Originally building a reputation as one of St. Louis' elite battle rappers, Tef has has risen through the ranks and positioned himself as a seasoned veteran. His solo projects have been well received by the public, critics, and media outlets alike.
Tef has commanded large crowds opening for Lupe Fiasco, Talib Kweli, and Big Boi. His hits have successfully cut through the propaganda and reached the masses via radio play in multiple markets.
