Tef built his reputation as a battle rapper in St. Louis and has continued to grow and expand his vision to a broader spectrum. Always having penchant for politics and social justice – the subject matter easily found itself laced throughout his music. However, Tef Poe does not consider himself a “conscious rapper”. Humans are complex and multidimensional. His music is a reflection of that same human experience. This holistic approach has resulted in a healthy catalog of well received projects.
Tef has had the pleasure of working with the likes of Lupe Fiasco, Talib Kweli, Common, I-20, Killer Mike, Royce Da 5’9, and Big Boi. As an independent artist, Tef Poe has successfully broken through internet, radio, and television. Poe has been mentioned in major media outlets such as MSNBC, BET, Noisey, The Source, XXL, Washington Post, New York Times, The Smoking Section, and HipHopDX.com. Tef Poe is also The Source’s Unsigned Hype (2012), retired Champion from BET’s 106th & Park Freestyle Friday competition (2013)… and even has his own day (August 6th) in the City of Pinelawn, Missouri.
Tef Poe continues to forge his own path as an independent artist… traveling, performing, writing for the Riverfront Times, and actively organizing/fighting for human rights with groups such as Amnesty International, Hands Up United, Organization for Black Struggle, and Justice For Reggie. Tef recorded and released a track titled “Change The World”… and that’s exactly what he has set out to do.
