Tanna Leone, in an interview with Complex, shared that he began rapping at the age of eight and wrote his first song when he was 11.
He was inspired by his mother, who was a spoken word artist.
Tanna describes his sound as “a great balance of melody and lyrics,” and says this project highlights his versatility.
Growing up, 2 Pac and DMX were his biggest inspirations.
Man, Pac for sure. DMX. My mom had a crazy CD collection. I was always the first one to get home, so the first thing I would do after I came in the door was go straight to the CDs. I would put on Tupac’s Greatest Hits. I would put in DMX’s Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood and I’d put on New Edition, just to get some melody in there. That was when I was in elementary school. I was really young. That’s kind of where it started for me, exploring on my own. But outside of that, of course, you’re listening to whatever your parents are listening to.
In March 2022, Tanna Leone was signed to Kendrick Lamar and Dave Free’s pgLang record label.
Leone was announced as the latest addition to the pgLang roster in an Instagram video posted on March 9, where the artist introduces himself and answers questions including what drives him and what he’s most excited for.
Sleepy Soldier, his debut project with pgLang, is a compilation of new and old tracks that Tanna has been working on for the past two years.
