When Johnson was 14 years old, her mother died, which caused Johnson and her siblings to be parceled amongst several relatives; Johnson wound up with a cousin who molested her, Johnson was known as the background dancer/model in the music video for Big Daddy Kane's "Ain't No Half Steppin" and had a bubbly, upbeat personality.
This caused friction between Taj and Coko, who felt that Taj's recognizable face and cheerful demeanor shielded her from criticism from the press.
I don't know if I would put a specific label on any of it. In the mid-late 1990s Cusack appeared regularly as a model in photospreads and on covers for Muscle Media 2000, the muscle magazine published by her then-fiancé Bill Phillips.
Originally, Johnson was both a singer and an emcee; she can be heard rapping the bridge over the original version of Right Here and I'm So Into You, and is the primary female performer on the song Blak Pudd'n.
She co-wrote a number of SWV songs, including Right Here from their debut album, It's About Time, and You're the One, which also features Gamble as a co-writer.
The youngest of six children, Tamara Johnson was raised in Brooklyn.
Her father died of pancreatic cancer when she was nine.

And by passionate I mean I don’t even hate anything (*cough*The Blind Spot*cough). And then there’s that whole thing with putting out “for your consideration” ads for herself.
Last year I wanted “The Hurt Locker” and Kathryn Bigelow to win and thank God, they did.
Have you read the Brad-picks-Emily-not-Chantal story? It could be that he is (and by that I mean “his sources are”) right and Brad Womack is engaged to Chantal O’Brien. His Twitter added the detail that it would be coming on Monday. (I am a FORT lurker, but I’ve never posted anything there.) I really hope it’s true. I thought Chantal would bring out his spark or something, but she seems to just be determined to fall in love.
