|Tommy Tattz is a true embodiment of the American Hustle. No matter the goal he sets for himself, Tommy Tattz only knows that the power to succeed comes from hard work and focus everyday, best summed up in his motto “Say What You Do; Do What You Say.”|
Being a first generation child to Asian immigrant parents, Tommy Tattz was already on his way to just being a statistic to the general population: predominantly gang ruled environments, section 8 housing, rising crime rates, and decreasing standard of living. There was nothing to indicate that an opportunity to improve would present itself. So Tommy Tattz did what any real dreamer does in his situation: he hustled.
Tommy Tattz chipped away at every opportunity he could create for himself, to capitalize and propel himself forward. This eventually lead him to owning and operating a series of small businesses to some moderate success. But that’s not enough.
Initially, he never thought about becoming a rapper, instead he utilized his hustle within the business world. Eventually, he noticed all of his efforts were always tied into music. His tattoo clients were singers and rappers, and he even went ahead and opened up a tattoo shop with a recording studio attached to it. This lead to a realization.
The one thing Tommy Tattz is at his core an artist. On the radio these days, there are fewer songs that wanted you to party & enjoy yourself, and more songs that really don’t have a message at all, just a series of random sentences. The rap game needs a break from the nonsensical, and to be reminded that sometimes you just have to party. We’re alive. We have friends. We can be happy.
