound that can't really be compared to any one artist, so I'm not even going to try." http://www.blogto.com/music/2013/11/breakout_toronto_bands_tasha_the_amazon/

NOW MAGAZINE (TORONTO) *4 N's "Our city’s next rap star? Hopefully." http://www.nowtoronto.com/music/story.cfm?content=195643

THE GRID *8/10 "FiDiYootDem—which loosely translates to “for the kids”—is an unrepentant party record with emphasis on wall-shaking, fuck-the-neighbours bass and narratives of debauchery. " http://www.thegridto.com/culture/music/tasha-the-amazon-fidiyootdem/

TORONTO IS AWESOME "ONE WAY OR ANOTHER: TASHA THE AMAZON IS ABOUT TO BLOW THE FUCK UP." http://www.torontoisawesome.com/music/the-reverb-volume-20-tasha-the-amazon-new-music/

TORONTOIST "There aren’t a lot of rappers you can use as a basis for comparison when describing Tasha the Amazon. [...] She is completely unlike anything we’ve heard before."

"FiDiYootDem is one of the cleverest, most intriguing mixtapes to have come out of Toronto in the last little while." http://torontoist.com/2013/12/sound-advice-fidiyootdem-by-tasha-the-amazon/

A bomb in a china shop.

Toronto's Tasha the Amazon is an artist, producer, and bad gyal. Notorious for rude stage antics and warehouse parties shut down by police raids, her unconventional lyrics deal as much with partying and hood mischief as they do with anarchy and civil disobedience.

In late 2013, after cutting her teeth in collabs and collectives, the German-Jamaican powerhouse released her first solo project, FiDiYootDem, to critical acclaim.

Produced by herself and partner Danthrax (together, they form the production duo Bass & Bakery), the project experiments unapologetically with the future of hip hop. Meet the new school.
