From humble origins in Detroit, raised on a healthy diet of Motown, Jazz, and Early Hip‐Hop – Terrel Wallace (aka Tall Black Guy) has been consistently building a massive online following through a steady stream of productions filled with incredibly clever sample flips and deft production chops ‐ being championed by the likes of Gilles Peterson (who included him on the Brownswood Bubblers 7... album), Lefto, Anthony Valadez, and countless others ‐ as well as recently being named the winner of the Robert Glasper Remix competition. With the tangible beginnings of worldwide recognition, Tall Black Guy has established himself to be one of the most influential producers from Chicago.
2011-2013 has seen TBG's first vinyl releases with bstrd boots, First Word Records, Ubiquity Records and his own imprint Tall Black Guy Productions. Plus projects with artists like: 80s Babies, The Primeridian, Malice & Mario Sweet, DJ Vadim and The Electric, Maylee Todd, Temika Moore, Teri Tobin, Skyzoo, The Colman Brothers, Cilla K and Shev Rock.

Tall Black Guy ft. Ozay Moore - Mon amie De’troit
“Mon Amie De’Troit is the first single from acclaimed Hip Hop producer Tall Black Guy’s debut album. Tall Black Guy has quickly established himself as one of the most talked about producers in hip hop. With fans including Gilles Peterson, Anthony Valadez and Robert Glasper (TBG won Glasper’s official remix competition in 2012) his album ‘8 Miles To Moenart’ is the subject of huge anticipation.
The single itself features a sublime vocal performance from Ozay Moore (formerly known as Othello of hip hop crew Lightheaded). The track deals with the subject matter of the full album - the city of Detroit. Over a soulful hip hop beat, Ozay’s low slung raps and subtle sung vocals paint an evocative picture of his hometown.”
