“Detroit’s hip-hop scene has a storied history and a bright future, and Nametag Alexander’s solo efforts have earned him a rep around the country as one of the city’s brightest young voices.”


Tag grew up in Detroit’s east, west, and north sides, constantly moving around with his mother to avoid repercussions of his father’s drug addiction. He dealt with the struggles and nomadic lifestyle by burying himself into his notebook, penning lyrics about his experiences and drawing inspiration from legends like Rakim. He quickly became the latest member of a family chock full of R&B and gospel vocalists, rhyming alongside friends and relatives.


He got involved in Detroit’s hip-hop history early, and in a big way: his first placement was on Slum Village’s compilation “Dirty District Vol. 1.” From there, he continued with appearances on Motor City classics such as “Dirty District Vol. 2, and Black Milk’s “Broken Wax,” “Popular Demand” and “The Set Up” with Fat Ray. But while contributing to others’ projects, Tag continued to build his own footing with a collection of critically-acclaimed mixtapes, EPs and a full length album, “The Name Is Tag.” He eventually earned the respect of indie rap heavyweights and has musical content featured on ESPN’s First Take, XXL, Metro Times and more.
