Atlanta, GA: Toon’s sound and street-life realness has been influenced by many ATL traditions and icons, but he still brings a voice that is all his own. His philosophy on expressing himself was inspired by T.I. because, as Toon has explained in interviews, “T.I. is the first rapper I really listened to. I’ve been influenced by the way he raps about the struggle and the way he came up. I like folks that come from the bottom and talk about the struggle they went through.” After finding his inspiration in artists like T.I. (and also OutKast’s Andre 3000 who inspired him to be an individual), Toon began recording tracks and sharing them with friends and loved ones as he refined his sound and his style.
In 2018 he released his first big single, “Only,” a hard-hitting rap anthem that reminds listeners not to be blinded by success or struggle when you aren’t the only one who’s going through it.
