ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: TOKI WRIGHT


by petercortle | August 4, 2010

The Rhymesayer Crew—the brainchild of Atmosphere frontman Slug—has been one of underground hip-hops most steady labels. Toki Wright, coming out of Minneapolis, continues the tradition of lyrical mastery with the single “More Fiyah” off his album “A Different Mirror.”

“More Fiyah” is a safe first single to show the world what Toki’s about. The beat is nothing spectacular, but rather defers to Toki to really turn the heads. Toki comes in with a “fiyah” that is undeniable, spitting his lyrics in a street gravel and switching up the flow to make things interesting.

Check out “More Fiyah,” and keep your eyes open for more from this Twin Cities standout.
