Singer, model and designer Tama Gucci aka Kymani Floyd has steadily been solidifying himself in the indie music realm with his R & B songs layered with emotion and futuristic beats. In the past he was know for his singles, “Online”, “I Let You feat. X-Coast”, and his cover of “Thotiana”, which gained attention through social media platforms last year. Just recently the singer moved from his hometown of Miami, Florida to New York City to fully pursue his career in music and modeling full time. With his newest single “Crazy About Me”, he draws back to his futuristic sound to convey the ups and downs of relationships.
“‘Crazy About Me speaks to relationships where you may not see eye-to-eye but your love is resilient and infinite in spite of that,” says Tama Gucci. “I wanted to create a safe space for listeners within the song.”
LADYGUNN chatted with him not to long ago about how internet culture has helped him adapt through the pandemic, how much helps him to express himself as a Black queer person and when we can expect a full length album.
A lot of people loved your cover of Thotiana that you did last year. Did you think it would ever get so much attention?
As a Black queer artist in the indie music scene how has your work helped you explore all of the intersections of your identity
I also saw your really into fashion and have a Instashop Tama’s Corner. Tell us a little about it ( do you hand make or curate all of the pieces you sell?).
You’re originally from Miami but have now made your way to New York. What prompted this big move?
As someone who has been tied to internet culture like yourself how do you think it has helped you adapt to the virtual nature of everything currently?’
You have a mixtape and EP already out, when can we expect a full length album?
Hmmm I want my debut album to be massive like pink Friday massive ! I have some dream collabs that need to happen , but I have some amazing things coming 2021 that I think is the best music I’ve ever made it’s gonna be crazy !
