Stream Tigarah "Fake Out" (Rio Disco MR. D Remix)

Snipshot_elx3nkax9

If Tigarah would be a proper Japanese noun it would translate to hot and spunky hip pop talent in English. I first wrote about the crazy fun beats of this Tokyo rapper back in April when she debuted her track "Girl Fight." Since then, Tigarah has been performing her songs at several showcases in Los Angeles to drum up momentum for an album release in the States.

Check out the electro-disco mix of "Fake Out" by Mr. D. The Japanese rap is a little abrasive at first, but after repeated play it becomes really fun. Part of my attraction to Tigarah's music is my unconscious desire to figure out what's she talking about.  Like I'm naively hoping to make sense of what she's venting (if you want to give it a try, get the lyrics here). But as with anything that just tastes right, you shouldn't overthink it. Let's get down and dirty with Tigarah. Eat up and swallow. (Thanks to Tigarah's fine handlers and MR. D. for providing this exclusive audio stream.)

The lyrics are also available in English... something I wish I would have realized when I first heard Tigarah because I made a valiant (but failed) attempt at figuring them out for myself. For some reason I thought that since I'm half Japanese and grew up listening to it being spoken (though never often enough for me to naturally pick it up) by my multilingual family I might have been able to figure it out. Wrong. (Considering that near everyone in my family is at least trilingual, you'd think they'd pass it on to their kids. Nope!) I did figure out some though. While my grandma's broken English is far superior than my broken Japanese, at least I made some progress.
