New Music: Taiyamo Denku – Still Waiting Featuring Benny The Butcher
The Milwaukee marauder, Taiyamo Denku, continues powering forward campaigning his recently released LP, “No Industry Standard”. Side by side with fellow producer cohort Dcypha, the pair continue delivering nothing but high quality Hip Hop. Enter the third single from said album, “Still Waiting”, featuring highly compelling jewels shared by Griselda Records own, Benny The Butcher.
The song begins with a sick piano melody that gets split by soulful horn and vocal samples. Denku
sets up the record’s concept with a short introduction that rides into the chorus that states, “no matter how things get, they still waiting for change / stages of life, sleep half of the days”. After the intital hook, Taiyamo
and Benny begin assaulting the mic with brolic bars of knowledge, hoping to wake up the unknowing. “Still Waiting” is a stand out cut from “No Industry Standard” and is the second feature from the Griselda camp. The album’s lead single, “Be Who You Are”
, was another super soulful clapper and featured Conway The Machine.
“No Industry Standard”
has quite a few hits on it’s hands. The two aforementioned singles, “Fabulous Life” with Lil Kim, it’s title track and much more. Benny is still pumping his “A Friend Of Ours”
project. A fan favorite of 2018, the project carries guest appearances by 38 Spesh, El Camino, Dark Lo, Skyzoo and others. Both albums are available to preview / purchase on Bandcamp, nice additions to add to your Hip Hop collection.

The seasoned Milwaukee beat bruiser, Taiyamo Denku, makes his triumphant return to your headphones with the full length album, “No Industry Standard”. Consisting of 16 tracks in total, Denku and Dcypha once again combine their musical powers to put forth an all around quality Hip Hop extravaganza. The pair continue to go against the grain of so called industry standards, funding the project out of their own pockets and completely independent. Keeping the entire album process in house allowed the duo to orchestrate some heavy features.
Fans of the Cypha Den Music imprint know very well that you can expect some impressive guests on their releases. We can find the lyricist bashing mics alongside the likes of Conway The Machine, Saukrates, Lil Kim, Chino XL, Royal Flush, J Hood, KRS One, and Benny the Butcher.
The names alone are enough reasoning for checking the album out. Don’t think for a minute that Denku is the type of artist that bases his career off of features. The Wisco wordsmith has proven his skills time and time again, whether it be inside of a cypher or performing on a vast amount of stages. He sets up all his own tours and has taken his act all across the Midwest and East Coast. As with his skills, Taiyamo has an extensive back catalog both as a solo artist and holding his own among Hip Hop’s most predominant acts.
“No Industry Standard” has seen 2 singles and 1 video released so far. The lead single, “Be Who You Are”, finds Conway and Taiyamo candidly speaking about faking the funk from two different points of view. “Fabulous Life” features the R&B styling of The Genius with the Midwesterner and Lil Kim speaking about what a “Fabulous Life” consists off. “Stand Back” was produced by Psycho Les of The Beatnuts, this release received a salt and peppered visual from Wes Tank. More singles will be released from the album in the coming months along with a video for “Mr. Sunshine”, featuring Saukrates.
Make sure to stay tuned for that but in the meantime, preview and purchase “No Industry Standard” on Bandcamp.
New Music: Taiyamo Denku – Fabulous Life Featuring Lil Kim And The Genius
Milwaukee based artist Taiyamo Denku debuts the final single before the upcoming release of the “No Industry Standard” album. Entitled “Fabulous Life”, the song blends potent Hip Hop lyricism with an R&B chorus courtesy of Boston vocalist, The Genius. To send the song completely over the top, the Collab King lands one of his biggest features yet alongside the Queen Bee, Lil Kim.
Produced by Australia’s Dcypha, he blends eighties styled keys and synth strings all over simplistically laid drums. Taiyamo handles the first and third verse, speaking about what his definition of a “Fabulous Life” is. Lil Kim arrives in true high fashion status for the second verse, rapping the kind of braggadocios flows that earned her a spot among the top tier femcees. The Genius adds in the perfect amount of R&B pizzazz to give the “Fabulous Life” it’s appealing commercial allure.
Taiyamo Denku is the epitome of what a true Hip Hop artist is all about. He sets up all his own shows, tours the U.S. consistently and is constantly crafting new music in the studio aka the Cypha Den. Over his lengthy career span, he’s shared tracks with some of Hip Hop’s elite such as Kool G Rap, KRS One, Sean Price, Jadakiss and many more. These accolades have earned him the title of “Collab King”. He has released numerous albums as well, such as his forthcoming project, “No Industry Standard”.
Releasing late this month, expect to hear collabs with Conway The Machine, Chino XL, Saukrates, Royal Flush, KRS One, Benny The Butcher and the aforementioned single with Lil Kim. “No Industry Standard” is currently available for pre-order via Bandcamp
while the “Fabulous Life” track can be streamed thru Soundcloud.
