MadeinTYO has managed to carve out a spot for himself amongst this new generation of rappers with his mixtapes You Are Forgiven and Thank You, Mr. Tokyo. He called on hit-maker K Swisha to add his bass-heavy production, which is sonically right in line with the street sensibilities of the south but is still more playful and breezy than most of his contemporaries.
MadeinTYO’s debut single "Uber Everywhere" shot up the radio charts, landing in the top 10 and achieving platinum certification from the RIAA. The internet started to buzz. With millions of digital streams, MadeinTYO caught the attention of hip-hop’s biggest tastemakers including Complex, the FADER, Noisey and XXL. The rapid success led Billboard and Spotify to pronounce MadeinTYO as the “Breakout Artist of 2016”.
And this is just the beginning. Now living in Los Angeles, MadeinTYO has collaborated with some of hip-hop’s biggest names, including 2 Chainz, Travis Scott and Big Sean.
His latest single, “Skateboard P”, is quickly skating up the radio charts on it’s way to becoming another smash. The track has already hit Billboard’s “Spotify Velocity” charts with more than 25 million streams. MadeinTYO called on Big Sean for a “Skateboard P” remix. The music video broke the internet, making both MadeinTYO and Big Sean a top trending topic on social media.
The success of “Skateboard P” confirms that MadeinTYO is a force to be reckoned with. He joined hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg for Adidas’ “Original is Never Over” campaign. The partnership is an indication to the young rapper’s ferocious future.
His crew might be called The Private Club, but MadeinTYO is poised to inspire the masses to become a part of this inner circle. You know what they say, membership has its privileges.
