Turkey’s Superstar Athlete Goes In the Studio with Snaz to Drop “YEG To The World”
IZMIR, TURKEY – Born in Africa, raised in Canada, and living in Turkey, superstar soccer player Tam Nsaliwa has done it all. He was a member of Canada’s national team, he has played along other soccer greats like Dwayne De Rosario, Owen Hargreaves and Rivaldo, and has even played for two World Cup Champions. But Tam Nsaliwa is also making big strides in another big game… the rap game!
In June of 2012 Tam shocked the hip hop world with the release of his debut mixtape “BeatsAndBurgers” hosted by DJ Green Lantern. Tam sent the mixtape to Lantern and he immediately agreed to be a part of it and also produced one of the tracks. The mixtape created a huge media buzz and also received radio play around the world.
Due to his instant success, hip hop fans have been anxious with anticipation for Tam’s next release, which is a thirteen track album entitled, “YEG To The World”. For this album Tam called on super producer and fellow Canadian, Snaz. Snaz is known in the industry for his work with rap’s biggest names including Busta Rhymes, DMX, and Drake. The two superstars teamed up to create two tracks on the album that are sure to move your body and your mind.
This project was released after several months of anticipation from fans and a big buzz in the media. When asked for his thoughts on the excitement from “YEG To The World”, Tam had this to say, “I am a man of many passions. I am blessed to have success on the soccer field but I also love to be in the studio. Music is an important part of life as we know it, so to have people suddenly want my work to hold that position in their lives is a powerful feeling that I am grateful for. I put a lot of work into this album but this is only the tip of the iceberg so I thank all the fans from music and in sports for all of this support.”
Tam has also released a new music video called “E City: Part 2”.
