Detroit’s Rising Star Talibando Drops “Blindfold”


From the heart of 7 Mile on Detroit’s East Side emerges a new rap sensation, Talibando, whose music sets the streets ablaze. His latest release, “Blindfold,” solidifies his status as a rising star in the Detroit rap scene.

Talibando has steadily built his reputation with standout projects like “Navy Music” and “WAR LORD.” He’s gained recognition for his solo work and collaborated with Detroit heavyweights such as Peezy, Rio Da Yung Og, and Baby Smoove, among others. Talibando’s close ties with fellow Detroit rising stars Babyface Ray and Veeze have positioned him as the anchor of the Navy Wavy movement, quickly making waves across the city.

The year 2023 has been monumental for Talibando, marked by the release of his highly acclaimed album, “WAR LORD.” This project features tracks like “Millions” with Veeze & LUCKI, “Make The Money” featuring BabyTron, and “Swim Team” with Babyface Ray. Talibando’s ability to seamlessly switch up his flow and his knack for picking infectious beats make “WAR LORD” a standout release in the Detroit rap scene.

Pitchfork hailed Talibando for his “hard-nosed kingpin raps, ” making listeners “want to thump their chest.” HipHopDX noted that he raps with the precision of a sharpshooter, diving deep into the world of a trapper plagued by paranoia.

Talibando’s confidence behind the mic has earned him a spot on Audiomack’s list of “10 Rappers You Should Know Right Now.” His commitment to pushing boundaries and staying true to his craft is evident in each track he releases.

As he continues to rise through the ranks of Detroit’s rap elite, Talibando shows no signs of slowing down. With another project on the horizon, he’s raising the bar for his rapidly growing fanbase. Talibando is set to hit the road this fall as part of Veeze’s highly anticipated “The Ganger Tour,” kicking off on October 10th at the Gramercy Theatre in New York City. Keep an eye on Talibando as he takes Detroit’s rap scene to greater heights with his unique style and unwavering determination.
