Tigo B – “Winner”
Following the launch of his restaurant Romeo’s Vegan Burgers, one of the first vegan drive—thrus to open in the Southeast, Carolina-based Hip-Hop artist turned business owner Tigo B delivers the VoVo-produced single “Winner.” An ode to the loyal ladies in his life, the release serves as yet another example of why the talented creative’s fanbase continues to evolve while simultaneously making it a priority to keep feeding his rap-leaning core support group.

Crediting his time spent visiting monks at Buddhist Temples in China’s Anhui Province for his newfound ability to reach an untapped level of spirituality through ancient meditation techniques, these practices have aided him tremendously in not only further developing his artistry but jump-started his journey into veganism; spawning the birth of his vegan burger brand after COVID-19 put his music career on hold.
In a statement to the press, the multi-disciplinary explains the record’s central theme:
“This song was created to give women their flowers for all the hard work and support they offer us as men. It’s about celebrating a woman who has held me down through thick and thin. They are winners, no matter the circumstances they are faced with.”
Born Monty Faulkner in the North Carolina city of Raleigh, Tigo B is an entertainer turned entrepreneur whose notable tracks include “Vibes” and “69” with frequent collaborator Ricco Barrino as well as “Where You Come From” featuring DJ Luke Nasty and Tigo discovered his musical gift at the age of 20 during an impromptu studio session where friends encouraged him to get on the mic. Since then, he has dedicated his life to honing in on his craft and developing as a well-rounded artist; spawning the release of projects ‘Return of The Artist’ (2013), ‘Rise: A Gemini Story’ (2014), ‘The Preylude’ EP (2015), ‘Playa Trap’ (2016), and ‘Better of Both Worlds’ (2019).
“Pops in particular literally listened to EVERYTHING. I’m talking from soca to reggae to classical to R&B,” Tigo states in a previous interview. Though an untrained ear may not be able to hear all the influences that inspire the music he creates, he humorously adds that “…everything but rock and country was played in my house.” His commitment to music these past few years has awarded him the opportunity to share stages with the likes of Jeezy, Young Dolph, Wale, Moneybagg Yo, and the City Girls. With more than 2M+ collective views on YouTube and 5M+ streams on Spotify, Tigo B is just getting started.
