Youssof or (Tac) is an Egyptian Emcee that was born in the the United Arab Emirates on August 2nd 1997.
Tac now stands for nothing.
His name was origionaly The Anti Christ, which then resulted in 'Tac'. But it is still not relevant to any anti-god figure.
Tac is Youssof Hisham's alter ego, a poetic and extremely metaphoric Emcee, that channels anger and emotions into the very lyrics he uses to capture minds.
He is still a beginner, but has been confused for a veteran by many, he has developed a writing style of his own that he has honed from the very beginning 6 months ago.
He released his first single: 'Life' a very generic name for a very meaningful and touching song. It seems as though Tac has been inside of Youssof for so long, that at some point an explosion of expressions and emotions would collapse onto a canvas of destruction through a pen that ignites controversy and thought.
Youssof as a person, is very introverted, his friends are very supportive, and he always feels comfortable around them, they are "20% of the reason why" he does this.
His life is fairly livable. Although he is overfed, and in a private school, living an 'awesome' life. There is a part of this life that he calls his 'demons'. He says that these 'demons' are his parent's psych, and his brother's addiction to drugs, and the overwhelming stress that pushes him into managing an entire family all on his own, yet he claims that he is happy and grateful due to 'Emceeing' being his form of escape.
Youssof sees himself as vessel of multiple personalities. One of them being Tac, the others he wished not to note.
Tac is "Youssof 2.0" in his own terms.
Music has taken an Enormous toll on Youssof's life, positively. He is now able to let out so much energy, and pain into his music, that aims to entertain his listeners, and enabling them to relate.
Youssof has collaborated with one notable artist, Mc Brooks, who is now Youssof's mentor in emceeing, he teaches him all he needs to know to hone his craft.
AdeKwit is also a notable bit of importance in Youssof's life. He is a close friend and mentor of his. Who has taught him all the basics, and to this day, is a role model to Tac and Youssof. The rapper sees this to be in a position where he's receiving so much assistance and advice from teachers. And he can't help to feel as though he is a student in both school and music. He hopes to keep on making music, and hopefully allowing listeners to relate.
