Honcho God was born Taiwan Sanders-Boyd on 9/15/1996 in Plainfield, New Jersey. His love for music started at a young age, watching his family members rock to Percolator at cookouts and basement parties. His childhood dream was to become a Ruff Ryder, and becoming an artist was sparked by watching Meek Mill battle-rap on YouTube. Honcho appreciated his content and authenticity and began the journey to greatness.
Honcho God moved to a small town in NC in 2009. Although he worked tirelessly to gain exposure there, it was slow-moving. In 2017, he took a leap of faith and relocated to Charlotte, NC. There, he was able to connect with various local artists, DJ’s, promoters, and the like to build a steady and supportive following. He returned to his roots in NJ for a short time, and put in major work - meeting and working with local artists, doing features, and learning about musical engineering; His sound is unique - where drill, delivery, and talent create a musical trifecta that we never knew we needed.
The Queen City is excited for his recent homecoming in April 2021, and looks forward to all that he has to share with this city and beyond. His mother used to tell him that things she said went ‘in one ear and out the other’. But now, his music travels through the ears of his supporters and fans - and never leaves.
