CADDILLAC TAH LIFE BIOGRAPHY:
Caddillac Tah was born Taheem Crocker on August 14, 1979, and grew up on the streets of Jamaica, Queens. He began writing rhymes in 93 -94, but was never fully interested in rap. He grew up a few blocks from Hollis, Queens, and his influences included Run-DMC, Rakim, EPMD and Kool G Rap. Caddy’s original plan was to become a DJ, but ended up an MC. This doesn’t bother Caddy as he was just happy to get off the streets in his words “Music kept me away from the streets, which is good.”
Caddillac titled his debut album “Pov City Hustla”, Pov is a short form for Poverty and he said he grew up in Jamaica, Queens so in his words, he lived in poverty. Pov City Hustla was supposed to drop December 18, 2001, it featured three singles “Pov City Anthem”, “Just Like A Thug” and “I Gotcha Ma”. But despite these singles and being on Jennifer Lopez’s “Aint It Funny (Remix)” with Ja Rule, which he also co-wrote, the album still remains unreleased. He also appeared on Faith Evans' The Good Life.
After years of little solo material from Caddy in 2005 he released his first solo mix tape entitled “Pov’d Out Unleashed” which is thought to have featured majority of tracks that were intended for his debut album. Features included former Death Row artist Eastwood, UGK’s Bun B and his label mates Chink Santana, Young Merc and the late D.O. Cannons to name a few. This mix tape was followed by the release of A Soldiers Story hosted by DJ Kurupt later that year.
Caddy is still waiting for his debut solo album to drop and when it does you can expect some heat from it but for now the fans are going to have to make due with the tracks he appears on, on the M:I:3 mix tape.
