Wear­er of many hats, rap­per TAME, The Aspir­ing Me makes his dir­ect­ori­al debut with visu­als for his single ‘Geppetto’s Story’ with Ill Mannered Media.

Fused with col­ours and con­cep­tu­al visu­als, the video explores con­cepts of the ego and self-per­cep­tion. The view­er finds TAME in a moment of Gran­di­ose Delu­sion; while not­ing the nor­mal­ity, through every day scenery in the Great­er Third Ward dis­trict of Hou­s­ton.

TAME attempts to get his mes­sage out­side of his stu­dio at the formerly known Deli­as Lounge.

Hav­ing pushed the bound­ar­ies of his pre­vi­ous work, TAME rose to prom­in­ence in 2013 when Com­plex Magazine lis­ted his debut album ‘The Aspir­ing Me’ top ten music pro­jects to come out of Hou­s­ton in 2013.  In addi­tion to rap­ping and pro­du­cing, 2017 saw TAME made his debut as an inter­dis­cip­lin­ary per­form­ance artist: exhib­it­ing at the Hou­s­ton Museum Of Afric­an Amer­ic­an cul­ture and later in March 2018 at the inter­act­ive, film and music fest­iv­al SXSW; as well as Hou­s­ton arts organ­isa­tion Diverse Works.

He was even fea­tured in Solange’s ‘Scales’ per­form­ance and “When I Get Home” film  which he states had a big impact on his artistry dir­ec­tion. More recently he cre­ated a site-spe­cif­ic install­a­tion called “SOLE­VI­SION” fun­ded by the City of Hou­s­ton through Hou­s­ton Arts Alli­ance.

Cre­ativ­ity runs through his veins as he orches­trates and con­tin­ues to use his music as a pos­it­ive tool to uplift and inspire oth­ers. The single will fea­ture off his upcom­ing album “The Aspir­ing Me III” due to be released in August this year.
