Meet Tazman James, a 31-year-old rapper from the United States. He’s the son of the late funk legend, James Ambrose Johnson Jr, who you might recognize as Rick James. Tazman’s mom is Tanya Anne Hijazi, a 53-year-old costume designer and actress.
Now, Tazman’s dad, Rick James, was a big deal in the music scene. He even scored a Grammy for co-writing MC Hammer’s hit song “U Can’t Touch This” back in 1990. But Tazman is carving his own path in the rap game, and he’s more of an underground artist.
In 2021, Tazman dropped a full-length rap album. It’s got a whopping 14 tracks and goes by the name “Objectify.” So, while his dad made waves in the mainstream, Tazman is making his mark in the underground rap world with his music.
