From Big Daddy Kane, Whodini, the Fat Boys, Biz Markie, and U.T.F.O. to Lil' Kim, Jay-Z, the Junior M.A.F.I.A., Hurricane G, and the late Christopher Wallace, aka the Notorious B.I.G. or Biggie Smalls, a long list of rappers has represented Brooklyn over the years -- and in the 2000s, Tah Phrum Duh Bush emerged as one of Brooklyn's articulate hip-hop representatives. The "Bush" that Tah is referring to in his stage name is the Flatbush section of Brooklyn, where he grew up. Other Brooklyn rappers have represented Bedford-Stuyvesant, East New York, Coney Island, Canarsie, or Red Hook, but Tah's stomping ground has been Flatbush (which is also where Lana Moorer, aka MC Lyte, grew up), and Tah brings a recognizably northeastern flow to the table. Tah would never be mistaken for a West Coast or Southern rapper; his rhyming is very much a product of his Northeastern Corridor upbringing, and the East Coast MCs who come to mind when Tah is rapping range from Q-Tip (of A Tribe Called Quest fame) and De La Soul to the Roots. Tah has some of Quest and De La Soul's humor and quirkiness, but he also has some of KRS-One's philosophical approach at times (without being as overtly sociopolitical). Tah's song "Life and Death Dichotomy," for example, is philosophical, contemplative, and thought-provoking in a way that brings to mind KRS' reflections.
